Great game and great free update

Just to let people know, that this game is amazing and a true testament of square's golden age.
Great story and great memorable characters. This is the type of game that would’ve made a great anime series.
Updated for free. I bought this game several years ago when it was just a cheap port for £6.99 but square have taken some of the fans’ feedback and improved this version to a standard that’s on par with the ds version which now include the animated cutscenes which were originally missing from the initial iOS port.
It’s great that the update was free as well which I do appreciate a lot, so square keep up the good work.
It seems you’re on a vanity project to clean up and modernise your older games which I doth my cap to.

The sound quality is great; a massive improvement on what it was. The touch controls are more responsive which is another improvement.
The visuals do look better overall but isn’t a massive jump they’ve just made the sprites more HD friendly.
It’s not a remake that fans asked for but it’s a remaster we were given and it’s great. It’s good to see square doing something that is a welcome change for once. Well done guys

Chrono trigger review

This game has had only minor tweaks and stays true to the SNES classic. The graphics have remained unchanged so there isn’t the disgusting ff6 smartphone port look. The soundtrack is astounding and I’d often find myself just sitting there listening. I’ve never encountered any: lag, slowdown, glitches or other problems like that. I never had an extremely unfair fight that caused me to rage quit. I heavily recommend this game to any square enix fan or any RPG fan in general.

Very cool

Playing with my ps4 controller trough my apple tv, then I can save the game in the cloud and play in my phone... really cool. Also is very easy to play and the graphics are better than if you play on emulator at your laptop or the original version. I wouldn't pay much more for the game, so fear price for what they offer (I hope they will do Final Fantasy VIII also) 😄
