Top 3 RPG games for iPhone

There are a ton of RPG games out there that are available for the iPhone and tablet devices. However, a lot of them aren't worth purchasing, and if they're free, some of them aren't even worth the time it takes to download.

That being said, I'm going to put a list together of what I consider to be the top 3 best RPG games for the iPhone. Some of the games on this list may seem to be a bit off, but I promise you that these games are worth the download.

Please feel free to respond to this topic and list what games you would include on your top 3 list.

Dragon Slayers - Epic RPG


This game just went FREE on the app store as part of a black friday promotion the company is running. Therefore, I HIGHLY suggest you download this game immediately, before it jumps back up in price. You will certainly kick yourself if you miss out on this game.

Infinity Blade II


If you want an RPG game that offers beautiful graphics, you'll fall in love with this game. In my opinion, this game has top of the line graphics. This is just one of those games that you love to just gaze at while you're playing it. The graphics will blow you away.

Chaos Rings II


Chances are, you'll look at the price tag associated with this game and there's no way you'll even consider purchasing it, but you'll definitely be missing out. This game has wonderful graphics and they're right up there with Infinity Blade II. However, Chaos Rings has an awesome story and characters to go along with the absolutely amazing graphics. If you're serious when it comes to playing RPG games, you don't want to miss out on this one.

I personally don't consider IB2 to be a rpg... though Dragon Slayers looks interesting, thanks for the tip!

3/ Fall of Angels

Honourable mentions : Aralon. Wazhack. The Quest Gold. Gurk III. Final Fantasy Dimensions. Cavern. Oceanhorn. (I'm counting SRPG and Roguelike so I don't see why the best Action Adventure shouldn't make the cut !)

Hard to narrow it to three. Thought instead of listing my own top three, I'd throw out a few that are near the top that haven't been mentioned yet (and many of those already mentioned may be in my top three).

So struggling to narrow it down, here's a few favorites not yet mentioned:

Fantasy Chronicle - Yes, I know many think Kemco's RPGs are bland, but this one was top notch, polished and I think think easily their best of all of their releases to date.

Ash - the second one kind of blew and never has been finished but the first one had some of the best writing of any RPG on iOS

Doom & Destiny - a fun and often funny semi-parody that's a great RPG in it's own right.

Stone of Life - probably the best KRPG on iOS

Also, it's a port, but would put The Bard's Tale up there. And of the one's mentioned, I'd put the Chaos Rings series, The World Ends with You and Oceanhorn. Sorry, know this isn't exactly what you asked for.
