App description: One of the Best iPhone and iPad Games of 2012: Action- TouchArcade

Pocket Tactics' Action Game of the Year!

God of Blades now fills your iPhone 5 screen with gorgeous, sword-swinging pulp fantasy!

5/5 TouchArcade!
"The tortured, veiny world the art conjures and the surreal music it uses to bolster its paranoid sci-fi vibe are both riveting aspects that suck you into a surreal universe and doesn't let go."

8/10 Edge Magazine!
"God Of Blades enhances its glorious alien bloodshed with lavish presentation that blends the pulp sensibilities of paperback fantasy novels with the bizarre visions found on prog rock album covers."

4.5/5 148 Apps!
"Theres nothing quite like it on the App Store, and it's fun to boot. All hail God of Blades!"

5/5/ AppSpy!
"...there's not an inch of this game that isn't dripping with a strangely appealing other-worldly sheen."

A love-song to pulp fantasy tales of yore, 70s synth-prog-landscape oddities, and forgotten places, God of Blades is a gorgeous, visceral sidescrolling physics-based sword-fighting adventure.

Praise for God of Blades:

Cripes. So many reasons to like this. The pulpy sci fi narrative, the prog rock lettering and album art backdrops, the spectral swordsmen and the fearsome sense of connection. God of Blades is pretty much glorious, basically. - Christian Donlan, Hookshot Inc.

...we were reminded of Shadow of the Beast for some reason probably because of the music and the setting... thats a very good thing.- Chris Priestman, IndieGameMag

The White Whale Games crew has gone above and beyond demonstrating their devotion to stories and literature, and [Loreseeker] is one of the most creative and brilliant ways they could have possibly conceived to get people to go to those incredible repositories of human knowledge known as libraries. - Brad Hilderbrand, Gamezebo

With their upcoming title God of Blades, the small indie developer has created an intriguing mashup of iOS genres. - A.T. Faust III, AppAdvice.com

God of Blades is dripping with style - Jim Squires, Gamezebo

ive noticed some crashing, doing revanant when you do a retry it kicks you back to the home screen, ipad 3 nothing running just rebooted and it still does it, and the mode is AWESOME!

I see the price drop in the US App Store, but the Toucharcade app's Watch List is still listing it at $2. Is there normally lag in the listings updates? I can't remember it happening before, at least.

Thanks for any clarification!

Same here. Everytime i start Revenant, in any of it's sub screens, there will be a freeze of about 10 seconds. Whenever i "retry" it freezes (i think these are the same loading processes as the first) and it'll eventually crash to the springboard. It isnt game breaking as it only happens when you are outside of a game (or at the very beginning when "retrying"), but it needs to be fixed.

I think Revenant mode is my favorite mode right now, but the crashes need to be fixed.
