Graphics and Theme
The graphics are made up of entertaining cartoon animations that are finished to a high standard. The animations’ quality is so good that it could be turned into a hit animation movie if the plot was developed some more. To the right of the reels, you will see the yellow makeshift spaceship, ready for take-off. You will see one of the freakish plants with huge white teeth and roots for arms to the left of the reels. The reels are encased in a wooden border with a teal background. The symbols bring more fun to your screen by featuring even more exotic plant life and alien materials.
The soundtrack is made using a series of string instruments that create a light-hearted tune that builds a little suspense. It sounds like something from a Tom & Jerry chase scene. When you hit spin, the reels rotate with a flickering noise, and the soundtrack intensifies in volume and tempo. Each bonus symbol will trigger a unique sound when it lands on your screen. Finally, winning combinations will be surrounded by green vines to highlight your win, and a quick clicking noise will sound from your speakers.

The low paying symbols include the playing card symbols jack, queen, king, and ace. Five of a kind aces and kings are worth 1.5x your stake. The six high paying symbols include a crop circle, alien mushrooms, a barn, an alien spaceship, a Venus flytrap, and a farmer. The farmer is worth the most and will pay out 15x your stake for five of a kind.
