Church of the battered flayed saints

Product: The Gods: Rebellion
Developer: Calvi Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Action, Adventure
Building a solid brawler is tough on a touchscreen device. There's a lack of precision inherent in the control mechanism that means, sooner or later, you're going to miss a vital attack, or swing your weapon when you meant to dodge out of the way.
The Gods: Rebellion doesn't fix those problems entirely, and could easily go further than it does, but it still manages to be one of the most enthralling, brutal, and entertaining action games that App Store money can buy.
Gods of warring
The game takes plenty of cues from God of War, moving the fantastical storyline from ancient Greece to ancient China. There are demons to kill, wrongs to right, and an enslaved population to free.
It's simple and brutish, but there's a lot of violent fun to be had in The Gods: Rebellion, and the combo system makes each crunching blow that bit more satisfying
