Reviews

“Strike Suit Infinity takes the best moments from Zero (the combat) and cranks it to eleven for an addicting and intense high score chasing shoot ‘em up.”
8.5/10 – Select Button

“An absolutely great way to marvel at space and its beauty while blowing the crap out of some big, hunking space ships for that ever-so-tasty high score.”
7.5/10 – Destructoid

“The bottom line, as you might expect, is that this is a visually rich combat simulator that brings a lot of arcade-style pleasure to the table.”

About This Game

Ok, cadet. This is it. All your training has brought you to this point - you are here for one reason only: to be the best.


Strike Suit Infinity is a frantic high score chaser where your skill is the only thing that matters. Whatever combat experience you have had so far is considered irrelevant. There is no end to the enemies you will face. There is no winning. There is only the fight for survival.


Take to the cockpit of one of three Strike Suits, engaging waves of enemies, building your multiplier and putting as many points on the board as possible. You’ll need to use your head, though. In between rounds, use credits to purchase upgrades and reinforcements, maximizing your potential in the next round. The longer you can stay alive, the bigger your score, and the higher up the leaderboard you’ll find yourself.


Engage intelligent enemy fighters and take on colossal capital ships, exploiting weak points in their super-structure to blow them apart piece by piece. Upgrade your Strike Suit and customize your weapon load-outs to tailor combat to your tastes. Take advantage of three very different Strike Suits to experience dogfighting action as you’ve never seen it before.

Key Features


  • Fast, frantic space combat: freely engage multiple enemies, dogfight other pilots and fight massive fleet battles.
  • The Strike Suit: strategically switch from Pursuit Mode (speed and power) to Strike Mode (a powerful, highly maneuverable combat mode).
  • It’s all about your score – build your multiplier, take down waves of enemy as fast as you can, and race to the top of the leaderboard.
  • Manage your strategy – use credits in between rounds to purchase upgrades and reinforcements for the next round.
  • Capital Ship Destruction: take capital ships apart piece by piece – take out their turrets and target weak-points to blow out entire sections of their superstructure.
  • Ship Designs from renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion).
  • Music from award-winning sound designer Paul Ruskay (Homeworld) including a collaboration with Japanese singer/songwriter Kokia (Tales of Innocence, Gunslinger Girl: II Teatrino) and Subsource.
  • Joystick compatible: as well as being fully optimized for mouse and keyboard, and gamepads, Strike Suit Infinity is compatible with a range of joysticks for full immersion.
  • Vicious new enemy types

Strike Suit Infinity is an arcadey space flight sim with no rebindable controles (you are basically required to use a controller or joystick) all the controls are inverted and can only be changed in the hard to find .xml file that is literally just a wall of text where you have to find "invert=true/false" and change it to what you want.

i can't get past the second part of the first stage because of all the awkward controls. did i mention the controls are crazy awkward and not rebindable! yes pressing X and B to juggle targets is great but it would make more sense if it was done on the D-pad and then use those buttons for extra weapons or something.

the game is bland for an arcade space shooter because it has no powerups and a very meh upgrade system. the game gives no sense of movement to the player. movement is not conveyed by anything other than the constantly moving enemy and friendly ships. the mech mode would be fun if the controls were not complete garbage! if you can actually manage to control the crazy thing its overpowered as ♥♥♥♥ (not a bad thing in the slightest imo) but otherwise its completely unusable due to the fact that in this mode all the controls reverse themselves and become way more sensitive (just bumping the stick seems to turn you 720 degrees >_<)

this game is trying to be a very precise bullet hell inspired space flight sim but with the awkward as hell controls it just doesn't work and you just end up dieing because you zigged when you were trying desperately to zag!

sometimes when starting this game up it will crash to desktop as soon as it launches due to runtime error. its not that big of an issue because it doesn't crash when actually in game and this doesn't happen too often (just often enough to mention it briefly).

with all the bad and ugly though this game has an amazing soundtrack. if i could just take the music out of the files i would feel i didn't waste money. its that good! more games need to have D&B and dubstep soundtracks like this game dose. when that music starts i instantly feel like a badass pilot (even though i'm usually not in control of my ship because of crap controls)

TL;DR

the bad
~no rebindable controls
~everything is inverted
~controls can only be fixed in a huge .xml hidden in the games directory
~controls reverse when in mech mode and mech mode is way to hard to controle

the good
~amazing soundtrack that makes you feel like a bad ♥♥♥ while completely failing at flying and shooting and everything

Arcade-like space shooter where you control fighter that can transform into robot. Unlike it's big brother, Strike Suit Zero, this one has no story and it's all about clearing levels and getting high score by killing waves of enemies. After each level there you get cash that can be used to buy additional reinforcements. Has a pretty strong flavor of Gundam.

