Turn based RPGs?

What turn based RPG's are there for the iPhone?

Back in the days of 1.1.4 i played pokemon on the gameboy emulator and that was an ideal game for the iPhone.

Well, Rogue Touch is turn based... The people who made Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (Chunsoft, also makers of Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer) were inspired by the classic Rogue, and we in turn took the classic game and sprinkled some ideas from their games back into Rogue Touch

Some people could argue it's not a full blown RPG, but there's enough magic, monsters, and strategy to keep you going for a *long* time.

Rather than taking my word for it, perhaps someone here who plays it would like to chime in

Yeah, Rogue Touch is the one that immediately sprung to mind. Not what you'd call plot-heavy though, if that's important to you.

I like Rogue Touch and The Quest for turn-based RPG-like games. Both are very well designed and entertaining. Some people have also mentioned that Puzzle Quest can be considered somewhat a turn-based RPG.

You should definitely check out 'The Quest.' Think 'Elder Scrolls.'

Yeah, Rogue Touch, Puzzle Quest and The Quest are awesome games. Arvale is also turned based but I haven't had much time to play that particular game; others seem to be quite fond of it though.

Isn't Vay a traditional turn-based RPG too?

And if you are looking into turn-based strategy RPG games, check out Reign of Swords.

Upcoming turn-based strategy games are Mecho Wars (sci-fi/fantasy themed), UniWars (sci-fi), and Agile Forces (looks like an Advanced Wars clone).
