Best RPGs on iPhone and iPad
On July 30, 2013
Role Playing Games are one of the most popular genres of games on any platform. iOS is no different with hundreds of games looking to find a place on your iPhone and iPad. Here is a short guide to help you with the decision.
I’m sure many wouldn’t agree, but for me, Bastion in the best RPG game on iOS, excelling at every aspect of the game. Travel across the ruins of a mysterious land, battle enemies and complete levels in this eagle-eye game. What makes it a must have is its eye-popping graphics and the unique story-telling voice over. Though it might seem a little pricey, you’ll soon notice that Bastion is the cheapest in this list.
Infinity Blade II ($6.99)
There is no need of introduction here, especially after the game became free for AppStore’s 5th birthday. After the God King has been defeated, it is upto you to unravel the mystery behind the Infinity Blade. Indulge in hardcore slash and block battle with the Titans. As an RPG, this game is more about its visuals than anything else. Perhaps, the best graphics ever on the AppStore.
Final Fantasy III ($15.99)
Now to a typical role playing game. It is the iOS sibling of the classic Final Fantasy series. Here we control four players either sharing jobs or completing tasks together. Play through pre-set and turn-based gameplays to save the world from doom. The graphic effects are not the best here but if the RPG gameplay is what you’re craving for, look no further.

This is another RPG which stands out with its unbelievable graphics; even praised by some, as the best looking game of the year. Horn tells the tale of a young blacksmith of the same name, who wakes up one day to find that all other humans have been turned into machines. Defeat them in Infinity Blade-like, but more dynamic battles and win back the world.

Pocket RPG ($4.99)
Pocket RPG is a highly flexible game with something for everyone, The entire gameplay differs on the character you play as, ranging from hack & slack to shoot’em up style. A level based progress than a continuous story makes it unique too. With epic bosses and alot of upgrades, this RPG is worth a look.
Each quest in Pocket RPG is a new adventure. The hero starts at level zero with an empty sachel and collects items and rapidly builds their strength to dizzying proportions. Pocket RPG is not a “my numbers beat your numbers” game. Items matter and the way you use them is even more important.
