I've been playing some more, and the swipe based battle actions are really starting to grow on me. Even more. I'm starting to wonder why no other iphone rpgs have that control scheme...

This looks rather good.

I don't really have time for rpg's, but if this ever drops price I might get it just to try it.

The title is not good though - makes it sound like some generic Pokemon ripoff or something, which it clearly isn't.

Just left a review on iTunes. I sure hope that anyone who has just discovered JRPGs through Final Fantasy I and II manages to find this gem.

This is a fantastic and well designed RPG. After playing the quick tutorial, the controls and menu interaction feel natural. The presentation of this game is well done. Everything about it.. the story, the gameplay, music... make it feel like a standout RPG, the kind where right from the beginning you just know you're gonna be getting into something good. It all has a retro feel to it, but in no way does that subtract from the game's good style.

So I'm having a lot of fun playing this. I like the swipe combat system used in the game better then the regular method used in most of the other RPG games. To me the gameplay is more engaging than Final Fantasy, which I got last week and think is a great game too, but for my own personal taste Monster RPG 2 is more interesting. But I've always been more into Suikoden and Secret of Mana type RPGs more than the early FF's. Recommend this game to all RPG fans.

Arg so wanna buy this, but just picked up Lunar remake...

I'm waiting for someone that has completed this game to give their opinion. Want to see how the pacing, and difficulty goes over the game.

Maybe I should focus....:
Haha, you're just the same as me. Just some games that I'm still playing:
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Disgaea 3
  • Dragon Age: Origins
  • Brutal Legend
  • Valkyria Chronicles
  • Metal Gear Solid 4
  • Final Fantasy

You also reminded me that I need to play Final Fantasy VIII again.

P.S.

The first update should be available shortly. The summary of changes is small, but I've address most of the issues reported in this thread:

* Easier to click buttons: pause/cancel triangle, battle action buttons, "OK" and other popup dialog buttons.
* Fix some collision boundries in the underground map
* Quicker response from press-and-hold popups: Save state popups, player info in battle, item description
* New icon

Quick question: is there a way to cancel an action in battle once it is selected. I've had a couple of instances where I've hit "Defend" or "Attack" by mistake and can't figure out how to back up a step to make a different choice.

The update sounds great. I hope that the new icon showcases the pixel art.

The cancel action is always "shake" or tap the little red triangle in the top left corner.
