Not sure how it would work to include ratings, it's not likely unless you have a smooth idea on how to implement ratings.

Hmm I was going to say something like: Get an average score for each game from the most reliable sites. But then I realized you've already posted a lot of games, which has been time consuming for you, so thanks.


But what about if you bolded the "must have" games?

But what about if you bolded the "must have" games?

I think it would be better is users posted here their own "must have" games so that it wouldn't be so subjective in my part. If it were up to my vote games like Knighturn, Fall of Angels, or Henry & the Psionic Overlords would top the charts so my opinion doesn't necessarily reflect popular trend. In part I made the list to highlight unsung gems in preferred RPG sub-genres.

As people make recommendations, if there is enough input, I could add a post with a recommended game consensus or summary with link on first post.

Fixes...

Done, thanks.

You should add Monster Kingdom to the Monster Collecting/Hunting category. It feels very much like Pokemon, and has a great deal of strategy. There's even a live arena where you fight other people's teams in real-time.

There doesn't even seem to be a TA thread about it. Is it as IAP-heavy as it looks?

Not really. You start off with 20 mushrooms, which can be used for various things. Mushrooms can be used for things like energy recharge/doubler, experience gain boost for a certain amount of time, name change, equip-able items, in-game cash, and rare monsters. There isn't an absolute need to buy IAP as you can do just fine training on your own. There are no "over-powering" IAP items, it's a game of skill, and a little bit of luck.

Nice list.

Can someone explain to me the difference between hack and slash vs Krpg?

Thanks.

undeadcow

Can someone explain to me the difference between hack and slash vs Krpg?

Some of the sub-genres bleed over but here is my logic. A hack n slash game emphasizes melee combat (albeit sometimes repetitive button mashing) to a greater extent than KRPGs.

KRPGs emphasize specialized character builds (multiple classes, more elaborate skill tree). KRPGs also differ from hack 'n slash in that KRPGs are usually top down and characterized by lots of grinding or fetch quests with an emphasis on item collection/use. Some KRPG classes such as fighters might operate similarly to a hack 'n slash dynamic.

Hack 'n slash games are not necessarily top down and have more emphasis on melee combat than KRPGs but may be more one-dimensional on the side of action/adventure button tapping. Hack 'n slash games emphasize violence with little other goal or driving plot (beat everyone up till you get to the Devil then beat him up too a la Diablo).

I placed both these categories next to one another because I anticipated some question about the difference and it is open for discussion. There are some games that might sit on the fence between these two categories (such as Aurum Blade). Is this an agreeable distinction between these two sub-genres? I can amend/combine sub-genres on community consensus.

Edit: I added Devil May Care 4 Refrain to the list under hack 'n slash.

How about Tacticial Soldier: Undead Rising in the Strategy RPG section?

Done. Thanks.

If I can figure out how I would like to rework to links on the first page to direct the user to that point within the thread rather than just the solo post.

First of all this thread is amazing! It has been very useful to find RPGs for iOS. I first started looking for something like this last year and was thankful to find lists like this on this site and a few others.

I've started building out a database of RPG games for iOS using the data I found here and on another thread. The site is called iOSRPG.com (http://iosrpg.com) and is still under heavy development.

Big things you can do with iosrpg.com include:
- List of RPG's by type (like turn-based, action, puzzle, etc)
- mix and match filters like type, device, price, etc to easily find the game you want
- Up-to-date pricing information, collected daily for all games in the system
- Add games to your Owned list and Want list
- Track price changes on games using the Price List
- Rate and Comment on games in the system

I've only got about 150 setup so far, but I'm adding to the database every day and by the end of the week I think I'll have 300-400 in the system. I plan to have some other things on the site in the coming weeks like featured games, reviews, etc.

My goal is for iOSRPG.com to be as useful as possible for RPG lovers like myself to quickly find games for iOS devices. I hope some of you will check it out and give me some feedback to whether you like the system or not, ideas to improve, etc. I think it could grow into a huge resource for RPG games for iOS.

To undeadcow - I added your original list to the About System page on iOSRPG.com because your list has been extremely helpful in populating the site.

