Anyone know if this can be played horizontally? It only seems to work vertically on my phone.

I haven't been able to find a settings menu to change this layout. Kind of annoying....

That sucks... I would love to be able to play it with both hands. This isn't a good handed game.

They tout that it's designed to be played one handed in the screen shots so I don't think there will be an option to change it.

Finally was able to try it out on my Fire.  It ran a bit sluggish, which is expected considering the Fires are a but underpowered.  Still playable though.  So far I just escorted fat Yoda around a bit.  Will see if this game grabs me at all.

Game runs strangely on my Galaxy 7. Almost like it's forced to run at 15 fps or something.

I'm going to have to stalk all future new Square app releases so when they go up as a listing I can get them for free. ;D

They probably did this just to pad their launch numbers, cleverly using the word "downloaded X number of times in the first week!" instead of "sold"

DQVIII is my all time favorite JRPG but trying to play it on my Kindle Fire has pretty much verified that I just can't get into touch screen gaming. The game loses a ton of its charm without the great voice acting and orchestral music from the NA PS2 version but I think I could look past that if I could deal with the controls. But I can't! At least this is a lesson I learned for free.

Doesnt show for me after purchase. Besides, according to the reviews/forums, the Note 4 is locked out of playing it as it doesnt meet their invisible bs specs.
 
I hate it when companies block hardware that is more than capable of running the software because they deem it out of date.


Tell me about it, I still can't believe I'm unable to open the wells fargo app. It was working perfectly a couple of weeks ago but i'm sure they categorized my device as OOD...

You guys know the real reason it was free right?  To get as many people to buy it free as possible, so when Dragon Quest 8 bombs on the 3DS, Square Enix can blame us for the reason it didn't sell and point out that's why they're not localizing anything for us in the west unless the game has Final Fantasy in the title.  Nintendo is publishing the title, Square Enix probably made their money from selling off the publishing rights for this version.

 

If you ask me, Square Enix should do this.  Final Fantasy SaGa: Scarlet Grace.  Final Fantasy:  Adventures of Mana(then sell it at retail.)  Final Fantasy:  Dragon Quest 11.  They'd sell to all the blind fanboys who buy anything that says Final Fantasy whether it's good or bad(Final Fantasy Explorers for example.)  It's not like it hasn't worked before with Final Fantasy Legend and Adventure.
