Rock Star Games Celebrates Anniversary of GTA 3 by Going Mobile

Rock Star Games has just released a near-perfect remake of the Play Station 2 game Grand Theft Auto 3 for iOS.

Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, GTA 3 looks great on the iPad. The movement appears seamless and smooth. Players can partake in all the greatness that the PS2 version had, including punching out innocent ladies walking their dogs, stealing hoopties from gangsters and running over doughnut-eating cops.

The iOS app, available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch has improved graphics and touch-based virtual joysticks. The game includes an auto-save feature and mission retries.

GTA3 is available for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, iPad 1 and iPad 2 running iOS 4.3 and higher and costs just $4.99, Which is half the price of Rock Star Game’s previous Grand Theft Auto release, China Town.
