The definitive Puzzle RPG for iPhone?

Hey guys, I'm looking for a great Puzzle RPG for my iPhone but I'm sick and tired of the freemium, always online, pay for action points kind of game.

I'd rather pay for a great premium game (that I can also play offline).

Can you please recommend me your definitive Puzzle RPG? Thanks in advance!

There's really no better puzzle RPG than the original Puzzle Quest, but unfortunately it's no longer available on iOS. Puzzle Quest 2 is not as good, but it does deliver a "AAA" puzzle RPG experience -- make sure to pick up the premium version, not the fremium one.

I second squarezero. I am always on the lookout for new ones, and Darkin just came out 2 months ago - I will have to check it out. Over the years though, Puzzle Quest /2 has proven to have a lot of staying power and I have played it and beaten it many times using different characters, equipment, spells, etc. Puzzle Quest 2 is a great experience that I am sure you will enjoy.

I lost a few hours to Dungeon Scroll the other night so that's my recommendation.

I just learned today that Puzzle & Dragons has finally come to the appstore here in europe. Is it worth picking up? Is it as good as i've often heard? What do you guys think? (Sorry for hijacking thread...)

P&D is already available for months in the EU
It's the best Match-3 Puzzler, imo. Sure, there are IAP's and a Rare Egg Machine for which you'll have to buy Premium currency but GungHo is very generous with giving them out for free, plus you'll get hundreds just for completing dungeons. I mostly have 5 to 6 rolls for free every month. Just make sure you re-roll a good starter cuz otherwise things can get quite difficult. Godfest starts tomorrow at 8pm UTC so it's a good time for re-rolling! (Never roll outside Godfests!)
I'm at Level 210 so far and it's the only game which still lasts on my device.

On topic:
Besides PQ, I had a great time with Might & Magic: Clash Of Heroes. It's not Match-3 but still an awesome Puzzle RPG which also received a huge amount of awards for being that good.
No iAP, just a pure premium experience.
