Much like Pac-Man Championship Edition, Space Invaders Infinity Gene takes its source material in a decidedly futuristic direction, but Infinity Gene makes some more drastic changes to the original Space Invaders formula than Pac-Man CE made to its predecessor. The further along that players make it into the game, the more modern the game becomes visually, so whereas the game starts out looking identical to the 1978 arcade edition, it eventually morphs into something similar to the 2001 Dreamcast cult classic Rez HD. Infinity Gene is a loving tribute to the gaming industry's first "killer app," (Space Invaders' original release on the Atari 2600 quadrupled the systems sales) and if vertical shooters are your thing you're likely to get a kick out of shooting for some top positions on the game's included global leaderboards.
