If you are a fan of classic movies, horror or sci-fi movies, then you have surely heard of the famed Aliens series. However, you may not have known about this excellent 15 payline, 5 reel slot from Net Entertainment based on the 2nd instalment of the classic series (well, Alien and Aliens were classics, the less said about the other two the better). With an unparalleled presentation and cool gameplay features, this slot may just make as much of a splash as the movies did in the cinema world.
Aliens will first take your breath away with its amazing presentation. The graphics here are well-crafted and present an atmosphere that is, quite frankly, rather scary. The graphics are complemented by fantastic effects and music that is well done and quite eerie on the whole.
In terms of gameplay, the most interesting feature on hand here is the ability to move through various levels the longer you play. The bonus rounds come thick and fast in this game, albeit often ending just as quickly as your marine is taken down by a face hugger after only a few steps down a first-person shooter style corridor. Each successive level offers up greater opportunities for multipliers, bonuses and hence winnings as your marine kills aliens and advances down the corridor. Should your marine make it all the way to the Queen's hive you will face off with Ripley's nemesis armed only with a grenade launcher. If luck is with you, you can take down the Queen for a huge payday. If not, prepare to be eviscerated by a slimy creature from the depths of space. The movie tagline was "in space, no-one can hear you scream" but let me assure you, the others in your house sure will if you let this game get to you.
