One of the biggest graphical showcases for mobile devices, the first Infinity Blade, is now free on iOS devices. According to the game's App Store description, it is free for the week to celebrate Thanksgiving. Despite there already being two sequels for the game, it is still worth checking the original out, especially because of its story.

The game was originally released in 2010 and instantly received critical acclaim. It was the first iOS game that ran on Unreal Engine 3, and was used to show off the graphical prowess of the iPhone 4. Back then, it was heralded by everyone, including Apple, as the poster child for iPhone's gaming capabilities.

"It's only a model!"

 

If you want a taste of something more current, you can check out Infinity Blade 3, which made its way to the App Store back in September. The game costs Rs 390, and according to developer Chair Entertainment, makes use of the new power in the iPhone 5s' 64-bit A7 chip and OpenGL ES 3.0.

As is usual for the series, Infinity Blade 3 is also powered by the Unreal Engine. The game will be the last one in the Infinity Blade trilogy, and Chair promises that it’ll be an emotional rollercoaster featuring honour, love, betrayal and redemption.

This time around, there are two playable characters—series protagonist Siris and stealthy female warrior-thief Isa—each with unique fighting styles and hundreds of collectable weapons and items. Another major new addition for the series is the Hideout, which will act as the “home base” where the characters will chill out as they recruit new allies and go further into the story.
