I can't think of any free ones!

Turn based strategy
The war of eustrath
Ravenmark
Spectral Souls
FFT

Turn based rpg
Chaos Rings franchise
final fantasy dimensions
Kemco JRPGs(pretty bland and watered down JRPG games but still trumps most of the wannabe JRPGs in the appstore by quite a bit)
If you are desperate enough you can try Eternal Legacy.

For your question, a good free turn-based RPG right now is Tunnel Trail. Another good one, albeit just-turned-freemium, is Rune Raiders. Not sure if Dungeon Crawlers is still free, but you can check it out. The last 2 are strategy-RPGs though, similar to FFTactics.

As for paid ones, you cant go wrong with the big 4 in roguelikes: 100 Rogues, Fargoal, Cardinal Quest and Legends of Yore. Some good stuff you caninvest on are Final Fantasy titles (FF: Dimensions was recently just released), then there's Battleloot Adventures, Saturday Morning RPG, Cthulhu Saves The World, Crimson Gem Saga, Eternal Legacy and the trio of Chaos Rings titles.

Looks like you made 2 threads... But here's my reply to the other one.

I haven't played that one, but if that's the type of game you're looking for, you might also be interested in checking out Ash, Ash II, Dragon Fantasy, and Guardian Saga, (as well as all the iOS FF games of course), all of which I enjoyed. Maybe check out Adventure Bar Story too, it wasn't really up my alley, but a lot of people like it.

Edit: oh and Cthulu Saves the World, mentioned in a previous post, would also probably be your type of game.

Elvin Chronicles is okay, I enjoyed it. I reccomend Dawn of Magic. The graphics aren't amazing, but it's pretty good. I believe Dawn of Magic is free.

Dragon island blue is like Pokemon, it's super addictive and on sale for a dollar.
