Metal Gear Solid Touch is a third-person shooter released on the iOS platform, which is the first mobile version of the cult Metal Gear series, launched in 1987 on 8-bit MSX computers and then developed (under the name Metal Gear Solid) on PlayStation family consoles. The title was developed for Konami by Kojima Productions studio, founded by the original creator of the entire Hideo series Kojima.

The plot of the game is set in the reality of the fourth full-fledged part of the Metal Gear Solid 4 series: Guns of the Patriots. While having fun, we play in the well-known cycle of the hero, who, as a result of genetic experiments, has grown older and now bears the nickname Old Snake. Individual missions take place in locations modelled on their console counterparts and boil down mainly to the elimination of new enemies, although in the course of the game there are also civilians (which we must not kill) and much more demanding bosses, known from Metal Gear Solid 4.

Compared to games from the main canon of the series, Metal Gear Solid Touch has been significantly simplified. In the game there are no stealth elements, and the whole game is turned into a rather static shooting with opponents, appearing in different parts of the screen. The players' task is to eliminate their enemies as quickly as possible using three types of weapons: a rifle, a sniper and a rocket launcher (which we receive occasionally in exchange for shooting down a green Kerotan frog). The key to success is to hide behind the cover when our enemies suspect an attack.

Despite the simplified gameplay, Metal Gear Solid Touch on the iOS platform boasts a good visuals that stand out from most similar mobile productions. It is worth noting that at the moment of the game's release only 3 episodes (divided into several smaller missions) were made available to players. Subsequent chapters of the game were added successively as the game was updated.
