Infect Them All: Vampires is fun game in which, as the title implies, you are a vampire who — you guessed it! — must infect all the healthy humans on your level. It is similar Boxhead – The Rooms, with the caveat that you gain team members as you go along.
You can control your character by tilting or with a joystick. A joystick allows more precision for those in a car or moving vehicle, while tilting allows free thumbs for more fluid game play. Fortunately, settings can be changed at any point in the campaign. Tilt calibration can be automatic or calibrated.
Game play may be complex for some players, but the tutorial is very explanatory. Levels advance progressively, with each level using new powers and having more enemies. Many users will feel comfortable with the level structure, as it is similar to many multi-level flash games.
As players infect more enemies, they can unlock up to three vampires with different skills, battle over 30 types of enemies, and play bosses at the end of every level. After infecting 5000 enemies, you can unlock ‘survival mode,’ in which you fight off wave after long for as long as you can. After infecting 8000 enemies, you can unlock ‘blitz mode,’ which consists of 90 intense seconds of fighting.
Graphics are crisp and clear on a 4th generation iPod touch, and the game rarely lags. All versions of Infect Them All are fully compatible with GameCenter and OpenFeint, and scores can be tweeted or shared on Facebook. Mutlitasking is also fully functional.
The game overall has relaxed game play, different controls for everyone, and stays true to original Infect them all. The different gameplay modes must be unlocked and cannot be purchased, which I found annoying. Also there isn’t much difference from the prequel and the sequel.