To everybody else - I'm looking for volunteers to help add to the database. I plan to add more things like tags and a better search engine as we go along, so if anybody is interested, please contact me at firestream@gmail.com

I've been digging through some of the games in these lists, but haven't really found what I'm looking for. Is there a good RPG that's local multiplayer and more in the dungeon crawler vein? Dungeon Hunters isn't a bad option (games like Dungeon Siege and Champions of Norath also fit the bill), but I wondered if there were others like this.

On a similar note, and far less likely to be around it seems, I'd ideally like to find a game that's like HeroQuest (old board game http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HeroQuest) that allows for multiple players in a turn based arena, and the off chance that one could act as a DM?

Thanks for any input!

The closest that comes to mind is the Graal games but not auite a match. I don't think iOS has many good mmo games since oddly few seem to take off like Graal has.

So, I'm looking for another RPG that has similar cute graphics AND a fun story. Games like Zenonia & Secret of Mana aren't as good graphically and are nowhere near as funny as CGS.

Xenome Ep 1 is good (a promised follow-up may still be in the works or indefinitely delayed). I understand Earth and Legend is good (but not as good as Aralon) and it's by reputable developers of Crusade of Destiny. Either Xenome or Earth and Legend would probably be a good bet.

Necromancer Rising is a precusor to Mission Europa that uses an older version of the same engine so you're better off getting Mission Europa instead.

The Birth games look thrashy to me but I haven't played it yet; same for Last Crusaders.

I'd advise waiting on Crusade of Destiny because although it's a recommendable game the playing world is less detailed than more recent western RPGs so for your time/money starting with a more recent product might satisfy you more. The contols are really smooth and it's eventually worth getting.

I downloaded Magic 2013, Duels of Fate, Ascension, and Shadow Era ( Along with Sacred Odyssey to play a Zelda type game ) and so far I really enjoy Shadow Era. Duels of Fate, I like that it shows animations and all that for cards, but all I did was start the app, select single player, and instantly I am in the fight with little to no instructions. I haven't lost in five fights but I feel like the transition from brand new to the genre to fighting went really rough.

I have never considered MTG as an RPG even though you could argue that you are playing the role of a Wizard looked and a deadly mage battle with his or her arch rival, and there are RPGs that use cards in the Pen and Paper realm such as Torg, Deadlands, or the Savage World.

Still in the end analysis I would classify it as a card game with RPG elements.

But Ash is amazing! Sure it's 16-bit instead of CGS's 32-bit, but the story is so well written! And clever dialogue is a plus! Actually laughed at it. Gonna dig in more tonight. Thanks!

I've also found Dragon's Odessey: Frane. And though it's not turn-based, it has huge depth when it comes to adventuring and exploring as well as a PC sized story (being its a port). Great RPG for iOS. I highly recommend it!

I haven't checked if it's on the list; but one great ccg/tcg which only features SINGLE PLAYER is Alien Menace, so add it if it's not already recognized on the list. It's no longer in the AppStore currently (actually, I think it might still be in the French AppStore), but hopefully, it will be back.

Disappearing apps is a good point; in a perfect world I'd like to delete items from the list that aren't avaliable because unattainable RPGs defeats the point of finding new gems. However, I'm not sure how to track when apps are removed (and some like Sword & Pokers yo-yo on and off App Store).

I still have AlienMenace on my device (got it free and still in my queue) and am surprise it's now awol. Too bad there's not some public domain graveyard archive where abandoned intellectually properties can be dropped off for whoever is interested.

Edit: Thinking about it more if I notice something is pulled I'll keep it listed and add a symbol indicating missing in action status, that might help given the back and forth with how apps are removed and sometimes put back.

It's interesting you mention this because I face the same dilemma on my site: you never know when an app is suddenly going to reappear.

I keep entries up, because I figure it's still interesting information, and there may still be some people playing the game who would appreciate the links I try to post to help-forums, and when I get a chance I update the game info with the fact that it has been removed, but I wonder if I should put them into a separate "currently dead" list?

