“Infinity Runner looks good, with decent graphics and a strong sci-fi visual style....the running itself is shockingly enjoyable...and surprises in how fun it can be.”
7/10 – Escapist Magazine - Jim Sterling

“The gameplay and soundtrack are both excellent and I’d love to try the game out using the Oculus Rift one day,”
8/10 – Universal Gaming Reviews

“The sleekness of Infinity Runner’s design is enough to carry the player through it’s fourteen levels. Nothing quite beats the thrill of pounding down a corridor, sliding and leaping past all manner of obstacles, and it’s hard not to grin when you pull it off.”
6/10 – Zero1Gaming

About the Game

The Infinity is the largest spaceship ever built by man-kind; flung into the void of space to secure humanity a new home amongst the stars. However, instead of discovering paradise, the inhabitants of The Infinity unlocked the door to a long forgotten nightmare.

Deep inside this leviathan something terrible hunts, out of myth and legend the last werewolf stalks the ship. Infinity Runner centres on a prisoner desperately trying to escape the decaying ship and the clutches of the terror within. It’s a sci-fi action running game for PC, Mac, and Linux that features 14 stunning levels, Oculus Rift support and multi-player.

In Infinity Runner, the player controls the protagonist, the prisoner, from a first-person perspective as he is challenged to escape from the gargantuan spaceship. This is accomplished by use of techniques and movements inspired by the disciplines of parkour and mixed martial arts, the game-play conveys the players strain and physical contact with the environment whilst dealing with the constantly changing and expansive surroundings. As well as these evasive elements there’s also combat sections in the game where a dynamic targeting system is used which calls for fast reflex combinations. The game supports the latest virtual reality technology as well as having multi-player mode which enables up to 32 people to play head to head.

Even though it’s a slick action game the story is very important part of your journey, as well as being your call to action it will reveal revelations along your action packed ride. Some of the story is told at high pace but there are some slower paced transition sections at the end of each level where we develop the narrative for the player. Without giving too much away you have someone guiding you through the game who talks to you telepathically. Their role is not only to orientate you but to help unfold the story for the player as you find out who you are and why you’re on the ship.

The Oculus Rift mode literally transports you inside the Infinity spaceship to be totally immersed in the thick of the action. The game-play is designed to complement the VR mode so you get the best experience possible and it enhances the game by adding another dimension to the playing experience.

There is also another feature that transforms the game into a unique experience, the multi-player mode. This allows up to a 32 players to battle it out head to head to find out who’s the ultimate Infinity Runner.

Infinity Runner packs a lot into one super slick sci-fi action game bundle and with it re-invents the running genre!

FEATURES
* WEREWOLVES IN SPACE!
* 14 ACTION PACKED LEVELS
* STUNNING GRAPHICS
* STORY-MODE
* OCULUS RIFT MODE
* MULTI-PLAYER MODE WITH UP TO 32 PLAYERS

STARSHIP INFINITY SPECIFICATION
Over 150 miles long and nearly 30 miles in diameter at its widest point, the progress of The Infinity's construction at the Tranquillity Ship yards on the Moon could clearly be seen from Earth. The revolutionary ship requires a crew of 5,000,000 people to keep it running and is designed to house another 10 million people as general population ready for the colonisation of new worlds. The Bio-domes, seen along the side of the ship, house forests that cover nearly 60,000 square miles in total, providing oxygen and a food source for the population and an environment for rest and relaxation. The greatest technological achievement can be found in the engine room, which houses the revolutionary Infinity Drive. It is vastly smaller than previous engines at a mere 10 miles long and far more powerful than traditional models which would take up to a third of the length of a starship, creating space for more brave colonists heading out into the unknown.

Infinity Runner could be passed off as a "Temple Run" clone on first impression, but once you get into the game you'll discover that Infinity Runner offers much more than just that. The game keeps throwing you into interesting set piece moments and new obstacles to keep you on your toes. The game is set in the first person perspective and that helps the player get a good sense of the game's speed.

The graphics aren't bad, but they do look dated, comparible to the end of the PS2 era. Though it may lack in high poly models, or high resolution textures, it does feature some nice particle effects, and though the graphics are dated, they do look good for what it is.

Overall Infinity Runner suprised me by how much I've actually enjoyed this game. It's streangely addictive, and the set peice moments of the game are quite exhilarating.

Pros:
- Addictive game play
- Set peice moments are exhilarating
- Story is suprisingly well fleshed out
- Lots of features to explore

Cons:
- Dated graphics
- QTE combat
- Might be too simple for some

+ Sense of speed
+ QTEs fit the game
+ Unlimited replay value with Infinity mode
+ Decent voice acting

+/- Had to use both my controller and mouse in order to get through the menus (even after reconfiguring)
+/- Setting isn't all that interesting, but not bad

- Too dark (even after adjusting the settings)
- QTE scenes sometimes take too long and slow down the experience
- Tutorial isn't fully worked out; some things are clearly explained while others are not
- Mediore graphics

Overall I really enjoyed Infinity Runner, however its definitely not one for someone looking for a relaxing experience! It’s really intense a challenge for more hardcore players. I also can highly recommend the Hard difficulty for the sadists among you.
Graphics wise it holds up, not that you notice much the speed your going! the Monorail section being a highlight in my opinion. The other Arcade modes gives some good replay value and I’m slowly making my way though the challenge mode which adds a visual level to your running skills.
I have only played one Multiplayer game but from what I tried it’s a variety of the story mode levels, randomly it reminded of Wipeout HD with the Speed and Power-ups.
I recommend Infinity Runner as something different to play, its intense but it seems to pack a lot of content and gives some good challenges.

Infinity Runner is a frenetic action game where you get to be a runner in a tunnel. That's the best way I found to describe it. In the menu you have that typical console message "press start" which concerns me. To be truly honest throughout the gameplay I always felt I was playing on a console or a mobile device. Infinity Runner has a simple concept, do the right thing at the right time and that's not enough for me. The "Stunning Graphics" are not stunning at all to say the least.

I tried to look out for the best in this game but it's truly difficult, the script is poor, the voice over bad and gameplay just... non-existent. It doesn't do any justice for the PC Gaming.

Pros
- if you like it straightforward, Infinity Runner is just that
- it's intense, it gets to a point where you have to focus a lot, it's challenging

Cons
- the graphics, maybe I wouldn't point this out but as it's listed "Stunning Graphics" I have to say, no, they're not
- pressing the right key at the right time while collecting what seems to be useless files, not enough for me
- it feels like a poorly done title, cheap, rushed for consoles, basically a port

Decided to pick this up after seeing Jim Sterling playing it, interesting premise and it was pretty cheap.
Infinity runner is basically all about running down a massive spaceship, occasionally you’ll turn into a werewolf. The game handles running on your behalf, so you just need to avoid obstacles and go around corners. This is a lot harder than it sounds. I think it interesting that some people compared this to Temple Run. Yes its somewhat similar, but this feels much more like an old school arcade game to me. The difficulty curve is pretty steep, your first few runs will probably end with you running into a wall. However once you’ve got to grips with the controls it becomes a lot more rewarding. Nailing a difficult section with the soundtrack pumping makes you feel like a boss.

The pace of the game is FAST, you really have to concentrate at all times. I don’t normally like QTE’s but here they break up the gameplay nicely and let you relax, albeit just for a few seconds.
Graphics are pretty good especially the parts where you transition outdoors. I’m able to play it on max settings on my laptop which is a nice surprise.

Haven’t had a chance to play multiplayer yet but it sounds interesting.
All in all this is a good game in a niche genre. There are a lot worse games on steam at this price.
