John Woo has a new iOS app in the works, developed by Moon Shark and set to be published by Chillingo, called Bloodstroke. In it, iDevice owners are placed in an “on-the-rails” action environment, and the application itself features an attractive black and white graphic style and an immersive storyline.

In a recent quotation, Bloodstroke’s developer explains:

The setting is located in Asia.

You take the role of a bodyguard, agent codenamed LOTUS, who is involved in an exciting story.

The main task in the levels is to protect your employer.

The cutscenes are kept exactly as the game in a special black and white graphic style, colors are rarely used but then consciously.

Bloodstroke is set to feature a total of 30 levels, an “arena” mode of gameplay, numerous enemies and weapons, melee attacks, and Game Center-powered achievements. The story has been written by famed director and screenwriter John Woo.

Further features include:

  • Controls: Virtual joystick on the left side of the screen, and buttons on the right side.
  • Upgrades: During the game you have the opportunity to upgrade your character extensively.
  • Weapons: In addition to swords you have several firearms available.
