Leading software suite Play’n GO have brought those zany, space-dwelling aliens back for another bonkers round of intergalactic madness in Reactoonz 2.
The slot retains the core DNA that made the original such a smash hit with slot fans, while sprinkling a handful of features to take the overall gaming experience to the next level. Expect to find a repeat of the cascading reel feature, which removes winning symbols from view and fills their void with a new set tumbling in from on high. As mentioned, also back is the cluster pay mechanic, as we make our way back to the same parallel universe in the hunt for huge rewards.
Let’s see how the highly-anticipated follow-up stacks up against the 2017 prequel, Reactoonz.
Reactoonz fans will find very little difference visually between Reactoonz and Reactoonz 2, with most of the design elements transferred across to the follow-up. That’s hardly a criticism on Play’n GO’s part, though. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The supplier has applied the same bright colour scheme, set in a parallel cosmic realm, with the semi-transparent grid-face sporting a colourful blue background. The bizarre cartoon-like alien symbols, meanwhile, are as bright and wide-eyed as we remember them, and the accompanying backing track manages to capture the essence of the game perfectly.
A scan of the paytable will reveal 8 creatures, split between high and low-paying symbols.
The slot is presented across a 7x7 grid-face, mirroring the original, and again you’ll need clusters comprising at least 5 symbols to land yourself a win. They can form in either horizontal or vertical directions, provided they touch one another. The bigger the cluster - the bigger you profit, and a set made up of 15 symbols spells the more lucrative prizes in this high-potential game. Find 15 Pink Reactoonz characters nestling together in a cluster and you’re looking at a win worth 500x your wager - the highest in the game.
Reactoonz 2 Wilds
Wilds form a key aspect of the gameplay in Reactoonz 2, acting in all manner of weird and wonderful ways to assist you. Bear with us, because it’s all fairly complicated..
With every spin, the game selects one low paying symbol at random to fluctuate. Should the chosen symbol end up forming part of a winning cluster, the Fluctometer gets charged with a new Electric Wild that appears. Fill the meter entirely, and between one and three Electric Wilds will make their way onto the reels, which replace all other regulars and zap them in the process.
Those Wilds have even more tricks up their sleeves. At the start of every new game round, Uncharged Wilds may show up on the reels, but remain pretty much useless until a winning cluster forms alongside them. This then prompts them to transform into their Electric namesake and moreover, you can charge the Fluctometer multiple times with any spin. But be wary: its power is cut off once Gargantoons make an appearance.
There is another meter at play in Reactoonz 2 to spice up the action: the Quantumeter, which summons both Gargatoons and Energoon Wilds.
The Quantumeter fills up by 1 charge with every non-Wild symbol zapped by Electric Wilds, and resultingly unleashes additional Wilds into the fray!
Check out what it this powerful beast can do across 4 Levels of charges:
- Level 1 - 55 charges. Unleashes 4 1x1 sized Energoon Wilds.
- Level 2 - 85 charges. Unleashes one 2x2 Energoon Wild.
- Level 3 - 110 charges. Unleashes one 3x3 Gargatoon Wild.
- Overcharge - 135 charges. Adds 2x Multipliers to all Gargatoon Wilds
Just like the Fluctometer, the Quantumeter will short circuit if the Gargatoon Wild shows up, rendering it disabled and ending your chance of any respins.
Those pesky Gargatoons make a reappearance if you manage to reach Level 3. Here they activate a new cascade breaking into two separate 2x2 Gargatoons. These can then dissemble into 9 versions of 1x1 Gargatoons upon triggering a further cascade!
But we’re not done there.. Should at least 2 Electric Wilds hang around following all this madness, watch as the Wild Pair explosion comes into play, playing out in one of two possible scenarios:
- If the Electric Wilds sit in adjacent positions, this will destroy every symbol on the reels apart from Wilds, and a further cascade follows.
- Should they lie in non-adjacent slots, all symbols between them will be destroyed, prompting another cascade.
If, following the cascade, no further wins are forthcoming, all symbols perish once more, and cascades then progress until less than 2 Electric Wilds remain.
Hope you got all that?! Good, because it took us a while to work it all out. If not, fire up the game and experience all the crazy turbocharged Reactoonz Wild action for yourself!
