Thanks for all the help folks! I'll definitely look into those!
I have Wolfenstein, and I would consider it more like an early FPS as opposed to a dungeon crawler. Still a great game though. The main thing I like better about The Quest over Wolfenstein is the turn-based action.
Tumulus of Fen looks promising.
I wasn't really impressed by Silversword, but it might grow on me if I play it a bit more.
I actually own The Bard's Tale and love the new 3d top-down version, but the original games are hard to control on an iPod's small screen.
Is DOOM II turn based, or rail shooter, or more like Wolfenstein? I'll probably end up buying it anyway, but I want to know what to expect
I looked up Eternal Throne and it had some bad reviews... Makes me a little leery of it, but I might try it if it goes on sale.
Akalabeth is a little TOO old school for my taste :P
Alternative Reality and Dragon Bane are not on the app store

Thanks again for all the help you guys! Any other suggestions, I never have enough video games

Oubliette. It is like Wizardy, but the battle system is like Final Fantasy's ATB. Alos, it's free to download, and then you can purchase the rest of the game after playing a few levels.

I really haven't played that much of it, but from the little time I have spent with it I'd say it's at least worth a try

Legend of grimrock is supposed to be coming. Im still waiting for that.

I play Socerer #5 but that might be too old school for some people. Its pretty rough but plays like a true dungeon crawler.

Nothing like The Quest though. Thats almost like a 2D elder scrolls game.

Doom II RPG is turn based, just like The Quest.

(Wolfenstein has an RPG turn-based version too.)

True. I'd rather not have Windows... but the growing list of gog.com titles vs. the paltry Mac selection might sway me...

If you have it in dual boot it shouldnt mess up your Mac stuff at all. I use an external drive with windows vista on it so theres no overlap. Older games run fine Im Playing Shadow of Destiny PC version right now which I bought off of amazon for $5

And you forgot Tumulus of Fen.

Also, the OP asked for games that scroll smoothly like The Quest.

Best alternatives on iOS are probably Wolf 3D RPG and Doom II RPG as they have 3D engines. (Too bad iD didn't port Orcs & Elves, that was a great game on the DS using the same engine.)
I found Tumulus of Fen for free a couple weeks ago, which was AWESOME! (I love free stuff lol) I do enjoy Tumulus of Fen, but it's not as story-driven as the Quest. I've gone through a couple of expansions for The Quest since this post, so for now I'm content lol

I bought DOOM and I absolutely LOVE it! It's a great RPG but it's more smooth and not turn-based like the Quest. Is Doom II RPG as good as the first?

As always, huge thanks to all you folks for all your suggestions!

Note that Doom: RPG is a turn-based RPG based on Doom, which is pretty much an action game. They share lots of elements, but play very differently.
