Description: Audio Infection or AI for short, is a casual 360° shooting game with VR support. Got tired after a rough day of work or feeling stressed out due to college? Jump in the game for some tracks to relieve stress and have a blast. You won’t have to worry about ammo or lives. We don’t like them either, so you are essentially immortal with an unlimited amount of ammo. Best yet, there is no reloading! The player has to fight against various enemies. Their density and the dynamic environment is based on the rhythm of the music that you are listening to. Based on your performance the enemies will become more aggressive as well, but don’t worry, they will become less dangerous if things get too tough for you. Per track you will be awarded with funds and experience, which can be used to unlock various goods. If simply a score and funds won’t cut it for you then you have the “mastery” statistic to keep track of. This indicates how well you performed in the game. Each hit taken will decrease it. Can you keep your personal high score while maintaining a high mastery? Don’t forget the epic weapons while you’re at it!
Review: Audio Infection is a turret shooter in which you need to take down waves to robots and drones in time with the music. Sadly those two things don’t seem to be linked in any way as the shooting and timing of the enemies don’t match the beat at all. But the good news is, this is still a fun little shooter, even if the rhythm section is a fail. While basic in graphics the action is quite relentless at times and can feel quite exciting to play. For £0.79 this is worth a look, but it isn’t quite the game the spill suggests it is.
