Square Enix, you guys are dropping the ball on Android games! There are so many amazing RPGs and other great games on Android for free and you're the creators of one of the best RPG series ever and you don't have any. It's nice that you've ported some ancient Final Fantasy games to Android but you would do much better porting something newer (FF IX for example), offering half of it for free, and then charging the full price for the full version. As far as this game goes, it only fills up about 60% of my screen and just doesn't come close to any other TD game I have.

How to use CRYSTAL DEFENDERS Lite for PC and MAC

You can run all Android games and applications on your PC or MAC computer. Using a free software called Bluestacks, you don't need to purchase anything but games or applications it self if it isn't free.

  • Download Bluestacks from this link.
  • Install BlueStacks from installation file with following the on-screen instructions.
  • Once Bluestacks is installed add your Google account in it.
  • Type CRYSTAL DEFENDERS Lite in Search bar and install it.
Now you can use CRYSTAL DEFENDERS Lite on your PC or MAC.

Screen resolution I love the game, I had it when it first came out on the iPhone. I played the demo again on my droid to see how bad the resolution was since everyone was complaining about it. It looked just fine to me. I purchase the full version, the game occupies less than half of my screen. It's so small that it's unplayable. The demo is not an accurate representation of the full game.

Issues I love this game, I honestly do, but I'm having issues with this version. It won't save properly and it crashes at aroung Wave 9. I'm not sure if it's just my phone, but I can't continue until the crashing is fixed. Device is an older Samsung Exhibit 4G. On a side note, it's a little out of sync on the touch screen, but it's fine once you get used to it.

Still fun, but time passes I used to kill the PSP version of this game, but now I suck on fire. I guess I've just become a worse person. I accept that, everything gets worse as you age. Your vision goes, reaction times slow. I used to get erect, finish, and be able to go again in minutes. Now everything takes longer, and sometimes I don't finish at all. Anyway, the complaints about the small screen size are warranted, but like most things in life there are ways to compensate, like bifocals, larger screens, and Viagra.

UNINSTALLED Sad Panda :( Had to uninstal off my Galaxy tablet because after the SE logo came up it went to a white screen and froze I uninstalled and reinstalled and same issue happened. Sux cux I loved it on my xbox.

Paid version does not scale to full screen I really like playing this game, but the free version only comes with one map. I tried the paid version and it's still like others have said--the screen DOES NOT scale to full screen. I decided not to put up with that and quickly refunded my purchase. I would like to buy this if this issue is fixed.

Crashes Is it supposed to exit after so many minutes because its the lite version? I'm sorely displeased in this fact if it is, because other than that, its a great game. Please change this, and I'll gladly change my rating

Waste of time I sure don't want to waste $5.99 on the full version. Boring, wait, beyond boring. Hey, Square why don't you stop making lame apps, and try making a real final fantasy game for a console? Maybe you should stop focusing on mobile crap, and actually produce something authentic for your fans?

Best for all I find a game like this that has so many problems yet potential should be taught a lesson by giving negative review and rating that way sales plumit and they fix it

Love this game I play it on my xbox and was excited to try the mobile version. But the game won't even let me deploy any characters. I try to drag one out like it says and i only get an empty square no matter where i try to place it. Extremely disappointed.

This game is pretty fun. It's not able to be full screen on the paid version and it's stupidly hard. I don't think it's worth 6 dollars maybe 2. Kingdom rush is way better and a third of the price. So I would give 5 stars if it was way cheaper and played full screen

Galaxy S4 User I bought the full version only to find you have a screen so tiny it is unplayable. immediately refunded the game. If you have a high resolution device don't bother with anything but the lite version till they fix it.

Would loved to had played it more but... The game stops working not even a minute into the first battle after setting troops. Either its me, or this thing is borked. Seriously Square, I expected better out of you.

