It's certainly not the experience Metal Gear Solid fans are probably expecting, but Metal Gear Solid Touch released today on the iTunes App Store for $7.99 on iPhone and iPod Touch. MGS Touch covers the events of MGS4, with players assuming the role of Solid Old Snake, in what amounts to a screen-tapping shooting gallery.

The game features 20 levels and has the cloned protagonist fighting all the characters you've come to know from MGS4 -- minus the 45-minute cutscenes. We should have our review of the app up soon.
