When people are wading into the mobile gaming scene for the first time, they tend to look for analogues to the big console, PC, or dedicated handheld releases. To be honest, a lot of the times, there just isn’t really anything there that will scratch exactly the same itch, largely due to differences in the economics of each market. So no, there really isn’t anything that is just like Skyrim on iOS. But if what you’re looking for is a sprawling RPG with tons of quests, a huge area to traverse, plenty of NPCs and little details to bring the world alive, and an open-ended approach that lets you more or less chart your own way through the content, the best choice hands-down is The Quest ($7.99).
This adventure sees you exploring a castle haunted by ghosts, demons, and other nasty pieces of work. Behind it all are two feuding brothers and the lord of the castle, who happens to be their father. Suffice it to say, there’s something not quite right about this bunch, and it’s up to you to put matters to rest some way or another. This is high-level content, so don’t go waltzing in with a rookie adventurer or you’ll just become another ghost haunting its halls.
If you’ve enjoyed the other expansions Zarista has cooked up for The Quest, you’ll definitely enjoy the tough and thrilling journey through Caeworn Castle. If you’ve never played any of these games and love a good RPG, what the heck are you waiting for? You’ve got a bunch of amazing adventures ahead of you already, and with Caeworn Castle, that list just got bigger.
