Infinity Blade – The must have iOS game for gamers. ChAIR Entertainment and Epic Games put out all the stops to show the true potential of gaming on the iOS platform by creating this brilliant title. Face the God King by fighting through his men first, and defeat him to avenge your father’s death. The process is infinite, whether you defeat the God King or not, ever-repeating the run through but maintaining your items and level. Intertwined with RPG elements, scan the area for gold, health potions and treasure chests. Defeat enemies for XP, gold and loot. You can also purchase additional armor, helms, weapons and rings, as well as increase your stats. Each item has various traits from magic spells to health leaching. Navigating your character is limited to tapping on a highlighted location, where the primary controls are focused in battle. Tap to the left or right to dodge, swipe towards the opponent’s weapon to parry an attack or hold the shield icon to block. Attack by swiping in various directions over the enemy and, when charged, tap the super attack or magic icons to unleash more damage. $5.99 in the app store, and worth every single penny. The next update will include more items, enemies and a new area to battle within.
