Honestly I don't know. I own about 6 of these Kemco RPG's now but haven't played one of them. I have done my research though and they are all pretty well loved turn based rpgs so I know I will enjoy em. So the goal I'd expect would be getting strong enough to face certain enemies... exploring the world... and so on. I don't think any of these are action RPG's.

The Kemco games are japanese style role playing games involving turn based combat. I wouldn't compare them to Zelda (because Zelda is much more an action game because combat is fluid). JRPGs involve a bit of puzzle solving in terms of world exploration to solve environmental puzzles (access a new area) or progress the plot. I recommend downloading at least one of them at the price to play around with and see if you enjoy the JRPG style. If you're interested in top down action role playing games then Korean RPGs (KRPG) is more that style (and consider Master of Dungeon or Dragon Knight IV, both free). You can check the iOS RPG list in my signature if you're looking for more action oriented RPG games.

I am curious too, having probably never played any of them.

Are they easy to play?

I haven’t played these a lot because like nightc1 they’re in my backlog but I understand each has unique elements summarized below so it's a matter of your preference:

Grinsia – focuses on attaining “treasure” that can be equip to alter your characters skills. Each character reacts to plot points differently so the plot is “customizable” by being tailored somewhat to your party composition.

Fantasy Chronicles – has a monster collection component emphasizing companions/guardians including training them.

Symphony of Eternity – more of a general world exploration RPG.

DarkGate – detailed stat customization and leveling up with job system and multiple endings.

I think they are accessible for novices but JRPGs typically require a good investment of time to build up characters and for the plot to develop. The iOS controls are straightforward and intuitive. DarkGate has more complicated character development so unless that appeals to you it might not be the best starting place, consider Symphony of Eternity.

This is going off of what I read before buying these games... I think for a noob to these kinds of games, DarkGate is the last one you want. It's the most confusing as far as the job system as only certain job classes will let you beat certain bosses and I think it could be a little too frustrating not expecting to put so much attention on the job system. Here's a link to the thread for Dark Gate on the main games forum here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...ight=dark+gate

Read what undeadcow posted though. If it were me and I were buying one, I'd go with Symphony of Eternity because I like more world exploration and traditional Japanese RPG's of yesteryear. But someone else may lean towards monster collecting/training or treasure hunting in the other two games. I don't think you can go wrong with any of those three.

Is DarkGate in English? Some of the screenshots have English, but some have Japanese, and the listing on the side in the App Store says 'Japanese' only.
