Different Name for "Infinity Blade Clone"

Heya

There comes a time every so often when games modeled off a prior mode of gameplay have to stop being referred to as a clone. This happened with the FPS genre (Doom clones) and sandbox games (GTA clones) etc.

With touchscreens here to stay I think its safe to say that games modeled of Infinity Blade will continue. Not always to copy but to sometimes break new ground.

So we need a new genre name. Surely you creative TA creative types can come up with something.

I propose Screenslicers. Yep it sucks. Help

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations

"A new Swipefighter from Gameloft.." sounds about right.
