Looking like it's been inspired by Platinum Games' Wii black and white and bloody chainsaw action brawler MadWorld comes Cut Him Up! from Iskandar Inc.

In simple terms, it's a 2D sidescrolling game, in which you have to fight your way through the mysterious Ward B by obliterating saw-wielding masked surgeons, heavyduty guards and failed mutant experiments by putting off kick and punch combos by tapping A and B buttons.

That's going to hurt

Each successful attack splats the screen with lashing of the sticky red stuff and SinCity-style action exclamations, while you can shatter your enemies into tiny pieces too.

Pills and adrenaline shots act as your power ups - until you get your hands on the chainsaw of course.

As well as the main Story mode, you can endure endless violence in the Survival mode, while highscores and achievements are handled by the OpenFeint social network.

Cut Him Up! is due for release soon, priced 99c, €0.79 or 59p.

You can see how it plays in the following video.
