Yay! This game makes me feel like I'm back in the 80s again. Having a blast with it.

My *only* complaints so far playing this on my iphone4:
1) No multitasking support.
2) Landscape mode won't "turn" the same orientation as the phone, so on my phone I have to play with my headphones on the bottom left near the virtual pad.

Other than that and even though I've only gotten into two fights so far, I swear the game feels straight out of an old school console like a NES - graphics, sounds, music - I am so far very impressed. Impressed so much that I'm wondering if you plagarized anything? (Just kidding - my point is that the music and presentation is so good that I could believe it was a port of some old game).

Glad to have some RPGoodness again!

EDIT: Half an hour in and discovered that if you tap on your character's information panel you can get into options and select quicksave which will exit you from the game. That will help when you need to exit the game and can't get to a regular save point. Would still love proper multitasking support in a future update. Still playing. Fun game. Very glad I bought it.
