Space Invaders Review
Whether you like video games or not, everyone's heard of Space Invaders. It's an iconic game that literally led to shoot 'em up arcade games and delivered so much fun and frustration.
Thankfully, the famous game has been given an online slot developed by Inspired Entertainment's Bell-Fruit Games. Space Invaders plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines and features 5 modifiers and 6 different bonus features. Be sure to blast your way to wins in Space Invaders.
The original game was developed by Tomohiro Nishikado in 1978 and manufactured by Taito in Japan. Back when it was created, it was a visual spectacle but today it may look quite dated.
The developers have gone for a nostalgic classic look to stay faithful to the source material. Whilst it may look like an eyesore, it's intentional and will be a delight for true fans. All the familiar aliens are back along with all the ships making it a great adaption.
As for audio, it's amazing with those familiar technical sounds mixed with shooting noises. Alongside that, you have noises of the ships paired with typical coin noises. There is a lack of music, but there are so many sounds going on in the background that you'll barely notice.
You'll be able to pick up and play the slot as the core gameplay is straightforward. There are 5 modifiers, but they are easy to follow and the same goes for the bonus features.
It's fantastic to play and will be an absolute fan's dream to play as the game stays faithful to the original game in tone and style.
Sadly, the RTP for this slot is a mediocre 95% which is quite low for an online slot as the standard is 96%. The gaming slot features high volatility gameplay leading to larger wins at a less frequent rate.
As for the maximum win, you can only win up to £250,000 in this slot with no mention of a maximum stake but a cap of £250,000.
Back in 2016, Space Invaders was transformed into a slot from Playtech but Inspired Gaming have now taken over the mantle. In a nutshell, Space Invaders from Inspired Gaming is thrilling and full of amazing moments with the modifiers and the bonus features.
The downside is the win potential with the ridiculous RTP. However, that's the only issue and if you can get past it, then Space Invaders is absolutely brilliant and shouldn't be missed.
