Default Any Side-Scrolling RPGs?

Hi

I've recently been playing Zombieville USA 2 and Dinocap and I wondered if there were any games for the iPad with the same side-scrolling style based more around levels with rpg mechanics? Maybe even character customization? Zombieville 2 is far too much of a grind for my liking, Dinocap I really like but it has no end or story and I do like my games to end sometimes (just not too quickly!)

I have tried Fangz and while I like the style I don't like to be rushed towards the end of a level with a timer.

Thank you.

Mighty Wardens (my personal recommend) and maybe Call of Mini: Brawlers is what you may be looking for, the first moreso than the latter. For a more KRPG direction with heavier RPG elements in it (these gams you mention and the ones above are more Hack & Slash, which while there are numbers and leveling, I feel don't really fall into true RPG status), try Illusia 2 (its free, Gamevil) though the controls are a bit clunky, the mindless hack and slashing is somewhat satisfying and there is tons of loot to be had and stats to fiddle and an actual perfunctory story with quests as elementary as they may be!


There are more I am sure I am missing, but I can't think of them right off!

Swordigo is brilliant if you haven't tried it yet.

I've had swordigo for quite a while but haven't played it recently, might be worth a reinstall. I'll give Illusia 2 a try and I was looking at Inkvaders though I know that's not the RPG I was asking for. I quite like the look of Mighty Wardens as well so I think I'll give that a go too, thank you

I've tried the Call of Mini: Brawlers and didn't like that very much, though I can't say why.

Is Illusia 2 reliant on IAP to complete?

Well, its a Gamevil game... There's a reason why I mentioned it in the previous post, hehe!

Honestly though, it can be done without and I didn't find it too bad though it will require some grinding, though I felt the grinding didn't feel bad, and I am one that usually hates excessive grinding! I didn't find the grinding that bad and I never felt I hit a paywall with it like i do with most of their games!

Good call on Swordigo, that was one I forgot! And I agree with you on CoM:B, I like it but it is not a must play for me either. I do recommend Mighty Wardens though!

Side-but-not-scrolling, high score type of RPG i'll recommend: Slayin.

Other than that, yeah, Swordigo is tops.

All Gamevil side-scrolling RPGs are free now

Oh, for a lot of good laughs, try Elphis.

I don't know if it's still in the app store, but there was a game with (IIRC) "Vampire" in the title. Sorta metroidvania style.
