What's New in Version 1.0.3
The following bugs have been addressed:
- Graphic issues occurring on iOS 5
- Various minor bugs"
Korean language support added.
While yes, there are some graphical issues as of yes on the newer devices... This is a great game that as far as we can tell will be seeing an update for the 5 devices. Sure it doesn't fit the screen fully (which isn't even a big deal compared to the funky character models which I'm waiting to be fixed to play). As far as I can tell that when this is optimized it will be amazingly fun. Considering you can't expect the controls to be spot on without a controller, I would argue that this is as good as it gets. As the controls are indeed easy to get the hang of and aren't detrimental to the gameplay (as far as I can tell). I only played for a little while as the character models throw me off and I'm a bit of perfectionist. Once the update comes this game will indeed be worth playing again and again, so I would consider this game an investment. I am excited for the many hours I will spend in the world of ChronoTrigger (a game that if you try to find on SNES you'll be lucky to find one at a reasonable price).
Poor port of a monumental game.
Don't get me wrong. I love Chrono Trigger. I am only giving two stars for the following reasons:
1. There is no iPad version. There is no excuse for any app not to use the full resolution of the iPad, especially a $16 game.
2. The controls are terrible. You move around like the ground is covered in butter. Well, not quite, but it is difficult to line up with and use an action on things to find hidden items, for example. Another good example is the mini game where you win the doll at the very beginning does not label the buttons, so it's trial and error at first.
3. It's almost copy/paste from the SNES version. Any added feature like state saves (bookmarks) feels like it was done by an amateur. The menu redesign does not match the look and feel of the game. The font is awkward looking. There is no attempt to update music or graphics (which can be good or bad depending on your opinion).
Overall, this game is a disgrace. Wii virtual console games cost half as much and do not have these issues and don't crash in the middle of gameplay. This is the reason people turn to emulators and illegal ROMs; poor quality products like this.
Hopefully there is an update in the works...
Still a great game
I'm changing my rating from a 2 star to a 4 star. Here's why:
We can't deny that Chrono Trigger is by far the best RPG game EVER. Great music, epic battles, and a storyline unmatched by any other game in and out of its genre. But the port does have it's faults.
The controls work fine to a point. On the iPhone 5, you have black space on the sides which remain unmapped so tapping in those areas will render no response. Death Peak is nearly impossible to climb which, in my case, made it frustrating but rewarding I finally did get up there.
Graphics have been fixed for iOS6 and saves seem to be SAVED when syncing to the PC and iCloud.
I love the additional worlds in this version (DS introduced them first) and the New Game+ is a well received port from the PSX version.
I beat the game and I'm looking forward to the dimensions available and beating the crap out of Lavos again. Hope this helps in your purchase.
UPDATE: I'm back to a 2 star since cloud support is not available on this app. Cousin deleted my app (grr) and when I reinstalled it I was back to New Game... I was gonna beat Lavos a 3rd time once I was at max lvl up. FIX THIS GUYS!!!
