The wombat says: Madness, pure madness. Genesis Gaming have a churned out a game that is totally and utterly bonkers. And we though the Moon Temple slot was a bit out of left field!
Let’s explain; Once upon a time there were some magical creatures all living happily ever after in Unicorn Land.
They were pastel-coloured, had cute little faces and calm friendly dispositions. Until one day, when a bunch of flesh-eating zombies invaded them. Suddenly these cute creatures turned into weapon wielding maniacs covered in zombie blood – as they battled to defeat the Undead. Just when they thought they’d had it, along came an serious-looking unicorn who saved the day. How? By blowing the bejesus out of the Zombies with a machine gun that’s attached to his head (where his horn should be). This unicorn could star in the Terminator 2 slot, no problem!
Don’t believe us? Then check out the slot’s intro. It’s all there. Think My Little Pony Meets the Walking Dead and you’ll get the idea. We’ve got other games like the Divine Fortune slot with mythical beasts in them, but this is the only one that mixes it up with a few zombies!
Look and Feel
Along with the mad theme comes some excellent graphics and animations. This wombat particularly likes fountain of shell casings that rain down on the reels during wins, and the zombie head waving a white flag of surrender with the words “Big Win” splattered with blood. Then there’s the cute-but-angry creatures themselves who each brandish a different weapon with which to exterminate the Zombies.
The spins are fast and the soundtrack is frantic and dominated by an electric guitar. In fact we’d go as far to say the music is a bit too much. Unless you like Billy Idol of course, in which case you’ll love it.
Machine-Gun Unicorn is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 10 fixed paylines – although wins pay from left to right and right to left, giving you 20 winning options. Your high value symbols are the purple, pink, green and yellow magical creatures, and 4 coloured Zombie Heads in jars. The highest paying icon on the reels is the Red Jar Zombie Head which pays 100 for 5x in a row.
The Golden Unicorn is the eponymous hero of Machine-Gun Unicorn slot and appears on reel 3 only as the Wild, substituting for all other symbols It will also trigger the game’s only bonus feature.
Unicorn Bomb Feature
Once our Golden Unicorn lands on reel 3 and if there are jarhead zombies on the reels, all hell breaks loose and the Unicorn will destroy them all in a machine gun frenzy.
There’s a cash win for each exploded Zombie head and the value will increase the more Zombies you have on the reels. If there are no zombie heads to explode when the Machine Gun Unicorn symbol lands, you’ll scoop a nice little earner anyway. Plus, your wins are subject to a multiplier based on your total bet. Nice work!
If you can get past the initial madness, this game can be an entertaining way to spin for few hours. But it lacks the meaty gameplay of other slots and with only one bonus feature, it can be hard to stack up the winnings. Still, it’s worth a punt for the weird ‘n’ wonderful theme.
Wombat score: 3/5