EDIT: re Avadon/Avernum, I would say definitely Western RPGs or Classic RPGs. They're not really action though as they are turn-by-turn combat. I wonder if your list would benefit from a "Classic" category where you could also put retro-style RPGs?

EDIT 2: I just noticed that you linked to my site, which is really kind! I'm sticking a button on my site to link back to this thread.

Your site was a revolutionary find for me early on and a big motivation in development of this list, rpg-site.com doesn't get the attention is deserves in my opinion. I use to check it nearly daily for the game catalog and the not-updated-enough blog. I am flattered by your link. Rpg-site.com is a great reference for finding quality iOS RPG games at a glance.

For example, I noticed Tap Quest on rpg-site.com then when it showed back up was enthusiastic because I assumed it was forever gone (and it's a decent game); same with the ultimately disappointing Luna Story. Since you keep more detailed information I think that is much more helpful in reference to pulled games. However, as the App Store market ages and frequency of pulled apps increases it might be good to bury them in a separate list.EDIT: re Avadon/Avernum, I would say definitely Western RPGs or Classic RPGs.

I am hoping to see more games of this type in the near future and am hopeful with Baldur's Gate there will be a line of imitation and successors (maybe eventually Ultima games).

IMO you should keep removed apps on the list. According to my PC version of iTunes, I have over nine thousand apps (which is a fraction of what I HAD, I was forced to abandon my original account in late 2010 or so); I use your site as often to check if some familiar names still show up in Appshopper as for anything else. (I made sure Alien Menace was still in the store before deletion, I just didn't count on the fact that it would disappear from the AppStore a couple months later when I grew nostalgic for its gameplay. turns out that I DO have it in iTunes, though).

Removal has absolutely nothing to do with the quality, or lack thereof, of a game.

Aside from the common "reappearances" apps often make, another important element of the AppStore to note is that (I believe) it is possible to hide an an app from future purchasers, while leaving it available for re-download for those who did DL it while it was available.

My suggestion would be to mark the removed apps in some prominent way, perhaps a diagonal red stripe with unavailable written on it across the screenshot, or something to that effect.

Wanted to re-download Dungeon Solitaire today after playing a few games I've purchased but had yet install over the past month, all hopelessly uninspired and unimaginative.

Gone from the AppStore...WTH? Goddammitsomuch, I swear Apple has it in for me, because I probably tie up more of their bandwidth than anyone here not named Syntheticvoid or Sanuku.

I'm going to wait until the next time I'm completely blitzed and then jailbreak my phone, so I can use the "real" backup features that are unavailable in Apple's absurdly locked down devices and ecosystem. I'll never plug my phone into my pc sober, after watching that POS known as iTunes wipe my apps off (apps that began with the letters n-z of the alphabet) of my old iPod touch several times, all because of some damn duplicate file name. BFD, tell me before you screw my device up and just let me unplug, ferchristsake.

I just stumbled on Spectral Souls, not sure how I missed that one but it loosk promising. Also need to clear space for Bard's Tale.

I noticed that App Shopper retains the description and screenshots for games after deletion but removes them from it's searchable database (as with original Tap Quest (http://appshopper.com/games/tap-quest)); this is a cool feature if only App Shopper's deleted game inventory was searchable.

I just read up about the upcoming iPad/PC Ultima game, now all I need is an iPad... Quest for the Avatar on NES rocked.IMO you should keep removed apps on the list...I am leaning this way; one day I will find the time to determine what is removed or not.Great list but Aralon seems to have disappeared from the Western RPG list.Thanks, I re-added it. I think I accidentally deleted it last update.I'm going to wait until the next time I'm completely blitzed and then jailbreak my phone, so I can use the "real" backup features ...I'll never plug my phone into my pc sober, after watching that POS known as iTunes wipe my apps off... tell me before you screw my device up... +1 I'm jailbroken because I hate Apple's screwy iTunes product (and never pirate games). Ironic how Apple has lended to iTunes disposability by supporting cloud saves.

Thank you! I don't really spend much time promoting it because really it's a labour of love rather than a commercial site.

