Infinity Blade, an elegiac masterpiece, is still one of the best-looking iPhone and iPad games. So-called system seller, everyone should have this iOS exclusive on their Home screen. If you were mesmerized by how gorgeously smooth Infinity Blade looks (and still shines to this date, courtesy of Unreal engine) but didn’t take the plunge due to its high price, don’t miss out on this rare discount and pick up Infinity Blade II for just 99 cents, way down from its normal asking price of seven bucks…
The game supports full iPhone 5 resolution, fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini and has to be seen to be believed. This sale ends on June 30, 2013.
You can download the 1.1GB universal binary from the App Store.
I’ve been playing it like crazy and multiple content updates have expanded the game universe with additional dungeons, items, arenas, baddies and such features as all-new iCloud support, HDMI output and the online ClashMob mode.
Last but not the least, Infinity Blade II is one of the rare titles which does in-app purchases right. You can play through the whole thing without spending a dime on upgrades and even if you do, packs of virtual gold coins are priced reasonably.
By the way, ardent fans will remember that publisher Epic Games dissapointed fans by announcing in February that a prequel called Infinity Blade: Dungeons had been scrapped because it shuttered Impossible Studios which was working on the game.
