Although Square may be one of the most well known videogame companies worldwide, it hasn't actually explored the confines of mobile gaming at all. Chaos Rings was pretty determined, but otherwise they have been moving on from experimental stuff like Imaginary Range to absolutely conservative bets such as Final Fantasy III remake.
Then here it comes Chaos Rings Omega, 1 Gb of awesome mix of 8bit nostalgia with 16bit gameplay and 3D graphics. In fact, it doesn't nearly need to be introduced, because it's like a game designed by Square back in the 90s but unfeasible till now for technical reasons. However, it might be too late or, in other words, it may not be everyone's cup of tea. Turn based fights may not be as desirable as they once were, characters definitively lack the charisma of FF VII -no wonder why- and a story about a legend forged ten thousand years back unshackled right now and solved but a youth yet brave but unwise warrior cliche and his party of unorthodox archetypes may result too stodgy at current times. And there are zero customization options, a flaw that Square is stubbornly repeating time over time, in my humble opinion.
Anyway, here's the best Square-like RPG game so far (think about it) . No doubt about it. Unfortunately, it might be not enough.
