Sleek, modern games are enticing by their very nature. Still, I love the world of medievel castles, kings, queens and knights of old. Epic Citadel offers you special effects that amazingly replicate a real world of long ago. Make your way around a castle and its kingdom using slick controls. In Epic Citadel, you will explore the world from the circus bazaar to the bridge overlooking the river. Perhaps my favorite location though is the mysterious cathedral in the heart of town. Be dazzled by top-notch graphics. Here are just a few of the fantastic effects that went into making Epic Citadel the astounding eye-pleaser that takes your breath away:

- Amazing visuals: Graphics and special effects that immerse players in the kingdom’s grounds

- Bump offset mapping: Enhances the visual appearance of stone walls and rocks providing intricate textures

- Normal mapped architecture: Brings stunning detail to bricks and ground surfaces within the environment

Texture blending: Refines nuances on roads and terrain, making them rich and lifelike

- Global illumination: Realistic lighting and shadows

- Real time reflections and animation: reflections on objects such as the statue inside the cathedral and dynamic movements of trees and banners

I guarantee you have not seen such amazing, realistic visuals as appear in Epic Citadel. Simply tap the screen where you wish to move, or use the controls in the lower left and right corners of the screen. Drag your finger across the screen to look in different directions. What was exceptional to me were the swooping birds, the flapping flags along with moving shadows here and there. Epic Citadel is one iPhone and iPad game app that you really have to see to appreciate all its glory.
