Fascinating game, of an open-world, player-directed design lineage that we rarely see in JRPGs anymore. This port isn't perfect, but it's solid and mostly well considered. Occasional bugs and crashes are present, but I found that keeping everything updated helped. Terrific localization, from the group responsible for the writing style seen in all other modern Dragon Quest installments.
FYI: This is a port of the Japan exclusive Super Famicom version (Super Nintendo in Japan). I have played Dragon Quest III on the GBC, and this is almost the same. There are a few things the Super Famicom version did not have, that the GBC version did because the GBC version was made after the Super Famicom remake. The game plays really well for a smart phone port. The controls are comfortable. I don't play smart phone games because of touch screen controls, but I caved and got this. The graphics and music are the exact same as the Super Famicom version, so its beauty was carried over well. I highly recommend starting with DQIII if you have never played a Dragon Quest game. Great game, and one of thr best in the entire mainline series.
I enjoyed this game very much. I enjoyed the first two DQ games too. I've played all of the Dragon warrior games on the NES and game boy color. This was a great port of a wonderful of an old game. I shall be playing the rest of the Dragon Quest games on my phone also. I think some people look for shortcomings in these ports. I look to have some fun and enjoy myself
The game is great,I have no problems on the Galaxy S7,the only thing that would've make the game GREATER would be the battle animation of the monsters just like the one on the GameBoy Color,come on SquareEnix,it's your same game!! It's okay that you took off the CloudSave so the game can work properly but you didn't had to take out the battle animation for the monsters,I know you can do better,you have A LOT of people who LOVE this game,me included,so can you guys at least bring back the battle animation for the monsters on your next update?? Please??!!!...
Works just fine on asus memopad with lolipop This is an excellent game that works just fine on my device. My only complaints are install size, the graphics not being any better than the Super Nintendo for the size, and the portait only setup. I know control options are not that big on a game like this but at least give us orientation or even keyboard or remote controls for those of us that play on devices connected to keyboard or external displays. But since that won't happen you get no more than 3 from me.
Don't pay for this. They removed enemy anination, I don't see any of the art they talk about in the description and they don't support landscape mode (phone sideways) so it's uncomfortable to play. Waste of money for something you can emulate better for free. Gimme a break.
This classic generation-spanning epic is available at last for portable devices!
