Final Fantasy VII is probably the most revered JRPG of all time, and its long-awaited remake has tons of folks anxiously awaiting the chance to see the reimagining of a classic. I’m sure its release will be met with equal parts fanfare and outrage, as is usually the case when a high-profile work is revisited.
If you don’t want to have to sift through all of the hot takes around the game to decide whether it’s worth playing, it might be better to just try and find an alternative for now. Check out our top picks for the best mobile games that can deliver an experience close to what Final Fantasy VII Remake promises. Oh, and while you’re at it, click here to check out all the great lists we’ve been putting together recently.
In a lot of ways, turn-based strategy games are an ideal fit for mobile. Their menu-heavy navigation and slow pace mesh better with touch input than just about any other control scheme.
Unsurprisingly, this means there are a lot of strategy games to choose from on mobile, but not all of them are worth your time (or money). Take, for example, War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. For all its flashy visuals and pedigree, it’s a shameless gacha game that capitalizes on your fondness for Chocobos and older, better games while locking up its strategic depth behind a dizzying amount of monetized systems.
With that in mind, I went ahead and selected our top picks for the best turn-based strategy games on mobile. Check them out below. Oh, and click here to check out all the great lists we’ve been making recently.
If you’re new to this genre and wondering where to start, I can’t recommend The Battle of Polytopia highly enough. It’s free, matches are short, and it does a great job of teaching you the fundamentals of strategy games without feeling overly complicated.
It’s also one of the most convenient strategy games there is, as it plays well in portrait mode and auto-saves constantly. Once you feel ready, you can also spend as little as $ 0.99 to unlock a new tribe that will also give you the ability to play with others online.
The tentpole JRPG franchise for well over 30 years now, Final Fantasy has been capturing the hearts of both western and eastern audiences for almost as long as it's been available to them. Each new entry brings with it an entirely new cast of heroes, game mechanics, and story, with maybe the odd spin-off or fighting game variant sprinkled in for good measure. Because, why not?
It's a series that's become known for regularly regenerating itself. And while it's fairly easy to keep up with the mainline numbered entries on consoles, Final Fantasy on mobile proves to be a different beast. To help separate the rough from the smooth and your turn-based battlers from your straight action epics, here's our comprehensive breakdown of the Final Fantasy titles on IOS worth looking into.
It seems like the week's only just started, and yet here we are with a huge pile of discounted games to sort through. There are some real doozies on sale this week. We're talking some truly stellar titles. Let's take a look at four of the best deals on the App Store this week.
Square Enix has been mixing up its approach to music lately, featuring the likes of Eminem and Royce Da 5'9" in a Final Fantasy XV launch trailer and incorporating a Florence and the Machine rendition of "Stand by Me" on the official soundtrack. Now they'll be including a Final Fantasy-fied version of Ariana Grande's hit "Touch it" in Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius, and the pop star herself will appear in the game as a brand new character, Dangerous Ariana.
Final Fantasy XV is out today, and to celebrate we’re breaking down the best Final Fantasy games on mobile. Porting a game to mobile is always tricky business, but many of the early Final Fantasy games have made the transition quite well. Let’s see which ones are the best.
Up until now, Mobius Final Fantasy has been about as single-player an experience as an RPG can be. Not only do you play solo, but you are literally one among a seemingly unending wave of faceless warriors on the road toward the same goal.
That changes with the game's latest update, though not officially until Thursday, September 8, when the multiplayer mode called Ring of Braves goes live. Here's what you need to know.
When it comes to authentic Final Fantasy flavor, it's easy to find in Mobius Final Fantasy. The cryptic story and graphical style hit you right from the start, and you don't have to play for too long before you run into a Moogle, Cactuars, and plenty of other instantly familiar touches.
There's a lot that is new as well. One aspect of the gameplay that stands out as something that series veterans may not grasp but that mobile gamers in general should find comfortable is the card-based system that specifies what abilities you bring into combat and how generally tough your character is as well.
It's not a super complicated system, but neither is it immediately obvious how one goes about acquiring better cards to have your character fully prepared for the challenges that are waiting down the road (pretty literally, in the case of this particular game). With that in mind, we thought we'd lay out all the ways you have to improve your cards in Mobius Final Fantasy, the better to have the best possible deck.
It took some time, but mobile devices are finally starting to get their own Final Fantasy games. Mobius Final Fantasy is one of those, complete with lush graphics, mysterious characters, and plenty of the expected trappings.
Even better, it's free to play, breaking away from the series' console ports, which were pretty expensive for mobile titles. With turn-based gameplay, it's not hard to pick up, though there are some details that may not be obvious even after going through the very thorough tutorial.
Happily, those kinds of details are our stock and trade here at 148apps. Take a journey through our Mobius Final Fantasy guide for beginners and you'll be more than a Blank before you know it.
Battle Champs is a build and battler out right now on iOS and Android that takes a lot of inspiration from the undisputed champion of the genre, Clash of Clans.
But to call it a clone is way off the mark. The developer of Battle Champs has made a serious effort to innovate on and, dare we say it, improve certain features of Clash of Clans.
As we're a kind bunch, we thought we'd write up a list of six ways that Battle Champs improves on the Clash of Clans formula so you can better decide whether or not it's worth your time.
Chances are you knew it was coming, but just in case you didn't (or just in case you didn't realize the date), Final Fantasy VII is now available on the App Store. Yes, that Final Fantasy VII.
If you’ve bothered to look at my profile on here, first of all, why are you that interested? Second of all, you’ll note that I stated that Final Fantasy VII (and Goldeneye) were ‘life-changing’ for me. Ok, so there’s a certain amount of hyperbole there, but those two games ensured I went from "Hey, games are quite fun when I've got nothing better to do" to "I love everything about them and they’re very important to me." That’s a double-edged sword to one’s productivity levels, but hey, look what I’m doing right now.
As a big mobile gaming fan and a big Final Fantasy VII fan, I should be excited about it coming to iOS, right? Well, not so much.
