In celebration of the recent release of Rockstar’s cinematic action-shooter, Max Payne 3, Rockstar
Games is proud to release Max Payne Mobile for Android, providing the full classic Max Payne
experience with new customizable controls, optimized and supported on a wide variety of Android
phones and tablets.

Originally published and developed by Rockstar Games and Remedy Entertainment in 2001, Max Payne
was a groundbreaking title that introduced the concept of Bullet Time® to videogames.

Using Bullet Time as its chief gameplay mechanic, Max Payne’s presentation and design pays homage to
the bullet ballet style of Hong-Kong action cinema. The game’s presentation included noir-inspired
graphic-novel cutscenes that, in addition to Max’s inner monologue, created a lead character that went
beyond the caricatures typical of action shooters at the time. Max’s complex storytelling and dark
atmosphere were unique concepts whose influence continues to this day.

Max Payne Mobile for Android offers a full suite of camera and aiming options tailored to many
different skill levels and preferences, providing addictive pick-up-and-play for casual players, while still

retaining the precision and unmistakable Max Payne feel that fans remember. Speed, aiming settings,
sensitivity and button layouts are customizable.

Rockstar Games has enhanced the original Max Payne in its complete form, adapting the classic title to
take full advantage of Android phones and tablets. The original PC version of the game has been
included in its entirety, with updated resolutions to run natively in a widescreen format, as well as high-
resolution textures.

In addition to the release of Max Payne 3, we’re thrilled to release Max Payne Mobile for fans to
experience the original and enjoy the latest chapter in the series’ history.
