Capcom has announced the release of Resident Evil: Degeneration for iPhone and iPod touch.

Based on the CG movie of the same name, Resident Evil: Degeneration features "high resolution" 3D graphics and "console-style" controls thanks to a virtual on-screen control pad.

The third-person survival horror shooter sees players exploring Harvardville Airport, rescuing survivors, solving puzzles and fighting off an army of undead. Players will need to use their in-game PDA to collect intel, manage their inventory and access maps.

Gameplay will also take advantage of each device's accelerometer, with players having to shake the iPhone/iPod to shake off zombies, while tilting the device back will reload the selected weapon.

Capcom stated: "The Resident Evil: Degeneration game is the first step for Capcom in developing original games featuring cutting-edge technological advances for the iPhone and iPod touch."

Resident Evil: Degeneration is out now on the App Store priced £3.99.
