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
iOS 4.3 or later is required.

Square Enixs 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

It also crashes randomly, usually when transitioning from dialog to the map area. It never crashes when actually fighting or when running around or during dialogue. Mostly when it's loading something.

By "crashing" I mean it just quits to desktop out of nowhere. When I re-open the app it starts off from the loading screen.


Ipad 2, not jailbroken, Ipad version of the game. This even happens immediately after a restart.

I would have the typical response of did you restart the device, did you do a cold reboot/shutdown, (holding both buttons down until shuts down) are you closing out all of the running apps before you play the game and then try from there. The biggest problem I notice with with most IOS device owners is that they assume they can leave their apps open and go to the next one with no problem, until they have 20 or 30 apps open. Some of those apps deal with memory management well, but others still demand a bit of memory to run in background even when notin use, which in combination with other apps running can hinder performance of high memory demanding apps like this one.

Yes. Complete reboot using "slide to power off" slider. I'll try the two button reboot. Only app open after reboot is TWEWY. I am thinking maybe a corrupt file? Is that possible on iOS? If I reinstall is there a way to keep my save? I've googled an don't see other people complaining of this problem.



Update: Rebooting with home+sleep did nothing. It still crashes. Now it's even worse. I am at the last fight on week 2, day 7 and can't make it though the fight without it crashing so I can't advance any further. I've tried it 5 times now. Each time I have to start the super long dialogue/cut scene that precedes this fight before I actually get into the fight. I kill maybe two monsters and it just quits to the desktop. I'm pretty damn far in the game and would hate to have to start over.

Yeah, I'm bummed. I sold my DS version because I thought, "well, I'd rather play it on iPad or iPhone."

I don't think playing it on an iPhone 3GS would be much fun, though, and that's my only non-iOS8 device.

Screw you, Square. Guess I'd better hurry up and play all the Dragon Quest games before they get broken and don't get fixed too since I sold my DS versions of them as well.
