GTA, FIFA, COD… best console classics for iPhone and Android

Smartphones have come on leaps and bounds in the past year or so. They’ve got smarter, faster and sleeker, not to mention cheaper.

But one of the best things to come out of the boom in smartphone technology has got to be the quality of games available.

Simple, short term games like Doodle Jump and Fruit Ninja kept users entertained for a while, but there is only so much fruit you can chop before it gets a little repetitive.

We have started to crave more from our smartphones, and gamers have been crying out for a bit more of a challenge.

Developers have stepped up to the plate this year, with a range of traditionally console-based games finally coming to Android and iOS.

But what console classics are available on smartphones? Here is our pick of the best console games you can play on the go.


This masterpiece of a game was a revelation when it first came out a decade ago. Available on PC and PS2, GTA III was Rockstar Games’ first foray into the world of 3D.

It was a massive success, and is now available on Android and iOS devices. Fans of the game will rejoice as they are taken on a trip down memory lane to the old-school Liberty City we all know and love.

Call of Duty: Zombies

This highly enjoyable hidden level on Call of Duty was a huge hit with fans. It first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War and has made an appearance in several other titles since.

The Zombie challenge was given the smartphone makeover earlier this year, and works surprisingly well. The game play and controls are virtually identical to those on the Playstation and Xbox, and there is an excellent multiplayer option via Wi-Fi.


Football games have been a staple on consoles for as long as we can remember, getting bigger and better with each passing year.

But they have struggled to convert to smartphones, with the touchscreen controls often hard to get to grips with. But with FIFA 12 we finally have a smartphone footy game that’s worth the download fee.
