Worth it. This emulator has tons of options to mess around with to fit your play style, my personal favorite being the external display option. This allows you to have the entirety of your phone work as the bottom screen, and then you can cast the top screen top to be displayed on a second device. Very cool. I would love to see a 3DS emulator have this ability on the app store, but it seems that DraStic is a cut above the rest, being the only emulator to have this amazing feature.

If you're still fixing/updating this app, please fix the settings that adjust where the emulator picks up screen presses. For both the D-Pad and the A, B, X, Y buttons, the, I think they're the "deadzone" setting sliders are very confusing when trying to properly line up where the buttons are on the screen and where you actually have to touch the screen for it to pick up what it should pick up, as all of those settings seem to move everything at the same time.

Unfortunately, I bought this app specifically to play Final Fantasy Tactics A2... There appears to be a bug going back YEARS which causes crashes when actions are taken. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it, but the game crashes right back to the app's start screen. I lost just over an hour of progress the first time, made it back to where I was just to get the crash again in the same battle. I don't want to be forced to save the game after every click. Devs know and don't seem to care.
