If we were compiling a list of the top smartphone games, the original Infinity Blade would undoubtedly be up there. In his review, Jon praised the “incredible” graphics, deep combat mechanics, and addictive leveling system.
Now Chair Entertainment has released the sequel, Infinity Blade II, and it looks – literally and figuratively – every bit as jaw-dropping as the original.
The sequel offers 40 new locations, alongside a host of new weapons and spells, and it’s fully optimised to take advantage of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2’s dual-core A5 chip. This might just be the game to distract me from Skyrim.
In terms of compatibility, you’ll need an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd or 4th gen) or iPad, with iOS 3.2 or later. However, Chair Entertainment recommends upgrading to iOS 5.
Expect a full Infinity Blade II review in due course, mes amis. If it gets anything less than 5/5, I’ll eat my socks.
