Classic games Grand Theft Auto III, Sonic CD come to iOS, Android

Sonic CD and GTA III

Every day dozens of new games are released for mobile phones and tablets — but every now and again you don’t want a new game. What you want is to relive a truly great classic game that you first played on a Playstation or computer.

Recently two of those classic games found their way to iOS and Android.

The first is Sonic CD, a Sonic the Hedgehog title from the 90s. Originally developed for the Sega CD, the game has since been ported to the Plyastation 2, GameCube, and PC. Now it’s available for $1.99 in the Android Market and iTunes App Store.

Next up we’ve got Grand Theft Auto III – a title that changed the way many people think about video games on a number of levels. GTA III was released for the PS2 in 2001 as a game that let you solve missions by driving, fighting, and problem solving in Liberty City, a fictional place that’s detailed enough to be a character in the story.

The game also pushed the boundaries of violent and sexual conduct in a mainstream video game.

Now GTA III  is available for $4.99 from the App Store and Android Market.
