Shining in the Darkness

Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention

The Continent of Rune has slumbered in peace for 50 generations. A horde of invaders swarm across the border, while a dragon that has slept for centuries stirs in its tomb. Only the King’s youngest swordsman and his war party can defy the Dark Dragon’s evil power and crush the mighty army!
• Control up to 10 different characters at once
• Increase their skills and attributes through strategy, combat, and exploration!
• Search through eight brilliant scenarios
• Sub-quests and imaginative sequences make every game a new adventure!

Shining Force II

In the eerie Cave of the Past, a mischievous thief tampers with the mystical Stones of light and Dark. The Stones once imprisoned the Evil of All Ages. Now the deadly Zeon is unleashed. His rage will hurl the galaxy into eternal darkness — unless the Shining Force can stop him!

SF: Good, Bad and Ugly

This is regarding only Shining Force as I haven’t got round to the other two yet.

- Price: £1.99 is an exceptional price for so many hours of entertainment.
- Gameplay: a perfect title for a phone port. The style of play loses nothing from being on a touchscreen unlike many other SEGA titles.
- 3 in 1: nice having one app not three.

- I bought this before in its previous release. Re-releasing and charging again from the same company is not good.
- Controls: the D-Pad is v annoying. Oversensitive but works a little better if you reposition it nearer the middle for some reason.

- Save system. ‘Now you can save anytime!’ No. You can save when you have a decent internet connection and are logged into Game Center. Want to play this on a tube, plane, boat or anywhere with bad signal? You can’t. I play games on my phone during commutes which involve a tube ie no signal. If you move to a different app and leave the game running in the background it quickly closes meaning you’ll lose your progress.
Added to this, there’s been no thought added to what happens if you follow the in game save procedure. If you do, you get to a point where the game tells you to take a break and you have no choice but to reset your console. On the phone you do that by resetting the app. But of course you haven’t saved your game.

Overall a great game and glad to have it again for a good price.

Trip down memory lane. Brilliant!!!!

I brought sf1 first time round on I pad and for some reason sega withdrew it from uk App Store. However I always kept it on my I pad because I had paid for it. A brilliant game back in the day and a great convert to the I pad. Now this re release brilliant 3 games in one, sf1,sf2 and sf in darkness which I haven’t played yet. Just getting into sf2 a great convert to I pad. I haven’t experienced any problems playing at all. Save works only a bit of a cheat you can save anytime. On the original you could only save in the church. But will make it easier for new players, as you can save right before a battle. One chap says it hangs when you take a break. I remember just wait when you get the girl with the book it will eventually reset to the start. Be patient. Brilliant sega well worth buying this please release some more old classics. Thank you

Great games, problem fixed!

Delighted to finally be able to play these three games on iOS.

However, I have bought the IAP to remove the ads, but the app keeps on forgetting that I have done so. When I try and repurchase (as there’s no restore option), the app hangs on “Processing’.

This is a real pain; the only way around it is to save my game (watching irritating ads first), uninstall the app, reinstall, repurchase and then reload the game.

This problem also affects (at least) Phantasy Star II.

Please fix; supporting an app with IAP should make the experience more pleasant, not more annoying.

Addendum: when attempting to report this issue from within the app, I was treated to the pleasure of completing *18 CAPCHAS* before my submission was sent. And, obviously, had another 30 second ad afterwards before I could resume my game. I am now able to correctly identify a wide range of traffic lights, bicycles, “cross-walks”, buses and other obscure articles of road furniture, while narrowly avoiding throwing my phone out of a third floor window.



New version has fixed the problem.

Now impressed again.
