Infinity Blade multiplayer test (video)

Infinity Blade multiplayer test (video)
One of the hottest games on the Apple App Store – Infinity Blade, got even hotter after its update to version 1.3. The most significant feature of the update is the ability to play online with people from all over the world and see who the best sword wielder of all time is.

We cannot deny that we got hooked up on Infinity Blade ever since we tried it for the first time, and now that the game has online multiplayer, it looks like we are not getting off anytime soon. You connect with other players through the game's multiplayer menu, where the game server can put you up against a random opponent of your skill level, or if you wish, a friend can be invited to join through Game Center. One of the players fights as a titan and the other as a knight, while the characters and their equipment can be upgraded between rounds. Each battle lasts until one of the player wins four rounds, after which the players switch sides and everything starts all over again.

Check out our video demonstration of Infinity Blade's multiplayer feature below, and if you feel like you should give it a try, let us remind you that the game is 50% off for a limited time – $2.99 only. Happy hacking and slashing!

Haha don't you wish. Too bad unreal engine 3 hasn't been ported to android. Then again, android would have to be able to handle it. Maybe in future updates.

actually it has, Dungeon Defenders is Unreal Engine powered. Its just that the company behind this game are Apple fanboys, thus why no Android version.

You are absolutely right. I forgot about dungeon defender. However that is barely a shining example of what the engine can do. It barely uses it for lighting effects and some rendering. It still doesn't push it to infinity blades level of presentation. Also its a port of an IOS game(I know it was released on consoles too) as all good Android games are. Well most. Good Android games are either ports of IOS games or board games/parlor games like words with friends. There are a couple exclusive Android games that are good but don't reach IOS quality unless they are emulated ports of console games. But then again I am talking originals here.

clevername, It's dumbass people like you with your childish "mine is better than yours" attitude that's gotten this Android vs iOS rivalry going.

I'm just stating facts man. I don't even use an iPhone anymore. I have a nexus 1 for work and focus for play. I'm well versed and experienced in all the major os's except honeycomb, bb6+, and Symbian. From EXPERIENCE the iphone rocks with games. Android comes second, mostly from the sheer number of options-which as I've stated are mostly ios ports. Windows phone 7 comes right behind Android only because of number. Exclusive wp7 Xbox live games have a higher quality than Android games and non exclusive Xbox live games have an edge by bringing achievements. Not just achievements like on IOS or Android but ones that add to my actual Xbox live account. Once the numbers get up there, if the devs follow or start porting IOS apps to it with Microsoft new software then wp7 will be gaming king...of it can create enough steam and catch up. The other os's just don't compare. So no bud I'm not just a "dumbass" fanboy with "I can do anything..." syndrome. I'm a well versed gamer that has an educated and informed opinion and happens to believe that IOS tops the list. That is what a comment section is for. OPINION. So stop trolling with hostility and add something to thread thats worthwhile or shut the fuck up.

I f@%king LOVE this game. Even though I don't use an iphone anymore I still pick up my old iPhone with a cracked screen just to play this.

I'm so confused. Why do people play stuff like this on their phone? You can't see anything your fingers all over the screen :/

I play it on my iPod Touch. That game sets a standard on what "graphics" means for portable gaming. The 3.5" screen is big enough and you can change the size of the direction keys for ease of playing. This game is too addictive. Btw, I donated my collection of Nintendo DSi, DS Lite, Sony PSP and related games because the retina display and A4 processor spoiled me. Nintendo and Sony portable games can't compete. I might get the Sony PSP replacement with the 5" screen when it comes out, but right now, the games for the iPhone or iPod Touch are really great games at very low prices when compared to Nintendo or Sony "cartridges", respectively.
