Ravensword: The Fallen King ($4.99): I enjoyed this game due to its difficult monsters, an interesting side-game that helps earn money and the fact that the quests are challenging in general. It is of a more traditional dungeon questing/grinding style RPG where nearly all of your missions are determined mostly by following quests given by non-player-characters (NPCs). While the 3D environment is well done and the monsters, buildings and NPCs relatively well-rendered for an iPhone, play is fairly slow due to the large environment and very predictable and repetitive monster spawning. Additionally, the control scheme is in dire need of another d-pad. Fans of the progressive rock band Rush note: Free healing can be had in the cemetery at The Fountain of Lamneth!
