Infinitode is a ‘infinite’ mobile tower defence game where you can build thousands of towers and unlock new levels with hundreds of upgrades. Tired of fighting off aliens, gnomes and zombies in tower defence games? Feel like such characters are mere constructs and you deserve something purer? Enter Infinitode, where the creatures you fight are not horrendous beasts but simple shapes which go about minding their business. Which is to destroy you and take everything you have.
Infinitode looks gorgeous, mostly because of the sleek design. The boards are intricate paths leading from the enemy station to yours and even your towers are composed of simple 2D shapes. This lets you focus on strategy and the game also has several settings for each weapon in order to fine tune it to what is required in its range. For instance, you can change the priority with which each weapon chooses its targets. Each level is fairly taxing and there are no levels that you can breeze through. This is not to say that the levels are difficult, but that they require you to actively play right from the first level. There is not much of a tutorial, so you’ll have to discover a few things on your own. However, these are mostly intuitive and make the game easy to get a hold of. If you’re still unsure, there is a handbook where you can learn more about the enemies and the towers. You can change the speed with which the enemies come at you depending on what you can handle.
Of special interest in Infinitode, is the ability to view the board according to different parameters. For example, in one setting you can view the number and type of upgrade for each weapon. You can freely switch views while playing the game and this helps you actually place the towers according to a predetermined strategy. One con would be that there are too many waves in each level and you might get impatient near the end. After all, once you have placed your towers and upgraded them, there is not much to do except watch your enemy shapes get destroyed. When you complete a level, you earn tiles like the ones you had played on. You can then use these to create your own levels using the level editor. In conclusion, this is one tower defense that you have to play.
