(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a certain game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
Ok. This one somehow slipped by me back in the beginning of the year. It doesn’t happen much, but it happens. I’M ONLY HUMAN DAMNIT!
The game is called Infinity Warriors (by Sandbox) and it released on the App Store waaaaay back on January 19th of this year. Now, I haven’t really heard of Sandbox. They actually just released an endless runner called Unstoppable Rex that’s pretty good and they have four other games on the App Store that I’ve never played.
Anyway, back to Infinity Warriors.
Infinity Warriors is described as a “One-Touch RPG Arcade Adventure”. I guess I can’t really describe it too much better myself………..but of course, I’ll try.
Infinity Warriors is more of a hack & slasher to me. You play as a mighty undefeated swordsman and you are on a quest for immortality. To do that, you need to defeat the Demon King. But, we all know that it’s not going to be that easy. You are going to have to fight through hordes of different creatures across five separate realms.
The biggest draw (for some people at least) is the fighting. It is done with only a single tap per creature. So, basically, tap on the enemy and your swordsman will keep attacking until that enemy is dead. You will still be tapping quite often with all the baddies you will be up against, but the auto-attack helps from making it a complete button-masher. I honestly didn’t like the single-touch attacks at first, but it eventually grew on me the more that I played.
The game can really be a grind at times. You are technically playing the same five realms over and over. (Those who have played Infinity Blade will know what I’m talking about.) You play through all four realms (one is an endless realm) and eventually face off against the Demon King. He of course kicks your ass and you have to start over. Go through the realms again, get killed by the Demon King, go back to the beginning. Rinse and repeat. Each time you start over, the enemies change up. So, it’s not like playing the exact game over and over. Plus, you gain experience for every enemy defeated, level up, collect and upgrade gear, and so on.
Infinity Warriors was definitely a great find in my opinion. The visuals are beautiful at times and there is plenty of action that takes place. It may seem like a small game, but there’s actually quite a bit to do. Besides leveling up, there are also spells to learn, secrets to find, and of course full screen bosses to fight. If you can get past the grinding aspect, Infinity Warriors is a really fun “One-Touch RPG Arcade Adventure”.
