Infinity Blade blows up big time
Mo' Money, Mo' money

Developers have flocked to the iOS and Android apps market with some addictive games that are raking in huge profits. Games like Angry Birds are massive hits on both iOS and Android devices (the former is a paid game, while the latter is a free, ad-driven game). The latest hit game application for the iPhone is from Epic and is called Infinity Blade.

Infinity Blade has now become the fastest grossing app for the iOS platform. Gamasutra reports that the game generated $1.6 million in the first four days it was available on the App Store.

The game sells for $5.99. As of right now, the game has 271,424 users.

Infinity Blade beat the record set by a cutesy game called Cut the Rope that sold over a million in the first ten days it was available.  Infinity Blade pushed Angry Birds Seasons HD and Angry Birds HD into the second and third sports on the top chart for paid apps on the iPad.

Infinity Blade is a 3rd person RPG game that has incredible graphics that many didn’t believe was actually possible with iPhone hardware. Critics have not only praised the graphics, but also the gameplay of the Infinity Blade. 

You can catch reviews of the game here and here.

Agreed.

this game is probably not the best in terms of gameplay


Having played this game, I have to disagree.

"The best" is terribly vague, and in a list based on the literal sense of the phrase, sure the game probably wouldn't be ranked #1. Its gameplay is very solid, and my expectations were low for this one based wholly on the graphics. Chair did a great job of making the most of the platform.

I sure as hell hope so!
