^				Introduction				[IB0]^
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

This is a complete walthrough for the iPhone App Infinity Blade. The game 
itself is very short, around 10-20 minutes for a full playthough. Luckily 
there is excellent replay value, and it should keep you occupied for several 
hours.


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
^				Controls/Combat				[IB1]^
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

The controls are pretty self-explanitory, since the game forces you to 
complete a tutorial at the beginning. 


HUD Controls
------------
-At the top of the screen is a small pause button. Pressing it at any time 
will allow you access your inventory, shop at the store, view 
achievements/leaderboards, invert the look axis, start back at bloodline 1, 
or completely reset your character. 

-Pausing the game during combat causes a "Restart Battle" button near the 
bottom of the screen.  This button is very useful when you are fighting the God
King, because losing to him has a very heavy price (you have to start back at 
the beginning of the castle on a new bloodline). 

-There is a small ">>" that will appear in the lower right hand corner during
cutscenes. Holding this will put the cutscene on fast forward (useful after 
you've already seen all the cutscenes).

-Simply drag your finger around the screen when not in combat to move the 
camera angle.

-Tapping the "!" in the bottom right corner before a battle will reveal the
enemy's level and resistances.


Combat Controls [C1]
--------------------
In Infinity Blade, you cannot simply slash an enemy to death like you could
in Zelda. If you try this, you will inflict 1/4 of the normal damage you deal
to the enemy and probably lose some HP in the process. The enemy must be opened
up for an attack before you can inflict any major damage. This is accomplished
in one of 5 principle ways: Dodge, Block, Parry, Super, and Stab. Magic can 
also be used to inflict damage, but using it does not open the enemy up for 
an attack.


Dodge:
======
Dodge is my favorite way of opening an enemy for attack. During combat, there
will always be two directional arrows in the lower left/right corners. 
Pressing one of these will cause your character to dodge either to the left 
or right. A good rule of thumb is to always dodge *toward* the incoming sword.
If the sword is coming in from the right, dodge right. Now, as the enemies 
get more difficult, they'll start pulling off more complex swings. Sometimes 
you'll have to dodge toward the attack, sometimes away, and sometimes it 
doesn't matter which direction you must dodge. Note that punches *cannot* be 
dodged.

After dodging several times in a row (and sometimes after only one dodge), 
the words "Dodge Break!!" will appear on the screen, and the enemy will be 
open for attack.


Block:
======
On the bottom of the screen in the middle is a small shield icon with a 
number in it. The number represents the HP of your shield. When it hits 
zero, you can no longer block. The Shield HP replenishes after each battle.
At first, enemy attacks only take 1 or 2 HP from your shield, but as the 
enemies get progressively harder, the amount they take from your shield 
grows. 

To open up an enemy using block, simply hold down the block icon until 
the words "Block Break!!" appear on the screen, and the enemy will be open 
for attack. Be careful about cowering behing your shield, though, because 
sometimes the enemy can break your block with a particularly powerful attack.
I recommend sticking to dodges for the most part, and only using block when 
the enemy is about to punch you.


Parry:
======
Parry is the most difficult way of opening the enemy for attack. Basically,
you just slash your sword in the incoming direction of the enemy sword. 
Sometimes the words "Parry Break!!" will appear, and sometimes "Tap!!" will
appear. If "Tap!!" appears, simply tap the screen repeatedly until 
"Parry Break!!" appears.  As the enemies grow more difficult, it becomes 
harder and harder to predict where they will slash, thus complicating parry.
Again, I recommend sticking to dodge for the most part.


Super:
======
In the left hand corner is the "Super" icon, which slowly fills as you take
damage or swing your sword. Pressing this icon will interrupt the enemy no 
matter what they are doing, and completely open them up for a good 5 seconds.
This is extremely useful, and a good battle-finisher. The time frame is 
large enough to pull off Huge, Mega, and even Ultra Hits (see Combo section).


Magic [C2]:
===========
Magic can either be extremely powerful, or completely useless, depending on
the resistances of an enemy.  In the later bloodlines, it seems almost all 
the enemies are resistant to offensive magic (especially the God King). If 
an enemy is resistant, the spell will only do 1 point of damage for every 
magic stat you have, which sucks. You can view what types of magic the enemy
is resistant to by tapping the "!" button in the lower right corner before 
starting the battle.


