Default Hobbit-style RPG

Ever since I started reading The Hobbit, I have been wanting a good free adventure game in which you travel around ,fight creatures , etc. I think that kind of game is called an RPG. Correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway , do you know of anything like that ? Freemium is okay , although I don't like games with energy meters.


P.S. this is my first post.

Yep - its RPG if its like Skyrim, and MMORPG if its a RPG with a large player community.
There are lots of RPGs/MMORPGs on the app store

Order & Chaos Online - http://www.ign.com/prime/promo/orderandchaos-free get your own code while it lasts (its $6.99)

Dungeon Hunter 1-4 - 1 and 2 are premium while 3 and 4 are freemium, would recommend 2, though.

Heroes of Order & Chaos - Its a MOBA, plays and looks like DotA/LoL, and its free.

Contact Exact-Psience, he knows every game you don't.

Or, eh, ask this Vovin guy. I've heard he's also quite experienced with that stuff.

If you remember The Hobbit ZX Spectrum game then you can't go wrong with the Lords of Midnight.

Elite hinted they were releasing an 80s classic in August. Wonder if that's the hobbit

I've got a lot of point n click games but not many text adventures. Worth checking out that collection of text adventure (Zork collection). Think they're text only)

It's normally best to compare stuff that is slightly different otherwise there is normally no difference. I'm sure in 1982 there was definitely graphics in the Hobbit though. Beautiful illustrations they seemed at the time too.

The Quest
9th Dawn
Chrono Trigger
Secret of Mana
Fall of Angels
King of Dragon Pass
Aralon
Ravenmark 1-2
Final Fantasy 1-4

Also while not having sprawling environments roguelike games emphasize world exploration in randomized (but sometimes simple) environments so might be to your taste. Consider Mysterious Castle, Dungeon Plunder, Legends of Yore, Cavern, 100 Rogues, Sword of Fargoal.

You'd love him. Nice, helpful guy. Also, he really likes Megadeth.
