Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories now available for Android devices
After launching on iOS back in late December, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is now available for Android devices as well.

Originally launched for the PlayStation Portable back in 2005, GTA: Liberty City Stories has made a comeback on mobile platforms with numerous enhancements that bring the game up to par with previous mobile GTA titles. 

In GTA: Liberty City Stories users play the role of Toni Cipriani, a member of the Leone crime family, freshly returned from prison, where he spent time for killing a man. 

Throughout the game, Toni struggles to place the Leoni family back in control of Liberty City, which is being destroyed by corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking, and union strikes. That's just the plot, one that you can choose to follow whenever you want, but the open world system that GTA pioneered leaves plenty of room for raising mayhem on the Liberty City streets just for fun.

Among the enhancements brought in the iOS and Android version, Rockstar highlights higher-resolution textures and graphics, real-time lighting and shadows, and a better draw distance, controls which are optimized for touchscreen devices, as well as support for a physical controller.

One neat feature that Rockstar has baked into the game is the ability to sync up save games across platforms. This way, you can do some missions at home on the PS 2 or PS 3, and then continue from where you left off on your iOS/Android device when on the go. 


The game is currently available in both the iTunes Store and the Play Store at the promotional price of $3.99, which represents a 40% discount compared to the usual retail price.