These are the 6 types of magic with their associated drawing symbols:

Fire: O

Effect: Inflict Fire Damage


      _
Ice:   |

Effect: Inflict Ice Damage



Shock: /_
	 /

Effect: Inflict Shock Damage and Shock Ailment



Poison: \ /
	 X
	/_\
	
Effect: Inflict Poison Damage and Poison Ailment



Heal: |_|

Effect: Heal Player HP


	 _
Shield: | |

Effect: Restore Shield HP


In my opinion, Heal is the best type of magic. While casting any spell will 
interrupt the enemy, I find it humorous that the enemy will stop mid-swing to 
let me heal all of my HP back. The number after the magic spell just lets you 
know how powerful it is. Ice 2 is drastically better than Ice 1, and Heal 3 
is drastically better than Heal 2. Right now 3 is the highest degree of any 
given spell, with the exception of Poison and Shield, which cap out at 2.



Stab:
=====
Every once in a while after an enemy charges at you or does a particularly 
violent swing, a blue circle will breifly appear on either his leg, side, 
or head. Quickly tapping the circle initiates a stab which will inflict 2x
damage to the enemy and open him up for attack.


Combos [C3]:
============
There are 3 types of combos: Huge, Mega, and Ultra Hit.

-Huge Hit is a 3-hit combo that is accomplished by alternating swipes with
your sword (I usually do down-up-down). After the three swipes, your 
character will jump in the air and deliver a Huge Hit, which deals 2x damage.

-Mega Hit is a 4-hit combo that is accomplished by alternating swipes with your
sword ever two swipes (I usually do down-down-up-up). After the four swipes,
your character will jump in the air and deliver a Mega Hit, which deals 
2.5x damage.

-Ultra Hit is a 5-hit combo that is accomplished by hitting every direction
with your sword once and then a fifth slash (I usually do 
up-down-left-right-up). After the five slashes, your character will jump in
the air and deliver an Ultra Hit, which deals 3x damage.




>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
^				Status/Level-up				[IB2]^
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Infinity Blade has a unique level-up system, in that you can only level up so 
long as you you have non-mastered equipment equipped. As your equipment gains
experiance points, your character gains experiance points. Thus, if you master
every item in the game, you can no longer level-up. Mastering every item in the
game will get you about halfway through level 45.


XP
==
Experiance Points, or XP, are earned at the end of every battle. You'll get XP 
bonuses based on which items you have equipped (for example, the Ruin sword 
giveyou the XP+++ bonus), how much shield you have left at the end of the 
battle, how much damage you dealt, how fast you completed the battle (kill 
speed).

Mastering a piece of equipment removes it's ability to help you level up, but
also gives you +1 stat point.

Leveling up gives you +2 stat points


Stat points can be distributed among the following stats:

Health (+60 HP for every stat)
Attack (+1 damage for every stat)
Shield (+1 HP to your current shield for every stat)
Magic  (+10 magic damage for every stat)

Since there are currently only 88 items in the game, and since level 45 is the
cap, then there are only 2*44 + 88 = 176 stat points in the game. Use them 
wisely. Since a good shield can greatly increase your Shield HP, the Shield 
stat is pretty much a waste; don't you dare give any stat points to it! When
I played through the game, I put every last stat point towards the attack stat.
These are my stats after mastering every item and reaching level 45:

Health: 60 + 2400 (from my armor and helm)  =	2460
Attack: 177 + 204 (from my weapon and helm) =	381
Shield: 1 + 44 (from my shield)    	    =	45
Magic:  1 + 30 (from my ring)      	    = 	31 

(Remember that with magic, that translates to 310 damage normally, 2-3x that 
amount if super effective (think pokemon), or a mere 31 damage if enemy is 
resistant)

Thus, every time I slashed, I would deal 381 damage, and Ultra Hits would deal
over 1000 damage. Dodge Breaks meant almost certain death for my enemies, as
I could get in a good 4-5 slashes + 1 Mega Hit per break. This allowed me 
to finish battles extemely quickly, which heavily boosted the amount of exp I
earned at the end of every battle (not that it matters now that everything is
mastered). With these stats, I was able to complete 17 bloodlines before 
getting bored.


===================
Maximum Stats  [S1]
===================

For your amusement, these are the maximum possible stats, if you attribute
every stat point to that one thing, as well as optimize your equipment 
or that stat:

Key:        Skill + Skill Bonus from Items (Items needed)	= Max Stat
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Max Health: 10620 + 2520  (Helio Armor and Oroku)		= 13140
Max Attack: 177 + 204     (Infinity Blade and Adamantine Helm)	= 381
Max Shield: 177 + 50      (The Wall)				= 227
Max Magic:  177 + 36      (Ring of Ice & Fire and Mana Crown)	= 213


While it's probably a good idea to balance your player by giving stats to a 
little of everything, I personally like being able to deal massive damage with
a single blow. The only downside to my strategy is that in the later 
bloodlines, a single dodge mistake could mean half or even all of your life 
since the enemies start dealing 900+ damage with a single blow.  However, on 
the contrary, using a super allows me to inflict 2000+ damage to my enemies.

