Default Best iOS RPG's released in the past year?

So I haven't touched iOS gaming for about the last year. Lately I've been itching for an RPG or two to have on my device for those times where I want to play a game on the go and I just have my iPhone with me.

So i ask you, what are some of the best/must have RPG's that have released over the past year that I should look at? I have an iPhone 4S in case specs are an issue.

Here's my list:
Bastion
Ravensword 2
Final fantasy 3,4,5 ( wouldn't recommend 5)
Horn ( best looking game everrr)
The bard's tale ( lots of humor and fun)
Infinity blade series
Knights of Pen& Paper
Wild blood( boring plot but great gameplay)
Chaos rings series( best JRPG)

Most anticipated upcoming IOS games:
Oceanhorn ( zelda-like)
Exile: Far Colony( from the dev of Ravensword and Aralon)
Micromon ( pokemon!)
Infinity blade: Dungeon

and more.....

Consider also...

Kingturn (SRPG)
Dungeon Plunder (roguelike, slot based individual combat)
QuestLord (first person turn based dungeon crawler)
Partia: The Broken Lineage (SRPG)
Nameless: The Hackers (sort of jrpg)
Dark Quest (board game / roguelike)
Dungelot ("casual" roguelike)
Star Trader RPG (space sim)
bitDungeon (action roguelike)
TowelFight 2: The Monocile of Destiny (silly action roguelike)

I'll be curious to see what you decide on and how you find it. Zzandreazz's recommendations are good too.

There are a lot of really great games listed, I can't say that these are necessarily the best, but ones I enjoyed/am enjoying:

Battleheart (cartoonish, real-time strategy.. kind of? hard to explain, but awesome)
Mighty Dungeons (promising new release, still a little rough but there's already an update being pushed)
Battleloot (silly SRPG)
Orc: Vengeance (dungeon crawler, you play an orc)
Heroes Call (another dungeon crawler, freemium done right)

I haven't played Horn, Lili, Pixel Defenders Puzzle but have heard good things about all three. I hope you find something you enjoy, lots of treasures mentioned here.

ETA: Looking back, I think some of these may have been released more than a year ago - still worth checking out, though.

Are you on drugs? O_o

It's $16 to unlock all chapters in Drakerider, and $6 for the Deluxe version of SMRPG which gives you all current and future chapters of the game.

Go get all the games from Spiderweb Software:
Avadon, and the Avernums. Average on graphics, but fantastic gameplay and story.

I second the Chaos Rings games, Baldur's Gate, Bastion, Ravensword 2, and especially Kingturn.
You might like Blazing Souls:Accelate, but that game is a tough cookie, insanely long, and not much fun without a walkthrough.
The Infinity Blades are more like action games, not RPGs.
Drakerider was so-so: nice, but nothing special.
Horn was rather nice, especially the environments have some real jawdroppers.

If you want a "slightly different" experience go check out Crow (not a real RPG, but very interesting setting and story), and King of Dragon Pass (the 5star luxury package, complete with whirlpool, music, and butler): extremely text-heavy, but an awe-inspiring experience, and tells one of the best stories I ever saw.
