Marle, fearless and brimming with curiosity, volunteers to assist in a demonstration. An unanticipated malfunction, however, sends her hurtling through a rift in the dimensions. Taking hold of the girl's pendant, Crono bravely follows in pursuit. But the world into which he emerges is the one of four centuries before.

This is my favorite game, but I have some ideas to make it better,

I wanna go find his mom at the end of the game, I wanna know what happens to schala I wanna know about the baby lucca found, I wanna be able to go to the saved future. The ending is super ambiguous and I wish there was more to it. Like a playable epilogue. I’ve played this game over and over again since o was 6. Probably atleast 3 times a year every year. I started on the snes version, played the ds version and now i play the mobile version. It was just this year I discovered the new dungeons. The new enemy as well. I want to be able to play the saved future. I wanna know what daltons plans are and I want to defeat him. I wanna see if magus/Janus can save schala, to see what the baby who popped up is and why they’re important. And also to go and find chronos mom since at the end she goes into the gate for the cat. There’s so many things, if you guys could add a playable epilogue with all of those things you would seriously be making a girls dream come true. Or just add new “levels” and extend the game to find out all of the mysteries. I know there are sequels but I’ve heard they don’t do much for the plot of Chrono Trigger. This game is everything to me, if I had the money I’d literally fund all of this lol.

A fine port.

I enjoy this game. I played CHRONO trigger back in the day on the gba and recall being very absorbed into the story. It was one of the few rpgs at the time that immersed me all the way through. Now this port, this update, with its “hd” upgrade is quite subjective. Do I prefer the old art or the new one, seems to be the debate. Honestly, I like the original sprites. Despite the new one with it’s issues like blocky texture lines everywhere, I enjoy the contrast of the colors; the old one has a very vintage look that would be cool to swap back to. The core game is still here, I’ve yet to run into any glitches (the guy that reviewed about not being able to return the cat, just walk up to it and it’ll follow you, don’t tap the screen/press anything or it’ll run away). I do hope they continue to support this game throughout the years for it is a timeless classic, this update is very welcome and hopefully we’ll see more of these every now and then to keep it running on future phones. Running on an iPhone 6s.
