Initially released in Japan in 1987, the original FINAL FANTASY amazed audiences with its rich story and stunning graphics.
Players guide the Warriors of Light as they set out on a quest to restore the crystals to their former luster. Its side-view battles, choice and promotion of character classes, and sprawling world explored with fantastic vehicles quickly became standards of the series. This game set the stage for all FINAL FANTASY games to come.
This release also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game--the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time.

What's New in Version 1.0.9
Game is great. Why were the controls changed?
The game itself is great and is a very good port of the PSP updated re-release. However, recently the controls for the game were changed in a way that makes little sense to me since the original control scheme worked better. Originally the game had a stationary D-Pad in the lower left hand corner which moved depending on which part of it you touched. Simple. Now it has a floating D-Pad which means to move up you have to place your finger somewhere on the screen (which will make the D-Pad appear) and swipe slightly up. This isn't impossible to use by any means but really isn't ideal for a game with grid-based movement mechanics that are this old. Hopefully this will be fixed soon by either reverting back to the old control scheme or at least letting us choose which one we want to use.
I have no problems, personally.
I really enjoy the game. Story is nothing special, but it makes you feel like a kid again, even though this was never my childhood.
I see a lot of people are having bug issues, though I seem to not have any. I guess I'm lucky, despite always being unlucky.
The only complaint is the new movement system. Before, D-Pad was set. Now, it's where you place your finger, making it very confusing.
Bring back the previous controls.
Previous versions had stable controls that made sense. This new design is just bogus; I can't do anything.
Other than that, this is a good port of a classic game that defined a genre. I highly recommend it (when they fix the controls).
Get that control pad back to how it used to be and I'll change my review to 5 stars, where it ought to be. But with the controls as they are now, this game is nigh unplayable.
