About Cosmic Quest 2 Slots

Cosmic Quest 2 follows on from Cosmic Quest, one of the best games on the Rival Gaming roster, and one that excels in its simplicity. But how does this sequel stack up against the original, does it take the concept to a new level or does it fail where Cosmic Quest succeeded?

Game in Action

Cosmic Quest 2, or Cosmic Quest 2: Mystery Planets to give it its full name, adopts a very similar aesthetic to the original. Also just like the original, the biggest symbol here is the rocket-ship wild, which pays as much as 5,000x for 5 of them and also acts as an expanding wild during the free spins round, turning an entire reel wild.

The graphics in Cosmic Quest 2 are very simple, even more so than the original, and the cozy feeling that the original provided is somehow missing from the sequel. This is no doubt thanks to the symbols themselves, replacing quirky images of spacemen and space animals with simplistic planets and electronics.


Bonus Feature

The free spins round is much better here than it was in the original, because not only are there more free spins to trigger, with the game offering as much as 50 if you’re lucky enough to land 5 of the jetpack symbols, but there is also a 2x multiplier added to those 50 spins. Admittedly, it is not unusual to go several spins without winning anything, but over the course of any batch of free spins you should be able to generate a considerable profit.

Cosmic Quest 2 also has a main bonus round, although we didn’t enjoy this as much as the first one and also found that the wins it generated were consistently less. Of course, that is offset by the free spins round which regularly offers bigger wins, but it would have been nice not to have that trade off and to instead have a game that succeeded on both levels.

Summary

It seems that whatever we liked about Cosmic Quest 1 is missing from Cosmic Quest 2, but to offset that, there are also a few things that were missing from Cosmic Quest 1 and can be found in the sequel. Firstly, the graphics and the main bonus round are much better in the first game, whilst the free spins round is considerably better in the sequel. We actually preferred the first game and think that most players would, because the negatives do not outweigh the positives, and for us Cosmic Quest 2 is only deserved of a 8/10, as opposed to the 9/10 we scored the original Cosmic Quest.
