After the Calamity, most of the world was destroyed and seemingly everyone was turned to stone, except the Kid. As the Kid, players will have to flee collapsing city, in order to reach the Bastion, where the game’s narrator Rucks, will instruct players to collect the Cores. Most of the story will be told through the narration and music.

Bastion is an action role-playing game with an isometric overview of the map. As players progress across the levels they will find and unlock collectible items and weapons. After completing said levels the Kid will find Cores, that are used to upgrade the Hub are of Bastion and unlock more features, like a blacksmith, arsenal or an item shop. Any level can be replayed if players missed any items or if they’re short on currency, called fragments. The Kid will also encounter challenge levels, where players will have to successfully use collected weapons under a time limit.

Key Features:
• Action-packed combat rewards playing with finesse
• Hours of reactive narration delivers a deep story
• Stunning hand-painted artwork in full 1080p resolution
• Critically-acclaimed original music score
• Controls custom-tailored to PC plus gamepad support
• 10+ unique upgradeable weapons to be used
• 6 powerful Bastion structures to be discovered

    Bastion reviews and comments

    Absolutely gorgeous little hack-n-slash with brilliant music, wonderful aesthetic, and a brilliant narrator.

    The World has been torn to Pieces and now it is your Job to rebuild the Bastion and turn back Time. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=726830872 Gameplay: Bastion is a relatively classic Hack n Slay, but it doesn't rely on silly button mashing but prompts the Player to dodge enemy Attacks by rolling or blocking. The whole thing, however, goes very smoothly off the Hand and ensures a quick Game. The Gameplay has an incredibly good flow and is constantly reinvigorated by new Types of opponents (which actually behave completely differently). An individualised Style Of play was Also provided. Because you have the Opportunity to improve the 10 different Weapons that you can find at Bastion during The Course of the game in Different ways. Even if the Possibilities are not very superior, you can still customize the Weapons for different Styles of play. What makes Bastion So special? But what sticks in Your Mind at Bastion and what makes this Game so special for me is not the Gameplay but the Interplay of Narrative structure, Level design and Soundtrack: Speak the complete Atmosphere. The Story is told with an interactive Narrator who comments completely on everything that happens in the Game. I really liked this Narrative Structure Because this Narrative Is unused and adapts excellently to level Design. Because by the Fact that the world has been torn to pieces, the Level itself is always created in front of the Player'S Feet, this Level design is simply perfect for this Narrative style. The Game is Accompanied by a Soundtrack that I still listen to after playing. It's actually worth buying the Soundtrack (Or the "Supergiant Collection") Here's an Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eqMszMGUww Difficulty/Long-term Motivation The Level of Difficulty in Bastion is quite low by default Kept. You can't even die in the Game by selecting the "no sweat mode." However, you can make the Game more difficult if it is too easy. Because with so-called "Idol" that you can find in the Game, you can make the Opponents stronger. In Some cases, it even goes so far that Enemies can reflect attacks or become invisible. However, I would still have liked to see a Higher Degree Of Difficulty by default. The NewGame + also offers no new Challenges. If you don't use the "Idols" on The NewGame +, it's even twice as easy to get through the Game. Pretty Bad. But There are still challenges after the end of the Game, on the one hand by the "Score Attack mode," where you can set a High Score for completing the Level or through the "Dream Level" where you have to fight Enemy Waves. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=726884776 Lifetime Bastion is unfortunately a very short Game, playing through the first one will see the Credits after a rough 5 Hours and with the NewGame + you can even use all the Upgrades in under 3 Hours through the Game bounce. Nevertheless, the Overall Package is so good that I have to say: The €15 is still worth it. Especially because there are some Optional Modes that you can aim for after finishing the Game. Verdict: Clearly, Bastion is a Video Game Pearl and, in my Opinion, a must play. While It does not set new Standards in Gameplay technical Space, the Overall Package is unique and memorable 9/10

    Beautiful game. Very fluid, has a nice graphic and the axonometric view makes it very much. It has a good amount of weapons and upgrades adapted to different styles of play. The fantastic storyline, really a beautiful story, with the narrator in the background following you step by step. Highly recommended for what it costs. Also because once finished you can start again with increasing difficulties and the possibility of equipping new upgrades.

    I have to say, what you get offered here for the few euros is the madness. A really good game. Graphics, sound, gameplay - all from the top shelf. Difficulty you can adjust yourself in the game. Attractive and interesting story. If you actually have the game through for the first time, more game modes are unlocked - so you can continue playing. So far, the best game I've downloaded from the store here. For the few Krten! Excellent!

    A very nice game. The design and the way in which the small world is built in front of your steps are very successful. If history is above all a pretext to break the wicked, we are nevertheless immersed in this world, well helped by the music and voice of the narrator (surprising at first but a very good idea!). All in all, a good game type hack & amp; slash, nice universe, a very light RPG touch with different weapons, unlockable improvements etc. A good moment in the end!

    Wow, it's a marvel, the sound, the image, the gameplay, MAGNIFICENT. Turns very well on the latest low-end iMac, under Lion, perfect. The camapagne is quite long and then we can redo the game with everything to unlock, the difficulty to the max, if you souahite course. 1199 for something like this, well worth it .. I just noticed two small problems: 1) The character sometimes continues to advance while I do not press any key, it's very annoying because we lose control and suddenly, we fall and we lose points of life stupidly. 2) The notch is jumping lightly, I do not know if it is a wanted ffet in the "earthquake" kind because it has made me even at the "Bastion", which is supposed to be a quiet place and shelter ... (I will remit the 5 paintings when these problems will be settled, otherwise I am addicted to this game). Ps: A day of multiplayer?
    Nothing less than the Supergiants' debut and the must-play peak of the indie games boom era.
