Slayin is not an RPG at all. It has even less of a story than games like Paladog, and doesn't even really have much in the way of character development. It's just an action/arcade game.

Slayin's fantastic, but as pointed out above, it isnt much of an RPG, but more of an endless combat-heavy arcade game with light RPG elements.

Another game sharing Slayin's endless combat-heavy arcade mechanics with light RPG elements but plays a bit more differently, is Spellsword.

Ark of Sinners has a bit more of an RPG feel than a usual metroidvania type of game, as it gives you more freedom on how you want to develop your character, but it is a metroidvania type of game in its core.

Bravura Quest Rush is another side scrolling RPG i highly recommend, but is currently on a soft release in CA.

There's only a few side-scrolling RPGs that are worth playing on iOS, most of them already mentioned here:

Dungeon Crasher

There's also a couple freemium side-scrolling RPGs i cant remember the names of, but as i remember one of them, you control a party of 3, and you can drag-drop your characters to strategic positions in realtime hack and slashing.

Mauv was the other game I was thinking of. Top down but with a lot of side scrolling levels like Swordigo. Worth trying

After reading all the posts I've realized I have played every damn game available, lol. That's sad. The only one I haven't tried yet is the bravura one, if its free in the CA store ill be able to try it out, I have ios accounts in CA, New Zealand, UK, and Germany, haha. I'm looking forward to rift hunter if they ever release it in US, I played the German version and it was fun except the fact I didn't understand anything. I just went to each level and fought around buying and trying skills I had no idea what they did until i used them lol. Thanks everyone for all the suggestions, it looks like I'm going to have to switch genres for a while lol I've played most metroidvania style games as well and in my opinion the whole touch fps thing just doesn't feel right, I have to have that controller with the thumb sticks and trigger buttons lol.

Thanks for the suggestions! It's just unfortunate that I've had so much time on my hands I've played them already, lol
If you're into brawlers try "OMG Pirates!"
