Humans, the self proclaimed superior being, have once again triumphed with the invention of Warp Gates in space. Enabling instant and seamless travel over huge distances, they colonised many of the planets. Sheer genius, and all was going well until...

There was no warning, aliens just arrived, like rats running through the sewers, pouring from the gates they destroyed everything in their path.

In an awesome 3D environment of the alien world, you are a fearless commander dispatched to seek and destroy the source of the aliens.

Infestation is a non-linear mission-based action game. Take control of the latest upgradable vehicle; drive, hover and fly around the worlds. Use your immense firepower to blast the enemy scum. Employ your cunning to solve complex puzzles whilst maintaining a careful balance of weapons resources to remain one step ahead - as the aliens constantly mutate to protect themselves. This game has it all, action, strategy, resource management and futuristic vehicles

This is it, training is over it's time to save your planet!
