Final Fantasy Tactics like game?

I'm about to go on a long trip and have been curious if there are any final fantasy tactics like games in the app store?

I'm not crazy about tower defense games.. they just bore me after a while.

I'm also looking for a good turn-based RPG (aka like final fantasy!). I am about to try Zenonia Lite to see how that is -- but I believe its more Zelda like.

Anyway, appreciate the help!

Zononia!

Dude this is probably the best answer you will get. GET FULL GAME ZENONIA!
I just bought the game yesterday and I CANT STOP PLAYING. Its not turn based, think of it as final fantasy mixed with Zelda. Its an amazing action RPG with different endings, 40-50 hours with of game play, choose between good or evil for different story lines. If your good you fight with the holy knights, and if your bad you kill them! 3 differnt character types, Paladin: Strong and Magical, Warrior: Brute strength, Assassin: SPEED! I picked the assassin. After about 30 hours of gameplay, you can always replay the game with a different character and choose a completely different path! Plus 3 characters 30-50 hours of gameplay each x 3 thats 120+ hours. The game is soo much fun and its funny and it just keep drawing you in with more challenges. Its quest based, do as many sub quests as you can find, and do one main quest at a time to advance the story. Good luck! Good/ evil, what will you choose?

No, he meant Final Fantasy Tactics, a turn-based strategy game. Zenonia is an action RPG.

Anyway, I'd check out Mecho Wars. Upcoming updates will include online multiplayer, another storyline, and more. Right now its a pretty cool game. Also, Rein of Swords (both 1 and 2) and UniWar are pretty fun TBS games. Note that most of these are more like Advance Wars than FFT, but they will probably be great for you.

Sorry for the double post.

As for turn-based RPGs, the only one that comes to mind is Vay. I haven't tried it so can't say whether its good or not.

Thanks for the quick replies!

Zenonia seems pretty fun.

Are there any great RTS games? I've seen some come and go, but nothing really caught my eye before. I haven't really been following iphone games lately.. so I may have missed out on a few.

Inspiration for them would be Warcraft/Starcraft/Command and Conquer series.

Warfare inc is a lot like starcraft, mecho wars is like advance wars, I've played both and they're both pretty good. Also I haven't played it but quantum collapse has been brought up a bunch, and seems to have a generated a following with promises of multiplayer.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Quantum Collapse is good fun and a new skirmish mode brings a lot of replay value. I would NOT recommend Stragea or Rise of Lost Empires. Both of those are no good at all.

Scratch that - I found reviews of them. I'm checking out Quantum Collapse as we speak.

Controls are horrible, AI is crap, your units don't listen... its a disaster.

Wut!?!?!?

The controls of RoLE worked fine for me, and AI was solid, and units followed my orders pretty much exactly. The only problem is that it is kinda short for a RTS, with like around 3 hours of gameplay, but it was a lotta fun
Don't no wat was wrong with u
