A new update for Bastion on iPad adds universal app support for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and 5th generation iPod touch. The update is free if you already own the game on iPad.

"Now, we’d previously stated in our FAQ for the iPad version that we chose to focus exclusively on iPad both for technical reasons and because we “felt the game experience would not translate well to the iPhone’s smaller screen,” developer Supergiant Games said.

"Well, the iPhone 5 added quite a bit of screen real estate, so we decided to take another look. And sure enough, we found that Bastion looked great and ran beautifully on the new device."

Here is a full list of devices supported by Bastion for iOS after the 1.1 update:

- iPad 2
- iPad 3rd Generation
- iPad 4th Generation
- iPad mini
- iPhone 4S
- iPhone 5
- iPod touch 5th Generation

The game will not run on older devices for technical reasons, Supergiant says.
