I'd personally choose NBA Jam, but they are both great games.

Actually both of those things are like Mage Gauntlet, but any other RPGs that are similar?

All suggestions welcome - nothing is too obvious.

Edit: Aurum Blade and Crimsonheart I've bought, so don't mention those please.
Just curious for more suggestions - I got one pretty good one but with all the RPG buffs around on the website I don't think one suggestion is good enough!

The only one that I can recommend from that list is Rolando 2. Fantastic platformer even if it's a little dated.

I'll probably get Blueprint 3D later and I'll reply with whether or not it has my stamp of approval.

Btw, the start of a new thread seems purtty insane, I haven't been here all that long but I can just imagine the history in the old one.
You forgot Dark Meadow. That game is really awesome.
I would say IB 2 too, but it has a lot of bugs. I won't be talking about the framerate in A4... buff...

I haven't been on in a couple of days because of Christmas, but I found a pretty awesome new app last night. Well, I guess it wasn't that hard to find since it's in the top 25, but I rarely ever check the AppStore since being on TA.

Anyways, it's called Animoog and it's a pretty awesome synthesizer app. Apparently, it's created by Moog who is a pretty big/top company in the synth world. It's sorta taken me away from playing all the games I got because it's just so cool to make the crazy and unique sounds and then overdub them.

I'm not really a musician but I have a fascination with music (especially synth and dubstep). The app is pretty overwhelming especially for a newbie (which i pretty much am). I'd make 1 wrong change and my song was completely messed up with no understanding how to fix it.

The only problem with it is the that you can only make 20 second samples. It's kind of annoying since, like i said, I'm not a musician and don't have production software to export to. So, I'm currently looking into some free software or something. Hopefully they update the sampling time or at least offer an IAP for more production type stuff.

Oh yeah, it has an Anisotropic Synth Engine which shows you the waves and orbitals from the sounds you make. It's interactive and awesome. This is probably the coolest part in the app for me.
