For a few seconds this game is the original Space Invaders; but as you play on the game evolves, taking you on a journey through the history of shoot ’em ups.
Enemies eventually cease lumbering about and start to attack en masse. Huge ships appear, flinging all manner of bullet-hell in your direction. When you reach a certain point, you can optionally flip your device and take on levels as R-Type-style side-scrollers too.
Although we’ll grumble slightly about the lazy iPhone 5 optimization (black borders in-game, but full-screen between levels), Infinity Gene looks beautiful. It’s very iOS 7, with its stripped-back iconic white spacecraft atop simple gradients. It also plays out to a thumping soundtrack, urging you to high-score greatness.
