In June 2012, the company Rockstar Games unveiled Android-device users with a complete copy of the sensational 2001 third person shooter - Max Payne. Due to the fact that by the time the game was released on the PC most of the current Android-gamers only mastered elementary school desks, and that is Android-devices are better able than computers of ten years ago, the game was pretty decent and fully justified the expectations of even the most indiscreet .
The only difference in this game from its PC version is to manage (only because it was the touch), and that now the game supports HD-quality textures at a resolution of 1024x720 Pix screen aspect ratio of 16:9. In all other respects it is the same police officer - Max Payne, which has the same features and excellent shooting from the same weapon that warmed his hands in a computer game. By the way, the main character for this game has been modeled with its writer - Sam's Lake (photo below).
The plot of the game is both transparent and confused. Max Payne, one of the police stations in New York, working in the Department of Drug Enforcement, came home one day and saw a terrible picture. On the threshold of the eye painted on the wall rushed signs that are directly related to the crime family who was involved in the manufacture and distribution of drugs. The house was turned upside down. His thoughts were confused, and he stood rooted to the spot until, until I heard a voice calling for help of his wife. Max rushed from room to room in search of his family, but he was late. A few short seconds, and cost the lives of his wife and young daughter.
C Max started this minute gave himself to catch those responsible for the death of his family. At first he worked on behalf of the police, and he even managed to introduce his best friend to one of the criminal clans, but it turned out that the mafia declassified double agent and decided to further complicate the life of Max. They gave them to meet in the New York subway, and then in front of Max killed his messenger and arrange things so that the police decided, if that Max killed his partner. After everything that happened to Max is really nothing to lose, and have no choice but to try to get to the mafia boss, even using illegal means.
From that moment, the fate of Max Payne in your hands. You will visit almost all the low places in New York to find a way for the leader of the mafia. Almost every encounter with the criminals will end up shooting, the outcome of which will depend on your skills. During the various stages should be given more attention to finding kits with painkillers, which allows Max to recover, even after being badly wounded. In order to improve health of Max, just a click on the image first aid kit in the upper left corner of the screen.
In addition, Max did not hesitate to take arms criminals and picks as ammunition and the weapons, which include pistols, machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles, grenades and even rocket launchers. Control the main character may seem a little complicated, but it is only in the first half hour of the game. Motion Control Max used multipozitsionny joystick, which is activated anywhere in the left half of the screen after the first contact with him. For orientation in place used like a joystick, the right of the screen.
Button to fire control, jumps and activation functions Bullet Time (slow time) can be arranged as you wish. To change weapons, you must call the upper console, click on the small arrow at the top center of the screen. During the game we should not lose sight of the fact that the criminals, hungry death of Max, not thick-headed paper. They are well oriented on the ground, use a variety of cover and are good effect of surprise. Their only disadvantage - it's jaw, and the conversations are in a raised voice. That is, going to a door, you can hear the conversation of criminals, and, of course, to prepare for the next massacre.
ResumeThe game is constantly accompanied by insertion type comic and voice-over, telling us about the thinking of Max or dialogue with other characters. This makes the game more interesting and does not let you forget any of the plot, nor the objectives pursued by the main character. Play it "casually" unlikely to succeed, because you simply suck. Although even in such cases the game has such a feature, as conservation, which can be used at any time. As mentioned above, the graphics and animations in the game are excellent. Sound and music elegant and completely passes all game atmosphere.
