When the world was shrouded in darkness, the Goddess of Mana drew forth the Sword of Mana to smite the eight Benevodons, monsters of destruction. She sealed the horrors inside the eight Mana Stones, bringing the realm back from the brink.

Weak from rebuilding the world, the Goddess changed into a tree and fell fast asleep for years. However, the forces of evil sought to free the Benevodons to gain control of the world. They started a terrible war to further their plot and destabilize the kingdoms.
Peace was at an end.

Mana itself began to disappear from the world and the Mana Tree to wither…

Trials of Mana Reviews

We wanted this game for a while now and because Im a mobile gamer we thought Id see how close to the console version they would get. First thing we noticed is the music in this game is some of the best we’ve heard in a game period. The gameplay is simple enough to control without too much frustration even though we could fully maneuver with our right thumb pressing more than one button on accident. We got over it and Im glad we did. It plays very fluid, voice acting was bearable (Id rather have it then not) auto save is great, graphics ported well, leveling system paced well, large world to explore, new game plus lets you take all of your earnings in to a new game. We only knew that because it was so good with unique storylines we played through twice and for us that says alot (once we beat it we delete it) Overall its a very fun game that if you can get over the controls its worth it.

The controls are good Yeah we dont have a problem with it we dont see what everyones complaining about.

The moveable ring for movement real helps during long hours of play.

We had a great time playing this game, we dont use a controller so we ignore all those negative reviews and for the price we found this game to be fun and well worth the $. We also can see myself replaying it more than once because of the ability to change main character and support characters. Great game!

Im enjoying the the game so far! We can see how adding controller support will make this the best adventure/action rpg for iOS. Im used to playing with on-screen controllers (yeah, Im one of the few that doesnt mind) so we adjusted. We had second thoughts about it at first considering its price tag, but after trying it out we immediately immersed myself. We recommend playing this on an iPad or the larger iPhones, since the UI can take up lot of space. Also, adding controller support will easily make this a perfect the iOS port. Besides the voice acting, the game is phenomenal. If you prefer Japanese dubbed, theres an option to change it to that. This game for iOS has its flaws, but you can really tell the developer team did their best. 5/5.

We will gladly increase the rating when this oversight has been fixed.

Im enjoying the game, love hows theres a NG+ mode. Only thing is that theres camera bugs that make the camera shake, especially in Beuca Island. There hasnt been an update in over a year, so dont expect these bugs to get fixed anytime soon. SquareEnix and their teams need to stop neglecting their AAA games, not worth paying $20. Unless you find it at discount for half off, then you may want to consider it. Youll definitely put a lot of hours into it if you dont mind the touch screen controls.

We seriously love this game and it runs great on mobile. However, it would be SO MUCH better if it had controller support. This game is a port of a console game after all. Please Square-Enix, add controller support for this game!

Please add controller support aka MFI for this game. Everything else is amazing just that issue. Graphics and story are amazing and sound is spot on. Just please add MFI controller support to the game we rather play with our Xbox One controller.

They fix the loading issue dosnt take as long to load as before seem to be more stable to dont over heat as fast. This game needs controller support.

The game is really fun but you should add like updates as a new characters leaves and spells also you should add multiplayer ill give it a five star can you add sound like extra stuff like updates you characters multiplayer its a lot Like The consul version if you see this please add these updates.

This game is really good, but like the title says, please add controller support.

We love everything about this game but it would be so nice if it had controller support for the backbone.

We recently bought 5 Square-Enix games(3 of which are Mana) for our iPhone. What we cant make sense of is, 4 of those games are old titles and STILL compatible with a controller except this ONE crispy game that came out 2 years ago dude, come on we spent like $25 on this game(most expensive out of the 5 we bought). You just GOTTA update this.

First off. The voice acting is game breakingly bad. To the point where you rather skip the story to avoid closing out the app. There needs to be an option for text only. Whoever was in charge of the voice acting, must really hate their job. Second the combat is very clunky, its still possible to beat the harder difficulties and challenge fights with ease. However you need to be aware of your hand placement, depending on which version of the phone you have, if your hand is in anyway touching the screen, your command inputs will not register. Monster hunter freedom unite actually had the controls on point so, we know its possible to have a more sensitive and responsive touchscreen control setup. To where if your hand is touching one section of the screen, it wont lock out other commands. This copy pasta of the game was executed very poorly. We recommend just getting an emulated version of the game or downloading it for the consoles. Not worth the price tag for what you get. At most we would pay $5 for this game, the way its been put together for the IOS release, leaves much to be desired.

This game is fun and the graphics on the iPhone 12 Pro are surprisingly good but it doesnt get 5 stars because the lack of controller support. There is literally no excuse not to add it these days. We will say the touch controls are alright.

