    "I love the concept of Doom & Destiny. The out of place mistaken identity aspect adds lots of fun storyline and humor. The gameplay is good, but the story is what really kept me engaged!"


Did you know that Final Fantasy was supposed to be its creator's last game? Hironobi Sakaguchi, the man behind the gaming franchise want to leave Square Enix on a high. If ever the video game would fail, he would've retired from making video games. And in doing so, he created a game that would have been his final fantasy. Little did he know that he has just made a series home to some of the best RPG games. More than 15 games later, Sakaguchi's game already had remakes and spin-offs, some of which were the best turn-based RPGs for Android.

As far as the history of the best-turn based strategy games is concerned, the first known example was released back in 1976. It was Microchess, a game created by Canadian programmer Peter R. Jennings. Additionally, it was also the first game that was sold for microcomputers. But now, we already have turn-based strategy games for iOS and Android. Basically, strategy games can already be played on various gaming consoles. This is because technology has really taken part in developing a player's gaming experience. And for the series of Final Fantasy games, we look forward to more remakes, as well as spin-offs that can keep us hooked to the franchise.

    "Final Fantasy V is a classic RPG that I would recommend to any fan of the genre. The Android version brings a new art style that is hit and miss with some people. It is based on an ATB as opposed to a turn based system so you may want to turn it to "Wait" to avoid getting overwhelmed at times."
