Direct me to some RPGs/Story-Base

Hey guys! Since the app store is a terrible place to look for 'decent' games, I'm going to trust you guys instead. So here's the deal: I'm looking for a iOS game along the lines of a '60-hour RPG' (don't take it literally...). Yes, I'm one of those guys. I already own FF:Tactics and Chaos Ring and looking forward to the release of Adventure Bar Story. Any suggestions is appreciated!

Oh, and I also enjoy story/mystery driven games. Just finished Ghost Trick, that game was worth its price. So any suggestion for this genre is also appreciated!

-Thanks in advance.

Fall of Angels
Dragon Fantasy
Sword & Earrings (plot driven turn based strategy)
Secret of Chateau De Moreau (not RPG)

Crimsonheart is definitely awesome.

Check out The Bard's Tale too. It's a straight port of a PS2 game, so it really is a many-hour RPG.

Other options:

Chrono Trigger
Fantasy Chronicle (or any of the other Kemco JRPGs)
Osiris (3D JRPG in the spirit of the Tales series. Unfortunately it has a save bug that I've been able to circumvent, but at least one TAer hasn't)
Across Age
Crimson Gem Saga (great JRPG, but the controls take some getting used to)

A few other RPG-like, story driven games:
Tactical Soldier: Undead Rising
War of Eustrath
Ravenmark (not really an RPG, but plays similarly to Fire Emblem)
Time of Heroes
Dungeon Crawlers
Ash II

Wild Frontier -- one of the best KRPGs on the appstore right now. Has a pretty neat crafting and pet system, and it's FREE at the moment.

Monkey Island series is really great if you are into adventure/story.

If you're looking for some turn-based RPGs, the Kemco games are really good, especially their latest, Fantasy Chronicle.
