This is the one that got me into Dragon Quest. IV-VI are all great ports of DS (unlike the FF ones which aren't always very good) and run on the same engine so you really can't go wrong with any of them.
The game itself is very good. Classic jRPG gameplay, a deep class system and great-for-the-time graphics and sound. But I have to take off two stars for the glitch that kept cloud save from working for two and a half months. It's fine now, but who knows when another bug will come along? And if you look at FF7, you'll see that sometimes Squeenix Android bugs just never get fixed. Buy at your own risk!
Bugged and support is useless. It played OK until I got control of the ship. I couldn't get off so I contacted support and they said they weren't a walkthrough service. It was a bug and they're just too lazy to admit it
One of the great mobile games I fell in love with the Dragon Quest franchise after playing DQ9 (Sentinels of The Starry Skies) on the DS. As mobile games go, this has to be amongst the best around. The game is epic, compulsive, & has likeable characters.
Cloud save Can't even grab my cloud save off my new devices, because it keeps saying that Google play services have failed, as well as my signal not being good.. tried for all 3 dragon quest games 5, 6, and 8.
TRUE LOVE *Fix cloud save I LOVE THE DRAGON QUEST GAMES SO MUCH IM WRITING IN ALL CAPS. I REALLY LIKE THE CLOUD SAVE AND THE ABILITY TO PLAY OFFLINE 'AFTER YOU LAUNCH THE GAME WHILE CONNECTED ONCE' I Hope They AdD Dq7... ThAt WoUlD bE AwSoMe!!! OMFG!*joyfully dies
Fixed a bug.
This classic generation-spanning epic is available at last for portable devices!
