First released back in 2002 on the PS2, the follow up to the first ever 3D GTA has arrived on iOS and Android in form of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition.
From the decade of big hair, excess and pastel suits comes a story of one man’s rise to the top of the criminal pile. Vice City, a huge urban sprawl ranging from the beach to the swamps and the glitz to the ghetto, was one of the most varied, complete and alive digital cities ever created. Combining open-world gameplay with a character driven narrative, you arrive in a town brimming with delights and degradation and given the opportunity to take it over as you choose.
This classic sandbox adventure has been updated for mobile devices, meaning high-res graphics, optimized touch controls (tailored firing and targeting options) whose layout is fully customizable, iCloud game saves, support for Retina displays and more.
Grand Theft Auto III for iOS released a year ago to positive reviews and Vice City has also been well received on the App Store judging by the early reviews. The game is universal and costs $4.99, with compatibility going back as far as the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd gen (thankfully it’s iPhone 5 ready). If you were a fan of the GTA games from back in the day, here’s your chance to relive the crazy 80′s and dish out some pain to unsuspecting pedestrians on your iPhone and iPad.
