Gangstar: Crime City is a 2006 mobile game developed and published by Gameloft. The game is about a gangster who explores the fictional town of Crime City looking for money, power, and occupation of other gangs. A sequel, Gangstar 2: Kings of L.A, was released on November 2008.[1]

Gameplay Edit

Crime City is almost like a combination of Los Angeles and Miami (mostly Miami-based areas). Areas such as Ocean Beach (as used in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City) and Ocean Drive are examples. Policemen and their vehicles are like the LAPD. Like Grand Theft Auto, the game has a free-roam, sandbox-style structure, and allows the player to do whichever mission at his/her own leisure.


The unnamed protagonist arrives in Crime City, looking for jobs to help pay off his $50,000 debt to the Kingpin. Various characters assist him, including his former cellmate Crank Marshall, but they all turn against him. The protagonist eliminates them all and rises to the top of Crime City.

Easter EggsEdit

  • The Miami-like part of Crime City includes an "Ocean Drive" area, complete with an "Ocean View" hotel.
  • Near the hotel a rocket launcher is located, possibly spoofing the fact that in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City the rocket launcher's spawn point was in a different hotel's pool.
  • If the player moves into another part of the city, the loading screen shows the vehicle the player has stolen and words from Crime City Police Department prompting the citizens to call 555-We-Tip if anybody spots it. 555-We-Tip is a fictional phone number in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, used in a mission of the same name for an arrest of a DA.
