* Entering or leaving vehicles such as cars and the Garden may occasionally get your character stuck between the vehicle and terrain features, or freeze the vehicle in place. This seems to happen more often when you leave your vehicle in close proximity to impassable terrain, or when you try to enter or leave your vehicle during certain scripted events. Currently, the only fix for this is to reload a previously saved game, so please make sure to save your progress often.
* Some locations may be difficult to navigate using the Speed Boost (x3). We advise you to turn off this feature in such cases.

Ratings and Reviews
A million times, thank you!
Wow, what a trip down memory lane! I’ve been wanting to have this game in my pocket for years now. I never got to finish it as a kid, because I scratched my fourth disc. And I don’t own any other consoles, so for me this is a dream come true.
Playing on an XR with the latest version of iOS, and everything is running smoothly. The soundtrack is beautiful as always, I’m not having any issues with cutscenes, and it works great on airplane mode. Just a heads up, it’s not updated to be widescreen, so maybe that will bother some people, but for someone who played this in 1999, it’s the only version I know.
Looking forward to controller support and cloud saves in the future, but for now it’s not an issue. So far, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase! Thanks, devs!
This isn’t for me
The only reason I have this game on my phone is for my 4.5 year old son. He LOVES the intro and the music and will see it and listen to it over and over. Initially, we would play it on the PS when he was 1.5 to get him to calm down so that we could change his clothes, diapers, or feed him since he’s autistic. But we soon realized that that prevented us from watching anything else since he really liked and wanted it to be playing constantly. Now we got smart and we have the game downloaded on our phones and switches. A huge shout out and thank you to the game developer and composer since my son is big fan! Y’all didn’t know it but y’all are lifesavers!!!
Favorite Final Fantasy, but underwhelmed.
This is by far my favorite final fantasy out of all of them. It also happens to be the first I have ever played. As stoked as I was to be playing it again on my phone, it is seriously under developed as a remake. Upgraded graphics, and playing it on my phone as opposed to an old console is great, but emulators have been allowing that for years, and with much better playability due to game hacking within the emulators. It wasn’t until i moved to IPhone that i lost the ability to play it on the phone. Adding a new game plus feature seems like it would be an easy feature to add to stand out above and beyond emulators. I don’t normally hack games, but I have spent 100’s of hours playing this game to have all cards, weapons, level stats, gf and abilities, and rare items. New game plus would make it so I don’t have to do that every time I want to play through again.
