BioShock Coming To Cell Phones 20

Pocket Gamer reports that a development studio called Indiagames is working on two separate licensed versions of BioShock for mobile devices. A video was shown for the familiar-looking 3D version, and they're doing a 2D adaptation as well. Indiagames' Sean Malatesta said it was in the final approval stages, and that "our guys and 2K have really captured the essence of the game in a 2D format. It's really unbelievable. It obviously doesn't look like BioShock as you know it, but it gives you the same essence. The guys are pretty proud of it."

      I'd sell humanity out in an instant, just to have SHODAN's voice available to tell me things like 'You have five (five) fiiiive new messages, i-i-i-insect.'

  • No matter the medium, with BioShock the devs will never have to worry about immersion!


    Thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the fish.

  • Best what? Bioshock was the least challenging game I have played in years. Those vita chambers where *everywhere*, ammo was, well, everywhere, and the big daddies were as easy to kill as a jolly easy to kill thing.

    You didn't need to care about health or powerup juice (aka 'eve'), because if you ran out, all you had to do was 'die', regenerate near to where you where (you always are) and you get some more free, over and over and over and over.....

    I played it through more out of curiosity then any sense of f

    • Too easy?

      Apply the patch update and change the options to disable vita chambers. Now death means death.

    We didn't buy Bioshock and give it all these Game of the Year awards because we liked the mechanics. The game is impressive because of its atmosphere, its unfolding mystery, and the sprawling world it invites you to discover while fending off hordes of bad guys. The actual enemy killing part is the least interesting portion of the game, but it's the only part of the game that would translate to a cell phone.

    We're happy to report that in the cell phone version of the game we've been able to include the full version of the hacking mini-game! In fact, that's all we included...
  • I don't own a current-generation console, MAY consider a PS3 if the price drops a lot. So I'm mostly a PC gamer. And I refuse to buy any software that involves "limited activations" like Bioshock. So if they figure out a way to port Bioshock to S60, well... something tells me a LOT will be lost in translation though.

    • Forget about the PS3 in case of bioshock, the PC version nowadays sells for 10 euros the PS3 still for 70, that is the prime example on how screwed console owners get with the game prices!
