Is it possible to hate a game that you really enjoyed playing? Infinity Runner makes the case for that paradox. The production value is pretty awful, the difficulty level is ridiculously frustrating and it doesn’t add anything new to the genre, but I still enjoyed my time with the game.
Infinity Runner is an endless runner like the games you see on smartphones such as the mega-popular Temple Run. You’re constantly running forward, and the controls are limited to strafing side to side, jumping and sliding. There’s a few new ideas here, but otherwise it’s basically like a smartphone game on a console, with only slightly better graphics.
Werewolves in space. Yeah, that’s actually a thing.
Wales Interactive’s Infinity Runner is a first person endless runner featuring a prisoner that is desperately trying to escape the confines of a ship that is falling apart while avoiding dangerous traps that are inside. The character’s movements in-game are inspired by mixed martial arts and parkour. Somewhere along the line, the legend of a werewolf exists in confines of the ship.
Features of this game includes 14 action filled levels, a story and arcade mode, werewolves in space and a wolf leveling system.
Infinity Runner is planned to release for a low price of $6.99 and is coming to Xbox One on April 22. The game will be on the Xbox Live Marketplace in a few hours. This title’s concept may be difficult to describe in words so look below for the launch trailer of this first person sci-fi action game.
