A lot of game-changing updates are coming out this week thanks to the release of iOS 5 and its long-anticipated cloud support across devices. We want to go ahead and hit pause on the whole digital whirlwind to bring you this choice bit of information: Capybara Games has pushed out its iOS 5-centric update for Sword and Sworcery [$4.99], most notably adding in a Twitter sign-in functionality that jives with the integrated account you’ll be using in the OS update. It’s also addressed some ‘hard-to-find’ bugs and somehow tweaked and sharpened the “artwork and visual designers that have helped define” the game.

Sword and Sworcery is a ridiculously special experiential game with some of the coolest music, art and points of design we’ve seen on touch devices. It’s great and we think you should own it. If you don’t, go to a doctor because you’re broken.

What’s next? I don’t know, but I hope it has the words “cloud” and “save." Or "badger." The latter is just because I like badgers.

    Got tired of the game in the first 15 minutes when I realized that it had already begged me to tweet about how awesome the game was to my friends 20 times. Why bother to create an immersive atmosphere when you ruin it by saying "Tweet this, please" every few steps?

      I find the look of the game slightly interesting, but "a ridiculously special experiential game with some of the coolest music, art and points of design we’ve seen on touch devices" is way over the top. Ultimately, it's a point-and-click adventure done in 8-bit styled-graphics. Aside from a deeper color pallete (varied shades of greys browns and black) to choose from and tweeting abilities, it's very "Kings Quest V" circa 1991.

      Don't get me wrong, I don't want to hate on the game. It's VERY polished, and feels like a lot of time and love went into it. But given the hype and praise bestowed on it, I was expecting something much deeper and something more experimental.

    Have to agree its like that game you should like or want to like.

    but take away the sounds and the pixel art which I agree is awesome.. And underneath lies hardly no game at all just a shockingly boring experience.

    It's a great game, but the twitter thing was annoying.
