Based on the popular 1986 movie directed by James Cameron, Net Entertainment presents the Aliens slot machine. This is easily one of the best looking slots in the business and the way it presents the story through a unique interface and a 3-level storyline make it a must-play for every player out there, and especially for fans of the movies. Aliens has the standard five reels, three rows and 15 paylines.
To help players get in the zone for the game, it starts off with a great clip that follows the spaceship as it reaches the base on an alien planet. Once the game starts, there are three levels to go through. The background image changes as you advance and the interface is very characteristic for the Aliens film.
The first level is the search in which the player scans the areas for alien activity. Getting winning combinations will help move the search along and the meter on the top of the screen will present the current stage and the multipliers that are available. Once the level 1 meter is full, the action will be moved to the second level, called the encounter.
Ammo symbols are used to get more ammo during the game and fight off the aliens as you approach the hive. This is the third level and the objective here is to destroy the Queen. As the hive health drops, different payout levels are reached.
The symbols in the game are the alien egg and the fully grown one but each of them come in five different stages based on their evolution.
The evolving feature for the symbols and for the gameplay of this slot is really what makes Alien so exciting. It is hard to stop playing as it will quickly begin to feel more like a high-end video game than just a regular online slot.
The wild symbol is the big W and it can substitute for any regular symbol on the highest paying line. Various multipliers are collected throughout the levels and they can be taken from one to the next in order to get more winnings.
While there is no standard scatter symbol, the ammo clip reel and the grenade in the third level do a similar job in this regard as they can activate re-spins and help finish the level faster for bigger prizes.
