Some video slots are released ahead of the times. They do not get popular because they do not conform to the trend and they get lost in the maze of new releases perennially taking place. It is good to resent such games later and hope that they then click with the online casino players. Cowboys & Aliens from Playtech is one such video slot that was released in 2012. It can be played at online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

Cowboys & Aliens is a branded slot developed under license from Platinum Studios, which holds rights for more than 5,000 comic books. Cowboys & Aliens is a graphic novel that tells the story of an alien invasion in 19th century. The plot revolves around a cowboy a priest and a female traveller who get together to save a group of townspeople abducted by aliens. It has been earlier released as a movie starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde that grossed over $170 million worldwide.

In keeping with the character of the brand, Cowboys & Aliens has graphics designed in the format of comic books. It is a high variance video slot with 9 paylines and a top line payout of 10,000 coins. This payout is awarded by the UFO, which is also the wild symbol. The other thematic symbols are cowboy, female traveller, alien, priest and Indian. The win animations with these symbols run frames from the comic book. An innovative feature is that the winning combinations need not start from the first reel.

Cowboys and Aliens is a feature rich slot game. In the Alien Weapon feature the gun randomly fires up to 4 times and turns symbols on the other reels into wilds. The game logo awards scatter payouts and it also activates 8 free spins with Comic Strip Wilds. In each spin a rectangle encloses a number of symbols all of which become wilds.

The Alien Attack is a bonus game on the second screen. You have to choose from the cowboy, the female and the Indian to fight the aliens. The girl has 20 lashes of the whip with low accuracy. The Indian has 12 arrows with medium accuracy. The cowboy has six shots with high accuracy. For each alien killed you can win cash bonuses, 2x multiplier or extra ammunition. More bonuses will be awarded for killing all the aliens. The animated graphics of the alien attack are simply awesome.
