Fruit Machine Simulator 2

Bring a fruit machine into your home! The differences between this and Fruit Machine Simulator are the added features to the program (if you can find them). This game gives you just about every feature found on today's top machines, plus some of the old favourites that keep you coming back for more.

The added attraction of this over a real machine is that you never get into trouble for spending all your cash! This looks exactly the same as the first Fruit Machine Simulator. I can't remember exactly what features that has on it so perhaps they've just added one or two. The big joke about the game is that there seems to be a delay between you pressing a key on the keyboard and the computer registering it. This makes it very difficult when it comes to the repeat function or gambling, whatever you press it goes on to the next icon!

Graphics are bright and cheerful but each screen looks too cluttered. You simply can't tell what the hell is going on half the time, it all happens so fast.

Fruit Machine Simulator 2 has nothing much more to offer than its predecessor: if you bought the first don't bother; if you didn't, then it may be worth a look in.
