    I am looking for an RPG that doesn't have turned based combat, is long and has levelling up etc. Which ones would you guys recommend?

    1. [app]Chronicles of Inotia: Legend of Feanor[/app]
    2. [app]Dungeon & Hero[/app]

    I've yet to try it, but [app]Imprisoned![/app] may also fall under your category. (I'm not sure though.)

    Along with those, which are real time, you might want to consider [app]Arvale[/app] and [app]vay[/app]. These, unlike Inotia and D&H, are turn based. I haven't gotten vay yet, but Arvale's quirky story and fun gameplay made it really enjoyable, WELL worth the $3 price tag IMO. As for vay goes, i've only heard good things about it.

    I don't have Inotia but I'm enjoying Dungeon & Hero A LOT, its a very good game. The only thing I don't like is the controls and movement could definitely be smoother and the dialog has bad grammar sometimes which is annoying. Overall though, I LOVE IT!

    Both also amazing, but sadly as you mentioned turn based. :(

    I'd personally recommend Vay above all others if there were no conditions besides RPG. ^ ^

    It was the first application I purchased and the only one I planned before I even had the device. :p

    I have vay and have spent around 4 hours on it and I am only 10% done. The combat is fun and the game has a zelda-ish/NES vibe. Worth the 5 dollars

    In my personal order of preference:

    1. Chronicles of Inotia - lots of grinding involved but for some reason I can't stop playing it. I'm level 40 now about to finish it. I'd say I've spent about 15-20 hours on it already. My most played app ever.

    2. Dungeon & Hero - good game so far, more action/rpg than Inotia, more depth / story, quests are mainly kill X amount of monsters or go get X item but otherwise this is probably the most fleshed out RPG available on the app store at this current time.

    3. Arvale - Game ported from pocket PC platform, excellent writing, good humour, overall good RPG package. This is turn based combat though.

    I've owned Vay since July last year but haven't been able to actually get into it for some reason.

    I'm a big fan of RPG.
    I enjoyed Dungeon & Hero very much and cleared it.
    It's a very FUN game. Worth 5 bucks.
    I don't want to spend money on other RPGs out there.
    I'd rather wait Diablo 1 or 2, Ultima 6 or 7, or Might and Magic etc..

    I am also waiting for a good rpg to come out for the Iphone from the Square/Enix shop. I was disappointed with their tower defence attempt. Not that it was a bad game, just that I exspected more to come from the SE shop.

    I've already gotten wind of such an RPG. Not sure if it will follow a franchise or not, but if I find out anything, I'll leak it.

    Dungeon and hero is my vote, including your prefrences. Although, as already mentioned vay is awesome( even though I can't beat the last level)

    All this talk about Vay has made me want to buy it even more! (That and that it's the only one on the iPhone i haven't played yet). The beauty of getting an RPG for the iPhone is that the gameplay, like most RPG's, has alot of depth. This translates into multiple hours spent on it and the feeling that you really got your money's worth.

    And yes Zandog, PLEASE leak some info as soon as you find out :)

    I'd have to say Imprisoned is a good game. You navigate the island via arrows and combat is real-time and controlled by the player. All in all, good stuff and worth $3.99.
