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.

Obviously I'm not talking graphics such as those produced by a five year old child. But a great game doesn't need Crysis level graphics. Just because I'm saying a great game doesn't need Crysis or whatever level graphics does not mean I'm saying that we should be producing games with Atari 2600 level graphics here.

An example is Stickwars (currently free) on the iPhone has relatively "crappy" graphics. It's still a fun little game. Is Stickwars great? No. But for the price, and considering what you get, it's a great value.

As for RPG's, depending on the type, they can contain SNES era or older graphics and still be tons of fun. Heck, the original Zelda on the NES would still be a great game if ported to the iPhone or Android (yes I know about the emulators).
