Yes, the HD version is down to $2.99 from $4.99, so it's on sale too.

Both great games. Pocket RPG may be a stretch to call an RPG, but it's a very fun twin-stick dungeon crawler IMO.

Just nabbed the iPhone version of Pocket RPG and played through the entire first dungeon. Definitely a buck well spent. In terms of a Diablo clone on iOS, I can't say I've come across better than this. DevilDark has been fun, but it just requires far too much grinding. This is much better balanced and suited for mobile play, I feel.

I can agree on that. Pocket RPG, while not a true "RPG", especially since your stats are reset after reach dungeon, is one of my favorite games on the iOS. Definately a must have if you like any kind of hack n' slash Diablo type game. And the twin-stick controls actually work really well.

Its been a while since I played it..but maybe ~5-6 hours per character if you explore. Each "level" is split up into a few dungeons, each took me maybe ~10 minutes? I just play one dungeon each play through. Its a nice, streamlined dual stick "rpg-lite" game with no grinding.

Right on the money with that description. Just about perfect for play on iOS.
