Joe Danger Infinity
Let's get dangerous! Fresh out the door from Hello Games, Joe Danger Infinity is a follow-up to the 2013 arcade game Joe Danger Touch. Holding the esteemed title of World's Most Determined Motorbike Stuntman, Joe finds himself shrunk down and racing through a series of tiny worlds packed with things to jump over, duck under, crash through and pick up. With a extra helping of collectibles to unlock, Joe Danger Infinity distills the formula presented by its predecessor into a still finer example of arcade racing bliss.
The basics of Joe Danger Infinity are as such: get to the finish line in one piece! Joe rides his stunt bike from left to right and you control leaps, ducks, double jumps and more by simply tapping on the screen. On your way to the goal you'll try to collect every single coin, hit every jump at just the right time, and rustle up some of the bonus items that are floating around. It's a very simple concept that Hello Games expands upon across 100 levels of fast action and tense moves.
Beyond the basic motivation of unlocking new levels to race through, Joe Danger also features a scoring system that encourages repeated playthroughs as you aim for a perfect run. This includes gathering gumball tokens to play a dangerously addictive micro-game diversion, picking up letters to spell DANGER, and nabbing coins that float in mid air or are fired from cannons. You have to watch the whole screen, not just Joe, which creates this wonderful tension between keeping your eye on the prizes and making it to the finish line without crashing. Your reward, though, could be a new vehicle or one of the game's many unlockable playable characters!
Joe Danger Infinity is wild amounts of fun, there's just no other way to put it. It's obviously a labor a love, and the utter joy the development team put into the experience oozes out of every animation and every stunt loop. We thought Joe Danger Touch could have been the best arcade racer on the mobile market. Now that Joe Danger Infinity is here, we're going to amend that statement so the new release can sit in the spotlight it deserves.
