Touch of Death is a frantic rhythm action game released for phones and tablets. Spurred into action by the death of a friend and mentor, the player takes on the mantle of the unnamed protagonist on a bloody quest for honor and vengeance. Using the secret and deadly Touch of Death, the players can make their enemies' hearts burst in their chests. The game sits somewhere between Fruit Ninja, Guitar Hero and Temple Run. Hounded by a constantly escalating timer, the player has to quickly and correctly perform the shown gestures to claim the lives of his foes before they claim his.
Touch of Death is the second project for Sharkbomb Studios. It started life as HeartAttack during the Global Game Jame 2013. It was then refined and improved and finally released for tablets in July 2013. After a complete overhaul and new graphics version 2.0 was released for all mobile devices in December 2013.
