Following on from our Aiens and Robots slots articles, this week we're seeking out some of the best science fiction themed slots games. We've got several exciting games for you to try out here including two awesome 3D slots from developer Betsoft, three games from Net Entertainment and a game from Winaday called "Stardust" that all new players from Free Slots 4U can play with $40 free!
We kick of the fun with Betsoft, the undisputed masters of 3D slots and their It Came from Venus slot game. This game has a fun science fiction B Movie theme with a Venus Flytrap like alien critter that crashes into the backyard of an American farmer called Skeeter. There's no need to panic as this alien is pretty friendly and sits on the left of the reels as Skeeter throws him snacks from the right of the reels!
In terms of features you get Wilds with random multipliers, stacked collapsing wins, progressive jackpot, a "Feed Me" free spins feature, "Helicopter Bonus" and "Double Up" bonus.
The Feed Me bonus is triggered by landing 3 food sacks on the center reel during the base game. The food sacks turn into Sticky Wilds, substituting for all symbols (except the Scatters and helicopters).
The Helicopter Bonus is triggered by landing 3 or more of the helicopter icons. The idea behind this bonus feature is that Lieutenant Pogue has captured the alien and hid it in a crate. You must click on a crate to try free the alien. If you click on the right crate you'll win a cash bonus with a multiplier between 20x and 50x.
The Double Up bonus is a fun take on the standard gamble game feature. Triggered after ay win, Skeeter tosses various items towards the alien and you have to guess if the alien will catch the items in its or not. Guess correctly and you will double your win.
As well as Betsoft's brilliant 3D graphics there's lots of great sound effects, music and funny speech in this game too.

On the reels you'll find rockets, planets, crystals and playing card symbols. In terms of features a Double Wild symbol anywhere on the reels will replace all other symbols to help create a winning payline. This Wild symbol also doubles your win, should it appear on a winning line. Stardust also features a "Pick me" style bonus round that is triggered when you get three or more crystal symbols on the screen. In this bonus future you must pick one of the three crystals to get a bet multiplier that will multiply the total bet from the actual spin to give you your cash prize.

The first of our Net Entertainment powered slots to make into our list, Cosmic Fortune is a 5 reel, 15 payline game which boasts no less than 5 jackpots including 3 progressive jackpots.
With 5 jackpots, 2 Bonus Games, Free Falls, Avalanche Feature and Wild substitutions this game certainly has plenty to keep players engaged.
In the base game you want to get 3 of the "S" Scatter symbols to trigger the 10 Free Falls feature. Activate the Free Falls Bonus Game and go for coin wins or the chance to trigger the Jackpot Game by collecting the marbles that fall from a spaceship.

Cosmic Fortune has the 'Avalanche Feature' style you might have seen in other Net Entertainment games such as Gonzo's Quest. When you have a winning combination, the winning symbols will vanish and new symbols drop down to take their place giving you the chance to win again. If you get lucky you can string together "chains" of wins.

As with Cosmic Fortune this game features Avalanche reels where winning symbols explode and vanish with new symbols falling down to take their place. There are 4 different Free Fall modes each with its own different Wild.
An Avalanche Meter has four crystals and lights up for every avalanche fall. If you can get four successive Avalanches one of 4 Free fall modes is triggered.

Planet Fortune is a 3 reel, 40 payline video slot powered by Play'n GO software. This game has 40 pay-lines and 5 reels. This slot has a fantastic retro-scifi theme, taking inspiration from classic science fiction movies and pulp comics.
Watch out for the Wild Robots - they act as substitution for all symbols in the game and if you land 3 or more you will trigger the Robot Revolution free spins feature which will award you 10 spins. During this feature, all Wild symbols transform into Sticky Wilds which means they remain as such for the duration of the spins. They will move one reel to the left with each spin, vanishing from the reels when they reach the end.
If a randomly triggered Magnetic Mayhem feature occurs two or three adjacent reels can stick together and symbols will expand across them, increasing the chances of a win.
Get ready for the hilarious Space Wars and an intergalactic battle for control in this fantastic looking slot game from Swedish developers Net Entertainment!
Space Wars is a 5 reel video slot with 40 paylines and is themed around the idea of five extra-terrestrial species slugging it out for possession of a powerful crystal.
We can tell the game's designers had great fun coming up with this game! On the reels are a cast of quirky looking alien critters including a crazy looking green alien with a toothy grin! The cast of 3D characters hover against a planet background and there's plenty of neat animations. Overall the presentation of this slot game is top-notch.
In terms of features Space Wars is a fairly simple affair offering as it does no scatter symbols or bonus symbols. The two goodies you get in this game consist of a Wild and the bonus feature which is a respin that triggers after any win. The winning symbol gets sucked up into a cloning machine, on the right of the screen, and the clones then stack onto the reels giving you a chance of big wins (including "Mega Wins" and "Super Mega Wins"). This neat feature not only looks really cool but helps up the excitement as you wait to see the results of your respin.
Overall Space Wars is a fun, fast paced slot that's easy to learn and the innovative respin feature sucks you into the action! This game is certainly worth playing in free play mode if only to check out the funny aliens and their animations that accompany the respin feature.
Developers Yggdrasil serve up a classic science fiction trope of aliens taking over the world in this brilliantly designed slot game.
It's the 1960s and the Reptoids are taking over the world and walk among us, unnoticed. Your job is to uncover them using your "Alien Detector Field".
Spin the reels and the Alien Detector will scan the reels and uncover the aliens in top positions in government and society, rewarding the player big wins and wilds as it does so.If you can trigger the free spins round by landing a scatter symbol in the detector) you'll get 7 free spins and more tools to uncover this extra-terrestrial conspiracy in the form of sticky wilds!
