Can't speak for the iPad 2, but on the 4th-gen iPad the game isn't bad at all, especially considering that it is iPhone-native. The gameworld backgrounds and sprites are definitely filtered, heading towards blurry (for comparison, if you've seen/played the game on a SNES emulator, the iOS version uses the equivalent of the "interpolation" filter), but all of the dialogue, status and menu text is perfectly sharp. The translation for this version is also tighter, more detailed, and generally better-written than the original SNES incarnation.

How are the controls on an iPhone 4/5? I see a ton of bad reviews on iTunes but am not too concerned since they're all from people that have < iOS 6. I've never played CT but want to pick it up on sale if the controls are good enough. I know it's a different style of game, but I thought the controls for FFIV were great.

Personally, I thought that the controls were actually pretty good. I played through the whole game, twice, on y 4th gen touch. I haven't played through on my iPad, but on the iPod, they felt perfect...

I am sure this has already been answered in this thread, but I simply cannot catch the rat in this game to get the password. I tried for about 45 minutes and I just can't do it. Maybe it's the touch controls, maybe I'm just bad at games but I was really loving this game until this part. Do I have to catch it to progress with the story? Can someone help?

I know this probably won't help much, but I do remember doing it... So it is possible. I just can't think back to remember how... Sorry, it was a while ago. =o/

When Chrono Trigger first came out the mouse catching sequence was the standard for measuring acceptability of the controls and many reported it was possible. Maybe take a break and explore around for a bit before trying it again. You'll get that accursed rat eventually.

Everytime I open it all I see is half the screen! I try to start a new game and then it crashes! Anybody know why? I have an iPhone 4s running iOS 5.1.1

Does anyone else have the ugly faces on iPhone 5s?
I played this game on my old iPhone 4 and it looked normal, but on iPhone 5s Chrono and other characters have a white face/black eyes that makes them looks alien/dead.
And yes, I tried to download it again.

(it looks normal on my iPad 4)

Wow! Sounds pretty awesome! I might have to pick this up now on the phone!
