Long ago, a great Dragonmaster named Dyne, with the aid of his faithful companions, defended the goddess Althena from a terrible evil. Time has passed, and those great adventurers have become the stuff of legend, but the world of Lunar is now threatened by a shadowy figure known as the Magic Emperor. In a humble village, far removed from the turmoil, lives a young man named Alex. Idolizing the legendary Dyne, Alex dreams of one day becoming a renowned Dragonmaster and matching the achievements of his lifelong hero. Encouraged by his childhood friend Ramus, Alex sets out with his companion Nall and his adopted sister Luna on a seemingly trivial quest, unaware that it would prove to be the first step in an epic adventure whose outcome will determine the fate of the entire world.

Crashes make game unplayable


According to the version history, the last update supposedly fixed a bug that caused the game to crash after battles (that was 3 months prior to this review). Having spent $15 on this game I find it completely unplayable because it often crashes when you press the menu button (which you HAVE TO press if you hope to save it). Because you have to manually save the game (which I take time to do after each battle in case the menu button forces a crash, ugh) it can be impossible to save your data.

To compound the problem, I noticed during one play-through that the menu button didn’t work at all! I tried to moving into new areas, fighting a couple of battles, anything I could think of in hopes of not losing my progress. No bueno.

The game loses all momentum and fun as a result. I will certainly update my score when this problem is fixed because I consider the Lunar series to be the best RPG series I’ve ever played. Unfortunately this port still needs a little polish.

Awful port - now improved


This is a 5-star game in my opinion but the crashes are frequent and worst of all, you can easily lose your save. I wanted to replay this game badly enough that I got in the habit of saving after every battle and just dealing with the crashing. Unfortunately, when it crashed in the Meribian sewers, my save disappeared also. If the developers ever get around to updating the game I will give it another shot but I don't think they ever will.
**Review Update**
App was updated. Still crashes.
**2018 update**
Updates to the app have continued steadily and so I gave the app a third try. It mostly works now. It is not a perfect port, avoiding enemies is nearly impossible due to the controls, combat animations are glitchy, it does still crash, and once the menu button just straight up stopped working. Thankfully, the menu button issue went away and hasn't returned and the crashes are rare enough that I've made it about halfway through the game without major issues like losing a save.

Great game. Still crashes

Penguin's choice

Figured five years after launch issues would be sorted. Unfortunately I now have to save after every battle or large movement just in case and have double saves because it has deleted my save file before. Meribian sewers seemed particularly bad for crashes. Don’t get me wrong I love the game. Although, the controls are rough direction wise. Since the game is all turn based the “hard part” is mainly just avoiding enemies and navigating corridors. I am thankful to be replaying this since my ps1 edition (cd long lost)is far too pricey to replace in comparison. Overall I’m happy, now excuse me while I return to my quest to become dragon master whilst not losing too many minutes from infuriating crashes
