Once upon a time, it looked like Apple would finish off Nintendo as the leader in mobile gaming and proceed to take on the big boys on the big screen. The App Store was booming and games were the biggest hits you could find. The easy availability and cheaper prices meant that players could stock up and play all kinds of different titles. Sales of the Nintendo 3DS sagged, which spelled real trouble for Nintendo. Apple could also provide what the competition couldn’t- a quality portable gaming experience on a bigger screen thanks to the iPad. It looked like things were really coming together.
Infinity Blade – one of the flagship game titles for iPad and iOS – has been updated today, to Version 1.3. The award-winning and popular game has also had a very nice 50% price drop, to just $2.99, to coincide with the new version release.
The update adds a new content pack, multiplayer online support via Game Center, and more. Here’s the full list of changes for Version 1.3:

If you’ve had a chance to try out the new version, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
Infinity Blade – one of the most highly anticipated games to ever come to the iOS platform – has been released in the App Store. The new Epic Games title is powered by their ‘unreal engine’ and is said to offer perhaps the best graphics ever seen in any iOS game.
Epic has released it as a universal app that is designed for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. It’s also priced quite well for a premium game, at just $5.99.
I wish I was a decent enough gamer to give this one a fair run, but I think I may pass on it. If any of you have given it a try, please share your thoughts on it in the comments. Is is as good as it’s cracked up to be?
You can find Infinity Blade in the App Store now.
