Remember Epic Citadel? The awesome game app that really wasn’t a game. If you recall, Epic Citadel enjoyed a brief moment on several Top App lists several months ago when lots of curious folks downloaded this free demo of the Unreal 3 Engine for the Iphone/Ipad. It didn’t do anything in terms of gameplay except to let you wander around a medieval castle; but the graphics were stunning and controls were highly intuitive.

So here comes Infinity Blade which will debut on Thursday 9thDec at $5.99, promising game-changing visuals and *spoiler alert* a new way of sustaining re-playability by regenerating the player as ‘the son’ (like a multi-generational fruit-fly experiment with experience points) with all of your equipment intact if you, *and you will*, die before completing your quest. Official Trailer’s over here on Youtube.
The price tag is in a way justified if it’s as cool as promised and apparently it’s a universal app, or what I call: ‘D1P2’- download once, play it twice, on both your Ipad and Iphone.
