You may have met Octodad before. He's orange, a bit slimy (in a physical sense, we're not one to judge characters), and he has been out on console and PC since January 2014.

But now he's diving into the world of mobile. Octodad: Dadliest Catch sees you battle deliberately dodgy controls as you guide an octopus under cover as a man through his daily life.

It's a wonderfully ridiculous premise, but does it translate well onto touchscreens?

Watch our preview above to find out.

Octodad launches on iOS on October 29th and Android on November 4th.
