Rockstar Games has recently released a mobile version of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories."
The game is now available for iOS mobile device and can be purchased through the iTunes store.
According to the game's iTunes listing, it costs $8.99 and has a file size of 1.33GB. The game can only be played on the iPad Pro, iPad Mini 2/3/4, iPad Air and Air 2, iPad 4th Gen, iPod Touch 6th Gen and the iPhone 5 and 6 models.
The mobile game serves as an updated version of the original game that first came out in 2005 for Sony's handheld device, the PlayStation Portable. It then made its way to the PlayStation 2 in 2006 before arriving for the PlayStation 3 in 2013.
The re-released edition still follows the same story and gameplay experience as the original. But, as a mobile version, "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" for the iOS features a few tweaks and improvements.
One of these is the added support for touchscreen controls. It also has better graphics than the original and can run at 60 frames per second on newer iPhone and iPad devices. The mobile version also features support for cloud saves, physical controllers, custom soundtrack and native retina screen, NZ Gamer reported.
As noted by The Verge, "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" is a spin-off of "Grand Theft Auto 3." Like the original game, the mobile version still follows main character Toni Cipriani and takes place in the fictional Liberty City, which was patterned after New York City.
"Former trusted wise guy for the Leone family, Toni Cipriani returns home to Liberty City after spending time in hiding for killing a made man," the developers wrote in the game's description. "Now, the streets of Liberty City are in turmoil, as warring families vie for control and the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes."
"Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and even his own mother stand in the way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone family control," Rockstar Games added.
Currently, the mobile version of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" is only available for iOS devices. But, the developer noted that it is also working on and Android and Windows Phone editions of the game. However, it is not yet clear when these versions will come out.
