Infinity Blade is a defining game for the iPad. Released in December of 2010, it was the first RPG designed from the ground up for the iPad’s touchscreen, and it combined intuitive gesture controls and combat with impressive graphics. It was also the first mobile game to be powered by the Unreal 3 Engine, and at the time, it was like nothing we had ever seen before.
Though Infinity Blade is not a new game, it is still one of the best titles you can get for the iPad. Just a few days ago it was named Apple’s App of the Week, which means for the first time since its release, Infinity Blade is free to download. We thought this would be a great time to publish a review of the original game for those of you who never had the chance to play it, so read on to get the lowdown on one of the top iPad RPGs.
