Gameloft bringing sandbox-style gaming to Android in the form of 9mm

Do you feel like shooting people in the face and running over innocent bystanders with your car? Do you want to do it while you wait in line at your local grocery store? Then you’ll be happy to know that Gameloft is working on a game that’ll allow you to do just that. The popular video game studio is getting ready to release a brand new game called 9mm for the Android platform.

Any Grand Theft Auto fan will immediately recognize the obvious similarities with the franchise’s San Andreas title. But who cares about that? As long as we get to carjack old ladies and parachute from a skyscraper, the game will be successful.

Looking at the trailer, it seems like the game will revolve around gangs, money, drugs, sex and whole lot of shooting — what more can we ask for. Also, it looks like the main character of the game will be a cop, so you’ll probably spend most of the time shooting gang members and not your fellow co-workers.

If 9mm manages to be just half as good as the game it’s trying to imitate, it could be one of the most succesful games on the Market. Keep an eye out for this game’s release by following Gameloft on Twitter, or us for that matter. Meanwhile, you can check out the trailer for 9mm below — which is very NSFW by the way.

    damn thats insanely impressive. Just amazed that it looks that good graphics wise.

    my only hope is that i can use my Xbox 360 controller to play it on android 3.1

    • Your Mobile Site

      I agree. The graphics quality reminds of the GTA San Andreas, a game that’s showing its age but I had much fun playing it at the time!

      One of these days, smartphone processing power will catch up with desktops. Did you know that some dual core CPU phones today have quad core GPUs integrated?

      I wonder why those quad core GPUs aren’t used in the advertisements. Everybody talks about dual core CPUs but nobody seems to care about the GPUs when it comes to smartphones and tablets.


  • JamTheMan

    Impressive what they can do with our phones these days…

    But was I the only one who hoped it was more like GTA 1 and 2 – based on that first picture and not the video?

    Would be awesome with the top-view simplicity on a small device…

    • Nick Gray

      Completely agree!!! I think developers are trying too hard to emulate console games on these smaller screens. Just because the new processors can handle better graphics doesn’t mean they should. A more simple approach could make a game like this much more enjoyable.

        Your right back when i had an ipod touch chinatown wars was sweet with its top down view. I hope this game is similarly awesome.

  • Taylor Wimberly

    Can’t wait to get some new Gameloft games on my Galaxy Tab 10.1!

    • Anthony Domanico

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Never again, Gameloft….I’ll be looking to the Warez for this one.

  • http://Website Jeff

    Gangstar: Miami Vindication is the game that I play the most.

    I’m buying this game for sure, but I hope Gangstar still makes a Gangstar 3.

    Gameloft is no better than imitation electronics from china. They cant come up with new game concepts on their own so they steal those that others created that were successful.

    • http://Website Don J

      Yeah, I whole-heartedly agree. They don’t have any original titles that aren’t supposed to be ripoffs of other, big name games.

  • http://Website Hans

    PS2 graphics? :o

  • rhY

    Sweet. Can I play it with my Wiimote over bluetooth?

  • GRAW

    Honestly, I don’t care if it’s based (ripped) off of Grand Theft Auto, it looks damn good and it’s gonna fit good my pocket.

  • mavricxx
