Space Invaders Infinity Gene Reviewed, in so Many Words


Between levels in Space Invaders Infinity Gene, the screen blanks and the word “EVOLUTION” is etched across the screen. Whenever this happens, I can’t help thinking that, beyond the connotations the word carries for the game (levels change and evolve as you play more), it’s also an apt description of the state of games on the platform—developers are figuring out what makes a great portable touchscreen game and, in this case, they’ve made an exhilarating, full-featured shooter that’s actually better than last year’s critical darling, Space Invaders Extreme.


About our scale… the number of words in our review reflects the score of the game. In practical terms, you could assume that games reviewed in 49 words or fewer should be avoided, games reviewed in 50-75 words would make a decent rental, and games reviewed in 76 words or more would make a solid purchase.
