The mobile version of GTA San Andreas is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch through the App Store. The game that is a complete port of the original console version is fully optimized for touch controls and features graphics that have been remastered to take full advantage of iPhone and iPad’s graphical capabilities. Rockstar announced the iOS release of the popular console game last month and it has delivered on its promise.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas features remastered graphics that have been made compatible with mobile devices. Rockstar has added lightning enhancements, improved character models and added an enriched color palette to make the original game even better. The graphics look even better on devices iPhone 5 or above as well as iPad 4th generation or above as the game displays dynamic detailed shadows and real-time environment reflections on these devices.
As we reported in our previous post about this game GTA San Andreas comes with full support for MFi or Made-for-iOS physical controllers allowing users to play with physical controls. It allows users to control full camera and movement using the dual analog stick controls. Apart from that it also features three different control schemes giving users control over how they want to display buttons.
The game is saved in the cloud through Rocktar Social Club Members and enables users to continue where they left across all of their iOS devices.
The mobile version of the game follows the same story line as the original version and has Carl Johnson or as he is popularly known CJ as its main character. It features 70 hours of gameplay.
Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.
Now, it’s the early 90’s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.
On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.
