Grand Theft Auto III released for iOS and Android

GTA3-1_2076858b To mark the game's 10th anniversary, Rockstar games has released a version of the game for Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and for certain Android phones and tablets.

The game, which costs £2.99 is the complete console version of the title, which was a huge hit when it was released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2001.

GTA III was a groundbreaking example of so-called 'open world' games, which allow the player to explore the environment and pick and choose their path through the game. It built on the success of a franchise that began in 1997 on the original PlayStation and on the Game Boy Colour.

Rockstar says that the mobile version of the game has better graphics than the original console version, as well as new auto-save and mission replay features.

The game was followed by several prequels, including the 1980s-set Vice City and the 1990s-based San Andreas. A full sequel, Grand Theft Auto IV, was released in 2008 and, at the time, was the UK's fastest-selling video game ever. GTA IV overhauled the game engine and adopted a more realistic look and feel.

In October, Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto V and released a trailer for the game a month later. No release date has yet been given for the title but it is expected to be released in late 2012 or early 2013.

GTA III is not the first version of the game to be made available for Apple's iOS platform. GTA: Chinatown Wars was released in 2009. It is the first entry in the series to be released for Android devices, however.
