Just posted in that similar thread... And here's that post. Run n Gun is the only freemium in that list as TheEndApp is a one time iap to unlock all modes and upgradeables. It also isnt as grindy as the freemium runners as this game has tons of it.

Then there are the well accepted RPGs, with so many subgenres each with their own character progression system. From the menu bassed, turn based combat of kemco's gems, to Crescent Moon's innovative games, to SE's Chaos Rings titles, to the well-proven Final Fantasy titles, the upgrade systems are all too present, and pretty much a big part in playing the games.

Tons more to mention as upgrade systems are everywhere, but here are some games that get my highest recommendations.

Chaos Rings 2
Blood Roofs
Run 'n' Gun
Heroes & Castles
Ravensword 2
Mass Effect Infiltrator
