Mobile Monday

JohnBHow about a little RPG action to start your new week? Knew you'd agree! But not just any old RPG. No sir/ma'am/other! We've got platform RPGs, puzzle RPGs, roguelike RPGs, and maybe some other sub-genre that hasn't been named yet. Cookie RPG? Mmm, delicious...

dragonslasher.gifDragonSlasher (iPhone, iPod Touch) - A stylized 2D action adventure game that feels like Another World with swords, evil enemies, traps, and loads of upgrades. Travel through town and dungeon as you search for treasures in a series of increasingly-difficult stages. Loot everything you can, kill the enemies you encounter, and return to town to buy upgrades, purchase new magic spells, and much, much more. DragonSlasher is one part action, one part role playing game, but all parts intense.

legendsofyore.gifLegends of Yore (Universal) - Many studios have tried to recreate the classic RPG for the mobile platform. Legends of Yore may be the first to succeed in its simplicity. Part dungeon crawler and part roguelike, this stark-looking title allows you to choose between three classes (warrior, archer, sorcerer) and drops you into a vast world to explore. Loads of weapons to find, plenty of land to trudge through, and great touch screen controls make this one a clear winner, even if you aren't the biggest roguelike fan this side of Moria. Also available from Google Play Android Games as well as a browser version.

crystalsoul.gifCrystal Soul (iPhone, iPod Touch) - One part puzzle, one part RPG, and a similar feel to Knightfall, this nice-looking game manages to blend strategy and role playing elements into an experience that never feels too cerebral. Choose your character and work your way through almost two dozen levels, chopping down enemies that inhabit the hexagonal grid. Gather mana to use special abilities by eliminating groups of like enemies with a single blow, and work your way through the mess to gather treasure and coveted crystals. Using your character's skills becomes key to surviving in this game. The tutorial leaves a lot to be discovered, so be prepared to spend some time with this title before you really "get" it through and through. The free Crystal Soul Lite is also available.

NOTE: Games noted as 'universal' have designed for iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone devices alike. Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info.

I tried legends of yore on my iPad, and it's ok, however, the fact that it takes forever to get from the dungeons to the town is a real annoyance. Other than that, its a great game
