Milkstone Studios bring another quality title to the Xbox Live Indie Games marketplace with Infinity Danger. Combining a twin-stick space shooter with the time trial mechanic and endless boss fights, this makes for an ever challenging experience.

I found myself replaying the game several times to find the quickest way to dispatch the boss ships in each stage. You are only granted so much additional time after a successful fight, so it is in your best interest to save as much time by finishing the fight as quickly as possible.

The bosses do get progressively more difficult with each new entry, but thanks to a little info-graphic before each stage, you know exactly what type of weapons and defenses the boss will possess.

This is another quality offering from Milkstone Studios at a super price-point of 80 MSP.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide.

Milkstone Studios have made some really nice quality games! How do you get into the indie marketplace now? I haven't been able to find it since the dash update...

I have this game I find it very fun to play, although extremely difficult to get a higher score to compete others position. Sometimes I play any quality indie games when I'm bored from earning achievements.

Pretty much any of Milkstone's games are worth the 80MSP they ask. Just today I've been playing Zombie Football Carnage, which I'm finding very addictive and great for a quick blast while I'm waiting for my friend to come online! :)

I'd also recommend taking a look at Inflamous, Little Racers and Avatar Panic. All truely great games.
