I agree, up to a point. Final Fantasy 3 was worth the $16 I paid. This game, with RPG Maker graphics, I don't know. Now, it is a new game, but I still have my reservations. I don't think I would pay $30 for this on my 3DS, let alone my iPhone. It better be a kick-ass RPG for me to pay that much. $15-20 maybe.

My fear with this thread is people will call everyone who protests the price as 'cheap' and that their opinion is wrong.

The game may very well be worth $28.99. Then again, it may not. If the game is simply a dumbed down RPG for mobile platforms then it certainly isn't and I have every right to expect to pay $10 or so for it.

I haven't played this game, but from what I have seen, Chaos Rings and its sequels seem more deserving of such a high price than this does.

Honestly, I stop carrying about the price as soon as the first tune did kick-in.. *melting*

Was this created with RPG Maker? I can't shake the feeling

Sorry it feels like an indie effort instead of a big name developer title.

I'm not sure about this one. Don't get me wrong, I believe developers should be able to charge the real value of a game. I thought FF3 was honestly undervalued for what it is, and I thought the other FF games and the Chaos rings ones were properly costed. But this is a mobile phone 2d game at twice the cost of the DS/Console RPGs that doesn't have the same history as the other FF games or the same innovation as the CR series. I'm hesitant to put the $ down for this.

From the videos this one just doesn't look good at all. No retro charm, just cheap. Take away the wonderful music and there's not much left. The story must be in regions of the best Final Fantasy episodes to justify that price and I highly doubt it. I'll wait for another Chaos Rings. THAT's the series the iOS world deserves.

I would've liked the interface to look better. I guess it'll be my main complaint.

Looks like the battle system is ATB which is same as FFIV and such.
