10 word description: Fight against an almighty mothership that evolves to defeat you. (Mostly lifted verbatim from the app store description.)

10 word review: Dynamically evolving boss rush. Does that sound fun? It is.

You will like this if you enjoy: The end of level boss fights of space shoot-em-ups. The Roguelike concept blended with dual stick shooter action. Warning Forever, which is the inspiration for Infinity Danger.

The good news: Gameplay is based on constantly escalating action. Controls are pretty good. Graphics and effects – very pretty. Music and sounds, appropriately epic and of good quality.

The bad news: The pure joy of relentless boss fights could be construed as repetitive depending on your personal opinion.

Arcadelife verdict: I love the concept, even though it isn’t 100% original. But then, what is? The game looks good, plays smoothly and the evolving enemy ships are an endless source of escalating action and challenge. It’s a shame that there is no choice of player ship and also no upgrades to acquire. The gameplay doesn’t desperately need those enhancements, but they would certainly add a lot more depth and progression incentive.

Ultimately, there could have been much more to it, but Infinity Danger is different enough and so solidly playable that it deserves to be on any shoot-em-up fan’s iOS device.
