    I've had this freeze on me once. The control system is a bit fiddly too. I think I've been spoilt by Disgaea

    EDIT but the game recovered my progress

    I play the iPhone version on my ipad1 with retina pad. Ever since the last update it honestly looks great.

    The font is absolutely awful on iPad.

    Do you mean it's awful on the iPhone version played on an iPad, or the iPad version?

    The iphone version at 2x looks terrible on the iPad. However, if you use RetinaPad to get the proper resolution (an option that, frankly, should be available on the vanilla iPad) it looks and runs fantastic. The fonts are a little retro, but they are sharp pixels instead of fuzzy blurs, and easy to read.

    I've got the iPad2 and I've never had it (the iphone version) hang or suffer any notable slowdown yet.

    I'm kind of torn, because it would probably be nicer using the full screen (although it's pretty nice at 2x) but not that much nicer that I'd leap at the chance to pay another 20 bucks for it.

    Can't comment on whether it's worth upgrading from iPhone, but I'm very happy with the iPad-native version. Text is highly readable.

    Everything is a little pixelated (characters, text, etc.) but no worse than I'd expect from a PS1 -> iPad port. The game depth is miles ahead of pretty much any other SRPG on the tablet. Disgaea and Tactics Ogre are my faves on other consoles, but this is the best bet by far on iOS.

    I know this might sound like a stupid question, but can anyone explain retinapad and how to get it.

    *sigh* Another letdown in my quest to play this game. FFT was a game I wanted to play for years, but never got around to buying the hardware to play it. Then it comes out for iPhone, but for some reason it kept crashing on my 3GS. I played it for a bit on the wife's iPhone 4, but she wasn't real keen on sharing so had to wait until I got my 4S. It started crashing on it also, and I finally did a fresh restore and I was finally able to get into the game.

    Now the iPad version finally arrives, and I'm getting headaches after playing for a half hour or so. I'm guessing it's the pixelated characters that I'm trying to focus on, but no matter what it is I'm either going to have to wait for the promised higher res graphics, or go back to the small screen on the iPhone.

    Or maybe I'm simply destined to never really play FFT. :eek:

    I'm a huge fan of the turn based strategy games. I'm playing the psp version upscaled to a 55 inch tv. A lot easier to see that's for sure but the pixels get a little smoothed out, but not fuzzy per say. Anyone notice any problems with the touch controls? Big fingers on some games is an annoyance. Where's my stylus at? ...well I'll just wait till it goes down a tad in price, since I just purchased the psp one for 11.99 :(

    Can't wait for a fire emblem port :)

    Hold on, check my post in the iPhone version. I had an issue with the menus disappearing during my play though. It might be wiser to wait and see if anyone else is having this issue first

    Blasted. I saw this but really wonder if it would be better to bust out my PSP and load up that version...

    Have there been any improvements to the menu systems?

    I can confirm that there are no issues with the iPad version, and the improvements to the unit graphics are very noticeable, especially if you open the old and new versions side by side.
