For those of you who’ve played Epic’s amazing Infinity Blade (TMA Review), Penny Arcade sheds some light into the whole repetitive (yet highly addictive) bloodlines premise with its “The Perils Of Lineage” comic strip. Can’t exactly blame the guy for not exactly being thrilled with the idea of squaring off with the God King.[Penny Arcade via @InfinityBlade]
Wow, if you’re an RPG fan you’d better be thanking both the App Store approval folks and several developers for this week. The big guns were Infinity Blade and Dungeon Hunter 2, but in total this roundup is filled with 5 awesome looking RPGs. If that’s not really your style of game, however, there is a new Angry Birds like physics puzzler called Pirates Vs. Ninjas Vs. Zombies Vs. Pandas that looks pretty entertaining (and the name is fun too). Finally, if you’re looking for a “board” game on the go you might want to check out Jenga, the official electronic version of the popular tower toppling table top game. Try and say that one fast five times!
One of the unexpected tentpoles of Apple’s September 1st event was the demo of Epic’s new game running on the iPhone 4 in the full glory of the Unreal 3 engine. The graphics quality was such that many wondered if it was completely pre-rendered. As a response Epic released Epic Citadel, a tech demo of the capabilities of the engine that proved they were not fooling around. And roughly 3 months later – Infinity Blade – Epic’s first true entry onto the App Store arena has seen the light.
