Infinity blade is the best ftw

Infinity blade to the max, no other game is better this month. I had high hopes of Aralon being the best game ever until i played it, it was so disappointing with the glitches and the controls.

hook worlds........it wasnt the biggest......it wasnt the best........but it runs on every single device and it is clearly polished

(plus it is by an indie dev)

IB sold out to IAP

Aralon doesnt work well on every device

Runner up:

NOVA 2 (the only reason it was not the GOTM was because the online multiplayer 10 v 10 was accomplished already....so it wasnt revolutionary)

Dungeon Defenders. Runner up Lara croft and RR2. I find Aralon fun at first but eventually got tedious.
