Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention

The Continent of Rune has slumbered in peace for 50 generations. A horde of invaders swarm across the border, while a dragon that has slept for centuries stirs in its tomb. Only the King’s youngest swordsman and his war party can defy the Dark Dragon’s evil power and crush the mighty army!

Deserves 5 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟

Recently (a few days ago) downloaded and paid the paltry $4.99 for no ads and since have been in nostalgic Bliss! No quirks, glitches or anything remotely (yet) that would garner less than 5⭐️’s. The rewind option is a nice “add-on” as well and isn’t overly OP. Thanks for creating a platform for me to relive parts of my childhood and for that I’m very grateful! 🙌🏽👍🏽

Great, but needs to be able to save without internet!

We shouldn’t need to connect to the stupid cloud server to save our games at anytime. Older versions of SF allowed this.

Glitches seem fixed as of now?

The glitches I read about seem to be fixed and non-existent. I powered through SF1 in a few-ish days, and am on 2 now. So far, no random glitches when healing, no crashing. I did pay to remove ads immediately upon downloading, because c’mon. 3 amazing rpgs for $5 on a device you can take and play anywhere? Find a better deal.

The only gripe is the in-game priest saves don’t work. You have to save via the upper corner save icon, and sign into your game-whatever account. I lost the first few battles on the first game because of this, but just restarted and figured that part out. Other than that minor thing, it’s awesome. It is nice to be able to save whenever you want. Mid-dialogue, mid-battle, mid-animation, whatever. Would be nice to have that as a caveat in the info before downloading. Just in case someone plays for 2-1/2 hours before quitting, then find out upon reloading the next day that nothing saved.

Also, the name thing doesn’t apply to this emulator (hold start when naming the main character, and you can continue to name everyone else)
