A remodeled 2D take on the second game in the world-renowned FINAL FANTASY series! Enjoy the timeless story told through charming retro graphics. All the magic of the original, with improved ease of play.

Behold the beautiful and sometimes tragic twists of fate that await you on your adventure.

Ratings and Reviews
No controller support? How am I going to eat tomorrow?! 😭
Wish there was controller support. However, all things considered, I think this is excellent. I like the soundtrack better than the PSP-port which was not bad in of itself. I am happier that the difficulty and in-game pricing is more like the original, making it challenging. The whole “select-cancel trick” does not work & there is no leveling down as far as I can tell. However, I will take it. Thanks Square-Enquix!
Also, do not listen to the haters! IDK what some are talking about, saying that the iPhone & iPad apps are separate purchases because they are not as you can see from the screenshots. Plus, while there is no controller support (yet?), the touch control is not bad ➕there is an option to click where you want to go with your finger or using of an assistive device (such as an iPad trackpad).
Nightmare to play…
I’m a die-hard FF fan. I’ve played every core game when it was released and have spent countless dollars on ports and sequels. I do like that this port has new graphics and music, but that’s really all it’s got going for it. Also, no controller support is pretty odd for a game like this.
So why does my subject say “Nightmare to play”? Because you get attacked every other step without a breath — I had no problems getting 100% bestiary going straight from start to finish with a couple detours here and there. I don’t think this was intended. Also, enemy status effects apply to you 100% of the time, and equipment that previously prevented status effects only work some of the time. The danged Coeurls at the end of the game 100% KO your characters without any reduction from things like Protect Rings. If you get ambushed (which also happens far more than it should) by a group of 6 Coeurls, you’re looking at an automatic Game Over. And this happens a lot. Good thing they added Quick Save because you have to do it after every other fight just to make sure you don’t get wiped out by RNG (same goes for monsters that paralyze — ambush is a Game Over almost every time). With the increased battle encounter chances and messed up chances of effects, it almost seems like there’s some global chance modifier that is applied to everything that is set too high.
Anyway. I’d wait for patches unless you like playing frustrated.
Almost perfect! Just needs controller support!!
I am a long time FINAL FANTASY fan. I bought the FF2 and FF3 pixel remasters for the iPhone and although I love these versions…They are inferior to the Steam versions due to not being controller supported. What better way to feel the nostalgia and magic from these classics then the feeling of playing them with a controller (like the originals) as the Steam versions have controller support. Please update that. As a person with a BackBone controller, it would be the best way to play these games and then my 4/5 star rating would turn into a 5/5 star rating, but until then these games will get an almost perfect score. Hopefully Square Enix realizes the rally for controller support and do whatever needs to be done. Thank you 😊
