Initially released in Japan in 1993, Secret of Mana took the world by storm with its innovative real-time battle system and gorgeously rendered world. It continues to stand out among other action RPGs for its seamless gameplay that anyone from beginner to veteran can enjoy.
One of the most memorable elements of the Mana series is the Ring Command menu system. With the single press of a button, a ring-shaped menu appears on the screen, where players can use items, change weapons, and do a variety of other actions without needing to switch screens. This Ring Command menu system for which the Mana series is so well known was first introduced in Secret of Mana and has since appeared in most games in the series.
Play as Randi and his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they adventure all around the world. At the center of our epic story is the mystical power of Mana. Battle the empire in its quest for control of Mana. Befriend the eight elementals who wield the forces of nature itself. Numerous encounters await at every turn.

6 Plus, iOS 9
Once an avid fan, I often hesitate before buying iOS ports of older games by SquareEnix because the company almost always fails to provide continued support for its apps. They're trading on a legacy & reputation that has run it's course for the most part. And, yes, they've been paying attention because—from time to time—users tend to see half-hearted efforts such as the latest "update." Caveat emptor (Translation: Buyer beware).
Edit (02/02/2015): Plus one star for MFi support. Please update The World Ends With You for newer devices. We paid good money for these titles, Squenix!
Edit (09/30/2015): This would be a no-star review if at all possible, as SoM has not be updated for iOS 9 compatibility. Apple is not blameless, but Squenix has the resources to tackle such problems.
Edit (10/24/2015): Finally...
