    After being introduced at Apple's September 10 iPhone event, the third game in the Infinity Blade series has been released in the App Store. Though it runs on multiple devices, Infinity Blade III has been optimized for both the iPhone 5s and iOS 7.

    The game includes the same tap-to-move controls found in the original two titles, as well as a larger, more immersive game world that features new quests, side missions, and ClashMob engagements. There are two playable characters, Siris and Isa, along with three new game modes that offer group-based challenges.

    Our sister site TouchArcade has published a review of the game that highlights some of the new features, noting that Infinity Blade III "takes the familiar Infinity Blade formula and tweaks it to the point of perfection."

    In addition to its in-depth review, TouchArcade has also provided a detailed plot guide, which walks gamers through the storyline of the first two games.

    Infinity Blade III is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for $6.99. [Direct Link] It supports both iOS 6 and iOS 7 and runs on the iPhone 4 and higher, the iPad 2 and higher, the iPad mini, and the fourth and fifth-generation iPod touches.

    Is it worth buying on an iPhone 5? I really want it, but not willing to buy it if it's going to give me a worse experience than it would on a 5s (if it's small graphics stuff like shadows though, idc).

    Will wait it out until 5S. :D But nice to see it go live!

    According to the review, it does. I'll definitely try it on iPad 4.

    Now clearly it's not going to be as good on iPhone 5 as 5S. But it will be by no means bad, so go get it.

    Does this work well on the iPhone 4?

    Oh, somehow I'm already downloading this...

    The UI isn't consistent-enough with iOS 7 ;)

    Now what would a Jony Ive-styled Infinity Blade be like...?

    I enjoyed the first 2, but quit after the 'lose all inventory/ gems' bug struck me two times too many.

    As much as I'd like to see how it ends, I'm not willing to risk another glitchy game or their subpar support.

    Recently sold all my iOS devices. If this was available on Android, I would easily pay $10+ for it. Loved the first two.

    Is this so far the only, truly optimized, 5S/iOS7 game?

    this game is definitely optimized for iOS7...

    I've played only a few rounds so far, but it runs much smoother on my iPhone 4 than IB 1 and 2.

    Can't wait to play this on my 5S, if I can get one before they sell out.

    I would get it, but I'm not sure what the graphics would look like on the iPad 2 as they will most likely scale them down.

    Snagged it this morning but won't really get a chance to play much until Friday. :( But I'm glad to know that there is a 3! With only a couple minor updates of 2 and no word of 3 I was thinking that was the end.

    Yes! The great thing about these titles from Chair is that they play well on older hardware (IB2 plays quite smooth on my 4th gen iPod Touch), albeit without some of the higher end eye-candy.

    I would expect IB3 to do the same scaling.

    There needs to be a comparison guide showing the different graphics effects on different devices. The newer the device the more glitter that is enabled is my understanding.

    Kind of lost interest on part 2. Let see how it goes on part 3.

    anyone weary of the IAP showing coins for 49.99???

    can anyone who's gotten the game comment on the need for IAP?

    i get free games requiring IAP to go on, but if you pay 7 bucks.. it should be a pretty complete game no?
