Landmark survival shooter Bioshock arrives for iPhone and iPad
After months of development, Bioshock, the landmark shooter with a twisted horror story, has finally arrived for iPhone and iPad. The game, originally released on PC in 2007, comes in its nearly full glory: with only slightly toned down graphics, but otherwise same story, game physics, levels, and audio.

Developer 2K Games launches Bioshock for a hefty, $14.99 price, but in exchange offers a gameplay that won’t be interrupted by annoying in-app purchases.

Bioshock revolves around the story of protagonist Jack, who arrives in Rapture, ‘an underwater utopia’, after survivina a plane crash that has left him in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. In the game you get to use all sorts of weapons and genetic mods to find Andrew Ryan, the madman who rules the mystical city.

Bioshock will run on the following devices: iPhone 5 and later, iPad 4 and later, as well as iPad mini 2. Note that the game simply won’t run on earlier devices.

Nobody would buy it for 15$ anyway just to play it on their phones.

I would. The game is literally THAT good, especially the end.

That type of thinking is why the crappy freemium model with money-pit in-app purchases exists

There are a lot of Android games running with more than 2007's PC graphics.

$15 is not hefty for a game of this size. it is a few years old, but is literally a full-size AAA blockbuster title. Except when it is on sale, this is still the going price at all the online stores as well.

I have already play it on my pc for much less. $15 is still acceptable for a new launch on iOS.
