Shallow but entertaining action

Infinity blade is a solid iOS medieval/fantasy action game. The game's premise is built on the idea of a brave and skilled warrior attempting to defeat the god-king, and evil tyrant with a mystical weapon (the titular infinity blade). In the opening cutscene this hero is defeated, and his essence absorbed into the blade. You then begin the game as the hero's son, intent on avenging your father. Each time you are defeated, you begin anew as another in your bloodline, with more difficult challenges ahead. Gameplay is pretty basic, requiring quick movements to dodge, block, or parry enemies attacks while slashing and casting spells of your own. That said, it works very well for the mobile device platform, and is entertaining despite its repetitive nature. There's little in the way of blood, but the violence is still rather graphic; knocking enemies off bridges, impaling them upon your sword, and leaping atop them to bury an axe in their head are typical finishing moves. The enemies can be scary looking, with realistic and frightening countenances, which could give younger kids a fright. Overall an entertaining title and a fun diversion even if the game itself lacks depth.
