App description: FINAL FANTASY ALL THE BRAVESTA pick-up-and-go game with massive battles!

Take part in intense combat with the largest parties in FINAL FANTASY history!
FINAL FANTASY ALL THE BRAVEST is a casual and light-hearted game in which you continuously battle enemies to advance through the many available stages. Defeat foes to level up, which in turn grants you character slots to add more and more members to your party.
Simply tap or drag your finger over a character to unleash an attack. Touch multiple characters in quick succession to experience exhilarating and fast-paced battle unlike anything youve ever played before!
Once every three hours, the Fever option will appear. Once activated, you will be able to attack without waiting for ATB gauges to refill as long as the chocobo-themed music is playing. Deal as much damage as you can before the battle fever ends!

Featuring nostalgic pixel art and music from throughout the FINAL FANTASY series!
Progress through the game to unlock over 20 different classic jobs, including warrior, monk, red mage, and more! Each job brings its own special abilities to the battleground, where you will encounter timeless FINAL FANTASY foes such as behemoths, bombs, and cactuars. At the end of each stage waits a harrowing encounter with a fiendish FINAL FANTASY boss!
The games musical library comes packed with over 30 songs from the series, the majority of which are themes from battle. The perfect soundtrack to listen to as you crush your enemies and see them driven before you!

Track your collection of every character, enemy, and item with in-game catalogs!
The games three catalogs will keep a record of every character that joins your ranks, every enemy you encounter, and every item you obtain. Collect them all and open the catalogs to flip through the nostalgia whenever you like!

Take part in leaderboards and social networking features!
Global leaderboards will rank players based on stats such as the amount of damage dealt in the course of a single Fever. You will also be able to track progress and other feats using the games achievement system. Social networking features allow you to post directly to Twitter, and reward you for doing so by granting additional member slots. Tweet away to increase the size of your party for an even more exhilarating experience!

Purchase premium characters and new game worlds!
The in-game shop offers access to 35 famous characters from a number of FINAL FANTASY titles. Each purchase ensures you will receive a new, random character, and FINAL FANTASY characters who before existed only as polygons have been redrawn here in original pixel art form! Which powerful favorites will join your party? You are also able to purchase additional game stages from FINAL FANTASY VII, FINAL FANTASY X, and FINAL FANTASY XIII. Board airships bound for these new worlds and expand your adventures and collections!

Ooh, ooh, you know what actually could work, while SE are busy trying to hit every genre? A FF-based "endless runner" that basically had you make your way through whole FF games from beginning to end, with your character passing through areas designed to replicate the towns/dungeons in the order they would have appeared in the actual RPG, complete with wandering monsters, "boss fights", nostalgic music and recreations of well-known cinematic moments.

I could actually get behind that if it were done well.

And also according to what I see in the video, you can buy:

$0.99 - New random premium character (35 in all)
$3.99 - World tickets (additional maps/bosses) (3 in all)

I might have missed some, but so far it looks like $50 to buy and unlock the entire game (includes initial purchase), plus whatever you pay to refill your extra lives/hourglasses.

Playing: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle
Waiting:Last Class Heroes, Chaos Rings 3, Starships

I thought gyromancer was less "Temple run" and more "puzzle quest". Either way, I dislike you, squeenix.

Erm, no, Gyromancer is nothing like what I was describing, not even remotely. I'm talking about the concept of an actual endless runner in which you seamlessly pass through the story/world of an entire existing FF game (FF4, 6, 7, 8, etc.), not a slow-paced RPG/match-3 hybrid.

Genius. This will make a killing. And they'll still get the rest of you suckers who are turning your noses up at it, falling over yourselves to hand over $20 for the next "proper" FF they port over. Bravo.

This is a good idea... it would actually treat the franchise with humor and reverence.

Well said. Although it's unclear what the target audience for All the Bravest is. Are they gunning for retro RPG fans who have played each FF game and are familiar enough to recognize their favorite characters but always secretly craved a more action oriented spin on the franchise despite having invested 100s of hours playing the original incarnations?

Honestly, I hope this game somehow makes Squeenix go bankrupt like Final Fantasy: Spirits Within did, so we can stop seeing the endless remixes of Final Fantasy crap on the app store, and I can jump all over the dead rump of a husk of a crappy body that has become Square.

They're gunning for the lowest common denominator of course.
