If you're tired of using your iPhone's motion sensors to make lightsaber and swordfighting noises, you can now use it to actually swordfight, albeit in the hardcore action-RPG from the minds at Chair, Infinity Blade. The mobile game hits later this week, but we've already had the chance to check out the title and offer up some early thoughts.
"Combat, really the core of the game, begins by simply tapping on the enemy before you. Your character will engage in battle, framed before the massive, lumbering guardians of the tower, with his sword at the ready. Icons on each corner of the screen will determine which way you dodge the incoming blows, while your shield retains a specific level of health before it shatters, so be certain to use your defenses strategically. The real substance of the battle is in the offense, however, as you slash your finger across the screen in the direction you want your sword to move, making both timing and direction equally important in blocking and striking."
