    Inhabit the bodies of humans that have one innate quality needed to get you to the next human or the end of the level. It's short, to the point, and fun.

    Infestor is built on a good, solid foundation. Hopefully we'll see future updates that add new levels, more puzzle variety, and maybe some additional challenges and/or surprises. Don't be afraid to give it a whirl right now, though. Infestor is one pile of biohazardous lime Jell-O who's worth knowing.

    Infestor is a fun little title that's just a short distance from being a must have for platforming fans.

    The level design is sharp for a nice challenge which perfectly embodies the retro nature of the game, and art style.

    Despite its clever "take-over" mechanics and signature graphics, the way-too-short level design, awkward button placement, and wonky achievements have caused this one to stumble out of the gates.

    The game definitely works as something that requires some thought, but nothing too strenuous.

    There's a lot to like about Infestor, and despite a few niggles it offers an engaging, novel platform experience.

    As a platformer it's not Ravenous' best, and as a puzzle game Infestor doesn't quite provide enough material for its parasitic premise to build on.

    As a result, Infestor's 60 levels are over rather quickly. The levels are smartly designed and still quite rewarding, but it feels like there is still a lot that Ravenous could do with the different abilities. If we're lucky a sequel will materialize before too long, because Infestor shows promise to be studio's best yet.
