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.

I love this game. Just wish they would add the 3ds features on to the app. That would make me play nonstop
The game overall looks great, is fun, and runs fine, but the game mutes itself when you set your phone ringer to vibrate or silent. This means your ringer has to be on in order to play the game with sound, which is pretty unacceptable on a plane or in other quiet areas. At least the iOS port runs 60 FPS unlike Android.
Handoff between cloud save and devices is frustratingly inconsistent and slow. I like being able to switch from my iPhone 8 to my iPad Pro (1st gen) when I have time. I do enjoy this game though and it runs otherwise really smoothly. I’ve played 16ish hours so far and love it. Just got to King Trodain’s castle. 🥺
This game is amazing and the most amazing part to me was the post game but instead of getting to play I got sent to Argonia after the credits and I couldn’t zoom or fly anymore .... so I thought ok let’s do it by foot and by boat and go kill rapthotne again and I do that and then got taken to the title screen to goto the saves to see it saved to after the battle and I got stuck in an endless loop of credits load repeat. And the worst part is I loaded an older game and lost alllllll the work I put in 55:67 . I paid a lot for this game and would of loved to play the post game through the end and I’m very disappointed in these bugs it needs to be fixed .
The game is cool and I like playing it but the dialogue needs the character voices, there needs to be a landscape mode to play the game easier, and there should be an option to create your own character in detail that you can play the game with it's boring to just "play a story"
The sound isn’t working on the 2018 iPad Pro running latest OS. I want a refund.
I just got it and I love it just as much as Pokemon. Oh and just for a thought I love the Slimed they are just so cute!!!!!!!!😆
This is one of my favorite games.....it is an excellent rpg with a ton of play time and story. .......port is missing character audio( subtitles only), no controller support and vertical layout instead of horizontal. Add controller support, horizontal layout and character voices back into the game and it is a 5 star game.
Needs controller compatibility ASAP please and landscape full screen
A big part of why I loved DQ8 on PS2 was the voice acting and the orchestral score. That is all missing in this version. Voice acting is nonexistent and the music is low quality midi/sampled instruments rather than a recorded orchestra. Controls Re pretty wonky too.
