Infinity Blade, the highly-anticpated fighting game first shown at Apple’s media event in September and previewed in the free app Epic Citadel, is now available in the App Store. The game is universal for compatibility with both the iPhone and iPad and costs $5.99. Our sister site TouchArcade has reviewed Infinity Blade, dubbing it as a “must have” game though it is not without its limitations.
In Infinity Blade, you play a medieval-style warrior avenging your predecessors against the God King, who wields the Infinity Blade sword that’s capable of absorbing the essence of those killed by it. You wield your own sword, parrying and slashing at foes and blocking and dodging their blows, earning experience along the way. Items in the game also have magical capabilities, allowing you to cast spells to help fight your enemies.
We’ve downloaded Infinity Blade to give it a spin and find the graphics to be impressive though it can be a bit tricky to master the timing needed to fight well. At $5.99, Infinity Blade is one of the more reasonably-priced and richly made universal games we’ve seen.
