Best RPG?

Aside from Zenonia, what are some decent RPGs on the iPhone, preferably ones reminiscent of the 16 bit RPGs on the SNES/Genesis?

PuzzleQuest, but honestly, NOT ONE game has come close to competing with Zenonia. Not ONE.

Dragonbane II may not be what you're thinking of, but is similar to Eye of the Beholder on the SNES.

The Quest is similar (and has more updated graphics, and an expansion, and a lite version) but is more expensive.

It's just I've heard Zenononia has a lot of problems atm, and it didn't really grab me when I tried it on a friends iPod. So I've decided to wait until it's fixed before I invest myself in it.

Lol, "Zenononia".

What kind of problems did you hear about? Because as far as I know it works pretty good.
Plus there's a lite version available now.

Zenonia is the only good RPG available for the iPhone right now.
Maybe try Vay if you like classics with low quality graphics.
Aside from those two there really aren't any good ones.

Zenonia, is the only RPG I've enjoyed playing on the iPhone so far, and I'm pretty sure I've tried all the popular ones...

I'm just waiting for the next good one... a cool turn based one with a good story and western stylings... i.e. I'm not playing as a 13year old boy with blue hair and a giant sword!! If they made a D&D universe (forgotten realms pref.) game with the core gameplay of something like final fantasy, I'd be hooked!
