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.

Best Final Fantasy Ever!
This game has everything. Great story with a crazy villain. Best characters and there really isnt a main (you dont have to keep anyone in your group at all times), besides some parts of the game due to story purposes. You dont even need to recruit everyone and the ending changes a little depending on whether you have all the characters or not. Lots of secrets and exploring because every character has a back story, everyone has a special ability, and everyone can use magic. This is also the first time theyve used limit breaks (it happens randomly when your characters are low on health), so dont expect to see it often. Ive finished this game more than 10 times since it released on the SNES. I like to play it every year or two so I can remember how great RPG's used to be. You have freedom to explore once you get the airship. Its the best game in the series. The only reason people say FFVII is the best is because they havent played FFVI. And most FFVII fans are biased because the thing Ive noticed about them is that its the first RPG they ever played, seems to give extra weight to their opinion. Anyways buy this game and enjoy! Oh dont expect 3D graphics, they have redrawn alot but its a 2D game. If u dont like it because its not 3D then you are a 3D fan, not an RPG fan.
Long-time fan, love this remake!
This is one of my favorite video games. I've played it all the way through at least 5 times, maybe more. When I saw it on iOS, I was really curious how I would like the remake. The answer is: I love it!
The new art is gorgeous and IMO very faithful to the aesthetic of the original game. The new translation of the script is really interesting. If you know the original game really well you will definitely notice that the characters' lines are different: a little more conversational, and capturing more subtlety in the attitudes of this game's many characters.
The controls are, for the most part, really convenient and well-adapted to a touch screen interface. When you're building a party you can drag the characters' avatars around, which is nice. The esper equipping screen shows a little star next to espers you have already mastered, which makes it easier to find one you want.
My biggest complaint is the d pad. Even after 10 hours of play I still find it somewhat difficult to control movement of my party. I changed the d pad from 8 directions to 4 (ie. Without diagonal movement) which helped, but it's still not perfect. It's not horrible, but it's a little frustrating, especially in time-sensitive sequences like before dinner with the emperor where you're supposed to talk to as many soldiers as possible.
Despite the few minor flaws, I am loving this opportunity to relive one of my favorite video games ever.
A beloved classic, marred by "improvements"
FF6 was one of my go-to games growing up. I'm glad to see it FINALLY on iOS, mostly faithfully reproduced. However, I REALLY miss the old pixel art; the updated character graphics just don't have the same aesthetic, which is something I really liked about the original. The Playstation version preserved the original art (while adding some truly awful and bizarre FMV sequences, which I fortunately don't see here). The updated background graphics actually look lovely, but they're only done on a handful of tiles, which makes the effect seem inconsistent.
The music, though, comes across quite faithfully as do all the sound effects. Some of the dialogue seems retooled from how I remember it, which seems a little strange to me, but then again probably a number of the passages I remember may have been affected by poor localization to begin with.
The on-screen controller seems mostly fine. I could do without the "dumbing down" of secret finding; in the original, there were no "!" bubbles when you were in front of a secret item, and adding them kind of detracts from the excitement of finding a well-hidden secret.
I wonder if, in future updates, some of the "improvements" (mainly the new character graphics and the secret bubbles) might be made optional. I'd really appreciate that. I'd love a "vintage mode" so I can enjoy the game in all its original low-res charm!
