Of all the Final Fantasy games that have been ported to iOS – that's all the way from Final Fantasy I to VI – few have made such an impact as the most recent addition to this treasure trove of past classics: Final Fantasy VII.

Developed by Square (now Square Enix) it was released in 1997 on the original PlayStation and soon developed a huge following, popularising the JRPG genre (that's Japanese Role-Playing Games) outside its country of origin; it is also credited with being a key ingredient to the increasing sales of the PlayStation, and, for its storyline, music, gameplay, to this day frequently finds itself ranked highly on top games lists. Its music, and that of other games in the Final Fantasy series, is a particularly persistent legacy, owing to its main composer, Nobuo Uematsu, and orchestras playing music from the series tour the world on a semi-regular basis.

But I digress. The iOS version (itself a port of the PC version) of Final Fantasy VII joins its already-available precursors on the app store for $19.99, and comes complete with in-built cheat codes; the options to turn off random encounters and also to cap party members' max level are available, presumably ensuring that you don't overlevel as you wander around the huge map completely lost and wondering what to do next.

This happy news follows in the wake of a very long-awaited Final Fantasy VII HD remake for PS4 announced by Square Enix at E3 back in June.

Here's the quite iconic 'One Winged Angel' taken from the game's soundtrack.
