FINAL FANTASY VI for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is here!
FINAL FANTASY VI first debuted in 1994 as the sixth installment in the iconic FINAL FANTASY series. Innovations included the ability to play all the main characters as the game's protagonist, and to this day, its epic story intertwining each of their fates is still highly rated and wildly popular. The characters' dramatic performances are also highly rated, including the catastrophe occurring midway through, which delivers a particular emotional jolt to players.
With plenty of abilities available and the magicite system for controlling spells/summoning, players can develop their characters any way they want. This was also the first FINAL FANTASY game to include the Ultima Weapon, the most powerful sword of all and a recurring item in subsequent titles within the series.

The War of Magi left little but ashes and misery in its wake. Even magic itself had vanished from the world. Now, a thousand years later, humankind has remade the world through the power of iron, gunpowder, steam engines, and other machines and technologies.
But there is one who possesses the lost power of magic--a young girl name Terra whom the evil Empire has kept enslaved in an effort to harness her power as weapon. This leads to a fateful meeting between Terra and a young man named Locke. Their harrowing escape from the Empire's clutches sets in motion a series of events that touches countless lives and leads to one inevitable conclusion.

Widely hailed as one of the greatest role-playing games of all time, Final Fantasy VI features a heartwarming story with complex, endearing characters and innovative combat that showcases teammate-specific strategies and skills. This Square Enix masterpiece has been recreated with an all-new art style and entirely rebalanced for an on-the-go experience. Whether you’re a longtime fan or playing it for the first time, Final Fantasy VI is a classic 2D role-playing game you shouldn’t miss.
Being my very favorite game, I was so excited to find that this is available for mobile, and the port is absolutely fantastic. The controls work very, very well (once you get used to the difference if you’ve played this on console) and the graphics update is very pleasant. I have ONE complaint that is really kind of glaring, so please, if anyone can tell me if I am doing something wrong, or if Square gets word of this, please advise:
I have not found a good way to self-target. This is an extremely minor, if not insignificant issue UNTIL you get to the Cultist Tower where casting reflect on someone in the party to reflect spells off of is one of the primary ways to attack enemies that are reflected themselves. I have been annihilated multiple times due to trying to target a spell on my own party and, even if you press perfectly on your own party, it will still end up targeting the enemy and reflect back at you. Again, if there is a better way to do this, please let me know! This app would be an easy 5 star if this were different, as it is my one and only complaint.
One of the greatest RPGs in the history of gaming
I cannot even begin to say the amount of amazing things this game brings us. Yes it may start out a little bit weird and controls and battle mechanics are a little wonky but once you get used to them or completely change them in the options then the game can be really enjoyable. Many people say games aren't art, but that would be one of the biggest lies you have heard ever. Interesting characters and villains, emotional and deep moments, and of course possibly the most incredible story in a game. I would even par this game with Planescape: Torment, and if you don't know what that is, then you also have to experience it. Again I cannot praise the story enough, it's truly one of the best. Some parts are DEFINITELY going to be difficult, and you WILL need to level up in order to beat them, movement is not the greatest, some parts are definitely going to be annoying, but if you can get past these small but not game breaking problems then you will enjoy it.
This on my personal opinion is even better than Final Fantasy 7. I'm not saying FF7 is bad, in fact it's FAR FAR from bad but FF6 triumphs it story wise.
Words cannot describe the joy I feel with this game ^_^.
P.S. CREATE MORE THAN AT LEAST 2 SAVES, I have seen people lose progress because they simply have only kept one save, so please keep that in mind!
And as I said earlier you WILL need to level up for some parts of the game as the bosses will get harder and harder.
