Long ago, a great Dragonmaster named Dyne, with the aid of his faithful companions, defended the goddess Althena from a terrible evil. Time has passed, and those great adventurers have become the stuff of legend, but the world of Lunar is now threatened by a shadowy figure known as the Magic Emperor. In a humble village, far removed from the turmoil, lives a young man named Alex. Idolizing the legendary Dyne, Alex dreams of one day becoming a renowned Dragonmaster and matching the achievements of his lifelong hero. Encouraged by his childhood friend Ramus, Alex sets out with his companion Nall and his adopted sister Luna on a seemingly trivial quest, unaware that it would prove to be the first step in an epic adventure whose outcome will determine the fate of the entire world.

The best RPG ever... now on a phone!
Although a phone is not the ideal way to play this game (seriously, go get the PSX version and its sequel), it translates pretty well.
There are a few basic flaws native to phone games, like less than stellar controls, but the game retains its charm and excellent localization by Working Designs. It is unfortunate that SoMoGa went with the PSP remake Silver Star Harmony's voice actors during the cutscenes, as I find the originals much more charming and fun, but that is in no way a dealbreaker.
If you are at all a fan of RPGs, or great writing and characterization in general, then you owe it to yourself to play the best RPG of all time (with Lunar 2 in a very close second place).
Note to everyone. Save a lot. The multitasking feature is bad and will revert to an earlier point in the game. Save before pursuing the home button. Even for a minute.
About the game... It's choppy. Frame rate is horrid. But you did a great job on making it your own for a mobile platform. It's playable. The game atmosphere feels very rushed though. A 1 second black screen before and after battle will give it a better experience, and a less mobile feel. I'd give it 5 stars if you could speed it up to console speeds. And slow down screen transitions.
This brings me back to when I was really young. Lunar silver story complete was the first RPG that I played. The only problems with this remake is the voice overs they are not so good and the controls are a little wired at first but you get the hang of them. Thank you for putting this game out. I hope to see this game sell well.
*update* the ability to play with a gamepad makes this tons better. I can hardly wait to see the next game this company turns out.
