Secret of Mana 9+
July 18, 2014
Gamepad support has been added.
Initially released in Japan in 1993, Secret of Mana took the world by storm with its innovative real-time battle system and gorgeously rendered world. It continues to stand out among other action RPGs for its seamless gameplay that anyone from beginner to veteran can enjoy.
One of the most memorable elements of the Mana series is the Ring Command menu system. With the single press of a button, a ring-shaped menu appears on the screen, where players can use items, change weapons, and do a variety of other actions without needing to switch screens. This Ring Command menu system for which the Mana series is so well known was first introduced in Secret of Mana and has since appeared in most games in the series.
Play as Randi and his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they adventure all around the world. At the center of our epic story is the mystical power of Mana. Battle the empire in its quest for control of Mana. Befriend the eight elementals who wield the forces of nature itself. Numerous encounters await at every turn.

Ratings and Reviews
One glaring problem...
An overall quite fun game. I gad been wanting to play it for a while, and it works wonderfully as a mobile game. The reason I won’t go above 2 stars is that the app programmers committed what should be considered the cardinal sin: the app won’t let you listen to music or podcasts while playing. When I want to play a game on mobile, I often am listening to a podcast or I am killing time while waiting which often means listening to music. This game is useless for both since I am forced to pick between outside audio and the actual game. After doing some investigating, it sounds like this is a problem with all of their other remakes as well, so it looks like U will be staying away from Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior. :(
This old app is got to go and start bringing in the new 3D one
As much it really pains me to rate just 1 star to this app game, but I can honestly say that I really don't like old script of this story very much. The graphics are too blurry as its making my head dizzy everywhere I go. I cannot even change directions while dashing, and the power meter just went down to 0% in the instant as I let go of the dash button. I get miffed by the time my charge strike got interrupted by enemy's attack easily, especially when I unleashed it. And the color of the world map is just too warm as sunset, which doesn't match the color of the blue sky.
Since now that Trials of Mana is available on mobile, why not include Secret of Mana 3D port on mobile as well and replace this old version with it? Adventures of Mana, Secret of Mana, Trials of Mana, all three games in one collection would be a perfect 3D Mana Trilogy on mobile that way. Although I may have unfortunately bought this game before the time when 3D was released, but at least I can comment my review in hoping for the better replacement. There is no rush, but do think this over.
Broken port. Don’t buy this!
Ever since the iOS has been updated to 13 this game is ~1/8 the size and only appears in the bottom left screen. Devs have known for months now but haven’t done a thing to fix this problem.
Update One: Its been a couple months since my initial negative review. The problem still persists, though it started at THE LAUNCH OF iOS 13, and they had the gall to run a sale of this of game even though the game doesn’t work with iOS 13. Apple hasn’t pulled it from the store nor has SE, obviously. Horrible business practices, from both sides, in my opinion. I can basically feel the giant middle finger pressed against my face from both companies. Anyway, to wrap up. Save your money for a different game or until they fix this.
Update Two: The fix for iOS 13 is here and well, the game works completely fine near as I can tell. I haven’t run into any bugs so far. It’s a wonderful game when working and I’d recommend picking it up if you’re a fan of it or have never played. The reason I won’t go higher in my rating is for other issues.
