Final Fantasy: All the Bravest is a Final Fantasy mashup where players rapidly tap on heroes to defeat enemies. It’s a crazy concept that reuses a bunch of Bartz sprites from Final Fantasy V and monsters from other games. You can purchase 35 "legendary heroes" for $0.99 each, but the catch is the character you get is random. If you really want Cloud you may end up buying 10 other heroes before getting him.
Tifa, Rinoa, Auron, Terra, and Red XIII are premium characters. So are a chocobo, moogle, kappa (from Final Fantasy VI), a Magitek Knight, and… a pig.
Where did the pig come from? In Final Fantasy IV, one of the black mages angered at Cecil’s actions turns him and his party into pigs. Palom, Rydia, and Tellah also have a black magic spell that can change enemies and party members into pigs. While the pig is part of Final Fantasy history, it’s kind of like Final Fantasy: All the Bravest’s gag prize or a losing spin on the virtual roulette wheel.
Final Fantasy: All the Bravest is out now for $3.99.
