Default Replacement for Crimson Gem Saga?!?

My favorite RPG on iOS is Crimson Gem Saga. However, it's no longer playable on iOS 5.0+ so I'm looking for something with the same feel graphically, mechanically, and story-wise. Does this compare to CGS's gameplay and story at all? It looks almost as good as CGS, but the story seems weak as well as the action elements. I'm more of a story/turn-based RPGer. But I haven't seen a good graphic replacement for CGS until... Maybe now. But I doubt this will even come close to the awesome writing and voice acting of CGS.

Anyone else play them both and can do a comparison?

Thanks!

The biggest difference is the combat.
This is not a turn-based JRPG; it plays like Across Age, an Action RPG (means no seperate battle screens).

Are there drops for weapons and armor and such? Does your appearance change as you equip different things?

So far no weapon or armor drops as such. You do find Spirit Stones that can be used to upgrade equipment, and you can craft your own weapons and armor from found materials (haven't gotten there yet). Weapons are shown on your character, armor doesn't seem to be. All in all this is more of a story and action driven game than a loot-fest. I'm only a couple hours in, though, and it feels like I've just dipped my toes into the game.

One interesting bit: early on you build a house in the wilderness as a base of operations. Seems that, as time goes by, NPC will be setting up near your house, basically building a town around you -- a bit like Bastion, but happening automatically.

I beat him without experiencing any bugs, though it did take me a few tries -- the bosses in this game are no laughing matter...

Perhaps Kemco-style anti-piracy?

Possibly. He was tough, though, so it's possible that he didn't quite get him.
