FINAL FANTASY IV App User Reviews & Comments
Great game but dumbed downAwesome game but they made this substantially easier from SNES versions for two main reasons: -cure spells are automatic -tough monsters are on a delayed and easier fight sequence I almost feel insulted at how much easier they made this for us..Version: 1.0.0
WAY TOO EASYIt looks and sounds great, but there is zero challenge in the FF4 pixel remaster. SNES version was way more challenging, took twice as long to level up, and you had to level up to beat the bosses. You can’t walk through the 4 elemental fiends with no sweat in the SNES version like you can with this. You can play this version all the way through on auto-battle, party never gets wiped out, enemies pose no threat, bosses can be beat in less than a minute using auto-battle. I beat the game in 9-10 hours with zero grinding. This version also has the least amount of content. The 3D version is better. Way more content and it’s challenging. With the pixel remaster you are stuck with super easy difficulty and a shorter game..Version: 1.0.0
So far, so good.This was the first big adventure game I played as a kid. I still remember getting Final Fantasy 2 for the SNES on release day. I have such fond memories of playing this game. So far this game is bringing back some really good memories. The graphics are crisp and a little cleaner than I remember, but I do welcome the changes. The upgraded audio is fantastic. I do wish there was an option to use the original 16-but audio as well, maybe in a future patch. I also enjoy the auto battle with faster speed for some the generic random battles, and no mods to turn off random battles. My only real gripe is the same with any console game on mobile, I am not a fan of touch screen. I play this at random various times (like at work) so using a controller is pretty much a no-go anyways. But being able to play this anywhere is being super cool. Can’t wait for FFVI now..Version: 1.0.0
Still no controller support on any pixel remasterI was hoping that since FF4 remake on IOS had controller support this version would too but it does not. Game is amazing looking and the soundtrack is awesome. If youre a person who likes touch controls dont hesitate to buy but i dislike them and prefer controllers for games originally designed for controllers. So they got my money on all of them but im not a happy customer yet..Version: 1.0.0
No controller support?This game does not appear to have iOS controller support. Why? Obviously the original game does, the Steam version does, and even the 3D remake, which is still on the App Store, does. Why remove something that was already there?.Version: 1.0.0
Downgraded translation, choreographyLoaded this up on an iPad Mini 4 and: - things are quite slow - i was able to hang the app by trying to load the bestiary before playing the game once in the game, i found it strange that: - the text is so clear yet the sprites/environment relish in the pixelated feel - the new translation is awful - why remaster the soundtrack if you are down-mastering the graphics? other thoughts: - no augments? woof. know what would have made this nostalgic game fun/worth it? re-introducing the “bug” that allowed you to duplicate weapons by re-equipping them in battle. seems like a missed opportunity. thanks for at least including cecil’s darkness ability. for the record, the DS/polygon-character remake is the best version of this game..Version: 1.0.0
NostalgiaThe music is a huge upgrade from the original SNES version I played. I never played the mobile FFIV due to the 3D design that I found ugly. I am enjoying it greatly, partly from nostalgia and partly from the upgrades. I wish tap movement would go through tunnels, though. Font seems OK on my iPhone 12, but could be improved as well..Version: 1.0.0
EhSo I liked the FF3 one because I had never played a 2d version of that, but this game just felt like a reinvention of the original, yet another version, which frankly was way too easy. If this is supposed to be like the original, why is it so easy? The original game was a lot more difficult..Version: 1.0.0
No controller supportI guess I’ll Ramon me for not checking, but all of they’re other games support controllers. Really ticked off there’s no MFI support..Version: 1.0.0
No controller supportJust like the other PR there is no controller support, great game just needs controller support!.Version: 1.0.0
Please add controller supportPlease add controller support.Version: 1.0.0
Controller Support?- Update: Would seem none of the Pixel Remake’s have controller support on iOS. One star. It completely wrecks the experience if you are going for nostalgia. - Love it so far. Getting two stars due to lack of controller support..Version: 1.0.0
Welcome take on a classicThis was my first RPG back in the 90s, and I’m happy to say it holds up. I’ve played most versions of IV, most recently the 3D one. If there’s something about the 3D reimagining that I disliked, it’s how slow the whole experience felt, from combat to dialogue. Every little fight took like a minute to resolve. In this version you can get through most random encounters in 20 seconds, which keeps the pace up, like the original did. The music is outstanding and the rearranged tracks strike a good balance between the classic MIDIs and real instrumentation. All sprites look fantastic, and they’ve added really cool particle animations to spell effects etc. Negatives are: - Horrible font, would welcome an option for the classic pixel fonts - No controller support - Touch d-pad is awful, use tap to move instead (though tap to move doesn’t work for discovering secret passages) - Easier than the 3D version (I never wiped in the entire play through).Version: 1.0.0
