If you always thought that the swipey-slashy controls of Fruit Ninja would lend themselves perfectly to something more adventurous than just cutting watermelons in half, then Severed is probably the game you've been waiting for. Developed by DrinkBox Studios, the team responsible for 2013's Mexican folklore-themed Guacamelee, Severed is an old-school dungeon crawler with deeply satisfying swipe-based swordplay that sees you exploring a beautifully realized world, battling nightmarish creatures and collecting the severed bits of your foes. Although originally designed for PlayStation Vita, the game is perfectly suited for iOS. Its stunning, incredibly imaginative art style looks particularly striking on iPad.
