    More than two weeks ago, we shared with you an article about Pac-Man, a classical game that went free for that week alone. Now, it has come to our attention that classical game Tales of Phantasia, originally launched by Namco back in 1995 for Super Famicom devices (the Japanese moniker for Super Nintendo) has been released for iOS users.

    Tales of Phantasia is available on the iTunes store as a free-to-play game supported by in-game purchases. However, the developers say that you can play from start to finish without having to purchase anything, but it will just take longer than in the scenario where you would’ve purchased optional status boosts for your characters.

    The iOS version of the game is available for iPhone, iPod and iPad users and comes with touch-screen controls, achievements and leaderboards, as well as voice-overs and revamped animations. During the Tokyo Game Show which took place in September, last year, Namco Bandai first launched the game to the Japanese App Store and now it has made its way into the US and Canadian app stores.

    Omg. Are you kidding me? Another nintendo game coming in in iOS?

    Lets get this straight. Mobile versions of nintendo, xbox, pc and other gaming consoles sucks in iOS. So as every shooter games and racing games and console made touch screen controls. Physical is better. They are limited. And they lack the experience.

    Well most, limbo, little inferno, and world of goo are examples of perfect console or pc games made mobile. Just, perfection that they should be made for iOS.

    Whag is great about this is though its a perfect freemium like DT2, which is a shooter game....

    I wouldn't say all of them suck but some of them certainly do. There are just some games that require a mouse and or a controller to be fully effective. Still, there are thousands of awesome games available in the App Store. Good enough for me. :)
