Epic of Kings: $4.99 for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad (Requires iOS 6.1 or later) Rated 12+
After being delayed due to Apple's app approval process, Epic of Kings has finally made its way to the App Store. The premium title utilizes Unreal Engine 4 to deliver high end visual graphics, but early reviews have been very poor. Players do not like the limited controls and lack of options, such as no cloud saves. One App Store commenter compared it to Infinity Blade without the parts that made Infinity Blade fun. The fantasy adventure game promises to deliver a "deep combat system using intuitive touch controls," "epic boss fights" and an "engaging story."
