Final Fantasy: All The Bravest

So my husband told me there is a free Square Enix game available in the App Store on iOS. I ran to grab game because that's nearly unheard of for Square Enix. They have one the worst price logic on iOS. People look forward to some of their old games, but not for $20 (includes tax, $16.99/$17.99 without tax). Anyway, I digress. This post is not to complain about prices but to evaluate (review) All the Bravest.

When you start up the game, after title screen you get a bit of a story before you get to actually get to the option page.

This game has Game Center access with achievements if that's important to. When you hit start, you get 12 characters to start with.

The object of the game is to kill mobs (monsters, beasts and bosses) with your crew of characters. The caviat though is that your characters can only take one hit. You loses. Lot of characters like that.  You have to wait for characters to respawn. There is one in app purchase and one timed advantage to help you out.
Timed advantage - before you start a fight there is a red banner above mob that says Fever. Once you hit that, the room goes red and you have unlimited hits and you do not get attacked. This lasts a short while and it's very handy against bosses.

In-app purchase - at beginning of game you are given 10 hour glasses. These bring back your characters back immediately without waiting. After the 10, you have to purchase more hour glasses. It costs $0.99 for 3 hour glasses.

You fight thru multiple levels and multiple worlds. ****Spoiler: the last world is like a space/inter dimensional world. To go further in game, you have to buy more chapters.

I actually finished this game.

My opinion:
This is a mindless game. It appeals to Final Fantasy fans. The jobs of the characters are jobs you see thru-out the series of games. You can also buy premium characters too; for those you love Sephiroth (however you spell his name) you can buy him. To me, the game is not worth it. All you do is run your fingers up, down and across to get your characters to attack. There's really no plot. Just a mindless finger swiping game. It really isn't worth buying the extra chapters unless you really really love mindless games.

Final Fantasy: All The Bravest - found in iTunes App Store for free.
