About This 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 (DK1) 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
* ARCADE MODE
* STORY-MODE
* OCULUS RIFT MODE (DK1 & DK2)
* WOLF LEVELLING SYSTEM
* 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 seems unusual upon first hearing the pitch. It’s a game about a prisoner trapped inside a massive spaceship who is suddenly freed one day and seeks to make a run for it. However, this isn’t your everyday criminal — he’s also a werewolf. Yes, it’s patently ridiculous but also kind of cool. How does this runner stand up in comparison with the rest of the genre? In Infinity Runner, players are given a first-person perspective. Everything is seen from the eyes of the prisoner/werewolf sometimes including his naked arms and legs. Still, the basic mechanics of a platformer come into play. Timing is paramount to staying alive, as one wrong move will see you toasted by lasers, falling into the dark void of space, or worse.According to the plot, spaceship Infinity is the largest ever built. Yet there’s not a ton of variety amongst the seven different sections. Each section contains two levels within it and they regularly boil down to incredibly dark, tight hallways. They’re all interspersed with traps that will either sap bits of health or offer a one-hit kill. Every trap has a trick or two for successfully avoiding it. This might include jumping, sliding, running left or right, or combining actions to stay safe. Infinity Runner starts off by explaining how to handle new obstacles, but a couple are never explained which leads to a little trial and error.Mainly it is facing actual enemies that tweaks the formula. Stopping them revolves around Quick Time Events which seem semi-randomized. Thankfully, you’re given some breathing room in regards to how long you have to enter a combination. Get one thing wrong and you’ll be sent back to the checkpoint. A slight change to this formula comes when in werewolf mode as it is nearly indestructible. As a werewolf, enemies no longer pose a threat and are automatically taken care of. A handful of modes are included, although none particularly change up the formula. Story mode provides players with a narrative while running through levels while arcade mode challenges them to get the best score. Multiplayer mode is much the same, except that multiple people can play at once. None of them are actually seen, though, so it’s mostly asynchronous fights for leaderboard supremacy.Beyond the werewolf and first-person perspective concepts, there’s not too much that makes it stand out. Visuals are serviceable, but never get a chance to shine thanks to copious hallway scenes. One special feature is that Infinity Runner can be played with an Oculus Rift. I can’t speak of how the game runs from that perspective without owning the device.Infinity Runner has a fun, unique concept that isn’t utilized to the fullest. Dodging obstacles would be more rewarding if the difficulty ramped up alongside story mode. Instead, it reaches a certain level and stays there depending on the initial difficulty selected. There’s simply no urge to keep playing if skill isn’t being tested. The droll sci-fi storyline only goes so far and its runner mechanics have been done better before. Owning an Oculus Rift is the main reason to buy it, as the device is currently lacking in platformers. Still, there are likely better-than-average titles right around the corner.Overall 5/10.

While normally not anything like the usual type of game that I would play, the idea of werewolves in space was just too fun a concept for me to pass up. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was fun to play. Its kinda entertaining to just go through in Arcade mode and see how long it takes me to faceplant into a wall by failing to make a turn in time (or, more embarassingly, turning the wrong way), while trying to keep myself from accidentally jumping face-first into the obstacles I'm supposed to be sliding under.

The Quick Time Events, which normally annoy the hell out of me, didn't do that in this game, well, except for that one fight at the end. Though, really, I think the game would have been better with more werewolf in it.

Incredible game that takes advantage of the Oculus Rift! Really enjoyed it and despite what some people have said, I didn't feel sick at all. Though there isn't always someone online to match up with I did enjoy inviting my friends to the multiplayer mode as well. Nice job!

4 out of 5 stars.
I don't own an occulus rift, so I can't rate it on that experience. I can however rate it on its gameplay.

I find Infinity runner is a game best entered with few expectations. It promises pretty much what you think it does. Its a first person action running simulator.
That said, its an on rails obstical course with an interesting twist. The werewolves in space theme allows you to turn into a hulking werewolf mid-run, and change many of the rules in your favor, as it should. The combat in the game (yes, it has combat) is in the form of QTEs depending on the position and number of enemies in a room. If you succeed the challenge, you are rewarded with a smash and kill style fight as your avatar kills everyone in the room and continues to run at break neck speeds.
Yes, you are running at break neck speeds as any failure to react correctly to the environment as it explodes around you is an instant death. Thankfully you as a player are barely penalised, as you are almost immediately put back into sonic speeds at revival.
I rate this game highly because I believe it accomplised its goal almost entirely. I found myself glued to the screen, not trying to contemplate what was going on in the world, but instead reacting to my immediate environment. Each level brings its own style of obsticals, from literally jumping through space to sliding under gunships as they lay fire down on my naked body.

I wouldn't play this game for the lore, but why would you? This is a game meant to be played for about 20 minutes at a time, and is very satisfying as that. RUN!

