Last week brought perhaps the largest step forward that mobile gaming has ever taken, thanks to the announcement of the incredibly powerful New iPad. The device has piqued the interest of iOS gamers and developers alike, and here are some of the biggest iOS gaming headlines to appear since the announcement.
Epic Games' Infinity Blade has been the standard for how great a game can look on the iPad since its first iteration in 2010. They'll continue raising the bar with Infinity Blade: Dungeons, which is set to drop later this year. The game aims to make the most of the iPad 3's Retina display and show off the true power of the device, and will feature a third-person, top-down view as players swing their way through dungeon after dungeon. The game is sure to capitalize off gamers' longing for another installment in the Diablo series, albeit viewed through the lens of the Infinity Blade aesthetic.
The team at Phosphor Games has decided that it wants to get Dark Meadow into many more hands, and to do so, it's wiping out the initial $5.99 price tag and replacing it with a free app full of in-app purchases. The update is due this week, but Phosphor hasn't forgotten about those who have already purchase the game; early adopters that have already paid for the game will receive an exclusive upgrade that has yet to be detailed. With luck, it'll be sizable enough to erase any hard feelings about paying for something that was eventually given away.
The original installment of Ravensword showed gamers what an action RPG could be on iOS. Now looking to build upon the success of its initial foray into mobile gaming, Crescent Moon Games has announced Ravensword 2 (via Touch Arcade). The game will offer a complete overhaul of the graphics, which look stunning in the initial shots; and the combat system also appears like it will get some tweaking, so taking on the monsters that roam the world will hopefully be that much more satisfying. Crescent Moon expects to bring the sequel to the public sometime this summer, so keep your eye on the App Store for this promising release.
