Any games iOS games similar to Vandal Hearts?

You mean, besides Final Fantasy Tactics? There's also a decent port of Shining Force, as well as Rebirth of Fortune, which has similar gameplay but it's not story-driven.

There are other story-driven, non-fantasy based isometric tactical titles, such as:
Tactical Soldier: Undead Rising
Wasted Lands
War of Eustrath

Not played vandal hearts, but by the sounds of it, its a turn based SRPG. Am I right?

The big name one you should try is Final Fantasy Tactics:War Of The Lions

Theres a load of smaller SRPGS and I dont know anywhere near enough of them. Some that I have played are Dungeon crawlers, Hunters episode 1, Tactical Soldier, Undead Rising, Ravenmark, Time of heroes, and to an extent hero academy

I'm sure some others will chime in with a load more

Recommends: Darkness Rush|Terra Noctis|IB2|Epoch|MC3|Shadowgun|Phoenix HD|Sonic Racing|FT Soccer|Bug Heroes|Spider-man

For SRPG, here's a list of all iOS ones.

In additon to those already listed, check out Knighturn or Sword & Earrings.

FFT is expensive yes, but not when you consider what you are getting. Its a massive and fantastic game (on ipad at least).

Had that in mind, too.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
