The Quest

Undercroft, I believe is universal. I like the combat way more-so than in The Quest, but the dungeons, the story, the look sometimes just feels a bit stale. It's free though, so it's hard to complain. Average 5/10 for me.

The Quest, I sort of dislike. It's kind of like the older Elder Scrolls series, but it has the same problems. Boring quests, boring combat almost a nonexistent narrative. An above average 6/10 because there are few RPG's like this on the iOS. A bit odd, when I first got my iPhone I expected there to be a lot more first person dungeon crawlers.

Silversword is definitely on my to-buy list, any other blobbers?

There's Oubliette and the Bards Tale games but if you don't like Undecroft or The Quest I'm not sure why you like those. Possibly Coldfire keep might interest you, as it's a straight dungeon crawl more akin to the recent Legends of Grimrock on PC.

Out of curiosity what blobers do you like? There aren't exactly any with an interesting narrative and most don't have any quests at all.

SilverSword is the best of the lot if you need a Universal dungeon crawler - http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=116287

It hasn't gotten a lot of attention but Eternal Throne is Universal; I've never played it so "just saying..." http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=87380

That's not really what I look for in a Blobber, but that's what both The Quest and Undercroft had so I judged them as such. My main complaint about both of them is the boring combat and easy dungeons/puzzles.

My favorite blobbers, from the ones that I've played is M&M3, Etrian Odyssey, Wizardry 6 and Dungeon Master. Honorable mention to the non-Blobber Ultima Underworld for being awesome.

The Bards Tale port sucks by the way, it's probably better on iPad but on iPhone it's damn near unplayable.
