Aliens is one of our favourite films- the 1986 cult film directed by James Cameron and starring Sigourney Weaver (the 2nd film in the series). If you are at all into Sci-Fi, you’ll know it well.
So it was with excitement when we got our hands on the Aliens Slot to review. This game is a Net Entertainment production (the people behind the Starburst Slot), and boy, have the done a job on it. (Have a look at their Dracula Slot as well if you like these “visual feast” type games). It successfully manages to convey the menacing atmosphere of the blockbuster movie, and the game play ain’t half bad either. Give it a go over at Leo Vegas.
Aliens™ is a 5-reel, 3-row, 15-line video slot. There are 3 different levels, Wild substitutions, Multipliers and re-spins.
This game comes out of the box with 15 bet lines (fixed), 1-10 bet levels and different coin values.
Aliens was produced under licence from 20th Century Fox. With 3D graphics, it’s themed on the Sequel to the original 1979 film: Alien.
Aliens was one of those rare beasts- a movie that arguably improved on the original. (Terminator 2 is another example we can think of- you can play the Terminator 2 Slot game here are OCK as well, by the way).
The first thing that you will notice are the amazing graphics -the best we’ve seen since the Forsaken Kingdom slot- then you’ll need to get to grips with the wild substitutions, re-spins and collectable multipliers. Your mission is to run a sweep of infested areas looking for Alien activity and blast through waves of Alien attacks to reach the Queen Hive- there are considerable rewards on offer if you manage it.
The game is split up into 3 stages:
Level 1: The Search.
Do a sweep of infested areas for Alien activity and collect symbols (each with a specific slots multiplier value) to add to your Alien Activity Meter. There are nine levels on the meter- you need to get all of them to progress to Level 2: The Encounter.
Level 2: The Encounter
You’ll get a rewards on the very first spin. Your mission on this level is to go head to head with Aliens and progress to the Queen Hive. You will have the multipliers that you bagged in Level 1 and will be used on wins on the symbols shown. You can notch up to a 6x multiplier on 3 symbols in a spin for some juicy win here.
Watch out for the Ammo Clip Reel. If ammo appears on the centre of the reel it will notch up the Ammo Clip Counter which will trigger re-spins. The Ammo Clip Counter reduces by 1 after ever spin.
Level 3: The Hive
There are 5 re-spins awarded here. This is where you need to obliterate the Queen Hive. Each step on the Hive Health Meter nets you a reward with a 240x multiple if you manage to destroy the Queen and the Hive. The damage you can inflict is randomly generated – your grenade strength combined with the multiplier is what drives the level. Watch out for the multiplier on the middle position of the multiplier reel to get up to a 10x boost.
You can win up to 3,817x your stake on the Aliens slot. Not bad! This is a medium to high volatility slot which may run in to some dry periods, but when it’s hot, it’s very hot.
Just in terms of gameplay and effects, this slot game is a cut above the rest, a true Net Ent trail blazer. They have certainly shaken the market up. We love the film and we love this slot- it gets the thumbs up from us. If you want a higher variance slot, try the Invisible Man slot, though- also from Net Ent.
The only thing is, there’s alot going on, so we’d advise you practice for a bit on our free Aliens slot game first to get the hang of the game. Then bet for real at BGO Casino. There are 20 Free Spins going here.
