Infinity Blade 3: Most Wanted Features
A bigger sword is a great start.
Chair Entertainment's Infinity Blade games set a high benchmark for iOS devices with remarkable graphics, superb touchscreen gameplay and abundant content, from additional weaponry to armor types. With rumors of a third game in development, we keep daydreaming about new features.
The developer has yet to officially announce the game, but that didn't stop us from putting together a wish list of what we'd like to see.
-With the first two games, there were plenty of bad guys to face, but in part three, we need even bigger enemies. Not just the ogres that stand almost as tall as the screen, but big four-legged demons that deal significantly more damage than anyone with a sword. For that matter, the ability to play as these characters would be awesome. Why do we always control the good guy? Whipping heroic knights into oblivion would be a good change of pace.
-We've seen plenty of weapons in Infinity Blade 2, including dual-wielded swords and heavy blades that require both hands. However, that shouldn't stop Chair Entertainment from expanding the arsenal for part three. Introduce samurai swords, sais and maybe even elemental blades, like ones that can freeze your opponent or set them on fire. Since Machete Kills hits theaters October 10th, how about a good old-fashioned machete - or maybe even two?
-Infinity Blade 2 introduced a new social aspect called ClashMob, where users passed challenges to one another via Facebook and Twitter, eventually recruiting their friends and gaining new rewards in the process. Chair Entertainment could take this one step further with online integration, allowing players to team up in synchronized quests, approaching goals from each end of the battlefield until they eventually meet in the middle, taking on the Deathless at the same time. On top of that, if the development team wants to take the classic Double Dragon route, it could have players battle near the end to determine the best warrior.
-The previous Infinity Blade games had plenty of missions to complete for rewards and upgrades, but the third chapter could easily expand with the addition of side missions and perhaps even dungeons. Since the cancellation of Infinity Blade Dungeons last month, we crave more areas to explore.
-If it's even possible, Chair Entertainment should go all-in with the game's visuals. Sure, the first two games were spectacular, but with the new iPad's Retina Display support, it'll create a fantastic-looking world, with imaginative enemy designs, beautiful animations and the kind of finishing moves that would put most fighting games to shame.
-Finally, we need more women warriors. Girls can kick butt too, yes?
-Android support, because it's long overdue.
