I didn't take enough math classes to properly convey the degree of the alarm that we'd need to set off to properly gauge this freebie alert, but, regardless, Infinity Blade [$5.99] just dropped to free due to Apple's app of the week promotion. Infinity Blade is a platform-defining game, which utilizes the Unreal Engine and swipe gestures to bust out some of the best looking visuals out there coupled with a really slick swipe-based control method.

Sure, the original Infinity Blade might seem a little dated when held up next to its sequel, Infinity Blade II [$6.99] but both are phenomenal games that shouldn't be missed. Seriously though, if you don't already have Infinity Blade download it for free right now. You won't be disappointed.

    Thank you apple for this , got relief after bad mood due to rr3

  • http://matt-curtis.me/ Matt Curtis

    The game actually bored me on my other device, but I'll snag it anyways.

  • just0

    Been there, done that.

    Not much else to say...

  • nini

    That's two AAA titles going for free in two weeks, not bad Apple!

  • elmazzer

    Pretty sick :D so what? If they make infinite blade 3, infiniteblade 2 will go free? XDDD

    • ConceptNormal

      No. Infinity Blade 3 will be Freemium as well!

      • tahzblade

        Freeium !!!! Wounldnt that mean they will charge more IAP :( i hope its payed or its free but not money greedy

      • tahzblade

        freemium ****

      • Patrick Allen

        IB3 Hasn't even come out yet you dimwits.

      • MidianGTX

        I think that's the joke. Freemium would be a decrease in quality.

      • ConceptNormal

        It's a joke... But would we now be shocked if so? ...doubt it.

  • Eidaven

    Who doesn't own this already?

    • MrAlbum

      Good question.... *checks Top Free All Games chart*

      IB 2 is at #131 in the Top Grossing chart. IB 1 isn't even close to that.

      Looks like the franchise needed some more publicity so's Epic could recoup some of its losses from putting IB Dungeons on hold. Color me interested.

  • MartianLM

    I think I'm one of the few who just doesn't like this game. The graphics and controls are excellent, but at the end of the day it's little more than one of those dance mat games (press exactly this exactly now) and twice as frustrating (oops you were half a nano second too fast/slow so you're dead, that was fun).

    I know I know, LTP, but the mechanics just bored and annoyed me, with so many other games available I just CBA with it.

    But even with my dislike I can still see why this is a great game (amazing for free!)... If you like that sort of thing ;)

    • MidianGTX

      I didn't think much of it either. The combat wasn't terrible, but the whole "keep repeating a 10-minute section over and over" idea isn't a good basis for any game.

    • ImJPaul

      The appeal for the infinity blade games isn't to constantly redo the same 10 minute section. It's the fun of leveling up your character and getting the best armors and weapons and beating the God King. Then after that, there's still more to explore. It's much more then you think. You just have to be patient. Then there's IB2 which improved immensely on the original concept. The amount of content in that one is just absurd. Both really great games if you put the man hours in. I do understand that not everyone is gonna like every game and I respect that. I'm just such a fanboy. Ha.

      Same here, about 3 times through and I was dunzel washington

  • PotatoMan

    whatever happened to TA free play???

  • elmazzer

    Ya... I played many games pf style like this.. Eg: avengers... Its gets boring

    • homosaur

      To be fair to IB, Avengers also happens to be a huge pile of crap. The Batman game was at least well made.

  • Monteirri

    Hack rr3 funk ea and there scams

    • MrAlbum

      What the heck?! I can't even decipher that!

  • airwa1k

    Already have it. Beat it. Amazing.

  • SmackDatButt

    I remember buying this proudly for 7 dollars over a year ago. I'm glad I bought it, the game was, and still is, a worthy title that defined iOS.

  • Patrick Allen

    I dont want this I want Dungeons DX

  • dancj

    I played IB1 and loved it until I felt like I was hitting a pay wall.

    IB2 is much better in this respect (and every other respect)

    • agentblank

      Pay wall in IB? There is no paywall in that game.

      • dancj

        I know a lot of people didn't hit one, but for me I reached the stage where I could never afford to buy the next item and all of my weapons and armour re maxed out so I couldn't get any XP from them.

      • Gabriel.Voyager

        Sell some weapon and armour?
        No paywall, grind, sell unused stuff and go on :)

  • vesp67

    For those who don't have it, grab it while its free!!

  • istako

    Awesome! Im having so much fun reliving this awesome title! I love this game, seriously. I only wish they would release the sequel fir free too... I had it, but I had to remove it, then I had to change my region and... Well I don't have it anymore. Still - best iOS series ever. And we need Dungeons! I hope they resume and release it soon and I do really think that this is a sign. Who's with me?

    • dancj

      Wy can't you log into your old account to reinstall IB2?

  • debewley

    it really winds me up how game company's eat our money then release the damn thing for free! I only bought this a few days ago ! What a waste!

    • moeTi

      oh god no, you just lost 1$ and all you got were a couple hours of fun

      • dancj

        It was £4 - so that's probably $6-$7.

      • debewley

        It was 3 pound for me. my comment isn't directed at you fella.. The geezer above you:)

      • debewley

        Actually smart ass it was £3.00 so shut it !

      • King Random

        ACTUALLY, it was £2.99! XD

      • dancj

        According to AppShopper it was £3.99

      • daniel5457

        Who cares? It's free now.

    • homosaur

      If they told you when thy would be free, no one would buy them. Thems the breaks.

    I dream about a last iCloud update...

  • ImJPaul

    Now there's no excuse for any of you. Pick this up this and IB2 are the best bargains on the AppStore. Sooooo much gameplay and so many secrets to be found. My all time favorite iOS games right here.

  • Jacob007

    I'd still pay $7 for this game without reluctance if it weren't free and if I didn't have it already. Get the hell out of the comments and download the game.

    Thank me later. ;)

  • Appvism

    It'll be really really amazing if Chair throw in one last update to this - please god! - and add in some new items and enemies from IB2 to IB1... Am i asking too much?
