Adventures in Orbit is a space themed game featuring a whole host of characters and symbols including an alien, a robot, various 1950’s style spacecraft, planets and space debris. The game is designed in a cartoon style, so it’s certainly more The Jetsons than the Alien film series, with a fun and friendly feel. As well as the base game, you have a pick me bonus feature and a free spins bonus feature to keep you entertained.
This 888 Games designed slot plays out on the popular 5×3 configuration and has a set number of 25 win lines. The highest paying symbol in the game is a little green space alien sitting within a domed gold and red space ship. The little green guys looks particularly happy and you will be too if you land five in a row, as 10,000 coins will be hitting your bank balance. Green and red spaceships are next on the pay table, paying 2,000 and 500 coins respectively, while a strange blue floating robot has a top prize of 400 coins. A Ray Gun, a purple asteroid and three colorful planets complete the standard symbols on the reels.
The Wild symbols shows a window in a spacecraft, with the letter ‘I’ in the word ‘wild’ represented by a further spaceship. This wild doesn’t have a prize directly associated with it, but will substitute for any other symbol to enable additional wins. As well as the standard wild, there is an additional ‘wild x 2’ symbol and any wins using this symbol to land a win will be doubled.
The scatter symbol shows a space-inspired suitcase that has both a red and a green button on the side – what happens when you press them is anyone’s guess! Land three of these scatter symbols and you’ll enter the free spins feature, with a total of 10 spins, while each additional scatter will add another 10 onto the free spins total. Unfortunately, there is no multiplier in place when you land a win during this feature, however you can retrigger the feature at any time with 3 or more additional scatters. If you do retrigger, the number of spins won will simply be added to your existing spins total.
The other bonus feature is activated by the friendly looking red space alien, although with just one eye and two fingers on each hand. Hit this alien three or more times and entry to the bonus feature is yours. The game starts with six barrels on the surface of a planet and you’ll choose one to reveal a prize. The next round sees you choose one of six engines, which will reveal either a prize or a game over symbol. Avoid this symbol and you’ll progress to further rounds, the best of which features an array of weird space aliens. Progress all the way to the end to win the biggest prizes.
You’ll play Adventures in Orbit as if sat in the cockpit of a spaceship, all the symbols appearing in the window of the ship – not great if you need to see where you are going. Each of the symbols is nicely designed and brings a nice splash of color to the dark blue background of space. The win line indicators either side of the reels add further color, while the almost movie-like soundtrack does a great job of building the atmosphere in this outer space themed slot.
The best option in the game is the auto play which can be quickly and easily set to play for 10, 25, 50 or 75 free spins.
Adventures in Orbit is a fun game which is high on entertainment. The cartoon style visuals give the slot an endearing quality from the start, while each of the symbols pays homage to space as it was imagined back in the 1950’s. The gameplay is good too. While not overly original, a free spins round and an involving pick me feature both provide nice variety from the base game and some of the wins at this game are eye catching. All in all, this makes for a slot which is certainly worth looking out for.