Better than the full version I just bought the full version after months of wanting and waiting to buy it. I regret it. $7 I'll likely never get back. Screen size game play is smaller than lite version. Can hardly read text & place characters where needed

Adore it My favorite part of this app is the Final Fantasy aspect. It reminds me of my childhood. Unless you're amazing at this game and feel it's not challenging enough, you really don't need to buy the app. The free version only offers 1 map, sure, but it's quite entertaining. I haven't made it past wave 18 out of 30 but I intend to lol and unless I beat the one map several times to the point of boredom, I don't see why I need to buy the app. The 30 free waves are challenging enough :)

Don't get fooled!! The full version is horrible resolution and you'll regret every penny spent.

Needs work The quantity of dudes and spaces to put those dudes is ridiculous. They need to make the guys more powerful with bigger sprites on bigger spaces.

Not bad Too many times when I would get to the end the program would freeze and then just shutdown. Other than that it's fun and well put together.

Kickass Castle defender mixes with FF. Sounds good to me! Think I may purchase full now Ive beaten this one

It just doesn't work I loved it on my ipod touch but the android version seems broken. Loads of the in app buttons don't work and it doesn't let you deploy any units to play.

Time - Pass Just a time pass game. Not too good but not bad also. An average one with fine graphics; maybe it's designed for beginners.

Poor Really bad port, no support for high resolution. Both on HTC one and nexus 7 screen isn't adjusted propperly . Wanted to get the real game but if the lite version isn't working properly... Won't get the real game. SE you updated CD for iOS and made it HD do it for Android too... Because the sprites don't look HD.

I love this game. I would have given it all stars but it's only has one level I can't complain to much because it was free.

Won't Play at Full Resolution The XBox 360 version was one of my all-time favorite time wasters, but for some reason the Android version insists on only taking up a small portion of the screen, leaving gaping black borders all around instead of scaling to the full display. What a terrible waste; makes it really hard to play on modern Android devices.

Poorly designed And weak compared to better tower defense games. Kingdom rush and bloons a better games!

Doesn't run in full screen. Only use about a quarter of my screen which is too small to play it. Seems like square enix neglects its Android releases most have game breaking issues. Droid turbo

AKA: Final Fantasy Defenders This is a Final Fantasy themed defense game. Square Enix should have used the Final Fantasy name in the title so people would understand what this game is. Fans of Final Fantasy will enjoy.

Meh Port Functional Port. Looks Horrible on my phone and not very intuitive. When your playing you more or less expect the game to function like a game. This functions like a very beta app. Not a game. Lags on my phone too which is mind boggling.

Decent It should be free or $1 for Android, seeing as there's much better out there for free. If you brought it to PlayStation Vita then I would probably pay up to $10 if you gave us a Platinum Trophy.

First Level for free Probably won't get the full game since others say it's not fullscreen but this demo is worth plenty fun on its own

App issues with Android 6.0 After updating the device to Android 6 Marshmallow, the game suffers from slow speed and sttutering. Was considering on buying the full version but this hasn't been updated since 2013 and doesn't seem likely that they'll follow up. Too bad square enix hasn't made an updated version


Holy crap, tiny screen! Nexus 6 here.... Tiny play screen surrounded by blackness! And I loved this game, too, on other platforms. Disappointed!

FF fans need only apply. I own this game for both my PSP and PS3. This game is some addicting, it's crazy fun. I like how you can use the main classes and the advanced classes on the harder maps. Great game for FF fans.

Itty bitty living space. The game only displays in the center of my screen. There more black border around the game than game itself! Medium to high resolution screens need not purchase!

Force closes Always force closing before the battle is over doesn't make me wanna purchase it.

5 star Great game. IMO make a FF tactics game with a pvp system for android based off the nintendo DS game.

Square doesn't care Full version is about 1/4 of the screen. It would only take about one line of code for them to fix this. I guess they can't be bothered...

CrystalStegman I wanna hav u ova n sux my cux luv u in n out up n down hard fux u fox

Boring. You either set up defense right or lose. Not much room for improvising.
