Infinity Blade fastest grossing app in store

Still don’t think the iPhone is a gaming platform?

According to Appmodo, the iOS game Infinity Blade has grossed $1.6 million since its launch last week, on Dec. 9.

Named IGN’s iPhone Game of the Year, Infinity Blade allows users to improve their characters and earn new battle gear as they fight through 3D castles. Here’s how the developer sums up the storyline:

For untold ages, the God King has ruled with an iron fist – his power is incalculable; his followers, legion. Now you must journey to the Dark Citadel to battle his Titans, one by one, until you face the tyrant himself. As it has been for all in your bloodline, this is your birthright – to free your people from an endless legacy of darkness. The immortal can be vanquished – but only if heart, mind, and steel are one.

Using Unreal Engine 3 technology, this game really is a piece of art. The attention to detail and graphics are stunning.

The app is $5.99 and runs on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. You can visit the iTunes Store via the link below. Best $6 you’ll spend this week on the App Store.
