Initially released in Japan in 1987, the original FINAL FANTASY amazed audiences with its rich story and stunning graphics.
Players guide the Warriors of Light as they set out on a quest to restore the crystals to their former luster. Its side-view battles, choice and promotion of character classes, and sprawling world explored with fantastic vehicles quickly became standards of the series. This game set the stage for all FINAL FANTASY games to come.
This release also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game--the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time.
Additional Information (reference only):

Issues preventing five stars
The game itself is a joy, but there are two problems. Firstly, the game often experiences a glitch whereby characters' stats cannot be viewed. You simply get a blank page where the numbers should be. Secondly, upon beating the final boss and letting the credits role, you are simply returned back to the home screen when tapping without the opportunity to save again for a clear game save file. This makes the bestiary entry for the final boss impossible to attain. If these issues were resolved I would be more than happy to give the game four or five stars.
Edit: Another issue detected; text sometimes continues past the text box and off the screen. I have only spotted this issue in the labyrinth of time bonus dungeon.
I can partially manage some of the initial issues via total shutdown of my device (Ipad), but this only seems to remedy the situation temporarily. An update would be appreciated to fix these issues.
I've completed this game on iOS and it was pretty good, interface not too bad for a game that was originally controller-based.
Only problem I had was that the game would hang when I went to sleep at an inn if I was playing audio from another app while playing the game. If I paused the audio and let the inn music play then it would recover. There were a few other triggers for this too. Not sure why you would require audio to play synchronously, seems like a poor design choice.
D-Pad is rubbish
D-pad is totally rubbish and unresponsive. Makes playing the game impossible!
