Earlier this morning, Eli and I sat down with One Epic Knight [Free]. It's a behind-the-back endless runner that features a chatty protagonist and a fantasy setting the knowingly nods at video game fantasy conventions. Mechanically, Epic Knight does a couple of hip things that differentiate from its source material. Most notably, it has lanes: as you run, you'll swipe between three different layers of level in order to avoid obstacles and collect loot. There's also a neat offensive-slash-defensive mechanic, which has you picking up swords and shields to protect yourself from stationary obstacles and roaming monsters.
We're a little on the fence about this one. Epic Knight does some cool stuff, but it also feels kinda floaty and a lot of its obstacles are poorly telegraphed. Give this a look before you jump in or start spending dough on its IAP:
