A Real RPG arrives at the App Store – The Quest
The Quest – 3D Fantasy RPG is a simply titled game from Redshift and published by Chillingo that looks to follow the classic formula for a PC RPG, not a console cartoon stat monger adventure like the myriad of Square/Enix knock offs. The Quest has been on Windows Mobile and Palm for some time but has finally made it to a superior platform and for only 5.99$. If you are fans of the Elder Scrolls, Ultima Underworld and of course Sierra’s genre defining, Betrayal at Krondor, this new RPG should appeal to you.
Notably however, its graphics are far richer than any of the classics listed above and you can play from the comfort of your iPhone or iPod touch. I know I have waited for a release of a real RPG since the App Store’s inception. Count me as one who is waiting for this game to be bloody amazing.

The best part? The iPhone version is had for less than its Palm or Windows Mobile counterparts.
