Um, the OP has an iphone 4S, so Baldur's Gate, Spiderweb games, etc. aren't applicable. I don't even know about Bastion - I adore it and it is universal, but does it work well on a small screen?
I really like Bard's Tale, and it is less frantic than Bastion, so it may work on an iphone.

Personally, I was somewhat disappointed in The World Ends with You - I finished it, but I didn't love it. Loved Final Fantasy III, though.

I am currently addicted to Kingturn and the prologue is free, so I'd say try that. But what kind of RPGs do you enjoy, OP?

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen

Think Bastion works very well on a smaller screen, granted its far better on the ipad but i travel a lot so i prefer playing games on my iphone/ipod

I highly recommend Bastion as well. I was originally going to wait to get a new iPad to play it but had read such rave reviews I couldn't resist, buying it on my iPhone instead (it is universal though). Simply put, AMAZING game. Two minutes into the game I knew I was in for something special, and I was right. One of my favorite games ever, I've since bought it on X-Box and it will definitely get another play through when I get my iPad 5 (intimately,with headphones).

Edit: it played wonderfully on an iPhone.

+1 for the Bastion recommendation, but that isnt much of an RPG by definition, but more of an action adventure title.

Monster Adventures
Costume Quest
