Great game like I remember but one flaw

I used to play this game on my iPod touch 4th generation until it broke and now I have a iPhone 6 plus 64 gb I can play it again but when I click the free mode it shows no maps? I've purchased maps before on my iPod touch and would really like to access them again. Please fix! It's a great game as I am a huge fan of square Enix games.


I bought this game when it came out in 2009, I played it for a while but stopped because I was frustrated with the last level lol. Anyways, today I saw it in my games and decided to start all over and play it again. Although, it just took me a day to finish I thought it was great! The characters are all beautiful, the story line is predictable but it sends a good message, the stages can take 30 minutes to complete(wonderful), and I live free mode! The ending is open so a sequel would be nice, and it would be great to see a multiplayer. It was worth every penny!!! Still challenging even when mastered, I love this game!

Great game, don't buy until fixed.

This is a great strategy game. I beat this game when it first came out back on an older version of the iPod touch. I bought it again to experience it one more time but there's a glitch in the middle of the game. I don't regret buying this game hoping it will it get fixed, otherwise five stars.
