Irrational Games’ 2007 classic first person shooter, “Bioshock,” is now available on the iOS for $14.99, video game developer 2K Games announced in a press release obtained by Examiner today.

Bioshock” on the iOS features optimized touch controls and full “Made for iPhone” game controller support. The game is compatible on the iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPad 4, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5 devices as well, but will not be supported on older Mac devices.

According to 2K, “Bioshock on the iOS will feature “a new leaderboard system, an in-app digital artbook (based on the original Special Edition), and a new player profile function that allows players to see how they stack up against their friends with a number of personal in-game stats that track how many weapons and plasmids are used, the number of enemies killed, and more.”

When originally released, “Bioshock” garnered critical acclaim, selling 2.74 million copies on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Mac, as well earning a 10 out of 10 rating from Game Informer, a 9.7 out of 10 from IGN and 9 out of 10 from GameSpot. It also won Game of the Year awards from BAFTA, Game Informer, Spike TV and X-Play and spawned sequels "Bioshock 2" and "Bioshock: Infinite" and "Burial at Sea." A version of "Bioshock" was revealed on the PlayStation Vita in 2011, but was never released. The second episode of "Burial at Sea" is currently in development.
