Microgaming has just launched Castle Builder II. This sequel along with the original Castle Builder integrates elements of arcade play and online pokies. However, this may not attract hard core arcade game fans because there is no mechanical dexterity or interactivity involved. For that, another title from the portfolio of Microgaming is recommended. It is Max Damage and the Alien Attack. Max Damage is a space ship shooting game, which is one of the most popular genres of arcade games.
The Microgaming game is based on the Max Damage franchise. The online casino game has premium graphics, high quality sound effects and top level gaming power that the original was known for. You control a spaceship and fire at attacking aliens using the designated keyboard buttons. You begin with six lives and lose a life every time an alien ship sneaks past you. But you can collect boosters that enhance life, health, shield and weapon upgrades apart from awarding direct payouts. There are different types of boosters that include blockades, nukes, wormholes, free missiles and lasers. You also win payouts for destroying alien ships and a massive payout for killing the alien boss.
Max Damage and the Alien Attack consists of nine levels, which means that there will be nine successive alien attacks. Once the aliens are defeated in one level you advance to the next one. As you progress, the aliens will become more aggressive. The enemy space ships will fly closer to the player’s ship, may appear in formations and can shoot at or collide with the player’s ship. The online casino game also includes a top scores leader board. This displays the highest scores registered as well as the dates and rankings of the players. This brings a different kind of interactivity with players at Microgaming online casinos competing for bragging rights. You have to complete the last level and kill the last alien boss if you are to be eligible for a rank on the list.
Later Microgaming released an online pokie based on the Max Damage brand. It has the popular 243 ways to win structure. The symbols are set in the console of a space ship to give an arcade game effect. The Max Damage logo is a stacked wild symbol. The other thematic symbols Max Damage, the space station, the spaceship and the earth. You can play both games at Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace.
