Max Damage and the Alien Attackby MicrogamingMax Damage and the Alien Attack is a game found at casinos powered by Microgaming Systems. This game is in no way, shape, or form a “slot machine”, rather players participate in a 1980's style arcade game akin to Space Invaders moving their defending ship left and right and firing with the Space Bar or using the Auto Fire function. The game has multiple levels and upon start-up players are given 6 “lives”. The game features boosters and upgrades. Boosters award extra life-strength and shields and upgrades include missiles and nukes. Payouts and awards seem to be random for destroying alien ships.
The game can be entertaining and a lot of fun for those who aren't concerned about choosing an online casino game based on variance or pay tables. And the possibility of winning 10,000 coins for destroying any given ship certainly beats the old rewards for arcade games of simply being able to type your name in the winner's queue. If this game proves popular (released September 2012) we can expect to see more arcade style 'slots' from MGS and other makers in the coming months and years.
