Did you reboot your device?

Only the opening scene lagged for me. (as you could see in the video)

Thanks for the videos guys! good to see it still looks good on the A4. But I couldn't help but notice that you guys are still running iOS4. Apparently iOS5 is supposed to help performance, can anyone confirm that? I want to know if I should upgrade.

In Infinity Blade 2 you can't dodge as much as you like. You become exausted. (Because dodging was overused in IB 1). You get to dodge 3 times until you have to pause with the dodging and catch your breath. You can see on the dodge buttons how many dodges you can perform at the moment.

I just posted your video on the Infinity Blade forums over at Epic's official boards, mainly because one user has logged in to report the following:

"I've been playing IB2 on my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 as well as on my iPhone 4S and the performance and graphics difference is shameful.

As I predicted all is well on my iPhone 4S but on my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 the game crashes, it hangs, forget about using the fast forward button, and the lightning bug is still there with too bright characters and too dark areas of the castle.

The game is awesome and then some but, I think, you must play it on the 4S or iPad 2 to really enjoy it. I don't own an iPad so I can't have an opinion about that ... how about you guys? have you noticed any differences? let me get back to IB2 now ...

Cheers!"


Now, from looking at your video only the opening 10/20 seconds stuttered and the game played pretty smoothly from then on in. The iPod touch has half the RAM of the iPhone 4, so I'm struggling to see how he could say that the performance is so poor, when your iPod touch 4th Gen ran it like it did in the video you posted.

Did you notice any screen feedback issues? Like if swipes took longer to register, or if pressing dodge resulted in a delay that got you hit, etc?

Thanks!

No, I haven't had any of those problems.

Just to add to this, the amount of times you're allowed to dodge varies with your armor. So, equipping lighter armor will allow you to dodge more often without becoming exhausted. And you can dodge more than 3 times per battle, your dodges will regenerate. This only keeps you from dodging many times in quick succession.

Thank you sir!
