This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

You aren’t a turret tethered to the ground in Space Invaders: Infinity Gene. You control a ship that flies and you have to fly to dodge bouncing lines. There are big boss battles too like a giant battleship and the retro meets Rez style looks fantastic. Too bad Space Invaders: Infinity Gene is only in development for mobile phones only in Japan. An iPhone port would be great, but Space Invaders: Infinity Gene looks like the kind of game Taito could expand into an Xbox Live Arcade or DSiWare title too.
