Alert! Alert! Two huge monsters have crashed into the cities and causing mayhem, leaving huge footprints everywhere on the roads. It’s Monster Mayhem in the cities of Real Time Gaming! But not to worry, that happened about 2 years or so ago. Today, looking at Monster Mayhem, there isn’t anything much in it to shout about. The quality of its graphics, animations and sounds are nothing outstanding at all – they’re just as nice as every other game. 1 star down.
Not only that, Real Time Gaming had released a game that actually lacked a lot of punches. The two monsters, oddly named Smash and Crash, are the Wild symbols, but has no win values to them. The Scatter symbol, the City, has a payout of only 50x total bet for 5-of-its-kind, while the highest paying symbol, the monster’s footprint, carries only a 2500x line bet win. Such a low and disappointing paytable for a fairly new game. 2 stars down.
The only feature in Monster Mayhem is the free spins game, triggered when the two monsters appear anywhere on reels 1 and 5, randomly awarding a miserable 5 free spins up to 10 free spins. The win multiplier starts at 1x total bet for the first spin, 2x for the second, 3x for the third, and so forth, up to the 10x maximum, if you can get 10 free spins that is. No retriggering is possible, and the 10 free spins is all you can get. 1 star down.
Playing the game was so frustrating! The two monsters do not take orders very well as they seldom appear together on the reels. One without the other is no good at all. The free spins come like once a year in Fall. Dang! I hate seeing my credits simply going down the drain without any stops. The small tiny winy payouts were really pathetic. They really made me feel sick. Several real play attempts but still no win from it. Ah well, nothing more to do but just drop it! 2 stars down.
