Somewhat long captivating games?

I am looking for some not too long games like
Walking dead
Plants vs zombies
Sword and sorcery
Really just any fun games that you can actually beat within 5 hours

Anomaly Korea
Anomaly Warzone Earth
Dead Space
Mass Effect Infiltrator
EPOCH.
Shadowgun
Tales of Monkey Island (took me more or less an hour each episode without walkthroughs)
Tiny Bang Story (less than 5 hours to complete, but pretty enjoyable hdo/puzzle hybrid)
Zombies
Clear Vision
Clear Vision 2 (these 2 are kinda short, but they are very enjoyable and i think youll have a good time playing them)
Wild Blood
Wraithborne
Waking Mars

...Difficult to determine gametime as most games dont display total gametime. Also, players have better inclination to certain game types which will also vary between you and me, which could change gametimes between games for us.

"Beat within 5 hours" is already a little difficult to make a list of, and "do you know of anything else that might be a little bit longer" seems more difficult... Longer than 5 hours you mean? I can only think of a few non-endless premiums.

Ravensword: Shadowlands
Chaos Rings
Chaos Rings Omega
Chaos Rings 2
Drakerider
FF3
FF4
FFD
FFT
Heroes & Castles
Horn
Lili (havent finished this one yet, but ive spent about 3 to 4 hours on it already)
Galaxy on Fire 2
Brandnew Boy
Bike Baron
Asphalt 7
Repulze
Bard's Tale
Crimsonheart
EpicHearts
Heroes Call
Swordigo
Time of Heroes
Battleheart
Sefirah
Fantasy Adventure
774 Deaths
7th Guest
Infectonator
The World Ends With You
Cytus
Demons Score
Tone Sphere

here are some of my favorite runners that have story/finite modes. Usually takes a while longer depending on how much you want to "complete" them, like getting 3 stars on all missions, etc.

TheEndApp (completing the mission mode / days of surviving takes a long while to complete)
Rayman Jungle Run
Totem Runner
Capt Antarctica
Jaws Revenge
Blood Roofs (multiple playthrough with continuing story lines)
Infinity Run 3D
Last Knight
Polara
Mirror's Edge
God of Blades


For Zombies, search for the dev name "bignic"

Try some Gameloft games like Wild Blood, Nova 3,
Modern Combat 4, Asphalt 7, Gangster Rio, 9mm, the list is endless. Most are midrange completion games that are console like and fun.

The Room.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Zombies. - search for the dev instead: bignic. One of the best non-endless dual stick shooter on the appstore with great retro visuals, well thought out presentation, funny dialogues, totally destructible environments, and to top it off, probably the best soundtrack on an iOS game.

Just... Get it. You wont be disappointed. One of the easiest 5-star ratings ive ever given.
