App description: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
We have confirmed a bug that prevents this game from running properly on iOS 8, and are currently investigating the matter. We humbly ask for your patience and understanding until the issue is resolved.


------------------
SUPPORTED DEVICES
iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and 5th generation iPod touch (excluding 16 GB models).
iOS 4.3 or later is required.

Square Enix's fresh-faced hit The New York Times called one of the best role playing games ever designed for anything has busted onto iOS in a big way, with a slick and addictive new combat system, eye-popping HD art, and (of course) plenty of zetta awesome reasons for longtime fans to double dip.

Arm yourself with psychic superpowers and battle your way through a 7-day gauntlet of action: the Reapers Game.


THE SETUP
-------------------------------------------------
Welcome to Shibuya, a mishmash of attitudes and styles in the heart of Tokyo.

A boy named Neku wakes up in a crowded intersection, alone and unaware of how he got there. Then, he receives a weird text: Clear this mission...or face erasure. With that, Neku is thrust into a life-or-death Game that sends him scrambling down streets paved with one riddle after another...

What is the Reapers Game? Why is Neku a Player, and what is he playing for? Will the Game really end if he survives all 7 days? Another mystery is always around the corner.


THE PAYOFF
-------------------------------------------------
- Intuitive, addictive combat with a twist
Activate your combat abilities, or psychs, with simple touch commands like tapping, slashing, and dragging. Comfy with that? Control Neku and his Game partner on the same screen and take the combat up a notch. Like loot? Boost your item drops in battle with the revamped Fusion system.

- Deep replay value
Finish the main story to unlock a hilarious bonus chapter, more quests and items to find, new combat challenges, and secret reports that flesh out the story even more.

- Explore a living, breathing city
Nekus sprawling world is based on the real-life Shibuya in Tokyo. Visit real locations and absorb some real Japanese culture through a hip fantasy lens.

- Redrawn art and Retina display support
Enjoy the game in full HD on your Retina-enabled iPhone 4 or later device. Art and animation across the game has been redrawn just for this release, making combat a beautiful experience. This is how all 2D classics should look.

- The ultimate soundtrack: 60 songs
Composer Takeharu Ishimotos complete, sonically sublime soundtrack is included right in the game with high-quality audio and full vocals, including remixes and new songs.



THE VERDICT

Comparing the DS Resolution with the Retina. And yes those two small Picture on the Left are the actual Nintendo DSi Resolution. (Click the Picture to see it it in all it`s glory)

I hope that Way a few more do actually realize that you couldn`t just simple take the 60 MB Nintendo DS Build and just put it 1:1 on the Apple iDevice.

It does! That's why I just held out and bought it recently (once the 5G was released) and it works perfectly. 5G can pretty much handle any game smoothly currently. And it's my first big purchase that I'm pleased with.

And thanks for the responses guys. I'm loving it! Clocked in almost 7 hours so far and I just love battling because it's so fun to use the different motions for different pins. Collecting pins was such a great idea. And even good to hear there's more to do and collect after you finish. I just wish the pin battling mini game had a bigger single player mode than just practice mode (like choosing CPU/difficulty/rules/etc).

As for comparisons with the DS, obviously I haven't played it so I can't say for sure but my friends tell me that the DS one takes a while to get used to and takes a lot of focus (2 characters at once). I'm gonna guess and say this ios version is much easier for casual play. My friend actually gave up on the DS version for now because she said she struggled at the battle system :l

On the DS the controls are what made it interesting. Neku is controlled via touch and Mic controls on the bottom screen, while your partner is controlled on the top screen using the face or directional buttons which work the same way.

You should already have an idea how Neku is controlled in the lower touch screen since you guys have the iOS versions and it's pretty much the same. On the Top screen, your partner is in the middle of the screen and you basically tap a direction (or the equivalent of the direction in the face buttons) to attack enemies.

The main difference between the iOS version and the DS version with regards to gameplay is the way you need to focus on both characters on the DS while you focus only one at a time on the iOS.

One fun thing i did on the DS is utilize the Mic-triggered abilities (mic skills? ). Basically equipped all pins that requires mic input to use and instead of blowing into the DS's mic, I scream... til all enemies perish by my shieks. And then I named the deck "The Banshee" and posted it somewhere in the gamefaqs forums. LOL

Beating the superboss on ultimate isnt too hard, i even finished him on lvl 60 (to make sure he drops black jupiter) and that was a flawless win. My tips are using holy field deck and a dash pin, best one i think is Wolf.
To the new gamers, if you are worried of the game being short, i have finished the game and i have only mastered 23% pins out there, also my noise reports are about 87%. I have played for 47 hours and i think it may take me about 60 hours to collect all the reports.

I deleted the game and my save file was gone even after I reinstalled

Just a heads up to those who want to get 100% on items - you need mingle to get 8 of the items. Max without mingle is 490/498.

The game doesn't support icloud.. That's why your save is deleted.. About mingle items, i don't get any of them.. It's easy to reach the superboss even without the mingle pin requirement.. The story is different though if you're a perfectionist.. Just install this game on your friend's idevice and mingle until you get all of them

So mingling is when you just make friends online right? And trade "friend cards"?

Looks like I can never find anyone and it requires bluetooth? No wifi searching? You guys probably went over this in the thread but it seems like getting mingle points is almost impossible on the ios... =\

Does anyone know what the Eden set does in this game?

Mingle doesn't work online, so you're out of luck. I really don't know what SE was thinking.

Im not sure but i think whenever you perform a cross combo, a green, circle-shaped light will protect you from any attack until the partner pin runs out.
