[Updated] Grand Theft Auto 3: 10th Anniversary Edition hits iOS and Android worldwide

Grand Theft Auto 3, a tenth anniversary edition of Rockstar's infamous crime epic, is now available worldwide.

The iPhone and iPad version is out now. There are special censored versions in more prudish countries like Germany and Australia.

The game is also available on Android. Hit up the Marketplace, here.

"Worst Place in America"

This birthday remake features the entire PlayStation 2 game, including a full-on story mode set in New York spoof Liberty City. You play as a mute crim who works his way through a dark and seedy underworld, doing driving and shooting missions for mob bosses.

The 462MB app boasts "updated graphics, character and vehicle models", and custom controls that are fit for touchscreen devices. This essentially boils down to a sea of virtual buttons, spread across the screen.

A CNET preview reveals that this new version also features the ability to instantly retry a mission if you fail, and auto-saving - two things missing from the 2001 release.


The iOS version is supported on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, the fourth generation iPod Touch, iPad and iPad 2.

The Android edition is available for the HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R and T-Mobile G2x phones, and the Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S and Toshiba Thrive tablets.

A spokesman for the Rockstar has confirmed that this 10th Anniversary Edition game will not support the hot-selling Samsung Galaxy S II, despite previously promising support for the popular phone.

Cash money

Grand Theft Auto 3: 10th Anniversary Edition costs £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99 on iPhone. The Android version will set you back £3.21.
