Reviews

“Parasite stays true to the non-linear style gameplay of its genre predecessors. You’ll have to be incredibly shrewd with your morph use.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“If you’ve ever felt sorry for the Body Snatchers or rooted for Xenomorph domination, Parasite may just have the right combination of sci-fi weirdness and charming gameplay for you.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“Parasite’s gameplay mechanics feature puzzle solving, from shooting switches afar to avoiding certain obstacles and falls.”
