Rockstar has kept it’s word. As of today, Max Payne Mobile for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch download is available in the iTunes App Store. The game development studio had promised that it will release the iOS port of it’s popular game on April 12, and so it has. Even if you aren’t an ardent mobile gamer, I recommend you get this game because it is simply sensational.
Almost everyone familiar with modern day pop culture is accustomed to Max Payne in one way or the other. The game has been a huge hit on PC and conventional gaming consoles. Hollywood has also made a movie on Max Payne. Though if you don’t have the slightest idea of who Max Payne is and why the iOS gaming community is so happy that this game is finally out, allow me to explain.
Max Payne, an imaginary character of course, is a fugitive undercover cop who has been framed for murder of his wife and child. His family by actually murdered by junkies who were high on a new drug, a drug he was working to get off the streets as an agent of Drug Enforcement Agency. Max is being hunted by cops as well as the mob and has no place to go. He’s basically in a war that he thinks he might not win at all. The story of this game revolves around Max’s quest to clear his name and uncover the truth behind the murder of his family, though in between there are many twists and turns in the plot.
Android users shouldn’t feel left out. It’s not known why releases for Android are always done after iOS but Rockstar has promised that it will make Max Payne Mobile available for Android devices around the globe on April 26. I’m quite sure that Android users are also anxiously awaiting the release of this game as well.
