  • Generally worth it

    By King dill
    The game plays pretty easy, it is definitely a game from the 80’s. And it’s a great casual game to have on your phone to play in downtime. The level progression is strong, where you definitely feel that your character is getting stronger. The bosses where they exist are challenging but not impossible. Really I only have a few negative critiques (but a lot of these are just because of the games age): 1- the game is artificially made longer by the amount of world traveling that’s needed, the goal points that require you to travel between are on opposite sides of the world and the trek is done on foot exclusively. 2- not a single NPC is story compelling in the slightest. Mostly non existent actually. When I think about it the protagonists story is actually very weak as well.. 3- there is no direction to point you from point A To point B. Not that I like games holding my hands, but there is nothing in the game indicating any direction at all to complete the game. It’s quite literally just “to kill the dragon lord” and you’re expected just figure it out yourself. All that aside it still plays pretty nice, it’s a short game and I would say the price is right on the game. You pay for what you get here.
  • Thou shalt love this game, if thou art inclined to play

    By swordzman0611
    This incarnation captureth all that was the original Dragon Warrior, yet it lacketh a true understanding of Early Modern English. I shall grant thee that ye olde NES game suffered worse. But if it be thine desire to bear witness to a classic for all tyme, then thou shouldst look no further. It be a fantastic adventure for a paltry sum of silver coins. Thy quest awaits thee!
  • Button Bug fixed in latest release

    By DangeresqueToo
    I notified Square Enix of the issue in this game when I contacted them about the same one in Dragon Quest 3. The support ticket was escalated with a fix on the App Store a few days later. Kudos to the app developers on fixing this! What issue was: Broken back button and button for switching directional pad on iOS 11 + iPhone SE. App works ok on iOS 9 + iPhone 4S This game is a classic RPG and the Portrait oriented UI and touch controls work well too. Treat yourself and get this app.
  • Fun, but disappointing

    By genericblues
    I was excited to see a bug fix update. After all this time, what bugs did they fix? Well, not the non-integer scaling bug. Basically the game is rendered to a weird internal resolution such that the ratio of the internal resolution to the actual resolution is not an integer, and this results in the very ugly game art. Which is sad, because the new artwork looks like it’d be pretty good otherwise, and of course the music is the best that Dragon Quest 1 has ever sounded. Maybe next update.
  • Still a great game!

    By PartyItsTayTay
    This game was great when it originally came out and it’s value has not diminished over the years. Developers: Please fix the back button, it doesn’t work very when exiting menus.
  • Bug fixed :)

    By Workinmom1
    Thankfully, an update was just released that fixed the back button being untappable on iPhone 6 devices. This is probably the best was to play the game, good job devs.
  • Still good after almost 30 years

    By Stack
    After playing Dragon Quest Builders, which takes place with this game’s plot line, I felt like I should go back and play this game. The last time was nearly 30 years when it came to the US. I figured this version should be the one to play. At first the updated graphics were a bit jarring, but I got over that quickly. Some of the game play elements are a little easier than its first incarnation, but I still had a lot of fun with this and it brought back all those memories. On to the next one...
  • Amazing

    By DownLoadableGodd
    Please update all of your titles for iPhone X. This is awesome!
  • Grind Quest

    By Dell098
    Dragon Quest 1 on the NES is known as one of the most grind heavy games ever made. As versions are released, it gets less and less like this. Luckily, this version I feel gets the exp and gold system just right. 4 Stars for Classic rpg gameplay and open exploration with a world that feels like an appropriate size. 1 Star missing for lacking music. (I know it’s the first entry, but I’m looking at this game retrospectively.)
  • Fast and fun

    By chizzybob
    Dragon Quest Wow This game is straight 🔥🔥🔥 The game puts you in the role of a hero that embarks on a quest to save a princess from a menacing dragon. Simple but epic. The first game in the series, and the second, chronologically, in the Erdrick trilogy. I will admit this is not the greatest JRPG, but it has laid the foundation for future JRPGs, and serves as the start of what is arguably the greatest JRPG series of all time.
