Alien abductions are seemingly as American as apple pie, fireworks, and watching the god-awful boring sport of baseball. The activity is widely reported throughout the country, with "special" people claiming they have been sucked up into a flying saucer by a tractor beam at night, and encountered aliens apparently obsessed with probing them in the rear. Nolimit City's Tractor Beam slot is heavy on alien abduction but thankfully leaves out the butt examinations. What we ultimately get is a slot that has a funny theme, but some ho-hum features, that is a take it or leave it experience.
Tractor Beam is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that takes place in a field complete with a rickety telephone pole and trees. Icons in the game include wood pieces that have standard slot icons like J, Q, K, A, as well as a brown hen, sheep, pigs, cows, and a road sign that features an alien.
Features in the game include wilds, scatters, and stacked symbols, along with a few special features. The first special feature is called Beam 'em Up and, upon random activation, all the low value symbols are removed from the reels, leaving you more chance of making a match with the high valued symbols. The Clone Attack feature duplicates one of the symbols and adds it as big stacks that may be on one to four reels. Finally there is an Abduction Spins round of free spins that is triggered by 3 or more scatter symbols. During the free spins round, winning symbols will be beamed off the reels for the remainder of the round, increasing the chances of making a match with the remaining symbols.
Overall I'd have to say that the feature set is pretty basic when you compare them to the other Nolimit City slots that are in the wild. The game's layout and features give Tractor Beam a return to player (RTP) percentage of 96%, which is on the mark with what we have seen from other Nolimit City slots. The game fully supports mobile or PC play, so if you want to play on your smartphone or tablet, you can. The slot looks and plays identically no matter the platform, so you'll get the same experience.
This slot is okay, but there are much better Nolimit City slots out there. The game just doesn't pack in many compelling features, and I got bored after a few minutes of gameplay. I'm sure some people will dig Tractor Beam, but for me there are much better options out there for most punters. Make sure to take a look at the other games from this developer, as there are some real gems in there.
