FINAL FANTASY III -- now on iPad!
First released in 1990, FINAL FANTASY III was the first title in the FINAL FANTASY series to become a million-seller, establishing once and for all that Square Enix's classic RPG saga was here to stay.
The full 3D remake released in 2006 duplicated the original's success, selling over a million copies worldwide.
FINAL FANTASY III was a hallmark of innovation for the entire series, from the job system that lets characters change classes at any time to the ability to summon powerful creatures such as Shiva and Bahamut.
When darkness falls and the land is robbed of light, four youths are chosen by the crystals to set forth on a journey to save the world.

Ratings and Reviews
Not controller compatible
Great game, but while almost all the other ff games are compatible with game pads, this one isn't. Hope they'll fix it soon.
Would highly recommend
First of all, this is the single best game I have ever bought for my iPad or iPod. The only reason why I hesitated to go for it was the horrendously high price tag. I'm glad I went for it, but I think it should be a lot less in price. For me, this is the only down side to this great purchase.
Having only played the later final fantasy games, (7 onwards) it was a great treat being taken back to the more retro style of graphics and gameplay.
If you wipe out, there is no 'just try it again' like they have in other games, and characters that are knocked out, are not instantly revived for the next battle. Phoenix down and running back to town is vital! Encounters are harder, and grinding is a must. If you do not enjoy this style of gameplay, you may find is game not to your tastes. Personally, I enjoy the difficulty.
My final point is don't worry when you see the credits roll after the first hour of the game. I saw this and was thinking to myself "I paid £12 for THAT!" don't worry, it does continue. Credits roll after the intro to this game.
Tl;dr: if you can spare the money, this is a must have game for your iPad. If you can't, save up or take out a loan, then buy it.
Enjoyable plays well
Enjoyable game, on par with the ds version on a bigger screen. Well worth the money
