3363926639_07f53d6dd2jpgIn mid-March, Konami released Metal Gear Solid Touch [App Store] for the iPhone and iPod touch.  A departure from the style of the famed Playstation franchise, Metal Gear Solid Touch is a tap-shooter with impressive graphics but short-lived gameplay. We advised back in March that, for anyone other than fans of the franchise, the $7.99 asking price is hard to justify.

Well, now you can decide for yourselves.

Konami has just released Metal Gear Solid Touch Lite [link] through the App Store.  This free download presents the opening story as well as three Middle Eastern stage (the full game features 20) to give those on the fence a feel for the play experience. If Metal Gear Solid Touch seems remotely interesting to you, the lite version is probably worth a download.

See our gameplay video of the paid app:

    Im not a Metal Gear fan but decided to give this game a try nonetheless. at first pick up I was like this is all there is to it, but after playing it for a while i ended up enjoying it very much. Theres actually alot of strategy to it, and its very exciting. Yes its pretty hard and gets harder towards the end but i would see it was worth the price of admission.

    I have played through the lite version. It's a great game but there is no way I would pay £4.99 for it. hopefully we will see a reduction soon.

      Josh, Acid wasn't canon. That means nothing that happened in the game was real. (real, as in the sense of the actualy metal gear storyline. lol)
