The Untouchables: Mean Streets of Chicago
“Never stop! Never stop fighting ‘til the fight is done!”
Eliot Ness, The Untouchables
The year is 1930. It’s the time when notorious gangster Al Capone ruled the streets. Prohibition has transformed Chicago into a city at war with itself. Rival outlaw gangs compete to control the city’s multi-million dollar empire of making and peddling illegal booze and speakeasies. Might makes right in this criminal world governed by hand-grenades, tommy guns and bare fists.
The Untouchables: Mean Streets of Chicago is an iPhone/iPad and Android game based on the popular film of the same name. Take part in the ultimate battle between gangster Al Capone and lawman Eliot Ness, this time in the form of an action-packed mobile game. Help put crime lord Al Capone out of business.
Using Facebook Connect, players can also see who among their circle of friends is the best crime-fighter.
