One innovative Action RPG lands in the App Store right after another? Talk about a clash of the titans! "Fara" is another title that's completely worth your time if you're a genre fan, but if you're tight on cash and on the fence between "Fara" and "Mage Gauntlet," we'll be happy to help you decide with another in-depth review!
"Danger Alliance: Battles" clearly illustrates the potential of the Turn-Based Strategy genre on iOS, proving that strategic depth can go hand in hand with a rock solid interface. Those concerned about the content-to-price ratio may very well be surprised by how long this one keeps their attention, thanks to skillful deployment of its limited assets.
If the $0.99 price tag on "Squids" isn't a release sale, please pinch us, because we must be dreaming. Let's put this in food terms: plunking down the purchase price for The Game Bakers' turn-based RPG debut is like going into a bake shop to buy a muffin, and coming away with a luxurious wedding cake without paying a penny more.
Can the presence of Mr. Destructoid single-handedly salvage a videogame? If "Arcade Jumper!" is any indication, the answer is a resounding: "Yes!" Black Hive Media's latest iOS entry may be rough around the edges, but Destructoid's mascot, among other playable heroes, lend it some of the depth I've so longed for in iOS platformers.
"Tiny Defense" may not bring much innovation to the Castle Defense genre, but it's got more units and content than you can shake a robotic stick at. This is one that will underwhelm the genre fan at first, but you might be surprised at how much it grows on you if you give it a chance!
Stop the presses -- "Emissary of War" is going for a buck now!? Hardcore RPG fans will find it short and its gameplay lightweight, but its story and production values are difficult to pass up at this lowered price tier. If you're an RPG fan of any stripe, you are definitely advised to check out the freely downloadable first half at least.