Oh boy...This game..

Well, its a game where you automatically run down corridors occasionally turning left or right and dodging everything possible. you go through "Sections" which take about 3 minutes or so to complete at a time. Took me 90 minutes to complete this game which amazed me. The game is VERY short. but it was pretty fun time I must say

Though...The Final Part of the game is CHEAP. There is no Combat in this game it is all QTE's (Quick Time Events) and the final area is only that. and this game is very picky. so if you hit one wrong key BOOM..Restart. and you try again, but of course losing all your lives will force a restart on the entire final stage again just to retry that frustrating final encounter.

So overall I liked the game, but that final area really got to me after retrying the level a few times to actually pass it. for the sale price I got it for ($2.99) its really not bad.

I grabbed this game in the sale and thoroughly enjoyed what I've played so far. It took me a while to get used to the controls as you have to be FAST in this game. I thought the fact you could turninto the werewolf was great, which totally changes the game.

I would advise people to try this on the hardest difficulty for more of a challenge. Generally a cool game 8/10.

I enjoyed the fast paced parkour style of gameplay that it offered and the well done voice acting. Not to mention the out of the ordinary concept of werewolves in space. I also enjoyed that there was plenty of obstacles to overcome by various methods such as sliding, quick time fighting sequences, jumping, and ziplining in human form and climbing on walls, crushing enemies with ease, and even breaking through walls in werewolf form. However, I noticed some things that I just could not brush off. For instance, after you have completed the first two sectors, your female friend in the game no longer follows along with the words that are being spoken by the voice actress. Its like she has mind of her own and it is telling her not to open her mouth. Also, there's not alot of ways to take down an oppenent. I don't expect the werewolf form to have many ways to take down an enemy (due to the fact a werewolf is a raging beast) but, I do wish the human form had more fighting styles since your main character was trained to be a deadly living weapon. The story is okay. Not the best story ever told but it does fill in the gaps (most of them anyway). The final issue I have with this game, and is also the biggest issue, is the controller support. I see most games give you more options in order to change the button layout to your own comfort level and they don't mix and match buttons in order to keep throwing you off, but that is all you ever see when you play Infinity Runner. For instance, you are given three configuration choices depending on your controller and what you feel most comfortable with: one for ps3, one for xbox, and one that is custom. The issue starts when you are in a fighting sequence against the guard when it tells you to press the press the A button, it actually means that you have to press the RB button. What!? The layout for the buttons is scattered all over thet place! When you press X, it actually means Y. When you press LT, it actually mean the start button. This was so unbearable that I had to stick with the playstation configuration becuase most of the buttons were in the right order. The only two buttons that switched places was R2 and R1, as well as L2 and L1. This was the most frustrating part of the entire game. Overall, my final verdict for this game is a 7/10. Infinity Runner is a over the top, sci-fi based, parkour simulator that has fast paced gameplay that will leave gamers wanting more of the adrenaline rush. But, there are also a ton of other issues that need to fixed right away. Otherwise this franchise will NOT reach it's full potential.

Fun game with what I think is a pretty intriguing story-line! You wake up on a ship *naked* and are running away from something that is hunting you... but there is a great twist that mixes up the game. Why are you on the ship? Why and how is there a woman talking to you and helping you escape?

I recommend this game to anyone who just wants to have some quick action fun! I don't have an Oculus Rift, though I can imagine it would be CRAZY :D

It's okay, the charm kind of it kind of wears out fast. It's exactly what it looks like, a running game similar to temple run. The story wasn't anything special. I didn't particularly like the female's voice acting. Also I just had to turn off the music, couldn't take it anymore lol.

But it's different and kept me entertained long enough.

It has multiplayer, so you can play with up to 32 people. So that's a bonus. If you like these type of games, I suppose it's a solid enough title. 6/10

I find this game good!, and once you grow used to the controls it can be very fast paced and exciting almost.
the werewolf is very well done and interesting the last fight i had to go through was the most panic inducing key pressing ever, having to go through trial and error.
but while I do enjoy this game greatly i do have a problem with it, one mainly being on the level where you are in the garden/forest dome. the quick time events with the guards glitched badly! always killing me instently insted of the keys even popping up giving me a chance to dodge them. so the only way i was able to "fix" this was rabidly pressing pause giving me a chance to see the keys and press them, finally getting past the level.
but i say if you like werewolves. and playing as a naked character turning into the unstopable monster, this is the game for you lol

