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

I wish someone had said that it lags on an iphone 4 to the point that it isn't fun to continually get hit due to the game lagging. After reading the review I didn't think it would be that bad. 5/5?...hardly 4/5 at best

Giving this game a second chance. The multiplayer mode seems fun, but I don't have any Gamecenter friends. Care to add me? johannaffendy

Look forward to be in battle with you guys

Easiest way i found to do that is to use whisper, use your powers right away when youre close and was able to hit him (so that he's open to the rest of your barrage). One time i was able to beat the Sable King using this strategy, and spamming forward slashes, i didnt even have to look at the fight. That was a long time back, maybe changes have been made since then.
I finally beat it! Thanks man

Playing this again today, and i have to say, this just has more of the right reasons to get back into playing than say, Rayman Run, unless you havent finished Rayman yet.

Im actually quite glad the Revenant mode was released, even though it did make Eternal almost non-existent.

Anyone else playing this because of Eternal mode? Or did Revenant mode replace it for you as well?

Sorry to hear that man. There are some other really good side scrolling runners that can quench your thirst for the genre if you need to fill the void that GoB left.

Tried any of these?

Could some of you add me on GC (the1chip) and send me revenant challenges? My revenant is maxed out but I have yet to see how that aspect of the mode works.
