Rockstar Games came into the limelight of the gaming arena with two games, namely the Grand theft Auto or the GTA and Max Payne.

The price of the game has been fixed at $2.99 as of now and is available at the Google Play Store for android enabled smart phone users and at the Apple iTunes store for the iOS based devices.
Max Payne is an action based Role Playing Game where the player plays the role of the central character, that of Max Payne. Max Payne is a detective with the police department of New York City. His life takes a sharp turn after his wife and child are brutally killed in an invasion of his home which he fails to prevent. In addition, he is also held responsible for the murder of Alex, his partner. Max now has to run away from the federal officers while also trying to find out the perpetrators who destroyed his personal life. He is a one man army who sets out to seek revenge for the killing of his daughter and wife.
The Max Payne game was first introduced in 2001 and it created quite a stir in the action gaming genre of the third person shooting. Since then, many versions of the said game have been introduced. With the recent introduction of the game for the Android version, players can now enjoy the game with better controls and effects. The game has been introduced in different languages including English, Italian, German, French, Russian, Spanish and Japanese.
The game is quite interesting to play on the android enabled smart phones having touch screens. Unlike the belief that touch-screens can be difficult to play such games Rockstar Games have provided easy controls on the touch screen. The graphics of the game are very good. The question of whether to buy the game or not depends on the smartphone owner and his/her liking for Role playing action games. In addition, you would have to check the compatibility of your phone with that of the game specifications.
