A preview from IGN gives us a good impression of what to expect from Scream 4 on iPad and iPhone. You play as the masked Ghostface, with the aim of killing all the people in each of the game's four self-contained maps.
Although that sounds a uniquely grim setup, this isn’t the first game to allow you to be the killer in a video game movie tie in – that honour goes to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on the Atari 2600, way back in 1983. Admittedly, Scream 4's graphics are a little better.
To target a victim you simply get close enough to tap on them and then drag your finger along a line on the screen to unleash a knife attack.
The IGN preview claims that these controls are solid enough, but the game itself is a little too repetitive, not allowing you to pull off any attack that doesn't involve the knife.
Scream 4 will be released alongside the movie on April the 14th in the US and on the 15th for the UK. A price for the game has yet to be announced.
