- “Get ready to enter a world of anarchy! Will you use your powers for good or evil?”
- — Game tagline.
InFAMOUS Anarchy was a spin-off of the Infamous series developed for the social networking site Facebook. It was developed by Mob Science and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the web, and was subsequently released along with Infamous 2 in June 2011. Since then, it has been available for play. However, the game was eventually shut down.
Ever since the game's release, it has been updated with additional features on separate occasions. It allowed players to build their own personalized city, fight enemy players, help friends expand their city, create his custom avatar and more. By playing InFamous Anarchy, one could measure up with unknown criteria, which when reached, would grant the player a voucher code which could be used to unlock additional items for use in InFamous 2. Since June 2011, competitions have been introduced, as well as the feature to take images of the game.
The game relies on the player to build his own city, or "district". The player can customize his own Conduits appearance, skills and more . The game is very social, relying on the player inviting his friends to the game, making them his neighbors. There is also a wide amount of Locations in the game, whereas the player can finish jobs and gain experience, by rebuilding or maintaining buildings or defeat enemies.
The game heavily relies on Energy, which is regained over time, and is upgraded on level-ups. Nearly every action involving money, enemies or work will drain Energy. By visiting Zeke, the player can craft new items and clothing. The player may also fight other players in order to gain Karma. For example, By fighting players with Good Karma, one will collect bad Karma points. Likewise, should one battle players with bad Karma, one will collect Good Karma. The color of the player's Lightning powers is equal to the color of the location of the pin, on the Karmic Meter.
Experience and level
By gaining Experience points the player can level up. By leveling up new items may be purchased and crafted, and new Locations are unlocked. Level also affects what enemy players will show up on the "Fighting" menu. For example, a level 20 character may not battle a level 10 character.

By earning credits, the player can customize its own District of Amp City. The District can be customized with several Objects, Decors, Landscapes and more.
