Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP ($4.99)
A point-and-click adventure game, “Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP” brings together appealing 8-bit graphics, puzzle-solving elements and a great soundtrack. The gameplay chronicles the exploits of Scythian, an explorer in a mythic realm driven to use her sword to battle with big bosses and apply sworcery to decipher musical mysteries. Simply double-tap where you'd like to go and your character moves. The Sworcery mode entails rotating your iPad to a landscape orientation and holding your character until she starts to sing “the song of sworcery,” which eventually enables puzzle-solving within the game. Sword mode makes you reorient the iPad to a horizontal position. Your character draws her sword, and buttons for assaulting and blocking enemies appear. The app transports you to an immersive and refreshingly unique fantasy.
