If you have played land based, online or mobile slots for a while, then you will probably be well aware of just how popular aliens are among developers. We can only assume that they always appreciate the opportunity to make up something pretty random for the various symbols, and while it does not always end in a great game, it usually ends up at least looking different to the norm. It Came from Venus! is specifically based around plant-like aliens and, as part of their 3D slots range, those aliens and everything else on the game look very good indeed. However, when every game looks good, none of them can look truly outstanding, so we are still looking forward to checking out the gameplay and features to discover whether this one is a winner.
What to Expect
Just as the overall visual style rarely changes on the BetSoft reels, the same can be said of the basic gameplay – which does at least allow fans to sample various games without needing to learn something completely new. In line with other slots from around this time, It Came from Venus! makes use of thirty win lines along a conventional board, and packs the reels with stunning symbols that include the aliens, the farm they landed on and also the military, who are never far away when something like this happens according to the movies.
The wild action is a highlight on this game and it kicks off with a standard wild card to fill in for other symbols. That is just the tip of the iceberg, however, and players will also experience multipliers if they land a wild on reels two, four or both. There are also collapsing wilds, which come into play if you land a full stack of any symbol on a reel. Those symbols will compress into just one symbol after any existing wins are paid, allowing a couple more to land on the board, and they will also pay an instant prize even if conventional win lines are not taken into account.
Oddly enough, if the wild symbol appears on the third reel, it is not actually wild. Instead, it will drop off the bottom of the board to be collected and when you manage to grab five of them in total, you will receive twelve free spins. Now, as part of the bonus, the symbol is back to being wild on the third reel and it will also stick in place if and when it lands on that reel specifically.
Hit a helicopter on reels one, three and five at the same time and you will enter a pick bonus that is tied closely with the theme, and there are also scatters which are just there for cash rather than features, and also a gamble game if you want a little more from any existing win. As a nice touch, even this gamble game is themed, and that is always nice to see.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
It Came from Venus! is pretty unique, even in a world full of alien themed mobile slots. We like just how far the theme itself integrates into the gameplay not only through symbols but also features, and there are enough of those to keep things varied and interesting. This game is not BetSoft at its best, but it is an entertaining jaunt on your phone or tablet that quite a few players are sure to enjoy.
