Resident 2 Slot Machine

If you liked Resident 9 Line (one of Igrosoft’s most successful early endeavors), then you’ll no doubt enjoy Resident II, the sequel to the hit game that so many people still play to this day.

Based on my initial impression, Resident II keeps the World War II theme, but improves upon it in a number of ways – notably, the graphics. Everything is crisper, cleaner, and better detailed. While most of Igrosoft’s early games were drawn in a relatively crude and simple style, Resident II’s presentation is more professional and polished, perhaps reflecting the fact that many of the artists and programmers are more experienced and seasoned than when the first game came out some years ago.

This game looks great, with it arguably representing Igrosoft’s finest design work. Saying that, we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves here, so why don’t we delve into the gameplay and see what’s new?

An Interface Worth Investigating

One of the biggest changes is that many of the graphics are now rendered in 3D (save for the fire extinguisher, oddly enough). Even the spy on the bottom is drawn in crisp vector graphics as opposed to the cruder hand-drawn appearance he boasted before. Coupled with an interface overhaul, you get a game that looks so much fresher and polished than the previous installment.

While the game’s actual setup looks to be the same, the much-needed graphical overhaul gives the game a more appropriately contemporary appearance that allows it to stand with the flood of new slot games that are hitting the market.

Sticking with What Works

From a gameplay standpoint, Resident II plays almost identically to the original, which will prove to be a bit disappointing for some. Saying that, many games retain a certain endearing popularity for a good reason, so if it isn’t broke, why fix it? The folks at Igrosoft seem to agree, as the game retains the standard 5x3 reel setup and 9 paylines that the first “Resident” game had.

As before, coin denominations can’t be changed but you can put up to 25 coins on any of the available paylines. This has the effect of making the game cost a minimum of a dollar per spin, which is expensive and proves Igrosoft simply doesn’t make penny slots. But of course, that comes with the potential for huge rewards (see below).

The interface below allows you to access the game’s pay tables and help section, as well as adjust the number of active paylines and spin the reel. Sadly, the game lacks an auto-spinner, which would have been a nice addition.

Cracking the Safe

Resident II makes you work for your winnings, as there are no opportunities to earn free spins. But what it does offer are a whole host of other ways to win – the “double” button and bonus round, namely. In addition, there are wild and scatter symbols active as well as a winnings multiplier. Coupled with the 5,000-coin jackpot (and that’s just the base value!) and you’ll quickly see that Igrosoft doesn’t skimp on prizes.

Every winning spin lets you go double or nothing – you get to pick a face-down card, and if that card exceeds the value of the dealer’s, you double your winnings. If the reverse is true, you lose what you have.

Gathering Evidence

The game’s bonus game looks much like the ones offered by Igrosoft’s other games. It gives you are given the chance to select from a variety of containers, most contain prizes, while one contains a dud that ends the game. If you pick all of the available prizes you are sent to the super bonus round, where you are given the chance to select from more containers. Selecting correctly gives you huge prizes, but even a wrong guess means you still walk away with your accumulated winnings thus far.

On Close Inspection

While it is somewhat derivative and doesn’t really deviate from Resident 9 Line’s established gameplay formula, Resident II still gives the game a much-needed facelift, making it a worthy contender amongst the series of flashy video slots games being churned out today. Igrosoft has only been around since the 1990s, and yet they have established a die-hard fan base that continues to play even their older titles. When you open up Resident II and play it for yourself, you’ll quickly understand why this is the case.

Igrosoft may not put much stock into its visuals, but the quality of the gameplay in all of its games more than compensates for that fact, and Resident II is no exception to that formula.
