Graphics & Theme
The Aliens slot was created in cooperation with 20th Century Fox, and is based on the renowned movie, so you can expect amazing visuals, with stunning 3D animations, and an interface like no other, where the aliens literally come to life in a dark atmosphere. Everything is accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack that perfectly sets the tone for an action-packed adventure and a memorable gaming experience. Overall, Aliens looks and feels more like an arcade game then a slot.
The game’s wild symbol is the Weyland-Yutani Corporation’s logo. The game has several bonus features that come in three different levels. On the first level of the game, players have to activate it by landing winning combos with numerous symbols to fill up the multiplier meter found above the reels.
On the second level, players get to be a marine that encounters and kills aliens while passing dark hallways. Each spin awards a win, and after each spin the marine will shoot the aliens. In order to get ammo and stay alive, the player needs to collect from other marines before the multiplier meter is full. If the marine makes it to the end, he reaches the alien hive.
On Level 3, the marine encounters two horizontal reels, with a reel for grenade strength and a grenade multiplier. The player gets five Free Spins and during each spin the marine will throw a grenade at the hive. The better the combination of multiplier and grenade strength, the more damage the hive suffers. If the marine runs out of ammo, the game is over.
Aliens is definitely not your ordinary video slot as it introduced plenty of arcade elements in the gameplay. This game is definitely worth playing, especially with the lights out and volume up – if you aren’t too afraid, that is.