^				Castle Walkthrough			[IB4]^
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

**Spoilers Ahead**

The God King's castle has 11 total enemies. This guide will walk you through 
all 11. The (T) means there is a treasure chest in the area. I will take you 
through the game once, and any subsequent playthroughs are more or less 
identical than the previous playthrough; the only difference is that the 
enemies grow stronger and more difficult, the amount of gold in the sacks goes
up, and the quality of the items in the chests go up.


===============
The Throne Room
===============
The game begins in the God King's throne room. This is a tutorial level, so 
just follow the instructions on screen. After taking a few feeble strikes at 
the God King's right-hand man, he'll knock your sword and shield away and then
leave you to be ruthlessly slaughtered by the God King himself via the Infinity
Blade through your gut. The God King then mocks your weakness by hoping aloud 
that your decendents will fare better. Too bad his wish will come true.


================================
The Cobblestone Bridge - Enemy 1
================================
You will then start at the beginning of the God King's castle as the son of 
aforeslaughtered hero. Basically, this is how the game works: The God King's
castle has 11 total enemies (3 of which are optional). After reaching the God
King, you will either win or lose. After the God King's battle, you'll start 
back at the beginning of the castle again with all of your equipment and gold,
and all the enemies will have leveled up.  This is the "Bloodline" system. Just
think of it as New Game+. Everytime you reach the end of the game, you start
back at the beginning of the game with all of your stuff, and the bloodline 
number gets incremented once. I was able to master every single item by 
bloodline 16 (i.e. my 16th time through the castle). 

During the cutscene where our hero is walking down the road, keep an eye out
for small brown bags that randomly appear throughout the castle and during
cutscenes. Tapping them will give you gold. There are two in the opening 
scene: one in the branches of a tree, and one of them at the base of a tree.
If you miss them, don't worry about it, there are tons of them. Either way,
tap the enemy on the bridge to start the battle. 

This is another tutorial in which you will learn how to dodge. After killing
the enemy, you can start slashing like crazy to get bonus XP. The post enemy
screen will award you experiance points and gold based on how well you did.
When you master an item, make sure to immediately replace it with another 
non-mastered item - otherwise you start losing potential XP. You can get 
more items at the store (press pause and tap "Character" to get to the 
store), or you can find them in chests.

Now look to the left and right and collect any bags of gold or potions you
see lying on the ground. Potions can be used outside of combat by tapping 
the lower left corner of the screen. They will restore all of your health,
but you can only carry a maximum of 5. Don't worry about using them, there
are about 2 potions per castle, per bloodline, so you'll probably max out 
your potions in a few playthroughs.


===================================
The Castle Drawbridge (T) - Enemy 2
===================================
Tap the blue circle at the entrance to the castle to advance along the path.
You'll be in front of a drawbridge with another enemy on it. Look to the
left and right and collect any sacks of gold or potions just laying there.
Tap the enemy to enter the second battle. 

This is another tutorial battle in which you'll learn how to parry. Just 
follow the instructions on screen to whoop the bad boy. After the battle,
tap the treasure chest at the base of the tree at the bottom of the screen.
Then, tap the large door to enter the castle.

Once inside the courtyard, collect any gold you see, but do NOT engage the
enemy in front of you. Instead, look to the right and tap the blue circle
inside of the archway leading out to the balcony.

=======================
Balcony 1 (T) - Enemy 3
=======================
During the opening cutscene, you'll see 1-2 bags of gold. Either grab them
during the cutscene, or right after it. Time to kill to guard assigned to the
chest. Just time your dodges and slash when it says "Dodge Break!!" After you
whoop him, you'll automatically grab the chest and go back to the courtyard.


==============================
Statue Courtyard (T) - Enemy 4
==============================
This battle is pretty straight forward. After the battle, grab any gold at
the base of the pillars, and then look all the way to the far right (pan the
camera) to find a treasure chest. Pan left again and tap the bridge to
advance. 


=========================
The Long Bridge - Enemy 5
=========================
Keep an eye out for gold bags in the opening cutscene, and then get ready to 
whoop.

Just use the techniques you've learned from the tutorials to win. After the
battle, you can either tap the staircase or the big door. Grab any gold you 
see, and tap the big door (if you tapped the staircase, skip to enemy 7).


==================================
Post-Bridge Big Door (T) - Enemy 6
==================================
You'll have to fight another huge enemy here (either a troll or golem). After
you beat him, pan left to collect the treasure chest. You'll again have the
choice between the door and staircase. Choose the staircase (if you chose the
door, skip to enemy 9).


