Best Reason To Go to the Library (Other Than the Books): 'God of Blades'

Inspired by Seventies pulp fantasy novels, God of Blades allows iPhone and iPad owners to step into Frazetta-esque landscapes, wield mythical swords, and slash through a steady stream of armed baddies. The creators at White Whale Games repay the inspiration they took from marginalized literature by incentivizing visits to an increasingly marginalized place, the library. Enable the game's Loreseeker function, and visits to your local book repository are rewarded with storied weapons and, if you can tear yourself away from the action, an actual library book to borrow.
