Bastion hacks and slashes its way onto the iPad

Award-winning action RPG, Bastion, hacks and slashes its way onto the iPad

Bastion, the award-winning action RPG, has been brought, hacking and slashing, to the iPad. No mere port this, Bastion was been re-imagined and re-engineered to take maximum advantage of the Retina display and multitouch.

Bastion for iPad features all the highly acclaimed artwork, music, and narration that Bastion is known for, along with intuitive touch controls. Explore more than 40 lush hand-painted environments as you discover the secrets of the Calamity, a surreal catastrophe that shattered the world to pieces. Wield a huge arsenal of upgradeable weapons and battle savage beasts adapted to their new habitat. Finish the main story to unlock New Game Plus mode and continue your journey!

You've got your gorgeous, hand-painted artwork, your stunning original music score, a virtual narrator who follows your progress through the game, over 10 upgradable weapons, 6 bastions, and a "New Game Plus" mode that's unlocked when you finish the story.

Add to that full Game Center achievements and leaderboards, and we're talking serious iPad action. Whether you've played Bastion previously on the PC and have been waiting for the iPad version, or you're just a fan of RPGs and want to try one of the best the genre has seen, hit the App Store link below and hold onto your socks, because you're in for one heck of an adventure.

(And if you've already given Bastion a try on the iPad, tell me what you think -- how good is the iOS version?)

Bastion hacks and slashes its way onto the iPad

I don't know if I call it "re-imagined" touch controls. There's buttons on a screen, and you mash them, if I remember correctly. Maybe I'll just re download the game and check if there are alternative control methods.
