Re: [iPhone] Secret of Mana
- ik zou graag je ervaring horen, ik twijfel nog
- Heb hem gekocht
- Als er geen iPad HD versie komt ga ik ze aanklagen!
Secret of Mana is a genuine classic in every sense of the word. Squareâ€™s SNES epic is still a hell of a play. There are some issues with this iPhone port like occasionally futzy controls and the loss of multiplayer (come on â€“ use Game Center), but fans that havenâ€™t picked up a version of it elsewhere will still get quite a bit of mileage out of Secret of Mana on iOS.
Overall, the controls are serviceable. Despite its appearance as a hack-and-slash type of RPG, the action in Secret of Mana is pretty spaced out, meaning the occasional slip-up and response delay associated with using a virtual button spread doesn't interfere with the experience too much. That said, whenever the game does require precision or fast actions, you'll probably be left wanting a controller. But do note, again, that the controls are serviceable. You don't need a controller, but hey, wouldn't it be nice? Also, wouldn't it be awesome to own a Ferrari?
And, really, this is a Ferrari of classic RPGs. Go out and give it a spin if you're a fan or a newcomer. It's a great game and this is a pretty good port.

Initially released in Japan in 1993, Secret of Mana took the world by storm with its innovative real-time battle system and gorgeously rendered world. It continues to stand out among other action RPGs for its seamless gameplay that anyone from beginner to veteran can enjoy.
One of the most memorable elements of the Mana series is the Ring Command menu system. With the single press of a button, a ring-shaped menu appears on the screen, where players can use items, change weapons, and do a variety of other actions without needing to switch screens. This Ring Command menu system for which the Mana series is so well known was first introduced in Secret of Mana and has since appeared in most games in the series.
Play as Randi and his two companions, Primm and Popoi, as they adventure all around the world. At the center of our epic story is the mystical power of Mana. Battle the empire in its quest for control of Mana. Befriend the eight elementals who wield the forces of nature itself. Numerous encounters await at every turn.
- Samen met Chrono Trigger de absolute top van de SNES RPG's <3
- Dit is zeeeeer goed nieuws. Hopen dat de besturing idd goed werkt.
- Cool, deze ga ik zeker kopen!
- M-M-Must buy!
- Niice! Heb ook de snes versie maar dit is mooi nieuws. Hopelijk zijn de controls goed dat is wel een flinke valkuil lijkt me.
Secret of Mana hits App Store this month
Beloved SNES action RPG Secret of Mana is due to arrive on the App Store before the end of the month.
In a post on publisher Square Enix's Facebook page, producer Masaru Oyamada, who looks like he's barely out of short trousers, said, "I'm really happy to announce this news.We had submitted Secret of Mana". And now we've got the green light to release it!!"
"Ah… my biggest work this year is over. Now I can take a rest! Woww!" he added.
Oyamada wasn't willing to fess up to an exact release date, insisting, "The actual release date is still 'secret' but we'll release it soon in this month. I swear it's soon! I swear again IT'S REALLY SOON!! We hope you'll enjoy the Christmas and new year holidays with Secret of Mana!"
The iOS version is expected to be a faithful port of the original, albeit with revamped visuals. Take a look at the rather lovely screenshots below for a better idea of how it's looking.
A sequel of sorts to Game Boy RPG Final Fantasy Adventure, the original Secret of Mana was released way back in 1993 on the SNES, netting considerable acclaim for its innovative co-op gameplay. There have been a bunch of not-nearly-as-good sequels since, of which the dismal 2007 DS effort Heroes of Mana is the most recent.
Ik speel hem al op de Snes, maar het is natuurlijk een leuk alternatief om hem zo onderweg verder te spelen. (of je moet hem nog niet hebben)
