Coming across this Flight Zone game for the first time, needless to say, I was attracted by it. Graphics in the game are not too bad for its age, but the gameplay itself was not what I had expected, not up to my expectations, but being an action fanatic, finding a really satisfying action game can never come easily.
The logo is the Wild symbol, comes stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4, doesn't pay for itself nor double any wins, and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter symbol. There are 2 kinds of Scatter symbols, both don't pay for themselves, which is a big letdown really, considering that even the Wilds don't pay anything. Getting the Missile Scatter symbol on reels 1 and 5 at the same time triggers 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. More free spins can be retriggered and the Mission Bonus game can also be triggered during the free spins. Getting the Mission Scatter symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 triggers the Mission Bonus game that plays in 2 separate missions. Mission 1 is to locate 3 atomic fuel tanks at the target site, blow them up, win coins, then move on to Mission 2, whereby you pick out one of the moving vehicles to try and hit the leader of the team. Coins award for each member of the team is indicated on the left of the play area. If you're lucky enough, you may just hit the right vehicle and get the leader. I only got this once, hehehe.
10 free spins with a 2x win multiplier isn't that much at all when both the Wild and Scatter symbols are non-paying. Retriggers are more like a dream, as usual. Wins can never be big, small mostly, average at times, because the paytable simply doesn't provide any potential for big wins. The highest paying symbol is only 1000x the line bet, double that up and it's only 2000x if won in a free spin, and that is simply just not enough for a good win! I've even had a zero win from the low-paying Free Spins game and that really sucked! My best score was only 28x my bet, won by getting that team leader in Mission 2. From the Free Spins game, it was only 18x my bet.
