Grand Theft Auto III smashes onto Android and Iphone

Ten years later and classic game hits handsets

CLASSIC PULL PEOPLE OUT OF CARS GAME Grand Theft Auto III has just baseball batted its way onto Iphones, Ipads and Android devices, ten years after it was first released.

The genre setting classic is much loved amongst gamers and took the top down view title into a much more realistic world and to a much more appreciative audience.

Now you can relive that feeling you first got when you were awarded a rocket launcher, or ran around desperately trying to shake off the cops while rival gangs took pot shots at you, playing it again on a smartphone.

The game is available on Android devices and Apple's Ipad and Iphone. It looks just as it did ten years ago, and although we have not tried it yet, it presumably makes good use of touch controls. Purists might like the idea of investing in a joystick. We'll be trying it out at some time soon, and will do a hands-on review.

In the meantime if you can part with a few quid - £3.23 for Android and £2.99 for Apple - this close to Christmas, and fancy whiling away your train journeys by punching, kicking and shooting people without getting into trouble, then this is the app release of the year for you. µ
