Tractor Beam is a part extraterrestrial, part livestock video slot from Nolimit City. When games developer Nolimit City released this online game on July 2, 2019, its press release downplayed its visual appeal but this game makes up for it with potentially big wins. Tractor Beam’s themes include animal husbandry, animal caricatures, cloning, supernatural, laser beam, electromagnetic spectrum, antigravity propulsion, electrostriction, alien abduction, spacefaring, and extraterrestrial life.
Space Arcade (September 2016) and Milky Ways (May 2020) are other Nolimit-owned games with a spatial theme. Examples of Tractor Beam’s rival slot games: Roswell Secrets (November 2017) from Capecod Gaming, UFO Farmer’s Trouble (May 2016) from Octavian Gaming, Need For Space (May 2019) from Spinmatic, and Cosmic Cash Cow (September 2018) from Games Warehouse.
The slot title “tractor beam” is borrowed from a scientific instrument that enables objects to attract each other. According to its product description, Tractor Beam is set in a Midwestern U.S. farm where the farm animals are levitating and experiencing alien abductions through laser beaming. Nine symbols (“wild” alien traffic sign, cow, pig, sheep, hen, A, K, Q, and J) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
