If you have an iPad, it goes without saying that you should be taking a look at Spiderweb Software's Avadon and Avernum series for complex non-linear isometric iOS RPGs.

It's quite amazing this hasn't been done yet. VATS was fun to use, allowed for some fantastic action shots, and solves a ton of problems with trying to aim using virtual controls. Whoever does it first has got my money.

Well, if you read what i posted, i merely gave alternatives. OP wasnt looking for the usual FPS aiming, and this is all i could think of.

Oh and also because there is no Doom rpg.
Nice to see you are back to what you have always been. Looks like i found what i was looking for.

Forgot about those. Those are solid suggestions.

What's does that mean

I'll have to agree on the VATS system. It's pure genius and it spices up the combat by 100%. It could work very well with touch-controls too.

Mighty Dungeons has a turn based combat system where you can specifically focus on enemy body parts.

In the spirit of suggesting games that only trivially match the original poster's request; consider Mission Europa for a post-apocalyptic scifi feel.

Doom II RPG is available on iOS and worth considering. Doom RPG is a thing from older cellphones, not on iOS. Also Silversword and Tumulus of Fen and often overlooked turn based first person dungeon crawlers that are about as relevant (but not apocalyptic).

Wolfenstein RPG is no longer on app store.

Xenome, while worthy, seems to be abandoned by developers.

I'll second a general recommendation of Alien Shooter.

There are 2 Alien Shooter games.
Survive - not so good.
And the Beginning - that's the one the guys are recommending. It's a dual stick shooter, action game. Great game mildly reminiscent of the old fallouts. Much less RPG elements though. I'd recommend it, not sure it'll be that relevant to the original request for suggestions though.
