Infinity Blade III's limited-time Turkey Helms are creepy

For Thanksgiving, ChAIR is offering free Turkey Helms in Infinity Blade III that grant Isa and Siris an experience and skill-point boost. That's all well and good, but I don't think I'd be able to play through the game with t...

Infinity Blade III hits the App Store on September 18

I quite liked Infinity Blade, and that's coming as someone who infrequently plays iOS games. Granted, I completely missed out on the sequel, but the platform-appropriate controls and impressive visuals may pull me back in no...

Infinity Blade Dungeons officially cancelled

iOS games aren't popular around these parts, I know, but I was personally quite looking forward to Infinity Blade Dungeons. I enjoy the mainstay games in the series, and the idea of a loot-nabbin' dungeon crawler in its unive...

Infinity Blade studio does Obama/Romney fight simulator

[Update: It's gone live early and is available now.] Usually, cute little games in which political opponents fight each other are the realm of Flash-based site ads, not well-known development studios. ChAIR, however, has deci...

Infinity Blade II comes to Android ... but it's a fake

The mobile game market is a treasure trove of interesting little bits of software, but such treasure is to be approached with all the care of a whip-wielding adventurer. Sometimes the best prizes aren't all they're cracked up...

Infinity Blade is Epic's most profitable game

Most readers will associate Epic Games almost exclusively with Gears of War these days, but Cliffy B's muscular man fantasy is not the company's prime breadwinner. Those who know about pulling power of mobile gaming (or just ...

Review: Infinity Blade II photo
Review: Infinity Blade II
by Jim Sterling

When our future selves look back on the time mobile gaming truly earned its place in this industry, there is no doubt that Infinity Blade will be seen as the first major turning point. Its critical acclaim and commercial success, not to mention the quality of graphics and engaging gameplay, stood as the moment where more than just Angry Birds fans took notice of iOS as a legitimate gaming platform. 

Few games have really attempted to seize the momentum and continue what Infinity Blade started, so it seems only fitting that ChAIR returns a year later to remind us exactly how ambitious and downright enthralling a mobile title can be. This is Infinity Blade II -- bigger, deeper, and more ready than ever to prove that gaming on your phone isn't just for your mother.
