Having already found a home on the XBLA and PC, Supergiant Game's stunning title Bastion
has leapt (from almost nowhere) on to the App Store and in particular on to the iPad.
It's a welcome surprise as it doesn't simply demand players to stick with the control system
of the first two releases (though it is still available), opting instead for an intuitive
semi-auto fire tap and drag system instead. The only question that remains is, does it
still feel like Bastion?
For those unfamiliar with the title, you play the role of 'The Kid', a capable warrior adept
in the use of weapons ranging from hulking two-handed hammers to mines, grenades, samurai
swords, and akimbo-pistols. It's an eclectic range, but you'll appreciate the variety as
you encounter the mysterious floating-world's vicious inhabitants. Whether you're fighting
a gloop spewing Scumbag, a fire-spewing Pyth bull, or the always frustratingly armored
Lunkheads, you'll be able to dodge, hit, shoot and maybe even fire off a special attack or
two to keep ahead of the curve.
While you could play the game using a virtualized version of the original controls (stick-based
movement with an arrangement of buttons to dodge, shoot, and so on), the iPad version
boasts its own smart-control system. Tap or double tap and you'll respectively walk or
dodge in that direction. Hold down and drag and The Kid will chase after your finger.
In either case you'll start attacking hostiles automatically as soon as they're in range.
This may sound cheap, but as it is you still need to avoid attacks while positioning yourself
up for counter-strikes and power-shots, balancing things out.
Traveling through the world of Bastion is a unique experience all on its own as it forms
itself from broken fragments as you move about. As you do so your actions are narrated by
the friendly elder 'Rucks', giving the game an almost story-book like feel as new areas
are constructed before your very eyes.
This actually becomes a core aspect of the game as you attempt to recreate the world
by collecting crystals, granting access to stores that invite experimentation by changing
The Kid's weapon load-out; modifying passive boosts; reforging weapons for new effects;
and even remembering the fallen victims of the calamity that surrounds you.
Bastion for the iPad is a wonderful adaption of an outstanding action title and one that
feels at home on the App Store thanks to its control modifications. Purists may balk at
the reduction of challenge, but Bastion's beauty is not in the difficulty, but in unfolding
its delicate story, one skway at a time.
