Update: If you're looking for a blood and gory version of Blood & Glory, the unrated version just hit the Market. More blood, more glory. Hit the link below to grab it.

Blood? Check. Glory? Check. An "Infinity Blade"-like experience on Android? Glu Mobile's new game "Blood & Glory" has you covered. Hack, slash, dodge, use special attacks and combos, wipe the blood off your screen, then rinse and repeat as you participate in a series of medieval tournaments.

Graphics and visual effects were among Infinity Blade's best selling points, and Blood & Glory definitely fill its shoes in that department - both the physics and the visuals are stunning. Check out the video below if you don't believe me:

The 'Blood & Glory' tutorial does a great job of explaining the various techniques necessary to hack your way to victory in this great looking game. The ability to dodge attacks might be your best friend, though the parry is most effective once you master the timing and angle necessary to render your foe defenseless. In no time, you will learn the combo maneuvers and special attacks to win your bouts.

    Played it last night, it's very good.

  • Todd

    Hot dang, Not sure why they aren't charging a few bucks for this. Good tip!

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      In-app purchases.

      • AshR

        Yeah.. but they have the Buying confirmation toggle defaulted to OFF! If you are not careful, you will end up buying in-app without even knowing!

        • AshR

          Ok, I got that wrong - the confirmation toggle is not entirely for in-app purchases.

      • jonathan3579

        Yes and it sucks! I loathe in-app purchases to the core. I'd much rather pay an [initial] premium price rather than this method.

  • Letroy

    This does look nice, but not as good as Infinity Blade imho :\

  • Brad

    Is this only for tegra devices or something, it says incompatible with my Galaxy S :(

    • http://www.innews.dk Erroneus

      Nope, compatible with my HTC Desire, which is an older phone then the Galaxy S.

    • Tkun

      It works on my Samsung Fascinate, although it can be a bit laggy at times.

    Game is decent. Graphics are great, and so is the sound. The big problem is progression.

    Progression in the game somewhat forces you to spend money as rewards are heavily penalized for repeating future battles. So while going through the first tournament may net you good experience and cash, repeating it drops it to a fraction of what it was.

    • http://www.cravingtech.com Michael Aulia @CravingTech.com

      Yeah. It's great but definitely like you said, the progression

      Not to mention you don't earn cash that much and there will come to a point when you can't progress anymore (have to wait for more contents)

      But this game definitely has the potentials!

  • jigsaw

    but this game is incompatible on my galaxy s !!why???????????????????that sucks!!!!
    is there any other way to install this game on my phone !!!!!!!please do tell me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      It's likely because the game is too big. The Galaxy S has a big flaw in that it only has a 30 MB protected app cache. So any app from the market will very 30MB will not download.

      If it's on GetJar you should be able to install it from there as it doesn't use the protected cache.

  • AshR

    Awesome game.. Love it.. Evo 3D

  • Darkseider

    Doesn't work at all on the Asus Transformer. It loads and the moment it goes to download its' resource files for the first time it force closes. Kind of disappointing. Submitted the bug report and hoping it gets addressed.