=======================
The Staircase - Enemy 7
=======================
This battle is pretty easy. Just fight your way to the top of the stairs and
send the enemy to his doom. Collect any gold you see, and tap the balcony
(pan up and to the right). During the following cutscene, there is usually
gold you can collect.


=======================
Balcony 2 (T) - Enemy 8
=======================
On this balcony, there is a big door, and a chest guarded by an enemy. 
Grab the gold outside the balcony edge, and tap the enemy to fight him.
After you beat him, you'll automatically collect the chest. Tap the big
door to advance to the elevator room.


==========================
The Elevator (T) - Enemy 9
==========================
You'll have to fight another large enemy here (either a troll or golem).
Tap the pit to summon the elevator and the enemy. After you beat him, tap
the treasure chest to the right of the elevator to collect it. Now tap 
the elevator.


==========================
The Throne Room - Enemy 10
==========================
Does this cutscene look familiar? It should, looks like you've made it back
to the God King. During the cutscene, grab any gold you see.

Approach The Dark Knight (no, not Batman), and teach him a lesson. If you 
can, save your magic and super for the God King himself. Just dodge
plenty, and you should be able to hack him to pieces.


================================
The God King (T) [W1] - Enemy 11
================================
Before fighting the God King, use a potion on yourself and tap the treasure
chest in front of you. The God King will be much harder than anything you've
previously fought, so prepare to get whooped.

Start the battle with the God King. *Important - If you see that you are 
about to lose, quickly tap the pause button and restart the battle*

If you manage to take about 1/3 of the God King's life away, he'll knock 
your sword out of your hand and offers you the Darth Vader choice - to turn
to the dark side and join him (he even holds up his fist in defiance, Darth 
Vader style). If you havn't done it before, choose to join him. You'll see 
a nice little cutscene, and then the credits will roll. After the credits, 
you'll be back in front of the God King again, and you can start the battle
over. 

This time, when you get to the choice, choose to grab your sword instead. 
Fight until you take away another 1/3 of his life, and he'll knock you into
the open area where you fought The Dark Knight. This is the last portion of
the battle, so give it all you've got. Use up your magic and your super if
you haven't done so already, and use up the rest of your blocks. If you're
lucky, you'll be able to beat him and get the true ending (although he is 
very difficult the first time through). 

If you beat him, you'll get a TON of XP, Gold, and sometimes super expensive
items (I once got Helio Armor for killing him). If you lose, you go back to
the beginning of the castle in the next bloodline. Each subsequent bloodline
has more difficult enemies, but also more valuable treasures. You should be 
able to master every item by bloodline 15 or 16 if you always swap out your
mastered items with non-mastered ones.

I did not beat him on my first bloodline through, so don't worry if you lose.
I didn't beat the God King until bloodline 3. 

**Note that the God King starts at level 50, and then grows up 50 levels each
time you beat him. Thus, he will stay at level 50 until you are strong enough
to beat him, at which point he will be level 100 on the next playthrough, etc.

Easy Gold

To earn massive amounts of gold in a relatively short period of time, use 
the following formula:

1. (optional) Get to bloodline 11 or 12; this ensures the money drops are 
   already relatively big to begin with.

2. Equip the "Odin's Wisdom" or "Legion" helm; this will give you the Gold+++ 
   bonus

3. Fight your way to the Dark Knight, collecting every gold sack and treasure
   along the way.

4. Sell any mastered items or excess treasure you've collected. (Don't sell
   the final item in each category, though, even if you've mastered it)

5. LOSE to The Dark Knight, and select "Save and Restart Castle"

6. Repeat until desired level of gold is acquired

This will get easier and faster, until you can get through the castle in about
10 minutes, collecting 50,000 - 100,000 gold along the way each time.


===================================
Interrupt Enemy at Critical Moments
===================================
Save your super and magic attacks for when you want to interrupt the enemy. 
Using either one will stop the enemy in his tracks, no matter what he his doing
(even if he is inches from chopping your head off).

Note that you must finish drawing the symbol in order for the interruption to
take place. Simply pressing the magic button will not interrupt.


=========================
Pause at Critical Moments
=========================
If you have trouble predicting which way to dodge, pause the game as the enemy 
starts his attack so you can think it through before unpausing.


===============================
Use Fast Forward to Level Grind
===============================
Press the ">>" in the lower right corner during cutscenes to speed up the game. 
Equip a helm or armor that gives you XP+ or better, and use the same formula as 
"easy gold" to quickly master items.
