App of the week – Infinity Blade

Infinity Blade

Price: £3.49Platform: iOS

It’s hard to believe an iOS title can look this good, but Epic Games has wrung an incredible amount out of Apple’s range of gizmos. Infinity Blade is a true thing of beauty, with proper 3D graphics, shaders and all of that other stuff that has PC gamers foaming at the motherboard.Essentially a one-on-one fighting game with an RPG-style experience points/level up system attached, it has a novel structure: you can keep playing through until you beat the final boss, but each time you’re taking on the role of the son of the previous hero.
