If you missed yesterday's Apple event, you may have also missed Gears of War and Unreal Engine developer Epic Games showing off its new first-person slasher for the iPhone and iPod touch, Project Sword. You shouldn't miss it this time.

While Project Sword appears to be a highly simplified combat experience, it is graphically very impressive for an iPhone game. iPhone and iPod touch owners who would like to see Epic's portable version of the Unreal Engine 3 in action can do so now by downloading the Epic Citadel tech demo.

Project Sword will be released via iTunes later this year.
