Chrono Trigger is considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time, and this updated remaster of the legendary SNES JRPG perfectly brings back the classic game to the iPhone. Everything from the excellent graphics, comfortable control scheme, solid frame rate, great cutscenes which still hold up to this day, great decision making choices that can impact the story, phenomenal and strategic boss battles, incredible characters and fantastic writing and storytelling, great use of time travel, all topped off with one of the greatest video game soundtracks of all time, and you get a game that will forever remain timeless. 10/10
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.
Chrono Trigger stands the test of time
Firstly I never write reviews on apps. Mainly because most apps have ridiculous in app purchases for a very shallow experience which seems to be the new business model.
Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI are the two greatest top down retro rpgs of all time.
Chrono trigger was created by the holy trinity of the guy who created Dragon Ball and does the artwork for this game Akira Toriyama and one of the Final Fantasy directors as well as soundtrack by Final Fantasy legend Nobuo Uematsu.
The gameplay is simple to master and it is a retro game. It is incredibly charming both in character and plot and I would recommend this app to anyone that enjoyed the Pokemon series or Gameboy Final Fantasies.
