The game is playable on iOS devices including the iPhone and iPad and will set you back $14.99. There is no word yet on an Android-compatible release.

As is usually the case for a powerful console and desktop title, the game has received a graphics downgrade for mobile devices. Early previews also claim that the controls can be a bit unresponsive when battling against multiple enemies.

BioShock was originally released for the Xbox 360 back in 2007 and later appeared on the PlayStation 3 in 2008 and OSX in 2009.

A landmark horror-shooter, BioShock is set in the underwater former utopia known as Rapture. Players assume the role of Jack, who arrives in the city after a plane crash in the Atlantic to find that its been overrun by its psychotic, drug-addicted citizens. Jack must use a election of weapons to battle his way through Rapture to find Andrew Ryan, the madman in control of the city.

The original release was a critical favourite, going on to receive several game of the year accolades.
