The behemoths of the game industry ID Software and Epic Games to grace the Apple scene
When we're not writing news, reviews and comparisons, we like to pursue some leisure activities on our handsets - like shooting zombies or conquering medieval Europe. That's why it's our pleasure to announce that ID Software and Epic Games, two of the best game-producing companies when it comes to shooting evil creatures, are set to send some love to the mobile community with their games.

ID Software's product is called Mutant Bash TV, a ported version of Rage for Apple handsets and it's going to cost only $0.99 for the standard version and $1.99 for the Retina Display and the iPad variations. The story of the game is concerned with post-apocalyptic future (hello, Fallout) and, basically, you have to sort things out. It's important to note that the game is played on rails, similar to what we experienced with DooM: Resurrection, but we hope it won't take too much from the experience.

Probably even more anticipated is Epic Games' Infinity Blade, that's described by the game's creative director as "a mix of Karateka, Dragon's Lair and Punch-Out". We don't know about you, but looking at the trailer below, it just feels great.

It seems like Apple wants to enhance its gaming capabilities, since a good portion of the most popular apps are games. First, the company subscribed a patent targeting real-life based gaming and now they let big name manufacturers to create games for the iPhone. With the ever-increasing competition in the smartphone business, Apple is trying every way possible to distinguish itself from the other manufacturers.
