Just wanted to bring this one to everyone's attention. Unique gameplay idea: your finger gets attacked by the enemy.

First Impressions:

Nice art style with innovative gameplay

Instead of a sprite you play as your finger, with the "shadow" of your finger being the visual representation of your character. You keep your finger on the screen, and your "guy" moves with your finger.
The controls are swipe based gestures (Swipe down to attack, shake (move your finger back and forth quickly) to release the enemies grip, etc.). They take a little bit of getting used to but work well so far. You get various weapons along the way which feel nice to use. It is level based, and I'm having a lot of fun with it.

It's FREE and a tiny file size, so there's no reason not to try this if you're at all intrigued.

Now...the negatives...which are to be expected in a Free iOS game in 2014 -- there's full page ads between each level. There are some social sharing aspects. I haven't hit anything remotely close to a paywall, or anything too annoyingly freemium...but I'm only a 1/2 hour in or so.

With a trailer like this, how can you not try it?
