Summary

Infestor has a simple premise, You play as an Alien that can inhabit and take over control of any human. Being a human will give you a certain power or ability that you need in order to clear the level, as you progress these humans make or break your run and the levels get a lot more devious combining puzzles with a pinch of reflexes. Tutorial help is dolled out via signposts found in the earlier levels but to be honest it’s very straightforward that you can easily pick it up as you go. Infestor boasts over 50 levels to unlock and bar a few Bastard ones it’s smooth sailing. I liked how the game kept it simple but had just enough challenge or thought that it did have you e gagging some brainpower. I finished it rather quickly and it’s definitely a one-and-done game both from a gameplay point of view and also has a trophy hunter with the Platinum trophy mostly tied to level progression. Overall I found Infestor to be a simple bit of fun and one all Trophy hunters should seek out and anyone looking for a casual puzzle platformer.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
