Ys Chronicles 1 

 

Numerous older role playing video games are being ported over the iOS and Android platforms. Ys Chronicles 1 is the most recent one to enter Family Friendly Gaming Universe. The original game had players run into enemies with a sword sticking out. Levels helped determined which side took damage. Sometimes it was both sides. Ys Chronicles 1 upgrades that slightly.

The way Ys Chronicles 1 on the iOS updates that is it has the player auto-attack when they get close to an enemy and they are facing the enemy. Kind of like Zelda video games with the auto jump. Thanks to the speed of the character it still feels a lot like playing chicken with the enemies. Another way of helping Ys Chronicles 1 feel like the original. Which helps this game stay true to its roots.

Ys Chronicles 1 contains a religious system that trains the gamer to worship a false goddess. The religious belief of the overwhelming majority of Americans (Christianity) is not taught in Ys Chronicles 1 nor is it tolerated. It is a real shame in this day and age there is such hatred of Christians. Society should have become more tolerant and inclusive of Christians. Especially when trying to sell a game to Christians.

The music in Ys Chronicles 1 is fantastic, and there are nice details in the graphics. The cut scenes are near anime quality. Gamers will get a fair length of a game for the price paid. Ys Chronicles 1 is also a one time purchase video game. None of that repeat pay to play that ruins so many apps on the market today. Grinding is required in various locales of Ys Chronicles 1.

Blood, gore, partial nudity, and violence are some additional issues families will want to be aware of. I do not recall if all of this content was in the original. I did check the PSP version and saw it was in there. And the ESRB denoted them. Apple's review team missed quite a bit of bad content and descriptors when they rated Ys Chronicles 1. Guess that is why Family Friendly Gaming is here - to point out what they missed. They really should pay us for this valuable service.

The controls in Ys Chronicles 1 are different. Players tap and hold somewhere on the screen. Move your finger in a direction to move the character that way. It can be a real pain when doors are near the bottom of the screen. Plus my wrist hurt after playing for twenty minutes or more. I ran right by doors, enemies, and more in Ys Chronicles 1. Ys Chronicles 1 tries something with the controls, but it does not compare to a D-pad and a few buttons.
