Description: The whole galaxy is being occupied by the outlanders’ mechas. Now it is time to drive your mecha to eliminate the invaders on the space stations and other planets. You can collect the spoils from the enemies to upgrade your mecha.
You can move your mecha freely, and you need to kill enough robots to challenge the boss. There are different types of weapons to deal with different enemies, for example, the super laser weapon is better to kill massive troops. You can gather all the enemies if you can, and activate the superweapon. Meanwhile, you should activate the defence system, but you also need to move to avoid the skills of the enemies, otherwise, you will be defeated. If you survive you will gain lots of killing points. But pay attention, if you choose the machine gun weapon, you can only deal with one enemy so don’t make too many pulls. But every weapon has its own advantages so you should try every type of weapons to pick the most suitable one for yourself.
Review: Interplanetary Hunter: Infinite War is a giant robot game often called mech combat. This is a game in which action is king and you will be shotting for your life here, but luckily you have a whole range of upgrades to both your robot and the weapons it has. Sadly this is also where things start to go wrong because all the text is in Chinese with no English translation meaning you have to kind of guess what they do unless you can read Chinese obviously. Even if you can get through that problem the game is boringly repetitive and you soon realise that you will be doing the same thing over and over with very little let-up. It looks good I suppose, but some of the game’s issues mean it is hard for me to recommend it at £8.29, but if you can get it on the cheap it might be worth a look. Just be prepared to learn some Chinese to get into it.
