Shadow Bug is an upcoming mobile action adventure that's completely devoid of virtual controls.

You play as the eponymous Shadow Bug and tap on enemies to dash over and slash them with a pair of over-sized swords.

Timing looks to be important. Obstacles will block your path to each enemy so you'll have to choose your moment of attack wisely.

There's a three star (well, nunchuk) rating system so you have to keep an eye on the time and try to collect as many shiny orbs as you whizz through the levels.

The visuals are reminiscent of Badlands, with the characters and foreground shadowy-black against a hand-drawn background.

Shadow Bug will launch on iOS at some point in late 2015. We'll keep you posted.
