Rage and Infinity Blade for iPhone

It’s amazing how far mobile gaming has come.  The iPhone 4 in particular has become the biggest gaming platform on the planet, drawing the attention of two of the world’s best developers.

Rage from legendary FPS developer id (Doom, Quake) is a first-person-rail-shooter.  The Zombie carnage gameplay looks amazing and has a control system that makes it easy to play.  It doesn’t have a huge amount of depth but admittedly is a precursor to the upcoming Rage console release coming this fall.

Infinity Blade is from another legendary FPS developer, Epic Games (Unreal, Gears of War) and their Chair development studio.  What’s amazing is that it runs a version of the Unreal 3 engine which is used in many XBox 360 and PS3 games.  It does a nice job delivering console-quality graphics with mobile-appropriate gameplay.  Leveling up your character is addictive and gameplay is fun and intuitive.
