Cool 2d arpg?

Any other recommended zenonia-like game? Tried crimsonheart, wild frontier, master of dungeon, zenonia series, stone of life, aurum blade.

Edit: i prefer to play range class but its not a must.

Recently I'd gotten a lot of enjoyment out of DragonKnight4 (by PNJ), which is hard but a lot of fun being the only 5G widescreen game in this post and DK4 has free or premium options (like Master of Dungeon). DK4 has a ranged class. Secret of Mana is essential if you haven't played it yet (there are ranged weapons). EpicHeart Plus is another popular iOS exclusive ARPG (there's a free EpicHeart edition too). MinorAxis has some good ARPGs, Fantastic Knight or Exitium, that feature multiple character classes each with their own unique but overlapping storyline... both have ranged classes. I prefer Fantastic Knight of the two, but Exitium has more character classes. I haven't played DragonLair (by PNJ) or Queen's Crown (by Com2Us) yet, stuck in my backlog, but I recall positive buzz when they were released although they are starting to look dated now.

Hopefully these recommendations help. Please post whatever you decide on and how you find it.

That's a great list you have there, and the ones suggested by UC are pretty good too. Here are ones i think you have to try.
