Secret of Mana available for iOS right now at 899

first_imgSecret of Mana, one of the finest RPGs released during the SNES era (Secret of Evermore FTW!), is available for iOS right now.Square Enix has released the game for $8.99, which is high for the app store, especially considering the tremendous proliferation of SNES emulators and the easy availability of ROMs, but it’s a great sign for RPG lovers and fans of 16-bit gaming. We should also keep in mind that SoM has yet to hit the Wii or Nintendo DS and original cartridges go for at least $40 so this actually could be a very good deal.AdChoices广告How great of a deal it actually is will depend on how well the game was ported to iOS. There are a number of issues inherent with porting a game this old to a new platform, let alone to a mobile phone and something without hardware buttons. RPGs (especially turn-based ones) tend to work better than actions games so let’s keep the fingers crossed.All the reviews seem to be relatively positive so far, though there are complaints about the price and the lack of multiplayer. Everyone else just seems thrilled to be able to play Secret of Mana on their iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.Pick it up at the App store.last_img read more
