Square Enix's fresh-faced hit The New York Times called “one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything” has busted onto iOS in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip.
Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a 7-day gauntlet of action: the Reaper’s Game.
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.
A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: “Clear this mission...or face erasure.” With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death Game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another...
What is the Reaper’s Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all 7 days? Another mystery is always around the corner.
- Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist
Activate your combat abilities, or “psychs,” with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.
- Deep replay value
Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more.
- Explore a living, breathing city
Neku’s sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip fantasy lens.
- Redrawn art and Retina display support
Enjoy the game in full HD on your Retina-enabled iPhone 4 or later device. Art and animation across the game has been redrawn just for this release, making combat a beautiful experience. This is how all 2D classics should look.
- The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
Composer Takeharu Ishimoto’s complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs.

AMAZING GAME, BUT NO ICLOUD & iOS8 BUG!!!
Okay, glad I read the review before updating! And why is there still no iCloud save support? I might have to buy a new phone again soon and would hate to start all over AGAIN! It's been 3 years since my original review below. Add iCloud!!!
Why?! Why the freak?! How hard would it be to make it iCloud compatible? I'm about to sell my iPhone and move back to the states and get a new one. Spent so much time collecting things and now I have to rush to finish the extra chapter before I sell my iPhone! And I'll have to start ALL over if I want to get the secret reports! Screw you and your imcompetence and gouging! No, the price for this game is sound; it's a real game. But you screw everyone over on your IAP business with Theatrhythm! Even though everyone rated it so horribly? 3 months going and you still don't update or change anything. Why am I even hoping you'll add iCloud?
It's like a whole different game on this platform, I love all the upgrades. Good memories come back and new ones are made with this version. Sound is crisper and the tracks are at their full length. Graphics are polished and look great.
Knocked off a star because of a bug I ALREADY encountered not more than 10 minutes into the game. The SFX completely muted and only the music was playing when I switched apps and came back to the game. I'm at the latest iOS and have an iPhone 6S.
Completely Worth It
If you are looking for a game that has great gameplay, an amazing plot, and tons of replay value, then this is the game for you. I have already put 40+ hours into this game and still haven't gotten everything. Only thing I could wish for is a sequel, but even without one, there is nearly endless gameplay with 100s of different pins to use.
