Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

A guide to the top 10 mobile RPGs to be found nestling in the Android and iOS app stores

If there's one thing mobile gaming advocates will tell you time and again it's that the devices we house snugly in our pockets are perfect for quick fixes – games you pick up and play in a matter of minutes, before putting back down again.

It's perhaps curious, then, that RPGs – the kind of game many a gamer will voluntarily devote large chunks of their lives to – have found an audience on iOS, and a fairly sizeable one at that. But, as with any successful genre, when the App Store becomes flooded with games all purporting to the best thing since sliced bread, how do you sort the wheat from the chaff?

As ever, we're on hand to give you a guide to the prime picks on the App Store, this time singling out the top RPGs you can hope to pick up. The following ten games are by no means the only games worth checking out if you're manic for mana and have a hunger for all things HP, but they all serve as a more than adequate starting point.

it was probably a typo.

The description of the game (rebels throwing off a dictatorship) is the plot of FFVI. And while the text says that it's not a 3D remake, the screenshot is clearly a 3D remake. So really, the screenshot is the typo. :)

Isn't that the plot of FFII? It says IMPERIAL dictatorship and the main villain of FFII is the emperor (who in spite of going completely nameless in the games has a weapon in Dissdia with his name from a Japanese-only novel, Mateus on it).

They also put PSO2 instead of Phantasy Star 2.

It's not even PSO2es...

Clearly you have never played a Final Fantasy game in your life, let
alone the one you mentioned here. You say the game is FFVI, you describe
it like FFII and the screenshot is of the FFIV remake.

Also that's PSO2, not PSII. That's not even PSO2es. Mistakes like these make the legitimacy of the whole article come into question. Joke's on you though: I use adblock!
