Ys Chronicles 1

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I purchased this. The only reason I did is because Chronicles 2 was released and my RPG friends have been pushing me to get into Ys for years now... and this happened to be on sale. It is kinda strange that it took me this long to grab it, as I love all of DotEmu's ports, but around the time it came to the AppStore, I was falling out of RPGs and getting more into Roguelikes and Tactical RPGs. Anyway, once you get the whole 'bumping' attack mechanics down (I'd recommend watching a few YT vids if you're having trouble - I also clicked with it more when I removed the Free movement and set it at 8 directions), the game really seems to open up (while still remaining streamlined for an RPG) - and it's carried over fantastically into the awesome boss fights. Yes, it's short - for an RPG - around 10 hours - but that's kind of what finally made me buy the game (aside from the sale) - knowing I'll be able to play and beat the game within a week instead of dumping months of my life into yet another game. Anyway, I recommend this one... it's great.

Very well done

Usually porting retro games to iOS is a waste of time. Very few control well with a touch interface. I've been disappointed on more than one occasion, but this game actually controls really well on my iPhone! I've been enjoying ys 1 very much and I honestly recommend this to any retro gaming fans on the go.

I have encountered the, "door fails to open after killing boss mumber 1" bug, so incapable of moving forward. Great game, seeming to be a terrible port.

To fix this bug you have to save your game, then force close the app and restart.
