What's New in Version 1.3.1
FIX: Sound effect bug
Fun and nostalgic, but not perfect
Had a lot of fun playing this game, really took me back to the days of grinding through Final Fantasy games, which I think is a perfect platform for iOS. Got through the game pretty quickly and was able to level at a good pace without too much wandering (it's easy to power level at the end as there are a ton of encounters and all reap high exp - jumped 15 levels between the last castle and the final battle just trying to get there).
Unlike most of these reviews I thought the controls were just fine for a touchscreen and wouldn't have been any better with a d-pad. It was a little frustrating the first few minutes, but once you get in to the game it because almost intuitive - not perfect but it definitely worked for me.
Now the bad. Some of the cut scenes at the end didn't have audio, which is odd because the rest did. Had to look them up online to get the effect, which kinda sucked. The story didn't have the impact other RPGs have had, didn't really care when the party changed and some of these changes I think we're supposed to be poignant. No twists that really took me and no real need for exploring or secret areas to find either (to my knowledge), which is something I like in my games.
However at $.99 this game was a steal - it fed all the cravings I had for a turned based RPG. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking to get an old school "fix."
Awesome game. Never knew it existed!
I've read a lot of complaints about controls. You tap the tile you want to walk to / interact with, and you double tap in a direction to run that direction . Tap once to stop, then move to the newly tapped spot.
It's not perfect, and it'd be nice if there was a d pad/ action button option, but I've gotten used to it 2 hours in and it feels natural now. Still the occasional missed click/tap, but I've played many worse-controlled games out there. That said - devs, it's worth architecting a dpad/buttons scheme to get the ratings up, cause this is a great game.
Visual style is kinda weird/inconsistent, but I got used to it pretty quickly. Love the animated monsters and cheesy sega cd era cutscenes. It's decent difficulty side, but the encounter rate is wildly variable. Might go 3 screens, might go 3 steps.
Overall, I'm a few hours in and having a great time! Paid a buck - way worth it.
Also, they redid the menu in a very apple settings-menu-ey way, and it looks bizarre but moves quickly.
All in all, a ton of fun. Happy to support this dev - more like this please :)
Poorly localized but good.
This game is decently playable and quite a treat if you never played the Sega CD original, but it is still horribly rewritten in ways that destroy the tone of the game. Having npcs marvel at ships by calling them dragons, then making some dumb reference to Terrorist Threat levels and California sales tax is highly disrespectful and jarring. Aside from that, if you can entertain a poorly represented game, this is adequately playable. You may find your money better spent on iOS Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest or even another game genre entirely that doesnt rely on story and world to be engaging.
There's a joke about the size of male genetalia at a port town when asking about a dock. There isnt much to the drama when the translator clearly doesnt care.