Satisfying space dogfight sim with a slight arcade tinge to it. Above average enjoyment for an indie title. Felt a lot like the old freespace, but without much worry as to ship velocity. Has a very good controller feel to it.

English Review
It was enough for me to see a universe, spaceships and space fights and I didn't hesitate to buy this game by discount coupon.
Galactic combats and accomplishing of missions is my thing. I love games of this kind. Either on cell phone, personal computer or notebook.
I didn't actually know what it was going to be about, but I was excited.
Accomplishing of tasks consists of rounds, where round means a wave. After killing your enemies from the first wave, another ones will come. If you succeed in everything, you're promoted to another level. Meanwhile you can enhance your boat, gain points or score, or in fights – for your gained credit – you can fly in round with your introducing parade.
And not to forget – there is a chance of using weapons and chaning of boat to a „robot“, makes this game even more interesting and high-rated.
Let's kill the enemies!
Rating: 10/10

Slovak Review
Stačilo mi vidieť vesmír, vesmírne lode, a vesmírne boje a neváhal som si túto hru kúpiť cez zľavnený kupón.
Galaktické súboje a plenenie misii je moja parketa. Milujem hry takéhoto rázu. Či na mobile alebo aj na PC či NB.
Síce som nevedel o čo presne až tak pôjde, ale bol som už vopred nadšený.
Plnenie úloh sa skladá z kôl, kde kolo znamená vlna. Po vyzabíjaný nepriateľov z prvej vlny prídu ďalší. Ak uspeje vo všem, prešli ste a postupujete o lvl vyššie. Popri tom si môžte vylepšovať svoju bojovú loď, nahrávať body či skóre alebo v bitkách za nahraný credit si so sebou do kôl lietať s uvítacim sprievodom.
A aby som nezabudol ... Možnosť používania zbraní a menenia lode na ''robota'', robí touto hrou zaujímavšou a kvalitnejšou.
Vzhúru do kokpitu a zabíjať enemy.

Seriously some of the best space combat I've had in a while. Really makes me wish I had a joystick, but you get used to the mouse and keyboard controls pretty quickly. HUD is great and unobtrusive, flight is not outstanding but far from clunky, sound design is fantastic. Gigantic thumbs up for the great cockpit view. The game looks really beautiful, even on lowest graphics settings.

The only problems I have with the game are that capital ships have wayyyy too much health, and weapon/ship customisation isn't as varied as I'd prefer. Don't get me wrong, the weapons and ships in game do just fine. I just wish I could get some Armoured Core-style customisation going--that would REALLY take the game to the next level.

9/10 would definitely recommend if you like space and shooting stuff.

Amazing pure combat version of Strike Suit. In later levels fights quickly turn into fleet battles.
Worth buying for the crazy combat intensity. No story here, just combat and fighting more colonials than before :D

Wow, a jpop-style Descent clone! Kind of like Starfox! Except in SSI, there's only the sections of the game that make you rage, and there's no actual fun parts. Actually it's nothing like Starfox. I think I wasted my money here. Luckily, it wasn't a lot!

I rate this four wet diapers out of five,

I cannot understand all the positive reviews of this game. It has nothing to do with space combat.

While in the fighter mode, the shots do almost zero damage, you basically just collect energy to change to the mech and oneshot everything with built in auto aim. If you expect real space combat like seen in the old privateer series or something similar you are wrong. In strike suit infinity all you get is a massive overload of special effects flying left and right.

The game even lacks the very basics, for example: there is no radar, you can barely see what is going on, how many enemies there are, where there are etc. There are other major flaws in the controls, as even though you auto aim at locked targets you will miss everything that is not locked no matter where you shoot. This forces you to cycle through endless amounts of targets before you ever get to the one you want to shoot.

So in the end, this is not a space combat game.. the only fight that requires skill is the fight against the annoying controls.
