Default Bastion or stealth inc?

I can't decide which one, and I would like to know others opinions. Stealth inc seems like a no brainer, because I love puzzlers.

Bastion's combat is what's throwing me off. I've seen some videos, but I don't know if it gets more complex and if it's worth it.

Thoughts?

I don't know about Stealth inc but Bastion is a unique experience that's hard to come by. And combat has variety with different weapons and weapon upgrades your style changes completely.

Make sure to play Bastion with headphones if you get it.

I suggest Bastion, then get Stealth Inc on a platform with buttons (unless you have an MFi controller). Well, actually, either way I suggest bastion.

I surprise myself by saying this (since I usually propone iOS versions of any other platform, and am one of the first to say that any genre can be done well on small touch screens, with clever enough UI work), but...

Get Bastion, but get it for the PC/Mac. (It is on sale on Steam for 9 euro right now, but can often be gotten MUCH cheaper, through Humble Bundles and other bulk sales.)

Partially because Bastion, over most other games in existence, is built around the idea of immersion and atmosphere. And even I cannot deny that immersion is easier to come by on a bigger screen.

But also because Supergiant Games dropped the ball in this otherwise brilliant port, and removed manual aiming for ranged weapons (strangely so, since manual aiming could have been done so extremely well with a dual stick in place of the melee buttons). For me, this dumbs down the combat mechanics enough that I still will not play through the game on my iPhone, even though I never have the opportunity to sit down and play it on the PC, and really, really want to finish it.

I have a 5s. Bastion is better to play on this small screen? I would get both of them on steam, but I don't like having to sit down and boot up my old computer to play a game.
