Original BioShock was released back in 2007 for Windows and Xbox 360 and later for PlayStation 3 too. Now the publisher, 2K Games, has revealed that the game is ported to iOS and it is coming later this summer for selected iOS devices.
BiiShock is set in Rapture, an underwater shattered city. The player learns the history through audio recording found at some places throughout the game. The city was created by Andrew Ryan, a businessman and a billionaire. The player plays as character jack, who is the only survivor in a plane crash and he has no other option but to go to Rapture city. And then all adventure takes place in there.
