What are the best iOS RPG's released in 2012??

I've been away from the iOS gaming scene since probaly late 2011. I heard about Bastion and Dragon Island on a podcast and playing both reminded me how much fun playing on the iPad can be.

I'm a huge RPG fan. What are some of the best RPG's released on iOS this year? I'd love to start building up my iOS RPG collection again.

Well, it isn't out yet, but Ravensword 2 shall be among us soon. It looks to be the greatest iOS RPG known to man.

Just Chaos Rings 2. Nothing else since its release.
Some said "The World Ends With You" by S/E, but I think that one is just some mediocre, but absolutely overhyped game.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

That's unfortunate. I guess CR2 and Bastion will have to do for now.

I didn't play TWEWY, but Drakerider and Chaos Rings 2 are awesome.

Yes. But only if you're into dialogues which go on and on for hours and your biggest hobby is collecting bottle caps. Also the art style... well, Square / Enix can definately do better.
But as always, tastes differ.


edit: forgot to mention that Order & Chaos from GameLoft is free to play now. They removed the monthly fee. That's one MMORPG worth to sink hundreds of hours into.

Nah, the most ppl were reall happy. And it's free 2 play for everyone now. Including those who already played it for a long time and still play it.

But I forgot @ thread OP: did you check out Cthulhu saves the world and The Bards Tale? Both are enjoyable, but not original iOS releases.

Vovin is wrong about TWEWY, of course (no offense -- I've been wrong about games myself many times). Probably the most original and exciting JRPG to come out in the last 5 years.

Chaos Ring II is also great, as is Bastion. There's also Avernum on the iPad. Final Fantast Dimensions is the best old school RPG I've played in a while. There have also been a number of less traditional titles, including Acheron Prime and both Squids. You can also look at SRPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics and Spectral Souls.
