List of Games Similar to Infinity Blade

This has been quite a genre now that it has a ton of fans, and a handful of games under this category now. Im trying to make a list with every game there is that plays exactly like Infinity Blade, which gave birth to the genre as far as i know.

There isnt exactly a name for this particular genre, and TA has a few threads that discuss a name for this, but for simplicity's sake, i'll stick to "similar to IB" for now.

The genre is known more for its unique melee fighting mechanics, which is basically a realtime 1 versus 1 combat, featuring swipes and taps to execute attacks, specials, and defensive moves. The game generally focuses more on defense rather than offense, but some titles have some mechanics that alter this.

This genre is also widely known to have some of the best looking graphics because of the low memory requirement of the game due mostly to the 1v1 nature of the game, and the on-rails-ish (usually) mechanics.

I am overly fond of the genre, so im making a list of all the titles under it.

Please help me with the list guys!

Thanks to the following who contributed to make up the list and help in the genre's discussion:

Do you guys think Karateka iOS will count as an IB variant? Personally i think it does, but wanted to hear from you guys before i add it, if i should ever.

Ark of the Ages should also apply.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
