Gamepad support has been added.
Initially released in Japan in 1993, Secret of Mana took the world by storm with its innovative real-time battle system and gorgeously rendered world. It continues to stand out among other action RPGs for its seamless gameplay that anyone from beginner to veteran can enjoy.
One of the most memorable elements of the Mana series is the Ring Command menu system. With the single press of a button, a ring-shaped menu appears on the screen, where players can use items, change weapons, and do a variety of other actions without needing to switch screens. This Ring Command menu system for which the Mana series is so well known was first introduced in Secret of Mana and has since appeared in most games in the series.
Play as Randi and his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they adventure all around the world. At the center of our epic story is the mystical power of Mana. Battle the empire in its quest for control of Mana. Befriend the eight elementals who wield the forces of nature itself. Numerous encounters await at every turn.

What's New in Version 3.1.0
Some bugs have been fixed.
One of my Favorite RPGs!
This game is at the top of my list as far as classic RPGs are concerned. I was so excited to see it in the App Store that I just had to have it despite already owning both a Super NES cartridge and the Wii version. The controls do take some getting used to, but once I got the hang of it I had no problems with them. The game graphics have been enhanced a little bit, which is also a plus because it's interesting to see what everything looks like. I would definitely encourage Square Enix to release more of their classic games (Secret of Mana 2 would be nice!). I also would like to see Square Enix make some new classic-style RPGs just for smartphones. It would be a lot of fun for those of us who love this type of game, and I think there would be a nice amount of money in it for the developers.
Descent Game for a touch phone.
I was happy to find more converted games from the consoles on the IOS format. Since I can't afford those pricy consoles and games. I hope we see more coming soon. This game is descent for a touch screen phone. The controls are a bit difficult to get used to but not impossible. I do also question some of the useful aspects of the game to the plot of the story. Otherwise great game for the price. I do think the price is a bit much for the type of game.
Hoping for iCloud Game Save Sync
I believe I was using a gamepad before the update that officially brought it in this July and the game was still very playable. This is one of my favorite games growing up and it plays fantastic with a gamepad on iOS devices. I’m hoping they give this game some iPad love really soon for syncing saves between devices. If that happens it’ll be a 5 Star rating for all time on this users account. :) Cloud saves FTW!
