Default Turn-Based JRPGs?

I've really loved Spectral Souls. It's a great combination of the best parts of RPGS for me; there's a (albeit linear) job system, upgrade paths (for weapons), chained powers, etc. There's also a non-linear story system which creates a really interesting experience. However, it lacks non-battle gameplay and can be a bit heavy on the dialog.

Yesterday I purchased the first chapter of Final Fantasy Dimensions but the real-time battle system crossed with the colossal amount of battles (read: every 10 seconds) has rendered it rather dull for me.

The other Final Fantasy's were fun… Chaos Rings was good too… I want to try Drakerider but I can't play it with an iPad 1 due to the lack of gyroscope. I'm quite into simulations (I buy every Kairosoft game without reading the review) but I had an issue with Adventure Bar Story saving and haven't got back to it.

Really appreciate any recommendations?

Cthulhu Saves the World
Dragon Fantasy
Guardian Saga
Monster RPG 2
Crimson Gem Saga
Eternal Legacy
Tunnel Tail <--- This one is FREE, with no IAPs or any catch at all
The World Ends With You <-- definitely a JRPG, but a realtime one at that. Has the biggest amount of game content and mechanics in the whole iOS universe.

Know there's varying opinions on the Kemco RPG games - seems like you either like 'em or you don't. But I personally have enjoyed them.

If I were to recommend one of the bunch, I'd say Fantasy Chronicles is the best and most polished.

Default JRPG's

The Kemco RPG's are good, I really enjoyed them too. Too bad Fantasy Chronicles is pulled. I don't have Fantasy Chronicles, so I hope it's going to get back in the App Store soon.

Ah, yes, I forgot that it was pulled. Apparently, there was some critical bug in it, but I never hit it. Hope it does get put back on the store as it really is a great game.
