Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas hits Android and Amazon Kindle devices

Fans of the Rockstar Grand Theft Auto series were excited last month when the game landed on the iOS platform. That meant that the game was available for iPhone and iPad gamers. The announcement that the game was available for the Apple devices left Android users in the cold. The Android version was originally expected to launch alongside the iOS version.

Good news has surfaced today with Rockstar Games announcing that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is now available for select devices on the Android platform. The game is also available for gamers on the Amazon Kindle tablet line.

GTA: San Andreas has a large open world with three cities for gamers to explore. The cities include Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas. The mobile game has improved graphics and promises over 70 hours of game play. Rockstar also tuned the mobile version of the game specifically to run well on portable gadgets.

The graphics are re-mastered with new lighting enhancements, an improved color pallet, and improved character models. The game also offers mobile gamers aiming options including auto-aim, free-aim, and touch targeting. Physical controllers are also supported. San Andreas is available on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore for $6.99. Rockstar also notes that the game will come soon to Windows mobile devices.
