Great Game, Slightly Buggy Port
Let me begin by saying that this collection is amazing. The amount of content in the first game alone feels worth the whole price so having two more games after that is just incredible. The story is excellent, the characters are memorable, the pace and tension-building are top notch, and the gameplay can be quite fun. I would highly recommend this game on this or any other platform based on content alone.
As for the iOS port specifically, it’s a bit buggy. Sound effects (and occasionally even music) like to disappear without warning or reason and won’t come back until the app is completely reset. The music track sometimes doubles up and won’t reset to normal until you exit and re-enter the app. The screen rotation occasionally gets locked and won’t unlock until the app is reset. Lastly, though it’s not a bug as far as I can tell, the game doesn’t actually change the real screen rotation no matter how you hold your device. The game looks like it’s horizontal, for instance, but normal phone controls like the notifications menu are all vertically oriented at all times. This can be annoying occasionally and is a truly strange design choice.
Overall, the convenience of having these games on the go is well worth the bugs, but I hope that someday this game gets patched so that it’s a bit more stable. Well worth the purchase, regardless. After playing the first two trials for free, I was hooked and never looked back.
I haven’t bought anything but this has definitely won me over in terms of how much I enjoy this. If they cleaned up the menu a bit and fixed a bug where I can be guaranteed sound without any Bluetooth device when I disconnect said device in game, that would be great. I suppose I use my speaker and headphones mostly though so no skin off my nose. As far as purchases, I’m not sure I can pull seventeen bucks right now, and saving three bucks sounds nice if I buy the whole trilogy because I might buy the whole thing anyway. BUT as far as the initial game it’s conceivable that I can pull of 20 bucks at l a later date gradually over time, so then the only question is whether the original ace attorney game is worth it with only three episodes left for six bucks, a 2$:1 episode ratio. I suppose what would determine THAT is the amount of trials held in court each episode, yet just knowing that would spoil story.
As to reiterate on above, I’m also trying to buy a Fire Emblem, (not that shameful excuse of an app,) or Splatoon 2, a new 3ds xl, and Switch online services, not to mention Luigi’s Mansion or bowsers inside story for 3ds. So it’s conceivable that I wouldn’t get back to buying the trilogy. 😖
Ergo, (😁👍) my indecisiveness. I’ll ask a fan who’s knowledgeable about this. In a way, this is a problem that one can love to have. 👌🧐
An obsession was born
I LOVE Ace Attorney. And it’s all thanks to this app!!
As a 15-year-old kid who missed the bus for the original DS version and didn’t really ever hear of this game till it came out on the App Store, this app is literally the first contact I made with something I now talk about on the daily. It’s exactly the game I’ve been looking for for a long time, and it got me into forensics and mock trial at school. I know it’s got some bugs, and after getting the third game for my DSi, I do think it’s a little cleaner in its original version, I think this app still embodies the best part of the game (and is basically the only thing I do on my phone). The convenience of it being an app outweighs most of the glitches.
The only thing that really bugged me was the problem with Rise From the Ashes where the luminol was ineffective, and I basically have to skip ahead in order to move on. Also, I used to be able to see achievements on Game Center, but I can’t access this part of the app anymore.
All in all, it’s not perfect, but it’s my favorite game on my phone or elsewhere!! :3
