We kept commenting during our Aliens review about how good the menus alone looked in this game. That’s usually a sign of one of two things, either A) all the developer’s attention went into the graphics and not the game itself or B) it’s a high quality pokie all the way around. With Aliens, it’s 100% a case of B. In fact, it’s one of our highest rated pokies EVER on

Scroll down for all the details, but this pokie combines exciting alien-blasting action with some payout possibilities that are hard to wrap your head around. Aliens not only tests your nerve (it actually is kind of tense during the bonus levels) but also your patience since it can seem like you are spinning for quite a while sometimes before anything ‘good’ happens. But budget appropriately and you’ll enter into a world of bonuses that could make it well worth your wait.

Detailed review


Jackpots & Bonus Games

Aliens is really three games in one, with each possessing their own special bonuses and part of the storyline:

  • Level 1: The Search
    This is the pokie’s base game in which you will collect some special symbols with each real money win (and lose some on spins where you don’t win). As you collect these, you will also save up some special wager multipliers which will come in handy later. Speaking of, collecting a net of 10 symbols will advance you to...
  • Level 2: The Encounter
    This is a free spin round where you start off with 10 free games. As your character is now engaged in a firefight with the aliens, ammo clip symbols will appear at random on the middle reel. Every time you spin without a clip showing, one is subtracted from your on-screen counter, and conversely one (or more) will be added to the count when they appear. You can earn more free spins during these free spins, and getting your clip count to +10 before you run out of bonus games takes you to the final stage.
  • Level 3: The Hive
    You are now in a battle to the death against the queen alien, and the duel will start with you having five free spins. For each spin, you’ll hurl a grenade that causes a random amount of damage that is determined based off the multipliers you acquired earlier in the game. You’ll be able to monitor the queen’s health with each spin, and if you manage to eradicate her and the hive, a 240x multiplier on top of your original wager (plus everything else you won during the bonuses) is yours.

It’s of course not that not easy to get to this level of the game. However, if you are one of those lucky players, obviously it’s more than worth it no matter what happens. Even so, our Aliens Touch review people landed some pretty big bet multipliers evein stage two, so don’t make killing the queen the be-all end-all by which you judge this outstanding pokie.

Mobile play

Aliens is part of NetEnt’s mobile touch line. We go into much more detail in our review of Aliens Touch, but the game is a near-perfect port (no app download required) that has kept all the same great features as the PC version including:

  • Smartphone-optimized with no need to first download apps
  • Clear sound even on small smartphone speakers that you won’t want to mute
  • Same three-tiered game system that can lead to massive real cash jackpots
  • Quit in the middle of the game then come back and pick up where you left off later
  • Looks and feels more like a video game app rather than a mobile pokie

Why Aliens Is Worth Playing

If our review of Aliens hasn’t convinced you already, we simply don’t know what else to tell you. If you need to hear a downside, it’s that the breaks in the real action (getting to level two or higher) can seem somewhat long, but when Aliens can hit.
