squarezero's comments:
A 400+ Mb download and at $9.99 half the price of the PSP version.

EDIT:
The Dev has come up with a way to keep fans updated with what happens with the game on the App Store and had the idea for fans to post screenshots with the game moments they have problems with on the game's Official Fan Page http://www.facebook.com/CrimsonGemSaga. Technically you send it over email from your device and then they put it on the fan page to resolve their problems.



EDIT2: Video taken by user Chuck showing battles and some voiceovers. Played on an iPad

That's what I was hoping. I re-installed the game after I got iOS 6. At the initiation of the third or fourth battle, the game crashed like it did before.

Not sure if this game ever got fixed(and sorry if me bumping this brings somebody's hopes up).

But for those with a PSP or Vita that want to play this game(bug free), it just dropped down to $7.49 in the US PSN Store.

I'd pay some developer at least $20 to play this one on my iPhone again. So, if anyone can crack the code and resubmit it under the name CGS, name your price!

It's still broken, man. Don't buy it. It's never getting fixed.

lol by some small miracle maybe it will start to work again on iOS 8?
Doubt it though. Too bad, it was a great game while it lasted.

Playing: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle

It technically still works on iOS 7. You have to let the intro movie (i.e. a black screen) completely play through (if I remember right it has no sound), and then the start menu will appear. The only thing is there is NO way to skip the into movie, so you'll have to stare at a black screen for about a minute or two each and every time you'd like to play the game. I decided that it just wasn't worth it since there are plenty of other great RPGs I still need to play on the AppStore. So, being that I deleted it a while ago, I can't say whether this "trick" still works or not with iOS 8. Either way, I just wanted to share what I knew about it. It's really a shame that this game didn't get better support because it was actually one of the more interesting RPGs I'd played.