Oh and given I don't update that often, if you just want alerts to when there are new listings, I always Twitter them (@istara) - I've also set my Twitter feed up to Tweet new RPG articles on TouchArcade, for my own benefit really as I couldn't get the TouchArcade app to feed me that easily.

Ironically, not long after I created it, I posted about it in here (trying to be really polite and non-spammy) and got an infraction point for mentioning a "personal blog". Yet I can have a huge great link to it in my signature every time I post, which feels far more spammy in some ways ;)

Re TapQuest: that one appeared to come back a few months ago - maybe a year ago now? - but sadly the expansions-download never seemed to work properly. It also appeared to have some bug whereby it kept forgetting all the levels you had cleared or something, possibly it was because I still had the old TapQuest on, I forget. I dropped by the TapQuest blog a few times but there were no updates.

So sad. I hate it when great games go abandonware. I once wrote a post on it (which I managed to overwrite) but - and sorry for this tangent but I just feel like sharing! - three amazing abandonware games which I would adore to see ported to iOS - or Android too I suppose - are:

1. Jewel of Arabia: I even managed to get in touch with one of the original devs, but they had no plans to revive it

2. Mazera: amazing game for Palm OS, a sort of RPG adventure puzzle hybrid, so varied and original, and with nice secrets

3. Systems Twilight: an amazingly deep, complex, challenging and satisfying puzzle-RPG, with possibly the most brilliant ending of any game ever, people either solved it by accident or (as in my case) managed to get it off a newsgroup or something, I guess the ending possibly couldn't be done in iOS/other operating systems, but oh it was so clever. And strangely satisfying. PM me if you want a spoiler!

Anyway if I could plug just one game for sheer retro RPG joy - it would be Yipe5. Anyone who hasn't given that a try really should do. It's lovely and it's funny and it's original and quirky and satisfying (and that's speaking as someone who literally found zero of its "secrets" - I need to replay at some point!)

Oh and I can't wait for the "new" Baldur's Gate, though I'm going to get the Mac version. I can't really get into iPad gaming, I find the device too large to use in bed and don't always carry it around with me unlike my iPhone, which is welded to my hand pretty much.

Ultima Forever (http://toucharcade.com/2012/08/06/new-details-on-free-to-play-online-rpg-ultima-forever-heading-to-pc-and-ipad-soon/) is an uncoming "free-to-play" cross platform MMO based on Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar. I am causciously optimistic. There aren't many other games like Baldur's Gate coming that I am aware of but I am sure there will be others.

Every few months I read of another Aralon-style game, but I have yet to see any of them released. Going by ones I've added on Google+ there are:

Ortus (not sure what platform though) (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tedjazzastudios/ortus-the-rpg-of-your-dreams)
Ravensword 2 (no news since March though) (http://www.appolicious.com/games/articles/11330-ravensword-2-tops-flood-of-games-coming-out-of-gdc-2012)
The Shadow Sun (last news June 2011 when it was pushed back to Autumn 2011) (http://www.ossianstudios.com)

Spiderweb Software will likely continue to keep porting to iOS as well as developing for it (eg the new Avadon series) so that's something great to look forward to. iPad only though not iPhone :(

That boldest part made me smile. I'm guessing (call it intuition) that you are familiar with the mostly-defunct website Home Of The Underdogs, which, during it's actively maintained stage was one of the greatest websites ever.

They had a game listed there but never a download link; I think it was somehow available directly from the publisher. I desperately wanted to try it out but never had a chance.

Fast forward a decade, maybe more...what do I see on the AppStore? The very game I had wanted to play for a decade (probably more) and NEVER forgot about...King of Dragon Pass :)

King of Dragon Pass is sooooo next on my major iTunes purchase list. Along with Starbase Orion.

Also, does anyone here have Alternate Reality (either one)? I am really tempted to hit 'buy', but I am thinking that the letter boxed game screen (due to the virtual kepboard) would be made of myopia.

