  • Coming over from the mobile space, there's no mistaking the visual simplicity of Infestor. That said, taking into account its budget-friendly price, it gets the job done with reasonably-engaging puzzle platforming and isn't in great need of stellar visuals to do so. The premise is simple, you're a glob that's able to take control of human subjects. You'll move into place and then hop onto their head, allowing you to take control of their body for a brief time and make use of some specific skill they have like jumping higher, shooting, or other abilities. There's a little room for technique, like learning to leap off a ledge and then jump from your subject's head to extend your reach, but for the most part the solutions are very linear and have a tendency to get a bit repetitive even if they require some dexterity to pull off at times. Not bad for a temporary distraction, but don't walk into it expecting much.
