Let’s go back to when this title hit America!
This is really the best game ever made hands down (90s), and this is what transformed so many other games to replicate its authenticity! And yet Nothing can beat it because it is what fans wanted in all the other games? they will never replicate it and meet its match. Even if this game came out on the current phones we have now, Yes I approve of this game no matter what.
It’s my love life and success I had as a kid and remembered all the sweat and sleepless nights achieving the most difficult of bosses and actually using my wits to improve my skills as a gamer. And actually studied and talked with friends about skills to use and actually learning spells through guides and handbooks that didn’t come out til new game magazines gave us hints and tricks to learn that YES more stuff in the castle was to be explored!!!!!! And yet. As an adult looking back at this game and downloading it made me look at my childhood and see what I have become today. Sure problems are here and there on this download and touching the screen and not enhancing the screen bigger and making the graphics a tide more tighter to today’s standards would help it. But I just want to say thank you for releasing this title to my hands. As I can see my inner childhood grow brighter!
Love the game but fix the controls.
I’m sure other reviews have said this but the game is a great port and I’m looking forward to getting into it... as soon as they fix the awful controls (or lack thereof). You can’t just slap the imprint of an old school control controller, make its activation areas hypersensitive and call it a day. The game feels clunky, unresponsive and needlessly difficult with its current movement system. Please add controller support as well as on screen customization and button mapping. The left thumb movement pad should not be fixed. This alone would infinitely improve the game. It’ll get 5 stars once they update.
Update: Still waiting for them to fix the controls. No reason not to given all the complaints.
Second update: So I realized they really designed this to be used with an external controller. You need to buy a Bluetooth controller and download an app that allows you to customize your controllers input and locations. Something like ShootingPlusV3. With those two additional times this game was a real treat. I’m giving it 5 stars now. But really, they should have said something about using a controller!
Making a great game slightly less great
Let me start by saying I love this game and I’ve been playing games a long time. It would have been great if the graphics were a little more detailed, especially when you have to read text on screen. That is a minor issue. The bigger issue is the control and placement. The direction control is to large and partially encroaches on the screen making it hard to see enemies coming. Simplify it by turning it into a stick in a circle allowing you to control direction keeping your finger down on the screen instead of clumsily sliding it hoping you stay on the direction pad. The other issue is the sizing of the action buttons. Nice to have a large jump button, except the others are a little small. It may work better to have four dual size buttons in an up/down/left/right placement instead. It’s almost like they didn’t plan for use on touch screen in hopes people would just play with a compatible controller. I honestly think fixing the resolution to be more friendly to the pixel count and cleaning up the controls would make this a 5 star game! I’ll hang in looking for improvements, but it is nice to see an A+ title make it to IOS at a $3.00 price tag.
