Great game that would be more popular if updated

I never got around to playing the DQ series on NES or PS2, though the iOS version has definitely shown me what I’ve missed out on. Every bit as good as Zelda IMHO. The one major drawback, and something that could be so easy to fix — it’s a very clunky control system to play on iPads (especially iPad Pro) — at the very least, of you could make it where the directional pad is off to the left or right , it would turn this into a hand cramp magnet , into something that’s quite a pleasure to use. It would be just a minor update, taking less than an hour I imagine, yet could improve the experience drastically for gamers.

I don’t mind that the orientation is stuck in vertical as much as some, but if you could fix that one gripe, I would be much more willing to invest in the other DQ games. DQ deserves every bit as much attention as the final fantasy series, and would benefit even more if you could eventually add MFI controller support, but at the very least, please adjust the position of directional controls .. maybe even add a dual joystick that appears where player puts thumbs, one for direction, the other, for camera. Thanks!

Brilliant as ever, portrait mode a massive pain

DQ8 is easily the most visually gorgeous game in the franchise: vast open world, lovely attention to detail, cutscenes that ooze personality, and Toriyama’s iconic art style.

This app continues the series tradition of extremely high-quality mobile ports—I’ve had no crashes, no lag, just smooth sailing all the way. My only complaint is that the fixed portrait mode, a longtime quirk of the mobile versions, becomes wildly annoying in ways it hasn’t been in the past. Previous games have all been top-down, so while the aspect ratio has always been a little restrictive it has never truly gotten in the way; however in this eighth installment even the ability to toggle the camera can’t make visibility any less like looking through a crack in a door and it makes navigating frustrating. I don’t know how big a job it would be to offer a landscape orientation, but it would be deeply appreciated.

Amazing update for iPhone X!!!

I’ve had this game for awhile and always have the bad luck of never being able to finish it. But since I got a newer iPhone I decided to start it up again, to my surprise a few days later there was a massive update taking full capabilities of the iPhone X models screen and processing power. Full screen support, amazing resolution, and even upping the FPS!!! If you’ve ever had a doubt on buying the game before on one of the X models you won’t be disappointed it looks and feels great! P.S. they also fixed the problem with the cloud saves. Thanks Square this was an awesome update long in the waiting, I hope you get a chance to do these kind of updates for most of your other games, people will definitely be glad to buy.😁👍
