Which game should I get for an RPG turn based battle system?

Hi all,

I am wanting a turn based RPG (rogue like, dungeon crawler, JRPG I dont care what type) game for my iPhone.
I know the new FFVI is coming out, should I just wait for that or are there any other must play games that I should get?
I haven't played any so think of all the classics as well

There's no reason to wait for Final Fantasy VI (as awe inspiring a gem as FF6 is), there are many quality turn based RPGs on iOS; I consider the following to be must owns for RPG fans:

Fall of Angels
Kingturn Underworld
Final Fantasy Dimensions
Lunar Silver Star Story
The Quest
Dragon Fantasy

Also QuestLord, Nameless: The Hackers, Legends of Yore, and Guardian Saga are all excellent turn based games somewhat abbreviated by RPG standards. Dungeon Plunder is a fun slightly unusual roguelike.
