Gameloft announces Gang$tar West Coast Hustle

Gameloft has today announced the development of its new 3D game for the iPhone and iPod Touch - Gang$tar West Coast Hustle.

The game which will be available at the end of summer, includes a selection of exciting features:

- The first iPhone game - in the crime sim genre, that displays a high level of graphics: a full-3D reconstruction of an entire city with detailed buildings, beautiful landscapes and impressive cars that animate and take crash damage

- Drive for miles in massive, open-ended environments and feel free to complete missions at your own pace

- Explore the city, shoot and fight, steal vehicles, kill your enemies, and drive or walk anywhere

- Go from rags to riches by connecting with relatives and helping out their gang. Grow in wealth and power until you live the Golden Life. But beware of the police!

- Drive a variety of vehicles easily thanks to touch controls or the accelerometer (it’s up to you), and aim at a target simply by touching - Shooting sequences are even more enjoyable thanks to the auto-aiming system

- Be a Gangstar your way by playing the game whilst listening to your favorite radio station (hip-hop, rap, reggae, electro, Californian punk rock, etc), or your own music stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch!
