Top 5 Fantasy RPGs for iPhone

Best fantasy role-playing action on iOS

RPGs: love them or hate them, they’re here to stay.

Plodding through dungeons and micro-managing your character to the nines may not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but the App Store has a few secret gems hidden in its crowded inventory.

So, which are the Top 5 fantasy RPGs on iPhone?

Here are the very best fantasy role-playing games on iPhone in which to lose yourself, time, and virtual coins. But probably not in that order.

Tired of stale RPG settings? How about couples fighting to the death in an interdimensional arena for the secrets of eternal life? It's an ITV exec's dream come true, and the setting for Square Enix's Chaos Rings, which brings the Final Fantasy creator's unique style to iPhone.

Norse steampunk odyssey Rimelands delivers an RPG experience with the subtlety of...well, of a hammer. It's simple fare for folk who know what they like. And if it's long dungeon crawls, sprawling skill trees, and methodical levelling-up you're after, Crescent Moon Games's offering could be just the ticket.

iPhone remakes of Sega Mega Drive classics have a tendency to go badly, but Shining Force - easily the best turn-based RPG of 1992 - is perfectly suited to the device. This direct port captures all the skeleton-bashing joy of the original, and works great with touch control.
