Infestor Walkthrough

Infestor is a platforming game with elements of the puzzle game and adventure game genres. This adventure game features sprite graphics, 8-bit audio, and forty challenging levels.

Infestor puts you in the role of a biological weapon known as "The Infestor". Your objective in this adventure game is to complete each level by making it to the pipe at the end. In order to do this, you will have to avoid traps and hazards while infesting humans to use their abilities. You have infinite lives in Infestor, but if you die in a level of this platforming game, you will be taken to the start. If you wish to manually restart a level, you may do so by pressing the R key. In order to pass to the next level, you will have to be in blob form, so be sure to release yourself if you are currently infecting a human once you've reached the end of a level.

In order to master Infestor, you will have to infect the right human for the job. Colonists (humans wearing white jumpsuits) run fast and jump high. It is useful to infect a colonist if you need to reach a high ledge or jump over a bed of spikes. Workers (humans wearing orange suits) are used to push boxes. As you progress through this adventure game, other types of humans will also appear. Be sure to read signs (by simply standing in front of them) because they will tell you what the different types of humans can do as they are introduced, as well as provide other tips to help you in this puzzle game!

Another tip for reaching high ledges when colonists aren't available (or don't jump high enough to reach a towering surface) is to break out of your human while in midair. If you press the C key to free yourself while at the top of a jump, your Infestor will be launched higher into the air. Be careful when using this technique, however, because releasing yourself from a human in this adventure game kills them, so you will have to restart the level if you needed to use the human again.

A final tip is remember that humans are only tools in Infestor. If you run into a hazard while infesting a human, the human will die and your blob will be launched from them. Just be careful because sometimes you'll need a human's skill later in a level, so you will have to restart if there are no other humans of that type available.

Infestor is a unique and challenging adventure game that masterfully blends the platforming game and puzzle game genres. If you need to take a break from Infestor, your progress is automatically saved, so you may continue from where you left off at a later time. Eliminate humanity's presence from the planet in Infestor!
