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
-------------------------------------------------
Praise for the original The World Ends with You:

Compelling and immaculately presented...from start to finish Gamespot

Nails just about everything it tries and it tries quite a lot IGN AU

Full of mysteries and surprises, interesting characters The New York Times

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.

I have just started this game for the DS. Am I the only person who is not keen on this? Its rare to see a bad review for it.

The storyline is just all over the place and doesn't make much sense. Does it open up later on? Also theres too much annoying dialogue which you cannot skip when you need to try a section again.

I'm not really enjoying the battle system, mainly because I suck at it. Do they really expect me to multi task between two screens? I end up just tapping in a desperate frenzy. Any tips to make me better?

Also I was expecting an RPG similar to a FF type game but set in modern tokyo, but this seems like an on rails action RPG. Is that an accurate description? Or is it mainly the beginning which is on rails?

I had high expectations for this game and really want to enjoy it, please help!

You need the full set in order for it to work unlike the DS version.

Eden set is immensely useful when fighting the Noise #96. Combine it with Yoshimitsu.
This video shows you how to use it. (Guy is a pro, check out his Final Time Attack video too.)

LOL... you should go to any DS forums. I loved it on the DS and so did many, so im sure it's just you sucking at the battle system on the 2 screens

And you have the wrong understanding of On-Rails. This isnt on-rails, it's just that locations arent open yet during the first few days in the game.

If it's for the DS, it's not this version of the game. They do differ in some areas.

You can fast forward through the dialogue in this version. I have no idea about the DS version.

I didn't like the battle system on the DS either. I set it to Auto (Fast) and let my partner be controlled by the computer at all times. The battle system on the iPhone version is much better IMO.

It's not on rails. "On rails" is used to describe shooting games where you don't control the movement of the character, you just shoot. Examples: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Rail_shooters
I wouldn't even describe it as particularly linear. Maybe it's because you don't have many areas open yet?

The TWEWY wiki is worth a look, there's loads of info there.

Why'd you pay $17.99 for a game you've already 'beaten' three times? It's a good game but not worth that much IMO.

Anyway, if you can't see the 'skip' dialogue option on the top left of the screen whenever there's dialogue, then it must only appear once you've completed the main part of the game - I have the 'skip' option, I don't remember if it was there at the beginning.

The script is fantastic, and I'd forgotten more of it (and the plot in general) than I realized since I'd played this on DS back in the day. I was perfectly happy reading it all again, personally.

If you really don't want to, I'd probably pass on the game altogether since that's one of the main highlights. The combat's still very fun, but less unique than in the DS version.
