iiRcade Inc., the ultimate connected arcade machine that allows gamers of all ages to play their favorite retro and modern games in arcade style at home, is pleased to announce that SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE, officially licensed by Taito, is coming to the iiRcade Platform.
SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE starts off looking much like the original SPACE INVADERS, but then evolves into an exciting new shoot ‘em up game experience.
The game also features a unique soundtrack that was composed by COSIO, with extra tracks by Soundwave that will utilize iiRcade’s 100W Dual Stereo Speakers. The music evolves over the course of the game through three stages, with the first stage using simple drums and bass then progressing into fuller and more modern style tracks throughout the game.
“It’s hard not to mention SPACE INVADERS when you’re talking about all-time arcade classics,” said Jong Shin, founder & CEO of iiRcade. “We’re very excited to add SPACE INVADERS INFINITY GENE to our iiRcade library. It plays really well on our system and the game music sounds amazing on our 100W speakers.”
