I've you've got some space to spare on your mobile or tablet, consider updating Infinity Blade II [$6.99]. The game's third update, titled Skycages, has just rolled out, introducing several new arenas, a few new blades, a "new weapon type," and fresh rings, shields, and helmets. According to Chair, this update will expose you to "relics from the past come to life," which sounds cool if you're into the game's fiction. Also, buckle up for an "epic conclusion."

Don't have this follow-up to one of iOS' best games? Here's a good chance to catch it on the cheap: Infinity Blade II has been lowered in price alongside this update. Starting now and for a limited time, it's $2.99 instead of its usual $6.99.

We've got some screens of the new content just above, so check them out. The update, in total, weighs in at around 1GB, but you really don't mind deleting a movie or something for the chance to equip new loot in a good game, right?

    This is how to do a high-quality game. Release it at a high enough price to make your money without IAP, and then provide strong support for it so people get plenty of value and can't wait for your next release (IB Dungeons).

      OMG INFINITY BLADE DUNGEONS IS DRIVING ME CRAZYYYYYY!!! "coming soon" is what they said in March. It's now August. Lol. Oh and IB2 has insane IAP. Its just completely optional and for the lazy. I never had a problem getting anything. Just had to do the grind for a bit. Best games on iOS. By far.

      I'm pretty sure nothing more needs to be added -- the game is now complete.

    I feel like I should make an effort to actually finish IBII.  I really enjoyed the first one, even the fiction behind it, but I just didn't have patience for the second one.  I think it was the branching paths.  I had no way to turn around if I realized I was going the wrong way, and I had to remember where the bosses were and what order in which to defeat them.  This wasn't an issue in the first game and it made the on-rails nature less of an issue.

      There is no set order to defeat the bosses?

      • Dan Kinnaley

        I know there isn't an order you "have" to do it in, but I certainly felt like it was easier if you beat some before others.

        Agreed. I always try to knock out the golliath as quickly as possible. Them damn dog types are a pain to deal with and whatnot as rebirths stack up.

        You take on the top tower boss first which then unlocks 90% of the towers side paths to explore. At that point you have three bosses you need to take down in any order. After that its back to the top tower boss round 2, then off to kill radriar's three lieutenants and them radriar (god king) himself.

        The oriental keep with its three lieutenants and boss is the 'tutorial'.

        Thanks for the tips Paul. Should make it easier now!
