Gangstar: West Coast Hustle HD Free for Today Only
Pocket Gamer reports that Gameloft is giving away the excellent West Coast Hustle HD iPad game for just one day only today, as part of its Twitter Advent Calendar promotion that has been running throughout December. The game, which is normally priced at £2.99/$4.99, is Gameloft’s answer to the Grand Theft Auto series, featuring a full-3D reconstruction of an entire city with detailed buildings, beautiful landscapes and impressive cars that animate and take crash damage. Players can drive for miles in the massive, open-ended environments and feel free to complete missions at their own pace. As with GTA, you can explore the city, shoot and fight, steal vehicles, kill your enemies and drive or walk anywhere. The auto-aiming system is designed to make shooting and fighting sequences even more enjoyable as you can aim at a target simply by touching the target icon on the screen. You drive by pressing virtual “pedals” on the screen and tilting the iPad to steer the vehicle, which I find works really well.
Features exclusive to the iPad edition include incredible graphics, detailed textures and spectacular lighting effects. All cars have also had their appearance optimised for the iPad, with high-definition modelling and richer textures.
