I grabbed this off itunes last night - only $5, and I like the idea of a FFT-lite on my ipod. I didn’t play it much, as I wanted to get back to my real FFTA2, but early thoughts looked pretty positive.
Controlling movement with the clik wheel is pretty simple, as it just cycles through availble squares forwards and backwards. Commands are inputted via a radial dial. Menus work similar to ipod navigation, so nothing tricky there.
It seems like it “analyzes” a song you choose to make the trooper you deploy. There’s 5 possible classes: Warrior, Archer, Mage, Monk and uh…Thief? Don’t recall as I was busy clicking through the tutorial. I’m not sure if it actually analyzes anything, or just randomly creates a char so you think it’s being analyzed. I think tonight I’ll select the same song a few times to see what it gives me.
Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing gave me a Rank D Wooden Archer
Basshunter’s DoTA mix gave me a Rank B Fighter
It also gave me some conditions: “Find me a long song with lots of words”. I suggested Meatloaf’s I Would do Anything For Love, but the guy didn’t like it and refused to make a trooper from it.
Barely scratching the game though, it seems interesting enough with tactical battles. $5 on ipod = win.
