After nearly twelve years since Max Payne was released for the original Xbox and PlayStation 2, the third-person shooter series has made its way to two new platforms: iOS and Android. Max Payne Mobile has officially launched today in the U.S. App Store, bringing the gun-fighting, puzzle-solving action to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The game will launch for Android devices on April 26th.
Named the “PC Game of the Year” in 2001 by several gaming publications, Max Payne is a thrilling action-shooter that is based on Max Payne himself, a fugitive that lives on the edge as he is hunted by the cops and the mob. Max Payne Mobile by Rockstar Games is available for $2.99 from the App Store and requires iOS 4.2 or later.
A fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, hunted by cops and the mob, Max is a man with his back against the wall, fighting a battle he cannot hope to win. Max Payne is a relentless story-driven game about a man on the edge, fighting to clear his name while struggling to uncover the truth about his slain family amongst a myriad of plot-twists.
The groundbreaking original cinematic action-shooter, Max Payne introduced the concept of Bullet Time in video games. Through its stylish slow-motion gunplay combined with a dark and twisted story, Max Payne redefined the action-shooter genre.
