Gosh, back in the time when my friends were all crazy about Vice City on the IT class I just sat there and completed my Microsoft Word assignment. Now I'm playing this on iPad... don't even know how I should feel about that.

anyway I definitely like the game though. I wonder if there's a way to use cheat codes like the console version.

I have done pretty much all the missions (including asset missions) for all properties. Now I am stuck at that mission. Flying the skimmer isn't the same as flying a chopper for example. I start off good, but then half way to the destination, the skimmer loses altitude and crashes.
I will give it a few more tries I guess. In the mean time, I have sent a request for RS to update vice city with better flying mechanics.

Definitely get it! I don't know about iPod touch 4, but it plays great on my iPhone 5. You might struggle on some missions like I did, but after few tries, you should have no problem. You will get a lot of entertainment for your $5 trust me

I believe the cheat code programming is still there, you just need a Bluetooth keyboard to put them in.

Interestingly the gta_vc.set hack doesn't work anymore after the update, but it's stable on touch 4 now.

There an update right now,v.1.2,better compatible with iPod touch4gen,but only if you don't have OS 4.3,it's the minimum requirement,but the game doesn't open with OS 4.3,I'm frustrated,I cant play for that,2 updates,but nothing,support ROCKSTAR say that GTA vice city was designed for iOS 6 or later,they not tested on OS 4.3,but it's compatible with!
