To hold kill-thirsty, classical civilization enthusiasts over until the PSP'sGod of War Chains of Olympusdrops later this year, Sony has been kind enough to givecell phonegamers a chance to revel in the dismemberment with the exclusive God of War: Betrayal.

Chronologically, Betrayal bridges the gap between the first two God of War games - but don't go expecting a rousing narrative addition to those tales. However, many of the things you know and love from the PS2 versions do make the transition.

While not the 3D platformer many are familiar with, the mobile excursion retains the branching pathways and puzzle elementsdespite the 2D limitations. Scattered Gorgon Eyes extend yourhealth bar, as do Phoenix Feathers to your magic. The red orbs you collect from your fallen victimsarealso back, and can be put towards leveling up your skills and weapons for even more optimal ways to dole out death.
