Car Jack Streets - GTA game coming to iPhone!

Just saw this news over on Pocket Gamer and like wow, this is the type of game I'm desperate for on iPhone! I *loved* the original retro GTA games ;-)

Haven't played the mobile version but the review on Pocket Gamer sounds promising and if the developer can add 3D buildings, objects and vehicles this could be awesome...

Not due for release until next year tho

I loved the original GTA games, and it might just work so long as they get the conrol right. Fingers crossed.

Tag checking in!

Yeah the cats out of the bag! We're hard at work on our critically acclaimed action/driving mobile game Car Jack Streets and pumping it up ready for an iPhone release in the new year.

The game is selling like hot cakes on mobile across Europe and will be in North America on all the major operators February/March. We expect to have the iPhone version out shortly afterwards.

With Car Jack we went back to the core things that made the original GTA games so enjoyable - great car handling, a huge variety of vehicles, big open city environment, focus on area effect weapons (no point punching someone when your character is 16 pixels wide!) and non-linear game-play. We did all this and then added real time game-play and a few other new ideas into the mix to make sure its really playable in 10-15 minute chunks but also can be played for hours at a time if thats your thing.

Can't say too much about the iPhone version other than it will feature a 3D engine (still top down viewpoint) and a number of new features we didn't have time/resource to get into the mobile game. I'll make sure we release more details to Touch Arcade as things progress!

In the meantime if anyone wants to suggest features they'd like us to include that would be cool.

Oh and look out for forum regulars Trent and Armbruster starring in one of our next releases in a couple of weeks time

Hello Paul- nice to hear from you.

"look out for forum regulars Trent and Armbruster starring in one of our next releases"

What's that one called- Laurel & Hardy? (JOKE!!!)

About your game, could you tell us how you plan to implement the control scheme?
