Need an adrenaline rush in the back of the bus? Look no further than Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition, now available for your iPhone, iPad or Android device.
Grand Theft Auto III is essentially the classic game you remember, but optimized for iPhone and Android touchscreens. Once the highlight of the PlayStation 2’s graphic capabilities, Liberty City looks exactly how you remembered it—except now it fits in the palm of your hand. The only real difference is that the PlayStation controller has been replaced with on-screen touch controls, which, according to early reviews, are very intuitive.
After downloading the game for $4.99, you’ll instantly be transported back to 2001, when a massive 3D city you could explore in a video game was truly a revelation. You’ll remember how fun it was to jack an ice cream truck, cruise around town, flip through the game’s hilarious radio stations, crash the truck and then start all over again with another vehicle. Although the game offers plenty of intense missions, Grand Theft Auto is always great for a few minutes of blowing off steam and trying things you’d never do in real life.
At less than $5, Grand Theft Auto III is difficult to ignore. Whether you have fond memories of destroying Liberty City a decade ago or you’re new to the franchise, you won’t be disappointed by rediscovering a classic in the Apple App Store or Android Market today.
