So get ready to play the epic that is DRAGON QUEST VIII from beginning to end—and far beyond! Prologue Legends tell of an ancient sceptre, within which is sealed a fearsome power... When the relic's long-dormant magics are awoken by the treachery of a malign magician, an entire kingdom falls into a cursed slumber, prompting a young soldier to embark on an unforgettable journey... Game Features – Simple, Accessible Controls The control system has been streamlined to work perfectly with modern touch interfaces. The position of the directional pad can be adjusted freely, enabling players to switch between one-handed and two-handed play with a tap of the screen. The combat system has also been reworked, allowing for one-tap battles as well as more complex play. – The Tension System During battle, you can select 'Psyche Up' to give your next attack some extra oomph! The more you psyche a character up, the higher their tension will rise, until they finally reach an insane state known as super-high tension! – Skill Points Skill points are earned when your characters level up, and can be assigned to various skills in order to learn new spells and abilities. This system allows you to perfectly tailor your team to your liking. – Monster Teams Certain monsters found in the field can be scouted for your monster team – if you're tough enough to beat them, that is! Once assembled, your crack squad can take part in the fiercely contested tournaments held at the monster arena, and can even come to your aid in battle! – The Alchemy Pot Combine existing items to create entirely new ones! Even the most unassuming objects could be ingredients for the greatest items of all!

  • Great Game / but needs an update to fix cloud saves

    By Linedawg
    I really enjoy playing this game, but the cloud save feature does not work. It would be great if the developers would release a patch to correct the issues with cloud saves. Last update was 2 years ago.
  • Cloud saves don’t work, devs abandoned this app

    By thegraffix
    Cloud saves would make a world of difference and they used to work until the last update. The feature has not worked since. Port is decent although there are no voices and the controls can get frustrating as well as the inability to play landscape. Buy a better port on a different console/device, this is not worth the money since they don’t support the app any longer and won’t resolve the bugs they introduced with their last update. Pretty disappointing.
  • Buyer Beware

    By TriEdge D Trace
    This is mostly in regards to how S.E. basically ignores their games after three months. It needs an update to at least support iPhone X, and to fix the issue it’s had almost since launch with iCloud saves. I haven’t been able to play it to completion because I lose my save data at some point. The games amazing, it just needs some fixing.
  • Extra characters added?

    By t3hchri5
    Will there ever be an update to have the other characters added? The game is good, but for 20 bucks updates would be nice.
  • Landscape mode

    By David from Phoenix
    Is there any way to make the game available in landscape mode?
  • Great game, painful performance

    By Yaywalter
    Got my XS Max today, and while I’m not surprised to see that DQ8 still runs at the same juddery 20-or-less FPS that it does on my 6S (since it also ran about as well on my old iPhone 5), I do think it’s criminal that such a great game has such a poor iOS port. Play it on PS2 or 3DS instead, or hold out for a possible PC or Switch port.
  • Thank God that awful VA is gone

    By PathofExileisdabomb
    The English dub of this was always ruined emersion for me. It’s much better when you get to read dialogue in your head.
  • Not the Complete Game!

    By Pleas fix
    Paid $19.99 for Dragon Quest 8. Where is the voice acting? Description says it’s the complete game, well it’s not. I bought this for my 3.5 year old who loves rpgs and I bought this expecting the game as advertised! I’m not sure why you would sell the game without the voices as an option. It’s an easy fix and just seems lazy that the voice acting in the languages previously available are not now available.
  • No app icon

    By psydent559
    There is no app icon on my phone. I have to open it up through the app store
  • Frame rate woes

    By Yesmanbrodude
    Poor framerate performance that is distracting and takes away from the quality of this great game. Playing on an iPhoneX- should be more than powerful enough to run this game well if it were optimized properly.
