Default Good snes style rpgs?

I loved snes jrpgs back in the day. Like FF, chrono trigger etc. I'm looking for games like those.

New to phone mobile games and there is just so much out there.

Any suggestions?

Second on the Kemco games! Also, check out Square-Enix's lineup - including Final Fantasy Dimensions.

Dragon Fantasy
Final Fantasy 1
Final Fantasy 2
Final Fantasy Dimensions
Pretty much anything by Kemco (I personally feel these games lack coherent dialogue and stories, and are really just milled out for cash.)
Chrono Trigger
Secret of Mana
Adventure Bar Story

...I'm sure I could go on.

You're kidding right? I hold Kemco games very close to my heart. They're in league with old-school FF titles, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, ect...



They've got some of the best translation found in the AppStore, wonderful, well thought-out and written (albeit sometimes cliche) stories, some of the deepest mechanics (Dark Gate is phenomenal!) found in the AppStore.... I can go on and on.

Really, reading that makes me think you quickly tapped through dialogue without reading it, couldn't figure out what was going on, didn't take the time to figure out the equip/spell/job system, and rage deleted because of constant deaths/lack of will to take the time to figure anything out.

Forgot about Dragon Fantasy, even though I own it! HA! Also... more NES than SNES, but I really like Guardian Saga.

Also also, and this is a Genesis rpg, but Phantasy Star 2.

Yeah I'll take a look at the Kemco games. FF series I've basicly played all of them. Looking for games I have not played.

I was just curious if any games have came out that I never heard of from new companies.

I'm currently playing FF Dimensions it's alright not bad but not great so far. Thing that really gets me about it is looks like it cost a fortune to buy into the whole game so I'll be waiting for a sale before I finish off that game.

The only Square game I'm thinking about picking up is Chrono Trigger cause I heard it has a new dungeon or something? Not sure if that's correct last time i played it was on super nintendo a million and 1 times lol.

UPDATE: I see they have Lunar Silver Star Story on the store. Probably my favorite rpg of all time, I remember preordering it at the game store rental store when i was a kid for sega cd lol. One of the few I'll rebuy next to chrono trigger. Man can't wait to play that hopefully they release lunar 2 also.

You should also check out Lunar Silver Star Story if you haven't played it previously in another platform....

And if you're even remotely interested in Action RPGs, CrimsonHeart, Osiris Legends, Squids (1&2) and Bastion are must haves.


As far as Kemco goes... If you're looking for deeper gameplay, you might want to check out Dark Gate or Fantasy Chronicle first. They're both on sale right now for $0.99 each. If you're more interested in pretty straight forward gameplay... Grinsia, Eve of the Genesis and Alphadia are great. Nice stories, and pretty straightforward, but still have enough depth in the equip/skill department to keep them interesting. Grinsia and Alphadia 2 are both on sale right now too. I should also say that the original Alphadia is kind of grindy, but if you're willing to put the time into it, its a wonderful game. Right now I'm playing through it a second time. Symphony of Eternity is kind of in between the straightforward and depthy mechanics... If I'm remembering correctly. And it's also on sale ATM as well. Actually, the only Kemco games that aren't on sale right now are the original Alphadia and Eve of the Genesis.

Anywho... Good luck!
