The only I had was that I could not save my game onto Game Center and transfer the data to another phone when I upgrade my phones. RIP to all that grind.
I’ve never played this on an NES, but having played the OG Dragon Quest here on iOS, it was every bit worth the grab on sale. So you’re this knight of all trades, wants to be a hero after your father, set to battle yet another demon overlord—or rather, the first one ever. Play as a girl for some extra laughs no matter what you yourself identity as. You won’t regret it. If you’re a fan of Dragon Quest, it’s the same lotta grind for little money that will keep you battling for hours or just frustrate you to death. But it’s worth it for the variety of jobs your allies can take on. My only issue thus far is that the graphics look incredibly blocky on high-res displays. To that end, DQIII could use a touch-up from one of its earlier ports. But as I’ve said, it’s worth the pickup.
I just made it to the area where you need to use the wrecking ball and found my data was deleted. Please Square Enix fix this before it deletes a file where I am much later into the game
Squaresoft was my favorite companies back in my SNES days. Opened the game tonight and the game loaded me about two hours behind in my play. With $10 game like this from a great company I would have expected better,no excellence. This type of game also doesn't motivate you to grind all those levels over again. Cmon Square! You used to be my go-to, my homey. Crono Trigger changed my life. A masterpiece. This was my first Dragon Quest too! Maybe you guys are active on here and you can help a brother out. Promise to buy another Square title of you do.
This game is so great!! It’s easily the most hours I’ve ever put into a mobile game. It’s so immersive and engaging, and almost feels like a modern game even though it’s from the 80’s or 90’s. I can totally understand why it’s considered a classic, as I couldn’t put it down from the first 10 minutes. Love this game!! As an added bonus, if you play 1, 2 and 3 consecutively like I did (over the course of the last two weeks...), this game becomes so much better!! 10/10, highly recommended experience. Treat yourself.
Dragon Quest III (Dragon Warrior III in the U.S. back then) was the 12th highest selling game on the NES/Famicon and propelled Dragon Quest from a successful series into a cultural phenomenon (at least in Japan), as no numbered Dragon Quest game has since been released on weekdays, since the absenteeism from this game’s release day crippled Japanese school and work. Dragon Quest III was so great because of its meaningful and detailed story that ties together with the first two games and because of its highly customizable character-progression system. This mobile version includes most of the improvements made to the various mostly-Japan-only rereleases so is a huge step up from pulling out a NES and old-schooling it. For more information, check out the 1-hour analysis of the game, “The History of RPGs Ep. 7 | Dragon Quest III” on the Mr. Gentleman YouTube channel.
Let me just say, this game works SO well on iPhone. Unlike the other square Enix iOS games, they actually innovate and update their dragon quest line and that keeps these games working so well. The updated graphics, orchestral soundtrack, controls all work so well on this platform and whoever’s idea it was to have the game stretch downwards in full screen is a genius. This game or any of the iOS dragon quests for that matter are well worth your money
This game is a classic. If you’re a huge fan of the traditional JRPG traditional formula this game will be right up your alley. There may be certain parts where you’ll need a guide because of how vague the game can be at certain points so take upon yourself to speak to every NPC (and take screenshots or write down the hints that NPC provide). Job class system in the game keeps a freeform feel to creating your team however you want. The personality system can be sort of confusing as it affects stat gains so that’s something you may also have to look up. Difficulty wise the game is hard early on, eases up, and then gets harder towards the end again. Game is pretty grind heavy and encounter rates can be annoying. Orchestrated soundtrack makes the experience amazing. I have a good about 20+ hours into this game and for the price I would consider this purchase worth it. My only recommendation if you want the best experience is at least looking up a guide on the classes and personality so you can fully understand the system (it doesn’t get explained in game). From there you can create a team to your liking.
Great old school RPG, the mobile version is pretty easy compared to a lot of JRPGs but the gameplay is still fun. Also the Hero from Dragon Quest 3 will appear as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
