Fun playing through this classic on iOS!


My first Dragon Quest game was VIII but when I saw the iOS adapt d version for $.99, I had to give it a try. For what it is and it's price, it's a great game to play for historical fun. Obviously, don't expect to much since this is a direct port of an old, NES/Famicom classic from the 80s but it's still fun regardless.

I decided to write a nee review today because I'm also glad to see that SE is taking the time to keep their older iOS library up to date so that their software can work for iOS 10 and beyond. Of course, I launched my old save just to be sure everything is working properly. After a few minutes of game play, everything sounds and looks great!

Thanks SE for releasing awesome games from your past. Now, what's it going to take to get a re-release of Rad Racer? ;)

Great Old Game


Faithfully reproduces the classic RPG: Dragon Quest (or Dragon Warrior for those of us here in America who discovered the game on NES). This version is similar to the GameBoy version. They did add a "quick save" function that is amazing, especially for mobile devices. All the monsters seem to be there along with all the items, including that cursed belt. The quick save function does make you less cautious because you can always just reload if you run into a scorpion before you learn Sizz (or Blaze), but the save function is definitely needed for mobile gaming. Amazing addition to any lover of classic RPGs!

An amazing game


This is an outstanding game. It's a short, basic game, yet fun and nice. Nothing too hard, nothing too easy. It was something I thoroughly enjoyed playing again and even a second time. It's s classic and a great one at that. My only problem is that you can listen to music as you play the game. The game just shuts out music entirely. Maybe make the game cheaper as well since it also doesn't have that much of a replayability to it, nor is it a long game. I beat it in a week. Maybe ¢99 or $1.99 is a good price. But other than that, the game itself is great.
