Secret of Mana? Worthwhile Purchase?

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from people who played the original on the snes. Is it a worthwhile port or did it get lost in translation? Thanks!

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.

Yes. The controls are a little sticky sometimes, but otherwise it plays perfectly. Doesn't have retina display, but it looks pretty good anyway.

Easily, yes. I had forgotten how awesome this game was.
