Great Classic game needs update.

I played a sequel to this game on Sega Gamegear for countless hours as a kid, and was so excited to find this game in the App Store! It's just as engaging and fun as the Gamegear version. I just wish the developers had put some time into updating the game for touchscreen devices. There are countless clunky menus to scroll through in the game, and the superimposed D-Pad is awful for this purpose, as well as moving the characters around. It would be awesome to just be able to touch the menu boxes and areas you want the characters to move to during battle. The process of purchasing items and making changes to your lineup is also frustratingly clunky, with lots of redundant button pushing and way too many dialogue boxes. This is a problem with the original game, or course, but the iOS version could be so much more fun if they just gave it a rehaul. For 99 cents, however, it's an engaging and fun adventure RPG. Highly recommended.

My Childhood

I remember spending countless hours playing this game as a kid. But, the CD we had of the game soon became to outdated to operate on our computer. I'm so glad this game has been made into an app. It is definitely worth buying, especially if you are a Sega fan or a Pokemon fan. This game will take you on quite the journey, as you try to defeat an evil-through many stages and levels- that has plagued the land. This game is a blast, though I recommend new players to look up where to find characters to beef up your army, because the one flaw with this game is that characters can sometimes be hard to find and you can't go back to a town after you have completed the level. BUY AND ENJOY THE JOURNEY OF YOUR LIFE.

Shining Force problems.

I hate this game! First of all this is the original game, not the updated version. Throughout the game your characters will miss your opponent dispite all the training you put them through, and your opponent will hit you almost all the time. I hate playing a game where the odds are stacked in the opponents favor. It's frustrating, it's not fun and it's not very realistic. I can understand that nothing in this game is realistic, there are no demigods like there are in this game. But come on, when your warrior attacks the opponents prist, your warrior should not miss 3, 4, 5 times in a roll before they finally get a hit in. I absolutely hate losing a battle when I outsmart the enemy but can't hit the freakin target. My trained warrior should not be missing a priest, how hard is it for a warrior, trained in combat, to hit a holy priest with an axe? UGH! I wish i could get my dollar back.
