Binarystar Infinity is a 1-bit shoot ’em up on Xbox!

What can you do with 1-bit visuals? Well, if you’re those behind Binarystar Infinity, quite a lot it seems. 

Available to purchase and download on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S right now is Binarystar Infinity. Strangely, this is the second game of the day to release on the Xbox Store via the Forever Entertainment and Storm Trident teams (following on from the completely different Baby Storm) to this time deliver a 1-bit shooter to the masses. 

Priced at £4.19, Binarystar Infinity is certainly cheap enough to warrant a look and some interest. And if you take in the trailer and screens shown on the Xbox Store as read, you’ll probably find something that belies that price point. 

Binarystar Infinity whisks us off to future years, stardate 2258.42 in fact, as you join the Binarystar Space force, looking to fight back against enemies from space. In fact, you’re in charge of this space force and so your calls will dictate whether humanity lives or dies. 

It plays out in the most simple of ways, as a 1-bit shoot ’em up, but it really does look very good, seemingly running smooth, offering up tons of shooting opportunities. It also brings handcrafted levels to the party, as well as bosses, a local co-op chance (with Friendly Fire on if you so desire) and more. 

Should you be down with the side-scrolling shmup scene and fancy taking in something that is a) cheap and b) different, then Binarystar Infinity should be on your wishlist. Grab it from the Xbox Store to play on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. 

Keep an eye out for a review from us if you wish to know more. 

Game Description:

Binarystar Infinity is a 1-Bit Shoot ‘Em Up with a challenging experience reminding of the traditional Arcade Shmup classics, that can be experienced alone or with a friend, and with the particularity of being playable in vertical or horizontal scrolling mode. Offering handcrafted levels and bosses with modern fast action gameplay and smooth feedback controls, packaged in a stylized nostalgic 1-Bit graphic look (popularized by games like Downwell and Minit) with juicy FX. The game offers a challenging single player mode with levels run to be mastered, or a more relaxing co-op experience if you choose to play with a friend (Nightmarish if you decide to activate the Friendly Fire co-op option :D).

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
