    A very welcome addition on my ipad. I wasn't expecting this game to come on IOS at all. One more reason to start playing this game again since there are new additions ( like touch screen , etc. ).

    I had not had an opportunity to play this gem before since I never had a SNES and I haven't found it for the DS so I was extremely happy when it came to the Appstore. From what I've heard, it's not that good of a port but so far I'm enjoying it none the less. The soundtrack is one of the best I've heard in a video game.

    Looks sounds and plays better on a free SNES emulator. They have an awful bilinear filter applied to the image and it's forced to widescreen instead of displaying in the natural 8:7 it did on the SNES.

    honestly, the controls alone make it criminal that they even sell it on the App Store. you have to slightly drag your finger on the screen for your character to move, which is hard to do accurately. when trying to face and interact with an NPC it is very frustrating to accurately do so.

    This is still a classic and still a fantastic game that needs to be played by any and all RPG lovers. The controls can be very, very irritating at times but the core experience, characters and storyline have weathered the storm of porting and still provide as much enjoyment as they ever had. I'm still kind of cheesed-off by the butchering of Frog's script, though.

    This is still the Chrono Trigger fans have come to know and love even despite Square Enix' stubborn refusal to shape its games to suit the iOS platform; this can dampen the experience, but its core still shines through.

    As a game, Chrono Trigger is perfect. As a port, we've seen better.
