Updated graphics are really nice
As an old fan of the original, I love what they did with the graphics. Still looks exactly as my old fond memories but it's actually a better, higher res version. In this version, you can zoom in and out to any degree you want and the sprites all look the same regardless of the zoom level.
Controls are fine. Most of it is based around the idea of swiping in directions to simulate using the d-pad or you can just click on stuff directly instead. If you click on something not selectable (like outside a menu), it counts as pressing the confirm button. At the bottom of the screen, there are cancel and menu buttons. I am hard pressed to think of a better way for them to have done it (other than enabling us to use a real controller).
When it comes to selecting tiles for movement or attacks, that is done by clicking on the tile, or you can click and hold, and move a cursor around. This part can be challenging sometimes. There is, however, a camera mode where you can rotate to any angle and also put it pretty far up vertically. With this, the really difficult squares become a lot easier to target.
My first 5-10 hours on this game it crashed a dozen times on me and I wrote a review about it. Since then, I have gone about 15 hours of gameplay without a crash, so I think that may have been a fluke.
Really, the only thing I can fault this game for is being on iPad instead of PS4 (please, SE, release this version with the sweet graphics on console).
One of the Best Games Ever
This is definitely one of the best games ever created, the game has a terrific story and you never want to stop playing. I started playing this game when I was younger on the ps1 and was thrilled when it came to the AppStore a few years ago. Definitely a game worth buying, no doubt.
NOT for iPad 1
Downloaded this for the first gen. iPad. It simply will not run for more than few minutes before crashing. Wish I could run this on my iPhone, but no I have to buy it AGAIN for the iPhone. Bad form. Beware
