If you're craving more white doves and melodramatic close-ups in your games, then John Woo is probably the man you want helming the action. Luckily for you, his new game Bloodstroke just landed on App Stores globally, and is running towards your mobile devices with both barrels blazing.

Taking control of private security specialist Mai Lee, you must swipe and tap your way through hordes of thugs as you search for the person that betrayed you. Penned by the legendary director himself, the game promises to deliver lots of gore and over-the-top violence.

With its striking black and white comic style, the only other colour Bloodstroke will be offering is red – lots of red – as Mai Lee's targets spurt, spray, and ooze the last of their life blood all over your screen.

As Woo's second game, it will be interesting to see how it differs from previous interactive effort Stranglehold, and how his style translates into a touchscreen-powered top-down shooter.

Bloodstroke is out on the App Store right now priced at £1.99 / $2.99.
