Not worth it, since it's the same version with no new content. It's 0.99 on Play Store rn. If i buy it on iOS too (Already have it on Android) i am not paying more than 0.99, because it was 0.99 so many times. Also those System Requirements are a joke right? This can't be true.

You will not trick me twice SE.

For specs, maybe they did a really good port. I must admit the price is surprising but it maybe has to do with valve taking 30% of every sale + the work behind that port.

Still, it seems like SE is trying to trick as you said.

Well, portage and optimization are 2 different things. It might be a very good port, it means they adapted the program with the PC's possibilities in term of graphics. It would explain those specs.

It might also be the other way - they ported it like crap but even if the port is bad I doubt we can reach such specs with a simple direct port from an iOS/Android program.

Might be wrong, need to try it out.

There's not much they could do to improve this games graphics (also the art style is meant to be minimalistic). Also, the Microsoft Store version only costs half the price and is playable on Windows 10 PCs without any issues, so why would anyone get the Steam version unless it's 50% off? IMO it's fraud to suddenly charge double the price for the PS and Steam ports.

Wait it's $10 for this game on steam? Where is the logic in that pricing? Square Enix is killing this franchise I swear.

I thought paying $4.99 for it was kinda steep -- until I realized how long the game is, for that price. No way in hell am I paying $10 for the same thing in higher resolution.

If the new expansion had been exclusive to PS4/Vita and PC, I would have taken the plunge, but as it stands, no.

EDIT: Ah, it's only 7.99€ for me, on STEAM right now. Says it's 20% off, though. I wonder why.

I'll probably double dip with this version later on.

That would be even worse than the RotTR exclusivity deal.

Maybe as promo since it's also 20% off on PS4 for PS+ members.
