App description: "FINAL FANTASY IV" has finally come to the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad!

The title first debuted in 1991 as the fourth installment in the FINAL FANTASY series. Wildly popular thanks to its unique characters and dramatic storylines, it went on to be ported to many different platforms.

FINAL FANTASY IV was the first title to introduce the Active Time Battle (ATB) system, which has become synonymous with the series. It also saw the introduction of the Augment system, which enabled the transfer of abilities from other characters and gave players an edge in battles.

This iconic title is packed with other amazing features.

- Voice acting for event scenes
Key events unfold with spoken dialogue.

- Deeply emotional portrayals
Characters go through visibly apparent emotional changes.

- A brand new mapping feature
Players start with a completely blank dungeons map, adding an element of the unknown to the mix!

- Jukebox
Players can listen to the game's music anytime they want.


Stripped of his command after questioning the king, the dark knight Cecil, captain of the Red Wings airship brigade, is dispatched to the distant Valley of Mist together with Kain, his sworn comrade and commander of the Dragoons.

And so begins the epic never-before-told tale of the legendary Crystals.


iOS Version Features

- Brand new 3D graphics, including backgrounds, and revamped events.

- Game difficulty has been adjusted for improved playability.

- Game Center support and plenty of achievements to be earned.

- iPhone 5 compatibility.

I'm gonna go buy their other RPGs as well since I already own FFT. I think Chaos Rings 2 (or the older ones) and Song Summoner are good choices.


Btw, the game does NOT have those FF4 black bars. Unless it's special for a device version. Mine on the 5G touch is stretched and I barely notice it. I actually may prefer the stretch to take up the extra space. If it looked terrible of course I'd rather have bars but that's not the case.

Are those borders with the logo from the iPhone 5??

Add me on GameCenter (and every other network!) my user ID is kushykush on all of them!

Here's a screen cap I personally took from my device.

These borders are really annoying. It also does the shitty thing in which your guy stops moving if you drag your finger past the borders.

maybe i should just suck it up and play with borders off.

Hey, I have a simple question. I live in Germany, does the game support multi languages? Ok I got my answer, and its a yes.

On my iPhone 5 it fluctuates between around 30fps and 15fps, depending on what's going on. Battles generally run badly. There's really no excuse for it, given the super low end nature of the visuals.

Also the 'widescreen' support is truly pathetic, as it's just the regular iPhone screen ratio stretched horizontally, complete with doubled up pixels.

Have to say this is a really lazy effort from Square.

So this looks great, but I did some research and I'm wondering exactly what kind of choices the game gives you that add to the strategy. In ff3 it was all about choosing a good mix of different classes, but now that you don't pick the classes anymore what other strategy is involved? I like ff, but if it's just going to be a linear grind then I think I'll pass.

does the game include the FMVs that the DS version had? it pissed me off that III didn't include an HD version of that awesome intro cutscene, and I'm probably just going to beat the DS version of IV instead if they didn't bother to include the sweet CG cutscenes.

what's with square and their CG cutscene hate on iOS? anyone notice that they removed all of the FMV stuff from any games they ported?
