The game utilizes the Unreal 3 engine for 3D graphics and is designed for superior performance on newer devices. With Apple’s quad core chip the true potential of the game will be unleashed and the 4 inch retina display will do true justice to it as well.
The storyline of the game has not been changed in the new Infinity Blade 2, but has been improved for much better game play experience. There are three totally new combat modes, and different classes of weapons, shields and spells to choose from.

The sequel to the Blood and Glory game, the new Blood and Glory Legend comes with the same slash and kill action but in a totally new form. The Blood and Glory Legend game revolves around gladiators who are out there to fight for glory and players begin as novice gladiators fighting their way up the ladder while gaining experience as well as newer skills and abilities as they evolve. Earlier it was the fight to the top to be the ultimate gladiator, but now the game play involves following the path to glory while becoming a legend.
The game brings improved graphics and game play. The visuals too have been improved and the movement of the characters, which were earlier just limited to some moves in front of the opponent, now take a larger viewpoint as well. The game also incorporates new slow motion Glorious strike moves along with special moves just to bump up the action and excitement of the game.
It is very nice to have played this game that offers some hands on action for players, rather than just aiming to shoot. The only catch is that your health will not last through an entire tournament. So you can fight well, survive to the end, and become the champion, or stumble terribly in the first match and have little to no health to get through the remaining four. But by spending some glu coins, which are awarded upon completing each level you can buy potions to regain health during a tournament or fight.
