Grand Theft Auto was a more family-friendly edition of the video game of the same name, released in 1999 on the Game Boy Color by Rockstar Games.

Technical[edit | edit source]

The Game Boy Color version of Grand Theft Auto was technologically unabridged, which was quite a technical achievement due to the sheer size of the cities, converted tile-for-tile from the PC original, making them many times larger than most Game Boy Color game worlds of the time, because of the handheld's limited hardware. To cater for the target younger generation, however, the game was heavily censored, with gore and swearing removed.
