Bastion currently has four different story modes. They all affect how the game is played in some way.

Normal Mode[]

This mode starts a fresh new game. Here the player has nothing to start with and Levels can not be revisited.

No-Sweat Mode[]

Starts a new game with unlimited chances to carry on if defeated. This is mostly for less-experienced players.

In the iPad/iPod/iPhone versions of Bastion, the player is able to freely switch on and off No-Sweat instead of having to start an entirely new game.

Note: Some Achievements cannot be earned in this mode.

New Game Plus[]

This mode is only activated once the player has completed Normal Mode. Starts a new game with all Structures, Spirits, and Idols unlocked, plus all weapons and XP from the last game.

Score Attack Mode[]

This mode is only activated once the player has fully completed Normal Mode. This mode starts with no experience and thus resets the player back to level one. Starts a new game with all Structures, Spirits, and Idols unlocked, but levels are repeatable with a scoring system.
