A century has passed since the events of DRAGON QUEST, during which time three new nations have been founded by the offspring of the great hero of Alefgard.
But the peace they have long enjoyed is no more. Demon hosts summoned forth from the darkness by the fallen High Priest Hargon have brought the land to the brink of ruin once again.
Now, the young prince of Midenhall—a descendant of the legendary warrior Erdrick—must set out to find the two other heirs to the heroic bloodline so that together they might defeat the nefarious Hargon and restore peace to their world.

Ratings and Reviews
When my Dragon Warrior I & II cartridge for my Game Boy stopped working shortly after finishing the first game, I was glad that I could play the second on my phone. This is a great game.
The game itself is a classic. Although, among the DQ games its considered to be one of the worst, I found it quite enjoyable. The story is much more involved than the first one and the additional party members add to the experience.
This version of the game is probably the best. The game is generally criticized for its difficulty, but with this version a lot of that has been fixed; the ‘hidden’ treasures sparkle, the prince and princess are pretty useful, there’s a world map, etc. I also liked the updated sprites and the additional save options.
The one thing that I didn’t really like was the controls. Coming from the Game Boy, it took me a while to get used to the touch screen controls, but once I did, I did. And to be fair, there aren’t really any better options on a phone.
Overall, it’s a great game, well worth the $5 imo
Fixed At Last
So last time I reviewed this I wrote an extensive explanation of how this was Not Worth It. Well good news is, Square updated the game with a bug fix, which has now removed the crashing issue (which for clarification had it so battles with multiple of one enemy type upon defeat would cause a crash). Now I can write a proper review hurray! As a completable game it is reasonably worth it and much like an expanded edition of the first, which is responsive and does what it can for the original. As a remake (on the app store no less) I would objectively give it five stars but as it went so long without a big fix I give it four. Not that that matters much besides for the cover. Stars aside and to the real point, now that the game functions properly I can say it is a worthwhile game! Why are my reviews always so long
Not really a review so much as reporting an error. Game froze while on the top floor of the southern dragon's tooth while playing on an iPhone 7. I had a set alarm on my phone go off just as I encountered an enemy "Sekerleton", dismissed the notification (swiped up on the pop-up) and the game stopped responding, sound stopped and had to force-close the app. Not sure if it was caused by the alarm starting during/before the battle started or if it was caused by dismissing the notification while in-game.
Other than that, this has always been one of my favorite classic game series, you did fairly good work on this title, aside from losing some of its old charm without the original action menu. Still five stars.
