While there are quite a few I'd recommend Vay.

The reason being that it's a full game (it was on Sega cd) and has been put for quite a while so it won't need an update anytime soon. That way you won't have to deal with a buggy game and finding wifi in order to download a patch, IF there is a patch available when you are able to get a signal

The only one I've tried so far is Underworlds, it's a hack and slash ala Diablo (which is not a bad thing). If you can wait there's a game called Zenonia coming out sometime soon that looks pretty sweet, IGN Zenonia preview

The Quest (full version, lite version) is quite engaging and deep. $6 might seem steep, so I posted the lite version so you can test drive it. I could talk about this game for pages, so I'll just say it's a pseudo-3D, nonlinear rpg. Definitely worth checking out, if only the lite version.

If you're looking for something a little more pick-up-and-play there's Rogue Touch which is an homage to all the Rogue games, and the roguelikes. There's also a free Rogue game, but it's not the same game (but will give you an idea of what to expect at the very least).

Also there's PuzzleQuest (full, lite) which is really less of an RPG and more of a match-3 game, but it has rpg elements (leveling up, stat distribution, magic spells, and even a story!). And that game too has a price that might seem steep, so again, I added the lite version so you can at least give it a try.

That's about all I can really think of worth mentioning. Someone already mentioned Underworlds which is a pretty good action/rpg game. And waiting for zenonia, if waiting is an option, may be a good idea, too.

I'm quite keen to see this game. Ever since a few teaser screen images were posted by the dev.

However, Legion of Amon is not out yet. So although it looks interesting, my vote is for a game that is out now. The Quest is awesome. Try the lite version if you are not sure.

Second the Quest if you like WRPGs. Second Puzzle Quest. Both have Lites, so you can make sure whether you'd like them before purchasing.

Zenonia... well folks promise that it will be the best thing since sliced bread and it certainly looks pretty enough. But from what I have seen in the trailers, I have my doubts about the gameplay. Time will tell...

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

Rouge Touch or The Quest. Vay lacks any polish.

I assume if you have posted this now then you don't want to wait around for Zenonia. I would suggest Vay, its proberly the highest rated RPG on the app store. And how that guy above can recommend Rouge Touch and say that Vay lacks polish is crazy, Rouge Touch is proberly one of the worst games I have ever played. Vay is an old school classic, think of the old Final Fantasys and thats what Vay will remind you of. Puzzle Quest is something else thats quite good, its not an RPG but it has RPG traits like being able to level up and do spells, that worth checking out. It has over 40 hours of gameplay and they will be adding the third chapter on so that will add another 20 hours more then likely, not many games on the Appstore offer that kinda value. And as for The Quest, I couldn't really get into it myself, as everybody else is saying theres a Lite Version so you could check that out. But personally, I think Vay is the best at the moment. You should look around the internet and get reviews on it.
