Get ready for an onslaught of retro-futuristic 80's nostalgia. Attack on Retro online slot from Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios features stark, neon-blue lined reels set against the backdrop of a glowing city. The backtrack is energetic electronic music and the symbols are all designed to cast you back to an era of leg warmers, synthesizers and walkmans. The slot’s design borrows heavily from the future vision that people from this decade had with plenty of nods to movies like Back to the Future. Free spins with multipliers, random wilds and hyperspins are all on hand to get you the biggest possible win.
Chunky, glowing J, Q, K and A card icons are the low-value symbols.
The high-value symbols are a power glove, a boom-box, a keytar and a hoverboard.
2 cyberpunks - Billy and Jesse, are the game’s main characters as well as wild symbols that substitute for any other symbols and can appear as 3-symbol high stacks.
“Free Spins” is spelled out in glowing letters to represent the scatter which will trigger the free spins mode.
If you land 3 scatter symbols anywhere on the 3 middle reels, you will activate free spins round. The game will give you a choice of three different free spins modes, each with a different value multiplier. The 2 spins mode comes with x5 multiplier, 5 spins with x2 multiplier and 10 spins with x1 multiplier.
Each reel has a hyperspins button below it, which allows you to respin any individual reel for an extra wager. The amount you will be required to bet to respin is set per reel and is calculated according to your chances of landing a winning combination with your respin.
Two insect-like robots creep up and down either side of the reels. If they happen to line up with each other, they will infest the reels with drone symbols, which are then destroyed by lasers to reveal wild symbols.
Attack on Retro ticks most boxes to qualify it as an entertaining and rewarding slot. The base game is replete with winning chances, thanks to the hyperspins feature, which essentially allows you to dictate the outcome of your spins, if you are willing to pay the price. The random wilds feature also adds plenty of excitement and appears in both the base and bonus game modes. Being able to choose how many free spins and what level multiplier you want adds greatly to the interactive nature of the gameplay, and you could walk away with a cool $100 000.00 for your efforts. This slot carries a reasonable RTP, combined with high volatility and consistently delivers wins and scatter symbols. The soundtrack is one of the highlights of the game and you may find it hard to resist bopping along with the beat. The only drawback with this title is that the maximum bet allowed is a modest 20.00, so you won’t become an instant millionaire with this slot, no matter what you do. This isn’t the richest slot out there, but you would be doing yourself a disservice if you missed out on the fun.
