689011_largerWow, digging back for our original review of Chair's masterful sequel Infinity Blade II [$5.99] and I can hardly believe we're creeping up on the two year anniversary of its release. Even all this time later, Infinity Blade II exemplifies just how possible it is to make an engrossing, "hardcore" title sing if it's crafted from the get-go with touchscreen controls in mind.

And right now, for the first time ever, you can grab Infinity Blade II for the sale price of just a dollar until June 30th.

Speaking of that Infinity Blade II review, it's important to keep in mind that the game has been heavily updated since that time with all sorts of new features, including the online ClashMob mode; plenty of new arenas, enemies and weapons; and – eventually – widescreen support for the iPhone 5.

Really, for being almost a couple of years old, Infinity Blade II still feels like it can hang with all the latest releases. If you've somehow managed to go this long without yet grabbing Infinity Blade II for your iOS device, I'd highly suggest jumping at the chance to do so for a dollar until the end of the month.

    This franchise is in DIRE need of a new game. I've done everything possible in one and 2 and after the cancellation (hiatus) of IB: Dungeons I haven't heard anything new on this very successful franchise. You'd think they'd release a new one considering how much money they made on the first 2.

    • Zdgames

      This could mean a new game is coming one went on sale before two came out so in dungeons could have been picked up by a different sub company there is hope yet

      • ImJPaul

        They took it completely off their site. It's pretty much done at this point. I'd expect IB3 before I expecting dungeons at this point.

      Same, it gets extremely boring. Hopefully Chair brings something else to the table with IB3, such as free movement and varied gameplay.

  • araczynski

    I don't think they have too much to worry about as long as new people keep buying iOS devices.

    I love both those games, but they both slow down my iPod drastically after about half an hour of gameplay.

    I really want Dungeons. Come on, guys, y'all announced it years ago. Why isn't it out?

    • Duhbyo47

      Dungeons is cancelled! It's very unfortunate...

      • hourglass

        Cancellation means very little. Games get cancelled, and then they get picked up by other studios.

      • themostunclean

        Sorry to disappoint you but that's accurate. Cancelled games are much more likely to stay dead than get picked up by other studios. There have been a few high-profile exceptions but its far from being common.

        Infinity Blade is a well-known IP of an established studio and the chances are basically zero that anyone else will get the rights. You'll see IB3, no doubt, but all signs point to Dungeons being dead.

        not accurate*

  • TheGrimCreeper

    The game is amazing. I had YoungSinatra buy it for me.

  • King Random

    Got IB2 and IB1 already 😀 - Although I got them for £1.99 and £0.69 respectively... xD

  • Jaylewl

    I heard Infinity Blade: Dungeon got cancelled. And no news for IB3.

  • Jeff432

    I never bought IB2 because I found the first IB to be way too repetitive and boring.

  • habitablejam3

    Me too, I never even beat IB1, it just got too boring.
