Capoeira takes the footloose fighting style mobile

With the World Cup kicking off today (4pm – bagsie the comfy sofa) it's perhaps fitting that a distinct Brazilian theme seems to be emerging. Yesterday the home of the footie world champions gave us Total Control, Ronaldinho's first solo mobile game, and today that's been followed up by more smooth moves in Capoeira from Kato games.

The game enables you to blend art and acrobatics using hand-based dexterity alone. But this is definitely no 'one-thumb' game – it requires increasingly complex button combinations to pull off moves such as the 'martel', 'meia lua' and 'queixada' on screen en route to becoming the chief 'capoeirista'.

The developer Kato games also promises fluid animations against some suitably inspiring scenery – including the Amazon, Corcovado and streets of Salvador – plus an energetic 'batacuda' backing track.

There's no firm UK release date as yet, but we'd expect to see it samba-ing onto your cell in the next month or two.
