We’re always fascinated by the amazing diversity of iOS as a gaming platform. Something about the platform pushes developers to create new and completely original experiences, and this week’s selections highlight that theme pretty well, thanks to Infinity Blade II, World of Goo, and Run Roo Run -- a new release about a kangaroo on the loose. And while Hatchi's Tamagotchi-inspired approach isn't exactly original, it certainly is unexpected in 2012!
It’s a good week for iOS gaming software. Not only do we have the resurrected Xbox kinda-classic The Bard’s Tale to look forward to, but we also have word that the developer of Scribblenauts is working on a new game. But the really big news is that Infinity Blade 2 launched today. So let’s get to the updates so that we can all go slay the God King.
The gaming industry is about to come grinding to a cacophonous, all-encompassing halt for the next few days, but luckily we got all of the gaming news and announcements we need to hold us over until the holiday is over.
Over the course of the holidays, Chair's Infinity Blade came out and blew the iOS user base away by proving just how amazing a game could look on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. By the time you'd fought your way through the castle time and time again, gradually leveling up your character and gaining weapons, armor, and magic items that could slay almost any opponent, you wanted more. And as of Thursday, Chair responded, releasing a free, full-fledged expansion to the title in the form of Infinity Blade: Arena.
The iPad 2 hits today and with this, Epic Games’ ChAIR Entertainment has announced that its Infinity Blade adventure game has been updated today with new optimizations specifically for iPad 2. The changes, which are part of a 500+ megabyte update available via the iTunes App Store, take advantage of the improved processing power of iPad 2, allowing the title to look and play better than ever.
You can't go wrong with a good RPG-style medieval slasher like Infinity Blade and developer ChAIR is sweetening the deal. Starting Tuesday, the company will release its first free content update via the App Store on December 10.
ChAIR and Epic Games today announced Infinity Blade, the companies' action-RPG sword fighting adventure, will launch via the App Store on Thursday, December 9.
The game, which will be available for all of Apple's iOS-based devices, while retail for $5.99 and be powered by the Unreal Engine 3. In Infinity Blade, players will fight through sword battles and epic boss fights set in the realm of a fully 3D castle.
