Aliens are hardly new to online slot games, but when Playtech takes the reins to provide us with a slot based on an alien hunter, it is always worth checking it out in more detail.
This game is an older effort from Playtech, and it features a more basic format and appearance than you might be used to if you have only ever seen their modern games. But don’t leave just yet – Alien Hunter has a great look to it if you love cartoon games.
The game provides us with five reels and 25 lines.
You can wager between a cent and five dollars on each of the paylines here. It is also possible to place a bet of up to 10 of your selected coins on each payline. This is done using the ‘bet per line’ option, which unusually shows your bet in money rather than in coins.
The wild is an alien in a cage… and it doesn’t look as though it is going to stay in there for very long! Five wilds on a line trigger the top prize of 10,000 coins if you placed a bet on that line.
Meanwhile, there is a hunter ship icon used as a scatter. Three or more scattered around in any positions will win you through to the free spins feature.
Aside from the free spins, you can also collect bonus eggs on reels one and five. Do this, and you get through to the bonus feature. You can secure up to 720 coins in this feature if you manage to avoid the egg with an alien in it for the duration of the bonus.
You can play another bonus if you get three alien hunter bonus icons on an active payline. This enables you to play a skill game where you must try to shoot the escaping aliens. They come in three colors, and some escape faster than others… How good are you at shooting them and preventing them from getting away?
This game may look very basic compared to many modern Playtech titles, but as you can see, there is a lot of depth to it. With two bonuses plus the free spins to trigger, you can play this quite happily for ages!
