Customer Reviews

THIS GAME IS AMAZING

This game is one of the greatest games from when I was younger. I’ve been waiting so long for them to update it and here it is once again. It’s so great to see this game and many other classics on the App Store, definitely a game you need to try!

Great port

Game runs great on my iPhone. I love all these classics! My only suggestion would be for Shining Force to come back to the App Store. It used to be on here so it shouldn't be too difficult to release right? :) thanks! PS I won't ask for the second game since it's lengthy and may be hard to port

treasure

treasure has literally never made a game that isnt 5 stars. the only thing making this app 4 stars is the controls. touch controls are notoriously bad for platformers. run n gun makes it worse. other than that, its a treasure game and its free. no brainer.