We love the mana games and was very excited to get this on iOS but we cant understand why it does not have controller support.

Enable controller support via update, add the Control Settings to customize buttons and shortcuts (especially for the touch screen), and place Dash On/Off Modes on the touch screen. Add Hint display On/Off settings (Hint is annoying for pro players). Add Time of day display On/Off settings (Lumina Time 07:00 – 18:59, Shade Time 19:00 – 06:59). When time changes between Lumina and Shade, make the time cycle turn counterclockwise instead of clockwise (it’s flowing backwards as it is). Plus, we just don’t want to be surprised when time changes in caves/dungeons without warning. Character voices with gratitudes when healed/enhanced by another character. Play "Good Night Theme" while resting at the Inn (Main Character should sleep on the middle bed, Companion 1 on the left bed, and Companion 2 on the right bed). Play "Positive" with full music without stopping when defeating each and every boss, not just for Fullmetal Hugger and Grapplevine. Play "And Other" with full music without stopping when recruiting Faerie, Companion 2 and six elementals, not just for Companion 1, Lumina and Dryad. Add Jadd Stronghold castle map icon (above Jadd Stronghold town map icon) and Ghost Ship dungeon map icon to World Map Menu. Add a new feature to reorganize Move Ring Menu manually (regardless of shortcuts). And most importantly, please bring back Accelerate, Impediment, Beak Scale and Needlion Eye just for movement and attack speed (NOT Dexterity) in battle. The remake of this RPG just doesn’t feel the same without them. Regardless of the impossible, please do this, it’s not too late. Accelerate (wind magic) & Beak Scale (yellow scale item). Boosts ally’s movement and attack speed (2x speed rate). Let Riesz learn Accelerate as a Valkyrie (9 SPRT Points), and Accelerate + as a Starlancer (21 SPRT Points). Make Needlebeak drop Beak Scale, and let the Night Market have Beak Scale in stock for 200 lucre. Ladeeb, Queeneeb and any wind bosses with Accelerate move. Random Buff and Soul Swallow abilities with Accelerate effect at random. Oracle ability with added Accelerate effect. Evil Sword’s Gust with Accelerate effect. Impediment (earth magic) & Needlion Eye (magenta eye item). Decreases enemy’s movement and attack speed (0.5x speed rate). Let Riesz learn Impediment as a Rune Maiden (9 SPRT Points), and Impediment + as a Fenrir Knight (21 SPRT Points). Make Needlion drop Needlion Eye. Hobgoblin, Gobfiend and any earth bosses with Impediment move. Random Debuff ability with Impediment effect at random. Dirt Diversion and Dark Curse moves, Shadow Eye item and Shadow Zed’s Sneakspeak with added Impediment effect. Ghoul’s Heal Hazard, Silkspitter’s Spider Web and Needlion’s Iron Needle with Impediment effect.

How does this have no gamepad support in 2022?

This is one of the best RPGs on the App Store, but no support for controllers is a huge omission that needs to be fixed. This game is difficult to play without game controller support.

We will gladly increase the rating when this oversight has been fixed.

We like the flow of battles very much. And the voice acting is good. It is a premium game and iOS should have more titles like this. We do hope more and more publishers will follow the lead. Thank you guys. We hope you can add controller support and iCloud sync so we can continue enjoying this game on our iPad while we are at home and on our phone while we are in commute. Would be also super awesome if you bump resolution of frames for M1 iPads.

Good game. Story keeps you going. Would like to have the ring right side to be able to customize the position. Currently fixed on middle right screen on a IPad Pro 12.9.

Really? The port of the game is good, great actually. Would be five stars otherwise.

Was looking forward to having a new full fledge AAA rpg to play on our phone. Im running an iPhone 12 Pro Max and am only getting what looks to be less than 30fps and no controller support. Gotta give it a 3 star unfortunately. Great game just not a great port IMO.

Get it together Square. We played this on PC. Its a good game but again.. No controller support. Id refund this if we could. Runs great on the new M1 iPad Pro at least.

No controller support, lengthy load times, and part of the screen is cut off during cutscenes. Definitely go for the console version if you can!

This game on Switch is 10 dollars more and has full controller support. No controller support = 2 stars. Come on Squenix, catch up to modern mobile gaming.

Seriously? Controller support is the number one must have feature. Automatic 3 star deduction. To release a game that was originally made for controllers, without controller support, is just ridiculous.

In this day and age to have controlling your character a complete nightmare makes you wonder if the developer even tried playing it. Even the auto cam is terribly slow and buggy. It might be a good game but got so frustrated trying to play we gave up quickly..
