Infinity Blade free in App Store

Chair Entertainment's iOS combat brawler Infinity Blade is being offered free for Thanksgiving week.

Released in 2010 to wide acclaim, the medieval touch-screen brawler was the first iOS game created in Unreal Engine 3. At the time of its launch, the game was heralded by Apple as a harbinger of mobile gaming's graphically impressive future. It sold more than 274,000 copies in its first few days after release. Two sequels have since been launched.

The Epic Games title features an armored knight as he fights his way through a castle-full of enemies, utilizing parries, dodges, blocks and swipes, and making use of a weapons upgrade path.

"With millions of players worldwide, the original Infinity Blade remains one of the most popular games ever launched on the App Store," said Donald Mustard, creative director of Chair Entertainment. "We're excited for this opportunity to invite even more gamers to try Infinity Blade and test their skills."
