Top 3 RPG games for iPhone

2. Cavern - More of a rogue-like but with loot system of Diablo and some fixed content mixed with randomly generated areas. An IOS gem that has been generously updated since release and should not be missed.

3. Pocket RPG - Another IOS original that's likely to be more action-RPG than RPG-Action but nonetheless is very entertaining. Randomly generated levels and an interesting level-up/unlock concept keep me coming back for more.

Honourable mentions: Avadon The black fortress (a port, but an amazing turn-based RPG that brings back memories of Fallout 1 and Fallout 2). Dungeonism - plays sort of like a rogue-like but no permadeath, however it oozes style and originality (buy it now, basically)
To see such taste... ah.

I'd definitely throw The Quest and Undercroft on my list, then probably fill it out with Avernum; beyond that series, a few blobers and rouge-likes there isn't much I care for.

*wait... Baldur's Gate. Top of my list. I just keep forgetting that these got an iOS release.

Baldurs gate - ill lump them together


Probably Undercroft.

If no ports of old pc games, then add The Quest and chaos rings 2.
