Thursday September 13, 2012 :  MICROGAMING LAUNCHES OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD NEW GAME ‘MAX DAMAGE’
 
Retro arcade-style game should appeal to a wide audience
 
The Isle of Man-based online gambling software developer Microgaming announced the launch of an interesting new online slot Thursday, going retro with an arcade-style of game play that will appeal to a wide audience.
 
Max Damage and the Alien Attack is based on popular old arcade games in which the hero is on a mission to defend the Earth from alien invasion. Play it here. Huge no deposit bonus to try it out.
 
With 9 levels, 3 ‘boss' ships and the familiar vertical screen layout, the game fuses nostalgia with today’s most advanced gaming technologies, ensuring that every attack on the invading life form is enhanced by premium graphics, high quality sound effects and top level gaming power.
 
Players are given six lives to work their way through the game, with bets placed and points awarded according to the number of aliens destroyed.
 
Enemy spacecraft can fly at the player’s ship either individually or in formation, heightening the danger or upping the player’s chance of losing a life. However, the aliens don’t have it all their own way, as Freebies, Boosters and Upgrades are available to players throughout the game, helping them to defeat the assailants and increasing their chances of winning a big payout.
 
Potential Freebies include Missiles, Wormholes and Nukes, while Boosters can provide the player with enhanced Life, Health and Shield levels. Unlike standard slot games, Max Damage also enables players to earn a place on the game’s leaderboard, which displays top scores and fires up the level of inter-player competition.
 
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, said: “Max Damage and the Alien Attack is a radical departure from the conventional slot format and we’re very excited about the potential for this new arcade-style game. At Microgaming we’re always looking for new ways to produce innovative content, so this move into a whole new style of game is particularly important to us.”
 
Max Damage is the first in a series of arcade-style games to be released by Microgaming, as it looks to bring an extra dimension of choice to online gaming.   Play it here. Huge no deposit bonus to try it out.
