Joe Danger Touch, an all new Joe Danger game built for iPad and iPhone, will be released this year, Hello Games has announced.

"The whole thing has been built from the ground up for touching screens with your lovely little fingers," explained Hello Games managing director Sean Murray. "You can swipe Joe to pop a wheelie, or flick barriers out of the way, tap to jump and hold to crouch. Waggle to fight sharks!

"It's a been a super secret spare time project for us here. Mainly it's been me, playing about with my iPhone, together with this lovely man, Stevie Burgess. He used to work at Frontier and created LostWinds. We're best buds and we've finally gotten to make something together."

There's no word on a firm release date, but it will hit the App Store this year.