I really wanted to enjoy this game. It has huge potential but fails in almost every basic aspect of the gameplay. The core mechanics is simply a fast reaction game. You see an obstacle - you need to press a specific button. If you fails, you run from the checkpoint. 4 fails and you need to restart the whole level. Simple as that. The problem is, the obstacles are pretty much never recognizable. Eventually every time I saw a new obstacle I needed to die few times just to learn how to dodge it. After I knew it, it never was a challange anymore. This is another problem: when you go out of lives on a new hurdle, you need to replay the whole section which is a sea of boredom now, when you know handle it.
But, with all the things above, it would be a moderatly fine game, the controls are well responsive, the visuals create a really tense atmosphere, I had moments of enjoyment.
The real killers are QTE scenes. I tell you, it's the worst implemented QTE I ever saw in a game. And I saw quite a lot of bad QTEs. Let's give an example: in the middle of the run you see something on the left. If you think that it's obstacle and press right - well your bad, the key was right mouse button - restart! Eventually on the second try you wait with clicking anything, and, eventually, you see the right mouse button sprite. Awesome, you click it. Now you have a second to press next button - "A" is displayed. Wait, "A"? It will be backward, no!... Too late, restart! Not to mention, the whole UI for it is terribly unreadable, you have a second to press a button, yet you need some time to find the new button on the screen and then to process, if "D" means left, or maybe right... (I know it may sounds silly but believe me, in a span of the second, it's really hard to process those things, and it's super annoying since it's the mere core of the gameplay)
To write anything about other aspects of the game: The story is not engaging, not at all, it lacks any strong characters or plot, sounds are very annoying, however I really like the music and the mood overall. Sadly, due to those great flaws mentioned, I really can't honestly recommend this title.

This game will make you feel like you've run a million miles without getting up from the comfort of your computer. I've never really been attracted to the whole 'runner' style of game as it seems repetitive and dull but Infinity Runner smashes those clichés and really grabs you right from the off.

Your main objective is to run down a spaceship in an attempt to escape. Sounds simple but man is it frustrating. The game slowly introduces new aspects and mechanics, which keep it fresh and enjoyable, QTE sequences, that you will be praying for more of and then it throws in a werewolf for good measure. A werewolf in space! Why wouldn’t you be interested?

The games aesthetics are really beautiful and the quality of the animations and voice acting are remarkable. The soundtrack is fantastic, especially when you’re running at that speed, and so making a massive jump or avoiding deadly lasers really makes you feel like a boss.

A really enjoyable game for a good price and I will definitely be recommending it. I can’t wait to check out what Wales Interactive have got planned next.

Positive

+ Infinity Runner’s gameplay manages to capture the same gameplay as games like Temple Run, and adds a couple other elements such as quick time events to make the game fairly challenging at times, by making you rely solely on your reflexes to complete the game.


Negative

- The voice acting here is very amateur (I’m assuming it’s the same voice actress as Master Reboot , combined with that annoying echoing at the beginning of sentences still present here), as well as the dialogue. The music also is probably some of the worst music I’ve listened to in a video game in a long time; bland and forgettable techno music
- Unfortunately the graphics also are subpar at best. The textures on the environments are low quality and muddy, and the 3D models are also pretty poor; topped off with the repeated sections of the corridors you run through simply being uninteresting as well leaves much to be desired in the graphical department
- Even at its short length (1 ½ hours on Normal difficulty), the game still does manage to be pretty repetitive. You will see the same gameplay sections (with the exact same QTEs as well) many times throughout the game; having a bigger variety in the sections or more levels would’ve been welcome.


Verdict

“While the game is very short and has little to no story, the focus on gameplay makes the game--at the very least--fun. I bought this game for about £2 and I feel I got my money’s worth, but I don’t really think it’s worth much more than that. Considering how few infinite runner-style games there are on the market at the moment, this one is at least acceptable in terms of quality and enjoyment.”

6/10 TJBs

I'm really quite fond of this.

There aren't many games like this on the PC and it's not 'with good reason' really, either. I could understand disdain for this if it were endless, or if there were exploitative microtransactions. This game has neither. It has a level structure, and it even has difficulty settings which affect the game in very interesting ways. Also: It's a bloody werewolf on a spaceship, you miserable old sadsack. What more could you ask for?

To throw some more details into this ball of words than that -- it's similar to endless runners on the tablets, except not at all. The level structure and controls (which feel rad) make it feel very different, it's more 'inspired by.' So the end result is a game that has more in common with SkyRoads and '90s PC shareware games than it does Temple Runner. That's not a bad thing, since Temple Runner and its ilk are 'pay to keep going' games. This is a 'be good enough to keep going' game. And if you're simply awful at it, well there's an easy mode for you, too (as I mentioned!).

I don't know what there is to dislike about this, really. It's aesthetically pretty, it's fun to kill a few minutes with (when you don't have much time to spare), and it's priced accordingly. I can't understand why you'd hate this other than perhaps a.) you're young and your money is limited so you want your games to last longer and thus you're very invested in the fallacy of quantity -> quality (you'll learn), or b.) you're xenophobic and you hate Welsh people and werewolves?? Bizarre.
