Even though it's now three years old, if you're looking for a great game to play on your iPhone or iPad then the original Infinity Blade title is still well worth a look. Better still, the game is now free to download for a limited time in honor of Black Friday week.
Infinity Blade: Dungeons was supposed to be a showpiece for the iPad, initially announced way back at the iPad 3 launch event, and now it seems we shall never get to play it. The title was put on hold indefinitely when developer Impossible Studios closed down, but the publisher Epic Games has now confirmed the project is cancelled.
Avengers Initiative is Infinity Blade starring the Incredible Hulk. At least right now. Marvel, their parent company Disney, and developer Wideload promise more Avengers will be assembling to join the fray in future updates, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, and the Black Widow. If that sounds a lot like the cast of this summer's blockbuster Avengers movie directed by Joss Whedon, that's probably not a coincidence. This is meant to be mainstream superhero game, but it hides a ton of comic geek love inside as well.
In a recent interview Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney talked a lot about the freemium model, convergence, and in particular how successful they've been in mobile. "The most profitable game we've ever made, in terms of man years invested versus revenue, is actually Infinity Blade. It's more profitable than Gears of War."
