Attack of the Zombies Slot
Attack of the Zombies is a 5-reel, max 50-pay line online slots game created by Genesis Gaming. Ah, Zombies … as ubiquitous on our TV and movie screens as Super Heroes have become on our … er … TV and movie screens. Probably the recent modern trend for zombie-related stuff can be traced to AMC's 'The Walking Dead' – the show about a group of non-Zombies escaping the brain-munching hordes in Atlanta. This show has now been running for seven seasons, and some of the original characters are still alive, amazingly.
Here, the focus shifts to England, and Victorian London in England, to boot. Perhaps in a nod to the latest Ghostbusters movie, the four protagonists are four lovely ladies who are having to deal with a local zombie infestation. Some of the zombies must have been royally disappointed to be infected, as they are wearing crowns.
This slot has a maximum of fifty pay lines, all of which are selectable. You can also select your coin size, from 0.01 to 10.00. Your final bet per spin is your coin size multiplied by the number of lines you have in play. When you're ready to get down with the undead, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest available payout in this game is for three identical non-royal zombies, which will win you five times your coin size. The 'jackpot' of five hundred coins is won by landing five identical zombie-hunter symbols on an active pay line.
A glowing golden brain is the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for any other symbols aside from the bonus scatter symbol.
The bonus symbol can win you cash if you land enough of them anywhere on the reels. You need three to earn yourself a win, and the maximum you can win is with at least five.
If you land three or more bonus symbols then you activate 'Antidote Free Spins'. Here, the fearsome zombie hunters have sadly been zombified. You can save them by landing the antidote symbol on the central reel. Each time this happens one of the zombie hunters is cured and becomes a wild. If you save all four, then you receive an extra free spin and the feature ends.
This slot has a lot of promise – including an excellent opening video – but just about fails to deliver. The gameplay is 'just okay', and the graphics and sound FX could have been better. A bit of a missed opportunity from Genesis Gaming.
