temp-image_14_9Last week I posted about a mysterious video of an upcoming iPhone game. Forum members played a bit of a guessing game as we all speculated what the game would be about. Some were sure it was a trailer for Cartel, an MMO-type game currently in beta, others through some internet detective work traced the site back to Gameloft and hoped that we were looking at an upcoming Grand Theft Auto styled game.

Those of you who thought we were watching a trailer for Gangstar were correct. We just got some news and exclusive screenshots of what Gameloft has in store for us, and it sounds like a pretty ambitious title for the App Store.

Gangstar: West Coast Hustle is slated to be the first iPhone full-3D open-ended crime sandbox game. Players will be immersed in L.A. gang life and able to explore an entire city filled with buildings, cars to steal or crash in to, and missions that can either be completed or ignored as you drive around wreaking havoc.

temp-image_14_6Driving controls are said to be intuitive, with both accelerometer and touch controls. The gun fights you will undoubtedly find yourself in are controlled via a touch auto-aiming system and Gangstar comes loaded with several radio station options as well as the ability to play your own tracks.

Also included is some type of rags to riches progression system, where you will connect with people in the city, increase the strength of your gang, and generally grow in wealth and power. Naturally, this all needs to be accomplished while avoiding the police.

Meanwhile, German iPhone site iFUN.de just attended a semi-public preview of the game and posted this brief gameplay video:

The game will, of course, support all iPod Touch and iPhone models and is expected to be available "by the end of summer".

    This looks pretty tight. I hope it doesn't cost more than $10. I wonder how deep the gameplay goes and how big of a download it will be. I want Myst but I don't have any room for it on my iPhone!

    They won't get sued since there's a lot of games that are like gta. You could create a rts game and not get sued, you could create a clone (not exactly a clone) like need for speed and not get sued, you could create other games and not get sued, but there is one that did get sued and that is the maker of iGangster (i think it was this company). Mafia Wars/ iMafia = Zynga

    High hopes for this game though. Terminator Salvation was fantastic.

    I would say don't get your hopes up and prepare for one empty world.
    I'm not talking only about few passers-by but also buildings, cars etc.
    It's going to be one empty city...
    Rockstar had a long development time for PSP and they also had to do some serious programming trickery to make it work.
    They just can't pull it off on all models and in such a tiny development time.
    If this was on iPhone 3gs and with a year of development than I would get excited and I would probably expect it to be better than PSP but now it's a whole other story.
    I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    I agree that games that deserve it should cost more. But that doesn't mean it should cost 30-40 dollars. This would have the exact opposite effect.
    And let's not forget that games cost that much because Sony, and nintendo get a huge chunk of that money, through sdk's, royalties for printing and all sorts of hidden costs.
    The 70% deal for the developer, and the non existent sdk cost makes these low prices possible.
    And they should stay that way if we want the platform to evolve.
    I'm not talking about 1 dollar games but 10-12 bucks should be the maximum even for a high profile game.
    And so far the high profile games on the iphone don't really deserve that huge (for the platform) price tag.

    Firstly, to the dude above who said it looks better than GTA on PSP... not even close. The textures, draw distance and frame rate was much better on GTA.

    Secondly, the controls will suck big time. It's on iPod/iPhone afterall...

    Thirdly, it won't have depth, replayability or story like GTA.

    But hey, the devs know all this and they also know that it won't matter because the first week of sales will make them millionaires once again.

    @ dimitris.

    I think you prolly be right. The develop time is I think too short to make a living city so indeed, don't get your hopes to high. Rockstar needed a lot more time so that say's it all.

    Somehow, I don't like gameloft that much. It's just that they release to many games to soon wich have barely any support after (updates etc). I think that games are nothing more like products for them since every game use somewhat the same engine. Now don´t get me wrong by saying that´s particurally a bad thing, but I feel they are just like EA.

    in the other hand if u think about business marketing, if the game was 10 bucks then everyone would bloody buy it, i would, even though my iphone is PWned* and even if i could get the game free, but if u make it 40bucks, then i'm pritty sure the ratio of marketing on 10 bucks comparing to 40 bucks, the buyers would be 1: <4, therefore more money if GL sold the game for 10 bucks.

    I still think iphone wel atleast iphone 3GS is capable of runnning VCS so I think this could be better
    Still good that someone is trying atleast

  • sufy

    Your right there Dylan. It looks bad for an iphone. The cars look like cardboard and when a car crashes it doesn't even look like it's crashed. iphone can do much better.

    The quality is a tradeoff of a sandbox style game.
    Seriously though this is a game that should only be run on 3gs.
    The other versions just can't cut it.
    Open worlds need good graphics card and the previous iphone and ipod touch even though capable isn't as powerful as it should, to run this game.

    "payback and carjack streets are rubbish next to this one…"

    no, they're just rubbish.

    "MY LIL SIS MADE ALL THE CHARACTERS ON THIS GAME! OHHH YEAAAAHHH!"

    by your spelling, grammar and excitement/enthusiasm, we assume you are about 10 years old so little sister must be about 6!

    Am I the only one who is suspicious? The engine looks a little bit too much like GTA 3. Notice the steering, the camera and the movement of the characters. Its all JUST like gta 3. No big hoax I hope, becouse the promotion is pretty serious....But still...

  • spamboy

    So, could they be sued for actually emulating parts of Rockstar's games?

    Because most of the beach scenes look like they were taken straight out of the southern coast of Los Santos in GTA: San Andreas. This smells fishy... and it's not just the beach setting... /end lame joke

  • ShadowsFall

    It's not a hoax, emu's are slow. It takes a lot of modding to make the framerate work, besides... Gameloft could've taken care of it already, since it's going to be published by them. I really didn't know they made a grand theft auto 3 o_o, unless you mean GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City.

    • Kam

      please tell me you are joking.

      "i really didnt know they made a grand theft auto 3".

      umm...it was THE VERY FIRST ONE THAT WAS IN FULL 3d!?!?!

      it was KIND OF a big deal?!?!

      where have you been living?? utah???

    this looks great, better than Payback or Carjack Streets, but those were pretty good too. I hope the controls work and it has a good storyline and enough things to do after you beat the game. Can't wait for this one :D

    a lot of people are saying that this game is coming out so soon, and such a small development time that it cant be good. How do these people know when the development started, could've started ages ago and the game was just announced now

    Holy balls this looks impressive. As long as the framerate on the 3G is decent and there's more than an afternoon's worth of gameplay (*cough Castle of Magic *cough) I'll pick it up : )

    Aaaaahhh looks like Gta, looks similar to Gta..... but then is not a real Gta just a similar and for sure worst one. An empty world with typical story and missions to just be a Gta clon. Better wait for the real one from Rockstar

  • Em Finn

    GTA-Like?

    I believe you mean GTA-rip, with a lot of the physics and fun reduced.

    They didn't even bother to choose their own font for the freakin' tagline for crying out loud.

    Such a shame they wasted so much time and effort on something that'll be lawsuited out of existence as soon as they find a publisher/distributor dumb enough to get involved.

    I dont know what people are complaining about. It will be different enough to all of the GTA chapters (Stories included) to make it worthwhile in it's own right..

    Things like this are only going to put pressure on the big companies to get their act together and jump on board the ipod/phone platform, it can't be a bad thing!

    Thinking about it the few hardware advantages the ipod has over the PSP are ones that would work very favourably on open world games like this.