Oh yes! I remember that site, and trying to get different old bits of abandonware to work. It was there (or similar) that I finally managed to replay and complete Heroes of Khan, fondly remembered from my Amstrad CPC-464. Back then there was no way to get a walkthrough/cheats/help, and for years it haunted me, then over a decade or so later the internet finally brings it all together for me ;)

I now have to check out King of Dragon Pass. From Appshopper it looks most like an interactive gamebook - would that be correct?

I've just started a mini-overhaul of my site, adding short descriptions under each game name. I figured it would save someone the effort of clicking through if they hate all KRPGs, or be an extra alert if they do like JRPGs, or whatever.

Thank you! I have just finished the latest overhaul adding short descriptions below each game title (more extensive information is there if you click, it just saves you wasting a click eg if you hate all MMORPGs) which took many more hours than I thought it would. I also had to remind myself what a hell of a lot of games were, as well as update some of the game pages, etc for games that have been withdrawn.

I will take a look at those games the next chance I get!

I'm now thinking of putting on an "upcoming" games page for the fun of it. I should probably get a big "ABANDONED" graphic ready, given the amount of exciting titles promised that never materialise.

New additions:
Judge Dread: Countdown Sector 106 - gamebook
Oyayubi Quest – typing / rpg hybrid
DungeonSweeper – minesweeper / RPG hybrid
ORC: Vengeance – hack ‘n slash?
Dragon Town – puzzle / RPG hybrid
Dungeon Defiler – “dungeon crawler”
The Goblin Forest – gamebook
Zebulon – gamebook
Vampire Boyfriends – a gamebook (technically RPG, I think)

Also I am marking the Fighting Fantasy games and pulled/dead due to the end of their licensing deal; I understand the Fighting Fantasy games will go to TinMan (Gamebook Adventures people) so they will probably re-appear.

Great - it's up! (http://www.rpg-site.com/upcoming.html) Though I'm already fearful that Shadow Sun has been abandoned which is a shame because it looked utterly brilliant and so original. I guess the game journalist in me should try and email the devs of some of these games.

I've also created a new twitter account - @rpg_site (https://twitter.com/rpg_site) - to solely focus on iOS RPG update. One of the things it should also do, assuming ifttt.com does its magic, is tweet every new RPG update that TouchArcade posts. So feel free to subscribe if that would be useful to you. I made it solely for my own benefit, to alert myself of new RPGs (I also set up an email alert which emails me every TouchArcade RPG update).

I use my iPad to play games, so that's what I look for - also an iOS device, just featured less here. Definitely not disparaging the greatness of the list, just making a comment.

Oh. Well, you can play virtually all iPhone games on your iPad. I don't even have an iPhone. That doesn't make me any less interested in "iPhone games".

I have an iPad Mini, and unless there's an iPad-specific app for a game, I can't play it. I'm certainly interested in RPGs, which is why I'm reading the thread in the first place, but playing games on my iPhone hurts my eyes.

Again, I wasn't - and am not - trying to criticize the list. It's an excellent resource of epic proportions and clearly a lot of work went into it. I was just making a comment, because I can't play ones made only for the iPhone, even though I am interested (hence my disappointment).

I also can't speak for the entirety of the list - but most of the puzzle RPGs listed are (sadly) not universal. I went through the App Store and searched each title.

Not that I know of, but I'm fairly new to the forum and haven't done a full search - so such a thread could certainly exist. It now seems to be the norm for most games to be made/released as universal, I just happened upon a patch that wasn't. There are universal games on the list; I don't know of any that are iPad only.

Is there a list dedicated to iPad only RPGs?That's a good idea; time permitting I could add one but it might become messy if there get to be a lot of iPad titles. In the main list when i see an iPad exclusive I try to indicate [iPad]; so you could potentially search this thread for term "iPad.". Many games are also Universal (Bastion, Silversword, Battleheart, Dungeon Plunder, Questlord, etc).

Some iPad exclusives off top of my head are: Companions, Baldur's Gate, Brigands and Barbarians HD, Avernum, Avadon, Dungeon Masters... there are more, I'm sure.

