Ah, here we go. The saga begins.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I preferred an ff7 port, and the rest of the series that could, but i'd take any SE JRPG too.

Just a gentle reminder: this game is 28 years old, basically the first JRPG, and it feels it. Keep your expectations at the right level.

Lol. This quote couldn't be more perfect!

Also, I'm really liking the portrait view of these games. It's something different.

Sounds like my cup of tea - 28 years old, retro heaven !

But seriously its good to see where this famous franchise started, the price is good, small size it seems, i'll be interested to play this. Presume it'll be very 'Ultima-ish' with the map/towns etc.

Funny you should mention that...

Back to Dragon Quest, as Shaun said, this game's the first proper JRPG game. Should I still try it? Square Enix are still gonna port the other Dragon Quest to iOS, so is this still picking up with them releasing?
