One of our favorite games of 2012, God of Blades [Free], is on sale again. For a limited time, you can grab the super atmospheric, side-scrolling action game for $1.99 instead of its usual $2.99. Smell that? That's the smell of savings wafting into your noses, folks.

We've gone over this before in our review, but what this game lacks in mechanical sizzle it makes up threefold with its art and sound direction. The tortured, veiny worlds and the paranoid sci-fi vibe conjured by the visuals and music really draw you in. It's a heck of a ride, too.

Give it a shot. You might be surprised. We've got a TA Plays of the game below, too, if you'd like a closer look at the game.

    Can't help to think of Star Wars when I see that app icon.

    • Cheeseball

      Yup, Jedi Outcast vibes right there.

    This has been my favorite iPhone game since I downloaded when it was released. Finally broke a million on a endless mode last week!

    Awesome game. Can't beat the price, it's one of the most eye pleasing games on ios

    A great looking game, the first I tried on my new iPod touch 5th gen when it went on sale... sadly very thin in terms of gameplay.

    Too bad the game is complete garbage

    • drewpoc

      Complete garbage? Pretty harsh for such a well designed game. There is many hours of detail, art work, sound put into this game. What defines a "good" game to you?..lol

    Reminds me somewhat of infinity blade, only in terms of the god blade and the nameless king you play with.