No sound on iPhone 8I have tried on 8, 8plus and iPad. Sound only works on the iPad..Version: 1.0.0
Love FF4 but this needs updatesOptions to change font and controller support are really needed.Version: 1.0.0
No controller support, really?I feel stupid for buying this game without verifying that it was supported but f off.... What a joke.Version: 1.0.0
Controller supportNeeds controller support.Version: 1.0.0
True to the OGAnd with welcome, subtle changes to graphics and musical score. The UI is crisp and auto battle is also nice. That said, very disappointed at the lack of a Hard Mode option, and I do not see any NewGame+ mentioned anywhere. FFIV is a classic, but it is a notoriously easy game, and for replayability sake, I wish Hard Mode and NG+ were here. I also think there was a missed opportunity here to package The After Years within the remaster, as most people have never played or even heard of the “sequel” to FFIV. All in all, if you’re a fan of OG FF, grab this, it’s clean and legitimately well done. I just wish there more options to tinker with..Version: 1.0.0
Please create quicksave on app close!I’m used to mobile games always creating a quicksave if you close the app. Closed accidentally several times and lost progress. This is standard with mobile titles..Version: 1.0.0
Worst Version of FF4FF4 is my favorite game of all time, but this release is awful. As a mobile title, it suffers from illegible narrow font and a poor interface. Too much of the screen is filled with the movement ring (tap movement is unusable due to mandatory hidden passages and is unavailable on all ships but the hovercraft) and 4 widely spaced menu buttons. This is a severe downgrade from the now defunct FF5/6 mobile titles that, despite controversial graphic changes, were optimized for streamlined play on mobile. Unlike those releases, this title has issues with the combat screen, with its extremely zoom out making the Evil Wall start halfway across instead of menacingly moving in from offscreen, and bizarre targeting menus which overlay the bottom windows and do not let you see current character HP once you select the cure spell. Game is also substantially easier than the SNES release it is supposedly based on- I easily conquered the game in under 9 hours without a single game over, using items/buying equipment, or grinding levels. A huge disappointment since I wanted a solid mobile FF4 and this is not it- the defunct old mobile FF4 was based on the 3D DS version and was also not optimized for mobile play. QOL improvements (autobattle, character pathing with tap movement, visible minimap, auto equip) were outweighed by awkward gameplay changes and the worst font I have ever seen in a mobile game. I sincerely hope they patch this later to fix the font at the very least, since right now it is a complete waste of money..Version: 1.0.0
Good old FFIVPlays well. Graphics look great and reminiscent of the classic SNES version. Only downside is that it seems to only be the “easy” version. For those unaware, on original release in Japan, an easy mode cart and hard mode. In the US only the easy mode cart was released. Later rereleases (like the PSP version) did include the hard version. While it’s nice to experience the game again closer to its original style, having hard mode available would be a welcome option..Version: 1.0.0
Better than you thinkI was skeptical… But the soundtrack is stunning. The subtle effects are great for quality of life. And the font, which looks terrible in screenshots, is extremely easy on the eyes in motion. Happy to finally complete my FF IV journey..Version: 1.0.0
Great!The music alone makes it worth. A joy to play on my ipad..Version: 1.0.0
Great, but UnstableHello! This is one of my favorite games, but I have now gotten to a point where, when I use my strongest spells, the game freezes. You gotta correct this stuff. I’m going to spoil a lot if I explain how and where it’s happening, but it’s near the end of the game with end-game abilities; it happens, specifically, when I use auto-battle. Please fix this, and it’s 5 stars all the way!.Version: 1.0.0
Just needs controller supportPlease update for controller support! I love this game and there are so many amazing controller out there for phones now..Version: 1.0.0
The ONLY reason I’m not giving 5 stars…The only reason this masterpiece isn’t getting 5 stars is because of Square Enix’s puzzling decision not to have controller support. Don’t get me wrong, the touch controls work fine but are not ideal. The Steam version supports controllers and other Square titles like Chrono Trigger and even other FF titles support them on iOS so what’s the deal?? Also would really prefer a console port of these games since they belong there. Still one of my favorite Final Fantasy games and they nailed it when it comes to the soundtrack. Please add controller support though. Please!.Version: 1.0.0