Where did you get that idea? In the App Store, if you search for games you can choose between searching for iPad-optimized games, and searching for iPhone games, but either will run on your iPad. If it lets you buy and download it, then it will run on your device. There are almost no iOS apps that you can't run at all. I play lots and lots of "iPhone games" in my iPad.

Oh, really? I just got my iPad earlier in the month and was told (by the place I bought it from) that iPhone-only apps wouldn't work on my iPad. I assumed they knew what they were talking about so I didn't double-check. Here I've been eyeing all sorts of apps I thought were iPhone only like a puppy with my nose pressed against the glass this whole time. ;)

Thank you for telling me! I may not be heard from for several months.

Are there any good Mystery/Crime/Detective RPG's out there? I wish they had a 16 bit style RPG about a modern day detective rising through the ranks of the police department until he cracks the big homicide cases. He could upgrade armor, weapons, and CSI type tools. He could solve puzzles and maybe even have turn based combat or interrogations.

Man, if I had the time to learn how to code...

Let me know if you run across anything like that please!

Adventure games, yes; RPGs, not so much.

I would have suggested waiting for Shadowrun Returns if you want a game that will have campaigns with this kind of gameplay, but the iOS version won't include the editor or ability to play custom campaigns. The PC version will, though, so it might be worth keeping an eye on.

Any recommendation?Can you define what a "population game" is or give examples? Do you mean a town management sim? If so Majesty might be worth considering (avoid the Northern Expansions due to IAP paywall) or some of the Kairosoft titles (i.e. Dungeon Story; they are no lose but fun). Rebuild is a good zombie survival town exploration/reclaim game with team management.

Morning,

Pre-release Testers Required - R.P.G. (Universal iOS App)

we're looking for about 20 knowledgeable, current or lapsed R.P.G. players, to "test and suggest" our upcoming iOS app.

The iOS app includes a well known 1980s R.P.G. game, in its near 100% original form and is scheduled for release in Aug '13.

Players with fond memories and a good knowledge of the genre and era are welcome to tell us about themselves their knowledge of 1980s R.P.Gs. by email to:

paperboy@elite-systems.co.uk

Since the iOS app has not yet been announced, all involved will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement and retain all they learn about the iOS app, in confidence.

Feel free to re-post this message elsewhere and to spread the word about this opportunity.

Regards - Steve Wilcox, Elite

I'm a little tied up to commit to testing. My memory of 1980s RPGs stretches from Infocom, Level 9, Magnetic Scrolls (is that correct? My addled memory is dredging up Anita somebody or other who ran the whole shebang), Twin Kingdom Valley and The Hobbit, amongst others.

Depends if you include text adventures as RPGs. Aside from those maybe Alternate Reality, Ultima series or Wasteland?

Look forward to the unveiling once you're ready for release.

That doesn't sound like a game, more like a money grinder.
I would much rather try my luck in a casino than play a "game" like that...

I don't see the attraction when there's so many great games on both iOS and every other gaming platform designed to be fun to play once I've payed the purchase price.

Well, thankfully Costume Quest was released and brought with it Autumn AND Halloween! Now it's time to start looking for a good RPG to bring with me from now through Christmas. I'll probably play through Saturday Morning RPG episode 4 and Quest Lord again this year, but are there any other RPGs out there that weave either Christmas or Winter into them? Already also have Horn and Ravensword: Shadowlands and will get FFVI when it hits. But I'd love any other suggestions! Thanks

Sigh... been looking for old krpgs I may have overlooked since 2013 has pretty much NONE.

I'm so disappointed. We got a good one like SOL. But other than that I don't recall anything worthy to note. This is one of my favorite genres on iOS and it seems like the luster has faded. I remember when Zenonia used to be all the rage and we'd always wait for it to come out. Then with the new ones they screwed it up with too much online / freemium and now it seems almost every company has given up making them. Maybe because they think it's easier to make money on other types of freemium games. Sigh.

Thanks for all the work, undeadcow! We released a tweaked and free-to-play version of Minimae last week, called RPG Quest - Freemiae. It's really flown under the radar, but hopefully it can be included on your list.
