The original game that sparked a line of slime-fighting JRPGs is now available on iOS and Android.

Square Enix has released the original Dragon Quest for mobile devices. Dragon Quest was originally released as Dragon Warrior in North America for the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1986. We're glad to see that Erdrick's descendant has returned to save Alefgard and stop the dreaded Dragonlord. Dragon Quest has been redone with some new colors and visuals to help optimize your experiences with it on your mobile device. Its directional button can be moved to the left or right side of the screen to help all you lefties out there. Dragon Quest was one of the main influences on the Final Fantasy series, but it kept the first-person style of combat that was implemented by most role-playing games of the early 1980s, such as Ultima.

Dragon Quest costs $2.99 and can be downloaded at the App Store or on Google Play.
