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.

What's New in Version 1.0.6
iOS9 are now supported.
I've never owned an SNES, so I had never played this game prior to getting this app. I had just heard that the game was great, and I saw that there was an iOS port of it, so I bought it for the generous price of $10. This game delivered much more than I was expecting. It has intriguing characters, an epic quest line, and some of the best (and most unique) mechanics I've ever seen in an RPG. You might hear some gripes about the controls, especially in Death Peak, and I will agree with those complaints, but those problems did nothing to limit how much I loved playing this game and how great this port is. Just be warned: This version of the game is more difficult than any other version, so you might have to grind a bit, but don't let that turn you off. Even with the added difficulty, this port is the reason why I now consider Chrono Trigger to be one of the best games of all time, and I could not recommend it more to anyone who is a fan of RPGs. I honestly don't regret not playing it on the SNES first because this game is timeless and is absolutely fantastic no matter how or when you play it.
Needs more support…
To be quite honest, I love this port so much! I was able to look past all of the lack of customization that it lacked from the original and DS counterparts and I was able to learn the basics once more rather quickly and my childhood favorite game was once again my main video game that I felt like an expert while playing.
But once the font changed on iOS, I feel that Square Enix hasn't really responded in kind. If you play the game on iOS 9/10, you'd see what I'm talking about. The font is too big for the combat screen and your HP doesn't fit into the windows or it becomes too smushed together to really see the game how it's supposed to be. The font change is welcome to stay, as long as SE fixes it so it can actually look nice and polished like it did when it first came out in iOS.
Please fix this! I just can't bear to play the game knowing these glitches in text exist.
Subpar port, but the original SNES version is still in there
-At it's core, the SNES Classic is still in there and is still worth your time. Game mostly plays the same and extra features can be ignored with no impact on gameplay whatsoever.
-However, if you like extras the DS port extra end game content is included in this version and adds approx. 5 hours of end game content
-No PSX version extras mode
-No PSX version anime cutscenes (this is a pro for some)
-Touch controls can be problematic in some areas (Deathpeak!) but game is easily beatable (I've done it).
-Drains iPhone 6 battery more than twice as fast as other Square RPG ports on the same device
-On my iPhone 6 there are some text clipping errors in the menu. HP values can run together and skill descriptions have icons indicating the element of the skill and it is often imposed over a word/words in the skill description
-If the SNES version is your favorite you may be annoyed at a number of items and skills that have been renamed to be more in-line with more modern square titles.
For me, personally, the game loses a star for no extras mode menu and another star for the wonky controls and the clumsy menu UI. However, the core game is still there and still awesome!
