The classic PC game Max Payne is set to arrive on the iOS platform next week, April 12th to be exact. Rockstar has announced that it will have the original version of Max Payne ready for iOS next week and it will be called Max Payne Mobile.
Max Payne is a third-person shooter in which the player assumes the role of its titular character, Max Payne. Almost all the gameplay involves bullet time-based gun-fights and levels are generally straightforward, occasionally incorporating platforming and puzzle-solving elements. The game's storyline is advanced by the player following Max's internal monologue as the character determines what his next steps should be. Several of the game's levels involve surrealistic nightmares and drug-related hallucinations of Payne.
Rockstar has an excellent reputation for releasing superb iOS ports of games. Last year it released the highly anticipated port of GTA III. The release certainly did not disappoint either in game play or with value for money. We expect the same for Max Payne and those of us who played the original game on PC or later on Xbox, PS2 and Mac can look forward to another great title coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; roll on April 12th!
