    I've seen what he says around other forums too but come to think of it, maybe he decided it will be his alter ego. I mean what more can I say; his name is madreviewer.

    Bought this off the strength of the first, and while the graphics have seen slight improvement, I'm not digging the janky framerate on iPhone 6. Even a reboot doesn't solve it.

    Also, where are the button control options? Working with how they are positioned now makes for a less enjoyable experience for me. It also seems like everything is zoomed out more.

    Hope these kinks get ironed out, because I was really anticipating this release.

    With all that said, however, the core game is fantastic. I love the new story mode, as I was clamoring for more of it. Essentially a redux, I have only a little buyers remorse, because of aforementioned issues with the game.

    That guy's very existence is to be critical and edgy about every game release and I think that his existence is a product of our own criticism. It's like a Frankenstein monster of criticism.

    I'm really impressed, the graphics are super sharp and the animations are pretty much one of the best I've ever seen on mobile. Personally I've got no Fps issues on my iPad Air 2. Overall this feels like a very good mobile game that evolved into a very good game. It scored an average rating of 9/10 on steam and that's not a coincidence, knowing people usually hate mobile games on steam.

    Please tell me if you had the Game Center issue ruined it for you( I mean do you have to log in before you start playing the game) just like implosion?

    Anyone know the installed sized of this? After getting FF IX, a 1.38 GB download is putting me off. It's understandable given the enhanced graphics and more content. Just wondering how much, if any, bigger it gets on your device.

    As a side note, why does the generated TA OP say 482 MB when that's not even close to what it is on the store?

    The AppStore itself also indicates a much smaller size although it's usually much larger after installation. Had the same question, really curious as well.

    Thanks. Odd that the App Store has 1.38 GB when they typically show the download size.

    Was worried it may be over 2 GB installed. This, although still tough with some recent purchases, may be doable.

    Wow this looks amazing. Anyone that played the first noticed big differences?

    I seem to recall levels in the original were timed (at least player performance was), and that might have been why I stayed away.

    As a fleshed-out experience with a greater focus on narrative (paraphrased from this thread), are we free to play at a variable pace to no detriment?

    Implosion doesn't work for me, but this one works fine.

    Yup, you're rite as rain. Just reinstalled Implosion yesterday and it won't load without GC. Though I didn't have to go to AP mode. 2 consecutive reboots did the trick and GC miraculously popped up and had been unseen for months now.

    I second this question! I enjoyed the first one, but felt I could have done without the time attack. Longer levels but still on a timer doesn't really appeal. Have they killed the clock?
