Game Review: Bastion – iPad



The game takes place in the aftermath of the Calamity, a catastrophic event that suddenly fractured the city of Caelondia as well as the surrounding areas of the game’s world into many floating pieces, disrupting its ecology and reducing its people to ash. Players take control of the Kid, a silent protagonist who awakens on one of the few remaining pieces of the old world and sets off for the titular Bastion, where everyone was supposed to go in troubled times. The only survivor he meets there is an elderly man named Rucks, the game’s narrator, who instructs him to collect the Cores that once powered Caelondia. A device in the Bastion can use the power of the crystalline Cores to create landmasses and structures, as well as enable the Kid to travel farther afield via “skyways” that propel him through the air.

I was first introduced to this game by a friend of mine 2 years a go. I played it via PC and loved it though I didn’t get a chance to finish it. So I was very excited when it came out on iPad a year ago. I could finally enjoy the game and finish it. The only difference between the two versions is the playing controls.


The things I enjoyed most about this game were the amazing Graphics, the storyteller and the game play. I love the fact that there were endless variety of weapons. The game also has an interesting variety of creatures to fight. It’s totally original. Discovering the game’s world is a blast itself. As for the difficulty, the game is pretty easy to beat. Also very enjoyable, it sucks you in and you’ll never get bored. The game has 2 different endings both absolutely amazing. I’ve also fell in love with the soundtrack. I recommend everyone to play this game. It’s only $4.99 for iPad and $14.99 for PC. click here for more info.
