Infinity Field [$1.99], a pretty standard Geometry Wars-ish dual-stick shooter, is coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Developer Forze Field Studios unveiled a new trailer teasing as much with a big fat Chillingo logo sitting in front of the glorious ensuing lo-fi, particle-laded action.

Details on the 'port' are still startling light. The video mentions a campaign and six game modes, and directly states that Retina Screen visuals will be part of the package, but that’s it -- no launch date, price, or possible additions were pinned down. We’re in the process of chasing down this information and will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Infinity Field first debuted on the iPad in January of this year. We dug the action, but were kinda turned away by how much it takes from Geometry Wars, an XBLA project from the now-shuttered UK developer Bizarre Creations. Infinity Field was recently updated to version 1.1.2 this June. The update reflected a name change to Infinity Field HD, which in hindsight makes this jump to the iPhone and iPod touch seem not very surprising. We'll check out this mini version of Infinity Field whenever it ends up dropping and let you know how it turned out.

    Seeing how there's still no trace of Geometry Wars in my country's AppStore, I guess these GW clones aren't all that bad. In fact Infinity Field is by far the best of them -- needles to say I bought Infinity Wars' basically paying 2 $ for a clone of a game that, at the same time, was priced at 1 $. :)) Activision's marketing department at it's best!

    Isn't Abstract Wars basically Infinity Field HD for iPhone? An AW update could match Infinity Field HD.

      Infinity Field iPhone is different than AW. In addition the AW code is completely out of phase, an update doesn't make sense.

    It looks really good, but it seems like all the explosions actually block out the action, and it would be easy to die in a big flare-up.

      I thought the same thing when I first picked up Geometry Wars on XBLA and true that is part of the game, but it's not as intrusive as you would think it is even less distracting in Infinity Field (at least the HD version on my iPad2).  We'll see what happens on the iPhone version on August 25th !!!
