When I first booted the Reptoids slot from Yggdrasil Gaming, I thought I was getting a game based on dinosaurs of some sort. Instead we have been given an alien conspiracy game that, like the idiotic conspiracy theory it is inspired by, ends up lacking the critical elements that could make it compelling.
Reptoids is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that takes place in a small town apparently infiltrated by an alien race that are masquerading as regular people. Of course, like all good conspiracy theories, the government is on it and is trying to keep it all under wraps. The game has a military theme to it and the symbols include copper medal, bronze medal, silver medal, gold medal, police man, nurse, scientist, black haired woman, general, and president. An alien is also present and serves as the game's wild symbol.
The feature set in Reptoids is neutered, featuring wilds, sticky wilds, scatters, and free spins. Compared to the more recent video slots from Yggdrasil, this is a disappointment, as we've seen a ton of different features packed into the newer games from the company.
This game is decidedly underwhelming. It feels bland and a lot like an older slot machine, which is a disappointment when Yggdrasil has done so well with their more recent games. I can't say that it's a terrible slot, but it's not the best I've come across either. This game had a lot of potential and to see it not used is a bummer.
Still, if you're David Icke, or you believe the world is controlled by a race of reptilian Illuminati who killed Elvis and JFK, or even if you're just into aliens and strange themes, then Reptoids might be a game for you. So get on the ship, don't get probed, and spin the reels with this strange video slot… it's not out of this world, but it's decent enough.
