Top side scrolling RPGs

I'm sure there is a thread out there for this somewhere so if there is and someone has the link please post, if not then I'd like some suggestions on games similar to swordigo, you know? Actual story, no IAP (or at least optional iap) and most of all not freemium, paid games only. Any suggestions would be helpful, I know chances are anything that's posted I've already played but I'm hoping for at least 1 or 2 games I haven't tried yet. Thank in advance for your help.

Ninja Gaiga is alright.
Heavy Sword has potential

There is another but I can't remember the name! Ill post it the second I remember.

Can't believe there's not a sequel to Swordigo

Haha I've actually played ninja gaiga, it was alright, as you said. They definitely could have done a lot more for the game, I did have fun with it but at the same time I was very disappointed because, for a long time I had been looking for a legit ninja adventure game that was not an endless runner or a touch only throwing/slicing game, I wish I could find another, just a straight ninja game with story, levels, combo fighting, with or without RPG elements preferably with but, like I said if its not an endless runner or a throwing/slicing game I'd be willing to check it out. Thanks for the suggestions! It's just unfortunate that I've had so much time on my hands I've played them already, lol

Ah wazhack I tried and didn't care for it, dragon slasher was the side scrolling black and white game that had color depending on the type of enemy or armor, right? The game had no real detail because everything was fully colored in. If that's the game then yes I've played it, I loved it too, played nonstop until beaten. Thank you very much for your suggestions and even though I've already played them I still appreciate you taking time out of your day to help me.

Paladog is fun, but it's just an action/arcade game, there is no story.

Why doesn't this have its own thread?

I've heard a lot about slayin, and it got a 5 star review from TA, but I've never actually played it.
