– Simple, Accessible Controls
The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces.
The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen.
The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play.
– The Tension System
During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph!
The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension!
– Skill Points
Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities.
This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking.
– Monster Teams
Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is!
Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle!
– The Alchemy Pot
Combine existing items to create entirely new ones!
Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all!
Seek out the recipes hidden all over the world, and see if you can cook up something truly special!
– The Casino
Fans of the series will be pleased to learn that the casino is back, and fully-equipped for fun!
This time around, there are three exciting activities to enjoy: bingo, slot machines and roulette!
Just don't get so caught up in the action that you forget your adventure entirely!

Random crashes really bothered me
I remember playing the original Dragon Quest 8 on PS2 and really enjoying it, but I no longer have it. So I figured I'd try this version. Well... It wasn't immediate, but I encountered crashes often.
It would be as soon as I would normally enter a battle, it would happen as I try to enter a building, heck it would even happen if I changed rooms! Anything with a screen transition would have a chance to crash the game. This honestly made me annoyed, and didn't find the game as enjoyable as I did when I played on the PS2. Not to mention the lack of voice acting and orchestrated music, but that's just me nitpicking. Either way. It got to the point where I personally didn't find it to be rather playable. Not pleased with this at all.
Amazing controls, great game
First off this is the best control scheme I've ever experienced in iOS. It's perfect to play in short bursts as well as long sessions. It utilizes the screen perfectly as you don't have to hands blocking it. I love the portrait mode as I feel having the phone in landscape mode is awkward and unbalanced. The game is also very fun, deep and beautiful. Can be A bit grindy at times but that's all part of Dragon Quest games.
Please convert more games to this control scheme!!
Runs great on iPhone 6s Plus
Portrait mode isn't as bad as it seems. This is the Japanese version of the game that did not have voice overs but the text is in English.
That being said it's a great RPG that doesn't baby you in the slightest. Highly enjoyable and once you learn how to use the camera in sync with character movement I'm actually preferring the portrait mode.
I initially held off in expectation of the 3DS version but I'm glad I didn't wait.
