“it works surprisingly well on touchscreens”
- Pocket Gamer

“The developers at DotEmu are masters of the classic game port, and it looks like they're pulling out all the stops for this release.[…] Here's hoping that DotEmu brings more entries in the series to Android in the future.”
- Android Police

“As you would expect from DotEmu, this port is basically perfect from a technical standpoint. […]The actual gameplay is generally intact, however, and that means Ys Chronicles 1 is a must-have for any mobile RPG fan. It's a sheer joy to play, full of a kind of upbeat excitement that doesn't come around all that often. ”
- Touch Arcade

Ys is an action-packed, heroic fantasy JRPG game that immerses you in a beautiful Japanese artistic universe. Originally released on PC and PSP in the 2000s, this remake of the famous franchise’s first episode, titled " Ancient Ys Vanished: Omen", returns in a mobile version especially adapted for touch gameplay.

In Ys, you play as Adol Christin, an adventurous young swordsman. Early in the story, you find yourself on a mysterious beach in Esteria, a kingdom whose cities are besieged by hordes of demoniac creatures. Esteria’s people are depending on you to defeat the demons and free the kingdom. To accomplish your goal, you must find six sacred books containing the history of the ancient land of Ys; books which will also provide you with the knowledge to restore peace. Throughout the game, you’ll gain experience and strength by discovering enchanted weapons and artifacts. Become a mighty knight and destroy your enemies!

Ys possesses a rich and poetic atmosphere with beautiful artistic direction, an incredible soundtrack and a deep story. Ys also stands out thanks to its unique fight mode: you must pounce on enemies to attack them ("BUMP" system). Perfectly adapted to touch devices, this one-touch combat system makes the game even more exciting and enjoyable.

Discover or rediscover the godfather of Japanese action-RPG sagas with this mobile version you can play anywhere!

I love the game! It's the PSP version just with touch controls and achievements and that makes it the best version in my opinion. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't have cloud saves meaning if you delete your App or change your phone your gonna have to start over. But the story music and gameplay is great its a diamond in the rough. Pick up Ys 1 and 2 you won't regret your purchase... Game on! There's infinite possibilities! THOT Full Review

Great version of this classic. First played this on the Master System back in the 80s. The graphics are way better obviously but the story and locations are the same. I'd recommend changing the movement mode to walking as it's just too fast if set to run. There are a few typos in the text but I can live with that. Full Review

I really want to like it, but for some reason the game thinks my gamepad is pressing up, so while all the other buttons work, the game is unplayable. Is there any way to calibrate the joysticks? Full Review

Why is the script so heinously bad? It kills a lot of the enjoyment for me. Instead of being excited to meet a new character or talk to townsfolk, I'm blazing through it as fast as possible because it's riddled with typos, incorrect syntax, and nonsense diction. Give me the script and I'll happily rewrite it for you, DotEmu. Full Review

Why can't I change the game's language? The Russian translation sucks big time. The English translation hasn't been proofread will enough too. You may see some weird lines when talking to NPCs Full Review

Nostalgia when you are in your late 40s means games from the 80s. My favorite part about this game is they updated the graphics and game play, but kept the feel of the original Full Review

Played the PSP version of this game to see how it stacks up to this one, and I have to say the Android version has the most horrible dialogue for some reason. It's downright engrish compared to the PSP version. Why would you not just reuse the dialogue? What happened here? Full Review

Was ok until Vagullion. I don't have a controller so when you reach this point with the touch controls your game pretty much comes to a stop. Can't even imagine Dark Fact with these controls. Full Review

A loving and lovely remake of an important but often overlooked game. Touch joystick is sometimes a little bit funny but other than that this is a great adventure and an interesting history lesson for fans of action rpg's Full Review
