-------------------------------------------------------------You can pick your jaw up from off the floor from when you saw that $9.99/£7.49 price tag. You can then consider that this is a full fledged RPG made exclusively for mobile platforms, as it originally released on iOS (nearly three years ago) for $12.99. Not only that but it's from Square Enix, an important player to have on Windows Phone. The graphics and depth of the game are closer to that of an XBLA offering compared to most titles available on Windows Phone, so it has that going for it as well. This still might be priced out of your comfort zone but at least you have the facts now.
·The size of the game may result in long download times.
·A WiFi connection is recommended for downloading.
·This game requires approximately 1GB of memory. Please ensure that you have the necessary storage available before downloading.
