Award-winning first-person shooting game BioShock is making the transition to iOS later this summer, developer 2K Games tells Engadget. Originally launched in 2007, the game kicked off a trio of successful titles in the series, which is available on several platforms including PC, Mac, and consoles.
While taking BioShock to iOS is a big move for the series, Engadget calls the experience "subpar" as the visuals have been reduced in quality to fit within Apple's app size requirements for the App Store. In addition the device size itself simply makes the game feel "distinctly less immersive". The game does, however, play well if users can adapt to the on-screen touch screen controls or take advantage of an external Bluetooth gamepad.
An exact launch date for the iOS version BioShock is yet to be announced, and 2K Games says it will carry "premium" pricing with no extra downloadable content.
