Offline portrait RPG for iOS

Hey everyone, I posted this on Reddit earlier and thought Iíd get your input.

ďIím a New York gamer in need of a commute game. Having to hold onto a rail constantly going in and out of service makes it really hard to play games on the iPhone X.
Any suggestions for a good RPG that can be played one handed offline?ď

So far Dragon Quest suggestions have seemed the most appealing, but Iím lost on which one to get. Wish I hadnít missed the sale

also hero emblems was suggested, but I donít love match 3 games.

More suggestions or recommended DQ game?

Yes, Dragon Quest would have been my suggestion. The most modern one is Dragon Quest VIII, which is truly excellent. It's so good, they just rereleased it on the 3DS only last year.

That said, you can't go wrong with any of them. If you are happy with 8-bit or 16-RPGs, you could happily go with III, IV, V or VI.

Lunar Silver Star Story Touch can be played in portrait or landscape. Very good story driven JRPG.
