Default Need help finding the right RPG

I was hoping you guys can help me find just the right RPG for the IPhone based on the following stipulations:

- NOT an Action RPG
- Graphics are not a big concern.
- Party based. I would like to control multiple characters at one time
- A good quality combat/leveling/class system

I know that the Final Fantasy series meets these criteria. However, I have already played them, and would rather spend my $$$ on something new. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Rob

The Kemco JRPGs. There are tons of them, typically around the 99 price point when on sale.

Or get at Avernum or Avadon if you prefer a turn based Oblivion type of WRPG.

Avernum and Avadon are ipad only.
Adventure bar story was a real treat,for me at least. Chaos Rings series,although the party only contains 2 persons,you get to fight with different pairs. You might find the class system lacking in those,but they are awesome games. But really,check the thread for Adventure bar story.
Good luck!

Edit:
Undecroft
Knights of pen & paper

I forgot. Even on the iPad, the text for both Avernum and Avaddon were tiny. I won't recommend trying it on a Mini either. But great RPGs though.

If Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions for iOS is not among the FF games you've run through, and you can stand a bit of TBS in your RPG (most RPGs have tactical combat engines, but this one is a bit more tactical, and the rest of the RPG is just a tad less RPG-y. Still has free roaming, character development, and more dialogue and story than almost any other RPG), then I'd say it fulfills all your other wishes splendidly.

The character development system, in particular, can be a dream for fans of character customization and progression. You can basically mix and match abilities from 22 different jobs, and equip a character with auxiliary abilities from any job that character has unlocked. Makes some for very complex and varied character builds. And the abilities are very varied, and goes beyond the basic attacks, buffs, debuffs and heals, as they affect stuff like movement, what happens when your character is struck, etc.

Also, FFT features one of the most well-developer settings I've come across outside of long series of games, and splendid writing and story (of which it has LOTS). Less in terms of choice in dialogue, though, and in spite of a world which can be freely roamed, the main plot and general story progression are very linear.

For more traditional RPGs (and I use the world traditional very loosely for this one), Knights of Pen and Paper seemed to be quite popular a while back. I never took a liking to it, but you might wanna check it out. It has the party, no action in sight, and graphics which are not a big concern to anyone The levelling/class system is where it might fall short for you, though.
