PS2 game for your phone!!!! Definitely a keeper. I love this game. Beautiful graphics. Its great to play a 3D DQ game on your phone. My only complaint is that the cloud save doesnt work for me. I tried to solve it with Square Enix customer service (who told me it was Google Cloud's fault) and later with Google Cloud (who told me it was the app's fault). An annoyance since its a 80+ hour game and I cant sync to the cloud, so I might loose my progress at some point.
Just Lost ALL My Data!!! I just freaking lost EVERY BIT of my saved data when the app updated!!! I would very much hope it can be retreived. Very dissatisfied.
Fantastic Game! A classic that ages well. Can't say enough good things about this game! The only drawbacks are the limitations of porting the console controls to touch-screen, which they did well considering. And the lack of the well-received English voice acting from the original. Otherwise a perfect, even slightly better version of the classic!
Around 20 FPS! Reviews are correct, the software-locked frame rate is really horrible! While you can still slug through the game, it feels laggy as hell (regardless of hardware). I'm playing on a Sony Xperia Z5 Octa-core. Do your research before purchase; $22 is a bit steep for what feels like you're playing on a bad emulator. Dragon Quest VIII however is still a brilliant/amazing game and the fact it is now portable is nice.
Unplayable, unacceptable, refund please! I have a high performance gaming tablet, a nice phone and this game doesn't seem to go above 15 or 20 frames per second. It's too bad because they got a lot right. For instance they fixed the horrible menu and prattle that you had to go through in the church. Controls are okay but are in serious need of an upgrade. The joystick is locked to the middle of the screen for me so I can't use my thumb at the bottom corner of the screen like I want. I better be able to get a refund, unacceptable and unplayable.
Love the game but... "Failed to synchronize data, please check your signal and data usage, and try again." I overlooked the fact that it's missing the voiceovers wish it was at least optional, but I had to reset my phone and when I got the app downloaded again, it won't let me cloud sync my save game. says check data package (I have unlimited) and Wi-Fi. I'm going to stop playing if I have to start over again. If they can get my save back will be 5 stars again. I'm just like to add that there's no customer support whatsoever
It added support for Android OS6.0.
This classic generation-spanning epic is available at last for portable devices!
Play the first DRAGON QUEST in the Zenethian series & experience the epic story!
