FINAL FANTASY VI for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is here!
FINAL FANTASY VI first debuted in 1994 as the sixth installment in the iconic FINAL FANTASY series. Innovations included the ability to play all the main characters as the game's protagonist, and to this day, its epic story intertwining each of their fates is still highly rated and wildly popular. The characters' dramatic performances are also highly rated, including the catastrophe occurring midway through, which delivers a particular emotional jolt to players.
With plenty of abilities available and the magicite system for controlling spells/summoning, players can develop their characters any way they want. This was also the first FINAL FANTASY game to include the Ultima Weapon, the most powerful sword of all and a recurring item in subsequent titles within the series.

The War of Magi left little but ashes and misery in its wake. Even magic itself had vanished from the world. Now, a thousand years later, humankind has remade the world through the power of iron, gunpowder, steam engines, and other machines and technologies.
But there is one who possesses the lost power of magic--a young girl name Terra whom the evil Empire has kept enslaved in an effort to harness her power as weapon. This leads to a fateful meeting between Terra and a young man named Locke. Their harrowing escape from the Empire's clutches sets in motion a series of events that touches countless lives and leads to one inevitable conclusion.

No Sound on iOS 8 - Do A Google Search First
I was overjoyed to see this game was being ported to iOS. I grant Square Enix much gratitude that they made this port cross-compatible between iPhone and iPad with your saves going into the cloud. That means you can use the iPhone on the go and your iPad when you prefer. However, there is a major bug. Several users were unable to get the sound to work after iOS 8 came out. I found two forums on the web where users reported this issue. Playing this game without Nobuo Uematsu's score is like watching Star Wars on mute; the music is part of the immersion into the story. For some dropping the notification window and then closing it fixed the sound; however, for some that fix doesn't work. I am among the unfortunate buyers who this fix does not work for. I cannot seem to find anywhere to submit a bug report so I am hoping the developers will see this post and try to fix it. I'll happily change this to a five star review once this situation is resolved.
Great game, awful controls
This game is one of the best on the Apple Store, however the movement controls are big, slow, and don't optimize from phone to iPad. I play games with the movement control to my left side and as low as possible on screen, but with FF6 the controls are too slow to react to different finger placements quickly, they stay on the screen too long even after you lift your finger, and so big that on my iPhone 5 they get cut off on the bottom making me lose downward and left movements until I re-adjust, and take up a too large portion of the screen if I raise it up higher. This is the only thing that I would want changed, or hope gets changed in updates. Other then that this game is amazing.
Nostalgic Without Modern Control
I spent so many hours playing this in its "FF3" release form. This was a "must have" title to play on iOS, however having spent some time playing the game, the familiar cast and events I loved so dearly are quickly pushed aside by the frustrations of the virtual control pad. I've been tempted to through my device at times.
The updated graphics are very appreciated and revisiting this title once again is wonderful, but the struggle with the controls is killing this game for me.
If only I could tap on the screen to where I wanted the group/hero to travel and that's where they moved to... The virtual controls are... Dated and unwelcome.
