More games like Undercroft & The Quest?

Hello folks!

Im a sucker for oldschool RPG games like Undercroft and The Quest.<3

My question is; Are there more? I love playing these games on my iPhone
and now I want more! Any suggestions? Please? Pretty please?

Thanks in advance!

You might like Dragon Bane II, and also The Bard's Tale offers the first two old-school versions within the game: I and II.

There's also Silversword (really old-school).

Legend of Grimrock is on it's way
Dungeon of the Damned is less RPG/more adventure
Princess Demelza is another game using the DragonBane II engine
Realmaze 3D is just a maze, but it's fun
Alternate Reality: The City and The Dungeon are available (emulated)
Akalabeth is a great implementation of the PC title
Tumulus of Fen is OK.
Descend RPG is OK.

If you can get past the graphics, DragonBane II is one of the best, and is very much like Bards Tale II (and of course Bards Tale I/II are great, but the host app is HUGEMONGOUS!)

EDIT: There are two other games very like Akalabeth on iOS and I can't find 'em. Bonus points to anyone who can remember...)

No offense, but this probably belongs in the General Game Discussion forum.

Forgot about Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls, though reviews have been less than favorable.

EDIT: Found the two games - and it looks like they've made a few more:

Sorcerer #1, #2, #4 and #5.

Not sure what happened to #3 - I've only played with the first two. Hard to beat the price, but if you find these appealing, I'd highly recommend Akalabeth instead (or in addition to. )

In addition to all these suggestions (all of which I agree with), it is likely you could get Aemula Oldies to run just about any DOS RPG that requires an XT or 286: AD&D gold box, Ultima, Apshai, Might & Magic, etc.

Thank you everyone for the replies!

Seems like I have a lot of old school RPG:s to look forward to
on my iPhone(and iPad). Yay!:-D

Dragonbane II looks very promising and will be the first of
all suggested RPG:s I will play/try.

Again, thanks everyone, and if more games comes to mind
please post m here!

BTW, Legend of Grimrock looks absolutely fantastic, I really hope
that game will make it to iOS.

Wolfenstein RPG and Doom II RPG both play like Undercroft does. They have kind of silly humor though.
