When it comes to minimalist simplicity, it’s either do it or do not. Infinity Rocket manages to give a no-tutorial-needed warp right into the frenzy of danmakus*, providing a quick fix of challenge in a familiar, friendly space theme. Don’t be tricked by the cartoony rockets that you control: this game is hard as nails.
All is in the right place in this straightforward project by ChameleonWare, and that’s a sign of potential. If all starts with tight, precise controls and the idea is to bring the player to the experience ASAP, then Infinity Rocket had a good start.
Available for the iOS here.
*Translator’s note: Danmaku means bullet hell.
