Ratings and Reviews
Great game and great free update
Just to let people know, that this game is amazing and a true testament of square's golden age.
Great story and great memorable characters. This is the type of game that would’ve made a great anime series.
Updated for free. I bought this game several years ago when it was just a cheap port for £6.99 but square have taken some of the fans’ feedback and improved this version to a standard that’s on par with the ds version which now include the animated cutscenes which were originally missing from the initial iOS port.
It’s great that the update was free as well which I do appreciate a lot, so square keep up the good work.
It seems you’re on a vanity project to clean up and modernise your older games which I doth my cap to.
The sound quality is great; a massive improvement on what it was. The touch controls are more responsive which is another improvement.
The visuals do look better overall but isn’t a massive jump they’ve just made the sprites more HD friendly.
It’s not a remake that fans asked for but it’s a remaster we were given and it’s great. It’s good to see square doing something that is a welcome change for once. Well done guys
Great game, bad graphics filter :(
I just downloaded the upgrade and it’s nice to finally get some updated visuals and the animated cutscenes from the PS1 version.
Sadly they have applied an awful filter to the graphics like in some emulators. There is nothing wrong with lovely clean pixels or even scaliness on 16-bit graphics. The previous version filter wasn’t great but this is just as bad in my option.
Please can the developer at least provide options in the menu.
Chrono Trigger stands the test of time
Firstly I never write reviews on apps. Mainly because most apps have ridiculous in app purchases for a very shallow experience which seems to be the new business model.
Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI are the two greatest top down retro rpgs of all time.
Chrono trigger was created by the holy trinity of the guy who created Dragon Ball and does the artwork for this game Akira Toriyama and one of the Final Fantasy directors as well as soundtrack by Final Fantasy legend Nobuo Uematsu.
The gameplay is simple to master and it is a retro game. It is incredibly charming both in character and plot and I would recommend this app to anyone that enjoyed the Pokemon series or Gameboy Final Fantasies.
