Mobile Monday

JohnBIt's RPG madness on Mobile Monday! Ok, by "madness" I mean two role playing games. That's kinda mad, though, isn't it? It's like wow, geez, why not just throw a bajillion RPGs at us.

undercroft.jpgUndercroft - A truly remarkable retro-styled first person role playing game by Rake in Grass, creator of Archibald's Adventures and Larva Mortus. Set in the requisite fantasy world, you create characters, assemble a party, and venture into the world. Rumors of a great evil are spreading in the city of Dolbrad, and as a group of adventurers, it's your job to check things out. Turn-based combat is handled well with the touch screen, as are inventory/stat management and moving about the world. With 20 hours of gameplay, half a dozen character classes to use, 750 items, 60 enemies and tons of unique environments, you really couldn't ask for more from an iPhone RPG. Oh, except for a free Undercroft Lite!

hihowareyou.jpgHi, How Are You - A 3D, cel-shaded puzzle platform game that's as quirky as its name implies. You are a little guy who happens to have been turned into a frog, and in order to reverse the curse and win back your true love, you have to work your way through over 30 levels of puzzles, traps, and enemies. Hop around the 3D world using highly-customizable controls. Touch every square you run across in order to move to the next level. Very intriguing game filled with gorgeous artwork and music. A free Hi, How Are You Lite is also available.

2minuterpg.gif2 Minute RPG - Hours upon hours of gameplay, deep plotlines and bags of loot not your thing? 2 Minute RPG does exactly what it promises: delivers just about everything you could expect from a role playing game in exactly two minutes. Slide around the overworld defeating monsters with a touch-based attack system, gather items, venture into dungeons to recover lost items, and earn as much gold and experience as you can. It's... well, it's everything you could want in two minutes' time!

I bought "Hi, How Are You?" when it first came out, and I love it. I love seeing Daniel Johnston's work put to a game, his art and music in an interactive atmosphere - most excellent. The fact that it's based entirely on Johnston's creations ought to be mentioned.

There's a picture of the original "hi how are you" graffiti in Austin. It's still there.

Just a glance at the screenshot for 2 Minute RPG and I'm already wary of its merit. All the monster icons shown are directly from Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

Not necessarily to say it's a bad game, but I can only imagine what else its makers might have swiped.

I second Wendy's statement... It was wonderful to play a fun game AND enjoy the works of Daniel Johnston...

I just came in to say that Undercroft really is an amazing game for the iPhone and deserves every bit of praise it gets. I've been playing it for a while now and could not have been happier with my purchase - and I don't even normally like RPGs or fantasy-themed games.

Pretty much everything about Undercroft feels delightfully old-school, and yet the interface and game mechanics are very intuitive and accessible, and well-suited for casual play. Plus, the game is surprisingly full of tongue-in-cheek references to the cliches of the genre; in the dialogs and quests as well as in the occasional odd thing you stumble upon along the road.

All in all a great little time-waster. I highly recommend giving the lite version a try; it's a good chunk of the actual game's introductory part.
