Reviews

"Alex Vostrov has created the most fiendishly clever, creatively generous, and cinematically thrilling facing-down-the-alien-hordes real time strategy game this side of the original Starcraft! Who says a great RTS has to be a big budget studio endeavor?"
--Tom Chick, Quarter To Three

"Infested Planet is a game I’m excited to see evolve, as it has the potential to be a unique and engaging RTS unlike any I have played before."
--Nightmare Mode

"Infested Planet is already quite fun, and the current beta is being very actively expanded, refined and tuned. If you’re into strategy, this might well be worth keeping an eye on. After all, who knows what it could mutate into?" --DIY Gamer

"The mutations are an ingenious way to mix each game up and keep the experience fresh."
--WarGamer

About This Game

Command a team of 5 elite soldiers against an alien horde of 100,000. Surrounded on all sides, you must outmaneuver and outsmart the enemy.

The enemy is closing in around you. Your soldiers are being flanked and the perimeter is slowly collapsing under a vicious alien assault. Robotic turrets will not last much longer. Just a little more and the bugs will swarm into your unprotected base. What are your orders?

You order your soldiers to fall back to a defensive chokepoint and rebuild your defenses. Sacrifice the forward squads to gain some extra time. Gather your team while equipping them with flamethrowers and laser guns. Start building a siege cannon for fire support. Then, while the aliens are busy, flank their main hives to destroy and capture them.

You have just pulled off a tactical victory - but there's no time to rest.

The aliens are constantly mutating. One moment your shotguns are ripping through the horde, the next the aliens grow hard, bullet-proof armour. You must adapt as well. Equip your team with stealth suits, miniguns, grenade launchers - your commands will decide the battle's outcome.

Features

I've been playing games for 30 years now.

This is easily in my Top Five of games spanning those years. No question.

Extremely tactical (work up to the hardest battles with the most unforgiving mutations and you'll need tactics just to hold ground let alone advance...).

Zoom in close or out to the full battlefield.

Don't be afraid to experiment!!! Reach for those skills you've never tried. Mix and match different units and abilities, everything is potentially useful or even necessary to win.

True tactical genius.

Please buy so the dev (who is always floating around on the forums answering questions) can feed his family (cats or human) and hopefully keep making games.

P.S. My first review ever! After 30 years!

Regards

Slinky

I really should play this more often. Nothing quite like battling against swarms of alien bugs with increasingly murderous weaponry. The at times seemingly unstoppable swarms- depending on which mutations the enemy happens upon- provides very tense gameplay requiring quick decisive movements lest you be fought to a standstill and trust me, you want to be on the defensive for as little time as possible. Alien mutations will punish slow playstyles. This fine balance between hold and push has the momentum shifting constantly particularly at the higher levels/difficulties. The fast paced gameplay coupled with charming visuals means Infested Planet is a great strategy game for those looking for that quick adrenaline fix.

I am sure this is really an Atari 2600 game with SNES powered grafix.

It's absolutely brilliant in short or long bursts. You wont regret buying this.

Light RTS Heavy Starship Troopers.

Meaty campaign and with branching optional missions funding a tech upgrade system. Which you'll need to take on more advanced aliens and mutations (well over 20 random buffs) that make tactics vital. Difficulty curve is also handled extremely well.

After that it's on to skirmish and randomly generated and endlessly tweakable alien settings. You can even turn of mutations you find too OP (if you're a noob. that is).

Developer is still active in a 2 year long thread on the forum asking what he should add next. There's just no negatives here. Buy it.
