Good stories in iOS games

Hello all,

I am nearing the end if Bioshock Infinite and I am head over heels about the story. But since ai spent a large amount of my time (about 10-14 hours a week) commuting I play alot of mobile games. So I was hoping to combine the two and find some mobile games with deep interesting stories.

I am open to pretty much any genre of game. I am not a huge fan of adventure games, but if the story is exceptionally interesting or meaningful I would definitely consider it.

Thanks!

Seconding Spiral and the Chaos Rings series.
Infinity Blade1&2 aren't too bad either. The book is the best of the 3, IMO.
If you like reading, go for the Tinman gamebooks. And Sorcery!, gamebook gone modern if you will.

The RPGs from Spiderweb: Avadon, and the Avernums. Baldur's Gate, which unfortunately isn't available currently.

Strategy: Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion. King of Dragon Pass (bring lots of time). Elder Sign:Omens. The Kingturn games by Mangobile. Imperium Galactica 2.

Action-Adventure: Lili

Action: Epoch.

I don't think you'll find much that really compares to Bioshock but consider...

Gemini Rue
Fall of Angels
Chrono Trigger

I haven't played many of them on iOS but the Telltale Games seem like a good bet (Sam/Max, Walking Dead, Back to the Future, Monkey Island). Monkey Island along with Sam & Max were amazing on PC years ago.

Yes, yes, yes a thousand time yes on Walking Dead and Gemini Rue (mind blowing plot twists in that one). Home is another.

The Angry Birds series also have really great stories.

Don't listen to these people... The only story you'll ever need to know is the epic story of the alpaca, his mutations and his endeavors.

Two words: ALPACA EVOLUTION.
