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.

Wow surprise surprise, SE actually included this game in its Chrostmas sale. Maybe I'll pick it up now.

Okay, I have the game on my iPhone 5 and my iPad... I only bought both because I heard how you needed two physically close devices in order to mingle. However, it doesn't seem to be working and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Bluetooth is flipped on for both but they don't seem to recognize each other when I head to the Mingle area and press "Trade". Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or give me a step by step procedure of how this is suppose to work please?

I haven't used the mingle function, personally. But there is a chance that the two versions of the game don't work together. If one of them hasn't updated, that could also be the culprit as devices running different version numbers don't communicate.

If all else fails, you could try installing the phone version to the iPad and see if it works for this function.

Apologies if these have been asked or answered before but I didn't find them.

3 quick questions:

Do you need either IAP or to play with another player (mingle?) to fully complete the game?

Is it worth buying for iPhone 4S?

How many hours for completion of the main game?

Never played the game before, but love the look of the unique graphical style, not your typical RPG, and noticed that the last update added IAP. I am not against IAP per se, but doubt that any of my mates will play this game, so wondered if you need IAP to compensate.

Thanks in advance

There may be a couple bits of swag you can't get without IAP or another person, like some extra music discs. I'm not sure.

All pin evolutions etc can be gotten solo since the new update, as you can obtain mingle PP from the practice mode of Tin Pin.

I'm playing on an iPhone 5, but it was developed with the 4S in mind(doesn't support the 5's screen size - hopefully it will come, but knowing SE...) so it should be fine.

I've always been a completionist and collector, so I actually don't know the general completion time, haha. It's a full featured game, though. So if you're questioning if it's long enough, it certainly should be. And there's reason enough to play through NG+ if you like collecting and completing everything.

It's a great game and I highly recommend it. You won't need to buy any IAP to progress. The only things that may need it are some collectible items that I'm not sure whether you can get without mingling/IAP or not.
