How to Play
- Objective - Infinity Blade III continues the Infinity Blade saga. The protagonist Siris, is joined by Isa, a lithe woman capable of attacking her targets quickly and stealthily. They take turns completing levels, though some levels allow you to choose between one fighter or the other.
- Hideout - When you're not fighting, you can find solace in the Hideout, the hub of Infinity Blade III. You're automatically sent back to this beach-side ruin in between levels. While you're in the Hideout, you can choose which level to take on next via the world map. You can also visit the Gem Cutter, the Potion Master, the Forge Master, and the Merchant.
- Menu - Your menu is where you can go over your inventory and buy/equip Isa and Siris with weapons, armor, accessories, and magic. You can also dole out any skill points you earn when you level up. You can access the menu through the sword icon at the top of the screen, and you can switch between Isa and Siris' inventory by tapping their icons on the top left-hand portion of the menu.
- Options - You can also find the game's options menu in the main menu. Here, you can view the game's instruction booklet, turn subtitles on and off, control the sound level, and make other adjustments. You can also erase your data from the game's server.
- Goals - Make sure to check the "Goals" submenu once in a while. You're awarded valuable chips when you earn certain achievements, but you need to collect them manually.
- Chips, Gold, and In-App Purchases - There are two types of currency in Infinity Blade III: Chips and gold. Gold is awarded when you defeat enemies, open treasure chests, sell items, or tap on bags scattered throughout the levels (keep a sharp eye out!). Chips are your reward for fulfilling certain goals; check the "Goals" submenu for more information. Gold is used to buy armor, weapons, and magic spells. Chips are used to buy healing potions, potion ingredients, and keys for treasure chests. Both gold and chips can be purchased via in-app purchases.
- Circle Marks the Spot - You move from place to place in Infinity Blade III by tapping on areas of interest marked by shapes. Circles move you forward or take you into combat, whereas triangles often lead to treasure chests, hidden doors, and other goodies. Some treasure chests and doors require keys or special skills to open.
- Get to the Point - Most of your travels from Point A to B are padded with cinema scenes of varying length. You can skip these scenes by pressing the fast forward button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The action automatically slows to normal if you're thrown into combat.
- Swipe to Fight - Combat makes up the majority of the action in Infinity Blade III, and much of that combat is carried out through swiping and tapping. By swiping in different directions, you can chain combos. Experiment!
- Dodging - When engaged in combat, you can dodge some attacks by pressing on arrows positioned on the left and right sides of the screen. Dodging takes up stamina, so use it sparingly. You can't dodge attacks if you're equipped with a heavy weapon.
- Blocking - When engaged in combat, you can block some enemy attacks. The method differs depending on what kind of weapon you have equipped; look for on-screen indicators that tell you what to do. You can't block attacks if you're equipped with dual weapons.
- Parrying - Parrying is arguably the most important move you learn in Infinity Blade III. Parrying blocks enemy attacks and often dizzies your attacker, giving you the perfect opportunity to swoop in for the kill.
- Enemy Tells - Every enemy broadcasts upcoming attacks through gestures and body language. Learn these "tells" and respond accordingly.
- Try, Try Again - You can count on losing the occasional battle in Infinity Blade III. Luckily, you get to keep all the gold, armor, and items you collected up to the moment of your death. You can also retry battles, though you're sent back to the Hideout if you die during a boss battle.
- Go Backwards - If you're having an especially rough time with a level, it's not a bad idea to go back to an easier level and do a little grinding for experience and gold.
- Check your Weapons - If you're having a super-bad time of things, don't forget to go through your "Items" submenu and buy more powerful armor, weapons, and spells. Also, check to see if you can slot any gems in your equipment. They might grant you a vital edge. The shape of the gem must match the shape of the slot on the equipment.
- Equip Rings - Rings grant different magic powers. They can be found, won in battle, or bought in the Items submenu.
- Draw Your Spell - To cast a spell in battle, tap the Magic icon, choose, your spell, and draw the indicated shape. Casting spells during a fight can be dangerous, so it's best to cast when your enemy is dizzied.
- The Potion Master - The Potion Master brews up helpful potions with ingredients that you find or buy. Brewing potions takes time.
- The Forge Master - The Forge Master can upgrade your mastered weapons, making them more powerful and allowing them to earn more experience. Forging takes time.
- The Gem Cutter - The Gem Cutter can combine gems to make more powerful augmentations for your equipment. Combining gems takes (you guessed it) time.
- The Merchant - The Merchant is a pirate lass who sells powerful weapons and will buy your mastered items. Her wares change frequently, and they're often very expensive.
Leveling Up and Skills
- Level Up Your Body and Equipment - You earn experience when you slay enemies in Infinity Blade III. Interestingly, your equipment earns experience too. When an item is mastered, it can no longer gain experience, and therefore this "equipment boost" no longer applies.
- Skills - Skills are very important for your success in Infinity Blade III. When you level up, you gain skill points that can be put to use in the "Skills" submenu. Isa and Siris have different skill sets.
- Trials - Trials pit you against solo challenges that award you chips, gold, and other consumables depending on how well you do.
- ClashMobs Return - With ClashMobs 2.0, you can (eventually) participate in cooperative battles that reward players if they reach certain qualifiers.
- Aegis Tournaments - Aegis tournaments are competitive battles that challenge participants to post a high score. Trials, ClashMobs, and Aegis tournaments can all be accessed through the world map after you've progressed a bit in the game.
