In 2007, BioShock set a new standard for storytelling in video games with its masterfully told sci-fi narrative about an underwater utopia gone to hell.

Seven years after the original BioShock’s release, the game has been rebuilt for modern mobile devices. While its gripping story and first-person action remain largely unchanged, there are a couple of all-new features included in the mobile version of BioShock.

A new leaderboard system for competing with online players for high scores has been integrated. The game also boasts a rather in-depth player profile menu for comparing stats and achievements with friends like the total number of enemies defeated. Plus, the game also comes with a digital artbook showcasing some of the more striking designs and concept artwork from the BioShock universe.

Perhaps the most important new feature in the mobile edition of BioShock is its support for MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad) controllers such as the Gamevice. Based on what the critics are saying, it looks like playing the game with a gamepad is the only way to experience the game due to its frustrating touchscreen controls.

BioShock is now available to download on the App Store for $14.99. Make sure you have sufficient free storage before downloading it as it weighs in at 1.65 GB.
