FINAL FANTASY Initially released in Japan in 1987, the original FINAL FANTASY amazed audiences with its rich story and stunning graphics. Players guide the Warriors of Light as they set out on a quest to restore the crystals to their former luster. Its side-view battles, choice and promotion of character classes, and sprawling world explored with fantastic vehicles quickly became standards of the series. This game set the stage for all FINAL FANTASY games to come. This release also contains the bonus dungeons added to later editions of the game--the Soul of Chaos and the Labyrinth of Time. Additional Information (reference only): ESRB Rating: E10+ with Mild Fantasy Violence and Suggestive Themes * This app is not compatible with "FINAL FANTASY (Portal Version)."



  • Tedious beyond belief

    By Motsjustes
    First of all, the random encounter rate in this game is unconscionable. Mobs get monotonous extremely quickly, and there’s no auto-battle function to compensate for it. Fighting a battle every five or six steps gets old *really* quickly, almost to the point I don’t even care to finish the game. Also, the controls are movement clunky and poorly calibrated. Up can be down and left can be right, which exacerbated the random encounter issue exponentially.
  • Great Classic

    By Hello Geno!
    Played this game through several times on iphone, and absolutely love it every time. Still holds up really well despite being so old. Would love to see an update to this game similar to the one applied to Chrono Trigger recently and it’s PC release, but honestly if the game isn’t updated I’ll still be going back to play it yet again and still highly recommend it. Thank you Square!

  • Truly a Classic RPG

    By Sanic the derphog
    Every time I have heard of the Final Fantasy series, it has always been regarded as successful, and with the number of games that are in the series to back it up, I never knew how good it actually is. A month ago, I finally decided to try it out, and I just beat it today. I have to say, as an NES game, it’s something. I had 20 hours put in by the end, and I didn’t even do everything. This game has, at the time of its original release in 1987, stunning graphics, and such a vast environment to explore. The story is basic, but the adventure is wonderful. There are tons of spells and weapons to collect. Final Fantasy is known for its turn based combat. The turn based combat is fun and strategic, and the backgrounds in battles are detailed yet simple, but as something of an intermediate RPG player as I am, my prior RPG experience being the Xenoblade Chronicles games and the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series, I was not a huge fan of the random encounter battle system; however, I did become used to it as time went on. Overall, as a beginner to the series, I say this game still holds up to this day, and I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who wants to try out an RPG, and has never played a Final Fantasy game. I’m looking forward to playing Final Fantasy II, and the main series beyond. I hope my review influences newcomers to give it a try, and look out for my future reviews of the Final Fantasy series. - ToineJak
  • Fun, but much easier.

    By Eickbar
    Pros: -No major glitches that I’ve noticed -Nice update to the graphics -Maps and item locations are the same as the original. Cons: -Many monsters and items have different names than the original making it confusing. -Going to a single mana pool instead of limited uses per spell lvl greatly reduces the difficulty and the planning that was required in the original. Too easy. -Being able to refill your mana in dungeons. Too easy. -Saving inside of dungeons. Too easy.
  • iPhone X optimization

    By philliphekmati
    This game looks tiny, and honestly, awful on iPhone X. A full screen update would be appreciated, even if it is an in-app purchase.
  • A few complaints

    By AstralDarkstar
    It's hard to enjoy this game with a giant DPad taking up half the screen. It's bad enough to have a thumb between the screen and my eyes, I don't need this oversized DPad on the screen as well. The "choosing sound effect" is just too loud. Give the option of lowering or muting it. The remastered soundtrack is amazing, just to have it ruined by that loud sound effect. It forces me to lower the sound completely. And why isn't this widescreen? This remaster started as a widescreen game on the PSP. It may have been ported during the 4:3 iPhones, but the laziness of not updating is very strong. Feels like a simple port and cash out.
  • No save sync between devices (iCloud)

    By timshutes
    Played for an hour on the iPad. Tried to pick back up on the phone but no luck. Saves are stuck on the device for only as long as you keep the current install.
  • Well worth $4

    By tfc_bot
    The graphics of this port are spectacular when compared to those of the original NES title. Random encounters seem to be very frequent. This is annoying because it takes forever to travel anywhere, and it becomes more about wasting your time than providing a challenge. The encounters are so frequent that Gil becomes meaningless as you rack so much up from encounter spam. With that being said, this port is a great opportunity to play FF1 with clean graphics and a touchscreen interface that works flawlessly. Thank you devs for polishing up a classic!
  • I want my money back!

    By Vivi L
    I still can’t figure out how to give the characters name so that I can actually play the game! So I downloaded FF2 and started playing that with no issues.
