Hidden behind one of the corniest names we've ever seen (possibly intentionally so) Sword and Sorcery EP [iTunes Link] may just be one of the most unique games of the year. All it takes is one good look at the game and it's powerful tone to understand that this is about as far from Cut the Rope as you can possibly get. Today we'll get to put our grimy mitts on the full game.
In late February they released a trailer that got us primed up for the game's release. It showed very little gameplay and opted instead for a spooky Twilight Zone vibe with cryptic messages about the Spring equinox. All of which fits with its creepy aesthetic, funky visuals, and off-kilter gameplay. The game seems to be more about exploring the world they've created than about rescuing princesses and slaying great evils. A refreshing take, no doubt.
We feel genuinely sorry for any of the games that got approved by Apple and ended up releasing this week. We're not sure there could be a worse week to come out on the App Store. First, Angry Birds Rio was released yesterday, and now today we have Final Fantasy III [Tunes Link] and Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP. All three are highly anticipated releases, and together they cover the spectrum of practically every iOS gamer on the planet.
Perhaps tomorrow we'll have to devote a post to highlighting the poor souls who were no doubt swallowed up by the heavy hitters releasing in the past two days.
Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP is available now for $4.99 on iPad.
