Relive the excitement of Final Fantasy Adventure―a timeless classic remastered for a new generation.
Enshrined atop Mt. Illusia, high above the lofty clouds, stands the Tree of Mana. Drawing its life energy from the boundless celestial aether, the sentinel grows in silence. Legend holds that he who lays his hands upon its trunk will be granted power eternal―a power the Dark Lord of Glaive now seeks to further fuel his bloody quest for domination.
Our unlikely hero is one of countless gladiators indentured to the Duchy of Glaive. Each day, he and his ill-fated companions are dragged from their cells and bade to fight exotic beasts for the amusement of the Dark Lord. If victorious, they are thrown back into the dungeons with just enough bread to tide them over until their next match. But a body can only take so much, and it is never long before the weary captives succumb to their cruel fates.
Adventures of Mana's battle system grants you the freedom to move about the playing field without restriction, allowing for thrilling combat in which you decide when to attack and how to evade.
Player movement is achieved via a virtual joystick accessible anywhere on the screen. An auto-adjust feature has also been added so that even if your thumb strays from its original position, you will never lose control of the hero.
Weapons are divided into six unique categories, some with uses beyond merely dealing damage. Determining when and where to equip each kind will prove the key to success on your quest.
From restoring lost HP or removing various ailments, to rendering foes incapacitated or dealing deadly blows, there are eight different spells for almost any occasion.
Bloodthirsty enemies are not the only things standing in the way of completing your quest. You will need both tools and your wits to overcome the many challenges encountered in the world of Mana, ranging from locked doors to hidden rooms to traps growing progressively more complex as the game progresses.
It corresponds to the screen size of iPhone X.
Ratings and Reviews
This is just a port of a PSP graphic update to a beloved game boy game that has aged very very poorly. While the polygonal 3-D graphics are snazzy, and the music as awesome as ever, the gameplay and storyline of this game were really never very engaging.....or fun to begin with.
Control wise, if you have an MFI controller, then it plays perfectly but who cares when you’ll be endlessly grinding against flat uninteresting monsters in order to accomplish forgettable fetch quests thrown at you by cardboard characters in a mellow dramatic, convoluted “story” so contrived and so ham fisted that it makes daytime soap operas feel like Shakespeare by comparison?
The game is riddled with game ending, unsolvable “puzzles” that involve doing asinine, ridiculously cryptic tasks like: walking around two trees in a the shape of a figure 8 until a secret door opens.....at some random, undisclosed place in the monotonous, one dimensional woods, that look like all the other woods. Without a walkthrough the game is virtually unbeatable.
With the look and sound being as good as it is, if this game were a completely reimagined (True Remake) of Final Fantasy Adventure then I think they could justify the relatively steep price.... but as it is? This game is just not worth the money or the time. The original was considered good in its time, for a game boy game (that people couldn’t beat even back then) but by todays standards your better off playing so many other games.
Great Game, Great Price, Save Anywhere!
Please make a Chrono Trigger remake with this much quality!
This is a beautiful remake of the old Gameboy game Final Fantasy Adventure (in the U.S.). It doesn't hold your hand like today's RPGs and it doesn't offer a way to pay for any info or upgrades. This is what video games should be: Pure and simple fun, with tight controls, fun gameplay, convenient saving anywhere, and a true sense of adventure. I'm 36 now, but this game makes me feel like a 10 year-old all over again. Five stars. THIS is what I want from Square-Enix. Sure wish more people would agree so we could see more games like this and less time-wasting, fleeting F2P "games."
Final Fantasy Legend Gameboy Finally on IPad!
Ignore the haters of the game!
Graphics are fresh and sweet! There’s a music note button which can change music back to the various FFA GB soundtrack songs featured throughout the game! Monsters give a dying roar and other effects when you beat bosses and there are other cool sounds when you defeat a frienemy (minor spoiler).
Yeah the slightly top down 360 movement is there like the ol’ one however the will power gauge on bottom of screen recharges faster than the gameboy game! Explosive visuals and the other positive aspects I mentioned make this game worth buying. Don’t pass this up!
