''[=Grand Theft Auto Advance=]'' is a 2004 ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' title released exclusively on the GameBoyAdvance. Notably developed with little to no involvement by Rockstar North, but by Digital Eclipse, a third-party developer (best known for the two GBA adaptations of ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon''), the game is an eclectic mix of top-down gameplay from early 2D ''[=GTA=]''s and stylistic design and gameplay elements from contemporary ''[=GTA=]'' games, with other unique features, such as speed indicators and significant variance in on- and off-road performance, added into the mix. The game is also the first ''[=GTA=]'' (set in the 3D Universe, anyway) to be released on a handheld console, predating ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories''.

Taking place a year before ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'', the game's plot begins with Mike and Vinnie, two Liberty City criminals, seeking to leave the city and retire from their mob life with what money they have earned from several small-time jobs. Before their planned departure, Vinnie convinced Mike to do one more job for the Mafia, but is apparently killed in a car bomb, talking the duo's money with it. The game then centers on Mike's quest to seek out those who have killed Vinnie, working for multiple Liberty City underworld bosses for clues.
