Top 10 iPhone and iPad Game of the Month for August ’12
The month of August was a great month for RPG fans. We have seen 3 excellent ports from Square Enix and Super Giant Games. Final Fantasy Dimensions, The World Ends with You: Solo Remix, and Bastion are all great RPGs that have joined the iOS platform late last August. But lets not forget the another original action RPG, Horn from Phosphorus Games. Powered by the Unreal Engine, this open world adventure game sets a new standard for RPGs on the iOS. Fans of the Walking Dead TV series should also feel the excitement as Walking Dead: The Game episodes 1 and 2 were released. There are more great games which we feel deserve a mention here. Scroll down to check out what they are.
Horn™ Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(4 stars with 3632 Ratings)
We gave Horn a whopping 5 out of 5 in our review and calling it a title that “raises the bar for iOS adventure.” You play a kid named Horn, who must save his kingdom from a curse that turned everyone into clockwork robots. Explore the kingdom in free, open environments, and fight the enemies in Infinity Blade-esque style. With an intriguing story, spectacular graphics, and great game design, Horn is one of the must-have adventure games for the iPhone and iPad.
Final Fantasy Dimensions
FINAL FANTASY DIMENSIONS Universal (Optimized for Both the iPad and iPhone)
(3.5 stars with 1564 Ratings)
Final Fantasy Dimensions was originally released in Japan as a cell phone game. It was remade for the iOS and utilizes a character job system similar to Final Fantasy 5. In August, it was released as a free game, but requires at least $28.99 to unlock all 4 chapters. Despite the price tag, if you longed for another epic, old school Final Fantasy RPG, Final Fantasy Dimensions is definitely worth checking out.
