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.

This is your lucky week. Square enix is having both of those games on sale right now. I just got mine.

Yeah I was quite surprised too last night. I even tried out the "fixed scratching" mechanic.

I wasn't sure how we get mingle PP though. I haven't beaten the game yet so is it something I need to unlock? It says through practice or something?

Maybe it means through Tin Pin Slammer? I think you could get mingle PP from that on DS, I can't remember exactly how it worked though.

Yep, its in the Tin Pin Slammer (a quest item you can purchase from one of the shops in game). Within the mini-game, there's an option to "Practice" in which you play against 3 AI opponents.

Maybe I am just terrible at it, but it is pretty hard. I played twice, and lost both times. I earned 2 Mingle PP each time, though!

2 PP seems so little.... T_T Don't those Pins need like 200-500 PP to level up?

I'm not bad in practice mode but later in the game when you can fight 3 people at one time, I played about 15 matches and won once...

I think you would gain a lot more than 2 if you won the match. I think I had a score multiplier of 0.2 because I lost. Also, from what I understand, 1 Mingle PP is the equivalent of 20 Battle PP in terms of the dominant PP type for determining pin evolution (which you see in the experience bar for the pin in the pin details). I don't know if I am allowed to link to the TWEWY wikia, but the "PP" page there explains all of this in more detail.

You probably gain more if you win. Also, Mingle PP gets a 20x multiplier when calculating the dominant PP for pin evolution.

EDIT: Whoops, didn't see the new page.

Ha! Finally, mingling is back!

I have the Black Jupiter set deck, and it's real sweet!

I deleted this game because I collected all collectible items (bar 8 CDs which needed mingle) and 70% pins. Now they updated to allow all items to be collected =.=
