The fifth instalment in the Dragon Quest series arrives in the App Store today for iOS.

Thought to be one of the best games in the entire series, Dragon Quest V: The Hand of the Heavenly Bride was first released in 1992 exclusively in Japan, but became a fan-favourite in Europe when it was finally released on Nintendo DS in 2009.

The storyline follows the adventures of a young boy on his journey to adulthood as he meets friend and foe alike. The plotline spans three generations, with the boy starting out on his travels with his father, Pankraz, and eventually ending up as a father himself.

If you’ve ever played any Dragon Quest game on any device or console, then you’ll know what to expect—classic hardcore RPG gameplay in a magical environment populated by much loved characters, including the legendary slimes!

As with all previous games in the series, Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, was created by Yuji Horii, with music from Koichi Sugiyama, and game design by manga artist Akira Toriyama (of Dragon Ball fame).

Here are some of the game’s key features:
· Make Friends with Mighty Monsters: The fearsome monsters you face in battle can now become your friends, giving you access to unique spells and abilities—and a whole host of strategic possibilities.

· Converse Freely with your Fellow Party Members: The party chat function allows you to converse freely with the cast of colourful characters who will accompany you on your adventure. So don’t hesitate to turn to them for advice and idle chit-chat whenever the urge assails you!

· 360-Degree Views: Rotate your viewpoint in towns and villages through a full 360 degrees to make sure you don’t miss a thing.

· AI Battles: Tired of giving orders? Your faithful companions can be instructed to fight automatically. Use the various tactics at your disposal to see off even the toughest enemies with ease.

· The Casino: With slot machines, poker, the monster arena and the exciting slime races of the slurpodrome, the casino is sure to provide you with a little light relief when the pressures of adventuring prove too great. Better still, you can exchange the tokens you earn for all kinds of exciting items, making taking a break well worth your while.

· Treasures ‘n’ Trapdoors: Take dice in hand and roll your way around specially designed game boards, enjoying a whole range of exciting events as you go. Some of the things you will see won’t be available anywhere else, and if you manage to make it to the end, you can win some really great rewards.

· Bruise the Ooze is Back! Bruise the Ooze, the slime-smashing mini game introduced in the Nintendo DS version, is back with a bang. Tap the slimes within the time limit to earn points in this super-simple yet fiendishly addictive goo-splatting extravaganza!
