3D levels were removed entirely. Unlike the PS3/Xbox360 version of this game, the Android version does not shift from 2D to 3D graphics after the level 3 stages. In fact, Levels 4 and beyond are simply not included in the game, and are instead replaced by bonus 2D stages. This is a fun, stylish game, but the Android version is simply too short compared to the console versions and cuts out one of the coolest thing about the game, the transition from 2D to 3D. I would not have purchased this game on Android had I known in advance.
NO OFFLINE PLAYING ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?! I loved this game until I tried to play on the train, commuting to and from work. There are large areas where I don't network connectivity. I already purchased this on the Play store. Why in the World would you require me to have network connectivity to play?!? This whole "not licensed" popup is garbage!!! Either correct the issue or I want my money back!
Evoluting the Nostalgia Brings me to nostalgia, while adding fun with its evolution! However, it seems that there is a miscoding in the app which makes some users feel that there is no sound. There is, and you have to increase the Ringer volume, not the Media (while the volume button is locked to Media in the game). Quite surprised that TAITO could make this kind of mistake ;)
It's a great game don't get me wrong, but it neither runs at 60FPS, has the levels after world 3 or let you make levels from your music like the iOS and PS3/360 version which is kinda disappointing. Be warned that there's an always online requirement, which FWIW is honestly kinda annoying and unnecessary in a single player game. If Taito patched that stuff in and got rid of the always online requirement I'd instantly bump this up to a 5/5 but as it stands the DRM stuff is too troubling to me.
No Space Invaders gameplay While i can see a lot of effort was put into this game by the developers, if you are interested in true Space Invaders or Space Invaders Extreme type gameplay you will probably be disappointed like i was. I wish that Tatio would make an android version of Space Invaders Extreme. Unfortunatley, Infinity Gene costs five bucks and aside from the familiar space invaders alien graphics, it's a boring shooter. UPDATE: I keep getting errors saying "not licensed" Please refund my 4.99 as i cant even play the game!
NO SOUND I was seriously looking forward ro this game as I've played the Playstation version and it was fantastic but then after paying money and downloading it I find that there's no sound at all when I go to play??? It was a pretty quick joy kill there.
Once upon a time, the Space Invaders was the rage and I tried to reproduce including opening and demonstration play.
