Here’s a little something about Bioshock:
Bioshock is a first-person shooter game will role playing game customization elements. The game is set against the background of an Ayn Rand-inspired dystopian setting. Gamers have come to associate Bioshock with its morality-based storyline and immersive environment.
BioShock places the player in the role of a plane crash survivor named Jack, who must explore the underwater Objectivist-dystopian city of Rapture, and survive attacks, by the mutated beings and mechanical drones that populate it. The gamer will have to make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture or save them?
This “genetically enhanced” first-person shooter lets the gamer do things never before possible in the genre: turn everything into a weapon, biologically mod body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques in an incredibly unique underwater city.
Sean Malatesta, CEO, IG Fun said, “We’re trying to do great things and BioShock on mobile promises to offer a whole new gaming experience and unmatched excitement amongst mobile gamers the world over. BioShock is a special game in its genre; it brings an element of conflicting morals which has an impact on the storyline, and, among other things, on the difficulty of the game itself.”
Vishal Gondal, Founder & CEO, Indiagames Ltd. spoke on this occasion saying “Bio-shock on mobile will herald the next level in mobile game development and gameplay experience. The PC and console version of the game has already been a huge hit and we are confident of replicating the success on the mobile platform too.”
IG Fun and Indiagames however, have not yet revealed the release date for Bioshock on mobile phones. But, the news itself was enough to make our day!
