Yes, Ash.

Also, Crimson Gem Saga should be your most likely choice.

While the vioce overs in the animated cutscenes and the style of the cutscenes them selves are not of the best quality, but they are there none the less. My worst complaint about the game was the ending of the game which was slightly abrupt and left some questions.
Elven Chronicles is ok so far but I have not played enough of it to say much about it. But its turn based RPG, 2d sprite based graphics and all that.
Vay's voiceovers suck because they aren't the ORIGINAL voiceovers that were done on the SegaCD version. Loved that game.
The gameplay is the same though.

Just hoping if they're any news or similar games on the Iphone that have the First Person turn based attacks.
For some reason there isn't many RPG on iphone using first person turn based attacks. There are many more using a sort of Zelda approach.

Anyway there's RPG with first Person turn based attacks:
  • Undercroft : The fight system is party first person turn based attacks. But exploring is also first person and it's not a JRPG. It's a quite polished RPG with some good puzzles, good exploration, fairly good class and skill system, and so on. The writing is fair but a bit under the par and overall it' very far from the quality of DQ V and even DQ IV. But it has better puzzles, better fights and as good exploring, in my opinion.
  • Doom II RPG: Not party based like DQ but also using first person turn based fights. But exploration is also first person unlike in DQ. It's just another scale and approach and it's hard to compare with DQ series. It's more a dungeon crawling turn based with many story contents and some nice little tricks or secrets and the resource management is an important key. Also the writing is rather good and quite above most RPG you'll find on idevice, but it can't compare to DQ V not even to best parts of DQ IV.
  • Wolfenstein RPG: An approach rather close to Doom II RPG, I haven't yet played it.
But I'm not sure why you need at any cost first person turn based attack. For example FF 1&2 are rather close to such system anyway.

If it's hope of a port of DQ series, I'm afraid that currently it doesn't seem the idevices are in the target and this is certainly because of the current ratio sell price/number of units sold far to be enough when compared to some other devices.

About Crimson Gem Saga, it's probably the more polished writing for RPG released on idevice, alas it has some big flaws like during exploration mode all monsters look the same and that quickly kill the mood. And there's an awful forced grinding with an abuse of totally repetitive fights as I never seen even in the weakest JRPG I played (but didn't that many).

The DS is a haven for quirky jrpg's made for the super hardcore. The Etrian Odyssey's would satisfy your craving I think (first person, but more dungeon crawling than DQ).

Damn, if Atlus started supporting the iPhone... *drifts off into adolescent wonder* lol

Default Guardian Saga

It's short (5-6 hours) but as close to Dragon Quest as I've played so far. Worth the price for sure.

Ash is amazing, but I love Dragon Fantasy, if you're looking for something as old school as Dragon Warrior. Dragon Fantasy II should be out soon and that will play more like Ash as well.
