Recettear for iPhone... oh I wish!

The Recettear bug just bit me earlier today... I can't put this game down!!

For the unitiated, Recettear is a semi-RPG which is divided into two parts:

1) setting up your own store (buy low, sell high) and deciding item placement, pricing, etc

2) dungeon-crawling to find more loot to sell

There's a weekly deadline where you have to earn X amount of money before that day (to re-pay borrowed money) - that's where the challenge comes in.

I wish someone ported this to the iDevice. Anyone else here hooked to Recettear yet?

Reckless Racer, Modern Combat 2 (add me!)

No i completly agree! This game needs to be ported, it is really fun, funny and deep. Great mix of dungeon crawling and time management!

i'd like to see it too, as long as the combat is toned down a little. as it stands, it's pretty difficult. it would be even harder unless the iphone controls were precise.

The dungeon crawling is a little janky but the combat really isn't THAT bad. You just have to get a feel for the range of enemies.

This game would be fantastic on the iPhone.

Sounds like the game FATE I live for that game! Very good on the PC especially the new version.

Torchlight, which was made by the devs of FATE, has been rumored to be planned for iPad: http://gameinformer.com/b/news/archi...t-on-ipad.aspx
