96.28 per cent


Starting in the basement, the player must move Sparky & Shortz up the levels to surface at the alien world so they can complete their mission. The game’s boost metre increases the multiplier potential, increasing the multiplier number when activated.

The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the power cell scatter, and can appear on all reels.  

Moreover, three identical symbols on one reel become a stack, increasing the win multiplier by one. The win multiplier is displayed on Shortz’s body. Winning combinations are multiplied by the displayed value. The win multiplier resets between spins, except during free spins.  

On every spin, Sparky tries to activate the boost metre. If the boost metre is active, each stacked reel increases the win multiplier by the value of the boost metre.  

Lastly, power cell scatters can appear on reels one, three and five. Three power cell scatters trigger 10 free spins where the boost metre is always active. Landing three power cell scatters adds five more free spins, which are capped at 100. 


Play’n Go’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano, said: “We knew we wanted to head into Outerspace once again, and we liked the idea of robots meet aliens. A strong narrative was really important in this game. And to have the protagonists Sparky & Shortz super animated is a great way to connect with players as they then invest in the story.”
