Space Invaders are back! Following their initial attack on Earth in 1978, they are back again in 2016 and it is your job to sit down behind the screen of your computer, desktop or mobile phone to try and defend the humanity.
What is more, you will be given a chance to have great fun, relive one of the greatest arcade game ever made and make some money in the process if you get lucky.
Playtech have tantalized our imagination with a game that should be a fitting tribute to worldwide beloved original and we must admit we can’t wait for it to be officially released.
What We Love
We are not afraid to admit it, we are suckers for classic titles and generic games that had us all occupied long before we could even possibly dream and imagine of getting 3D or virtual reality games. Therefore, Space Invaders has been one of our favourite games and we know that is can be hard to understand.
There is something special about those pixelated titles as they require your imagination to be turned on and fully active.
Playtech pulled a little twist on Space Invaders video slot as they made it look alive with engaging colours and well suited music. Furthermore, we love the fact this game pays both way and that you can line up winning combination from left to right and from right to left.
Game’s creators decided to spice it up even more with great Special features which all revolve around Wild symbols.
The game’s simplicity should be applauded since Playtech opted against fitting in some major changes that would take us away from the original arcade game’s essence.
Much like the original game, Space Invaders video slot is likely to become a timeless title gamers will return to whenever they get tired of those flashy, glitzy and glossy games which come and go in a wave.
What We Do Not Like
To be honest, this section will be hard to fill in with some compelling arguments. Call us biased and blind, but we really do not see any major shortcomings around this game.
Playtech paid great attention to details remaining true to the original title with pixilated graphics, generic music and a reel grid frame that will have you thinking you are standing in front of an arcade console.
If we are to pick one thing that can have a negative effect on the gamers or the game itself than that would have to be the bet value. Space Invaders, as we understand, will be available from $0.01 to $100 and we admire Playtech’s effort to make it affordable and appealing to all kinds of gamers.
Still, $100 is a tad too much for those who want to take their bet to the maximum and take aim at the top prizes. This way Playtech have narrowed down the audience as plenty of beginners and causal gamers who are looking for pure fun could be put off by the top price.
Space Invaders is a timeless title and this slot have every right to hope to achieve similar reputation. Perhaps our verdict is a bit over the top, but people said the same about the arcade game from 1978.
And look where it brought them. If you think that Space Invaders are not that of an infectious game, you are wrong.
Just have a spin or two and let’s talk about it after that. Both-way wins, Invaders turning Wild and UFO Wild feature can be pretty persuasive.
