Max Payne for iPad Lands on the App Store with Retina Graphics

Max Payne, from Rockstar Games, has been ported to iOS and it’s now available in the New Zealand and Australian App Stores. That means that it should be coming to the US App Store around midnight tonight, so you’ll be able to download it right away at that point.

Max Payne for iOS is similar to the original PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox games, but Rockstar has added new high resolution textures and Retina graphics for the iPhone 4S and the third generation iPad.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, Max Payne stars a fugitive under cover cop who has been framed for murder, and who is being hunted by the cops and the mob. Payne is a cornered man with nothing left to lose, fighting to clear his name and uncover the truth about his slain family.

The game has newly configured touch screen controls, and support for Rockstar’s Social Club. Max Payne will also feature cheats, like Skip to Level, for those of you who have already finished Max Payne on other platforms.

You can download Max Payne from the App Store when it becomes available using this link. The app is universal, and will work with the iPhone 3GS and later, and all versions of the iPad.
