I, Gladiator Review: Aliquanto Superius Mediocris: Hardcore Droid

Late in 2010, Chair Entertainment released an iOS game called Infinity Blade to immense and immediate financial and critical success. Since this game is still sadly an iOS exclusive, here’s a quick rundown of the core gameplay for those of us with superior taste in mobile devices: the focus is on one-on-one melee duels; you can’t move freely, but you can tap buttons to dodge left and right, tap another button to block a limited number of times per battle, or swipe in a direction that matches your opponent’s strike to parry. Successful parries throw your opponent off balance and give you an opening to attack; to execute combos, you must chain direction-sensitive swipes in the right rhythm. Think Devil Meets Cry meets Fruit Ninja meets Parappa The Rapper and you’re in the neighborhood. (Android, I, Gladiator, iPad, iPhone) 2.8/5
