15 Best iPhone iPad RPG Games

15 Best iPhone iPad RPG Games – There is a wealth of RPG games on iPhones and iPads, and this makes it incredibly difficult to find games that you can actually spend hours lost in. So to help with this, today, I present 15 of my favorite iPhone and iPad RPG games. Number 15 is Cat Quest II. The first game on our list is a new Apple Arcade experience by The Gentlebros.

Its an open-world RPG, and like the first game, it is still set in a fantasy world filled with cats and dogs. Its up to players to explore the kingdoms, go on quests, engage in combat and use a range of abilities. You can play alone and switch between the dog or cat, or another buddy can join in on the fun with on-screen local co-op.

For co-op, this is best played on an iPad, obviously due to the larger display. On an iPhone it can be a little awkward with two people. Cat Quest II plays much alike the original but has some new features.

We have controller support, but you need to enable it from the options menu, 60 frames per second is here, a brand-new story, new weapons, more spells and abilities and more. To download the game, you will need to be subscribed to Apple Arcade. Number 14 we have Old School Runescape.

I know this MMORPG game is very old now, but it was only released on iOS back in late 2018. But what youre getting here is exactly the same game as the PC version, even connecting to the same servers, and runs at 60 frames per second on supported devices. The best part though is that you can start a task in-game on your desktop PC, and then continue where you left off on your iPhone or iPad. To me, thats pretty awesome. The touch in UI has been translated well for a touch screen too, and you wont miss your mouse and keyboard.

The game doesnt support controllers, but thats okay, it wouldnt really be suited to that input anyway. Old School RuneScape is free to download on the App Store. Number 13 is The Escapists 2: Pocket Breakout.

In this game you get to experience day-to-day life inside a prison, with the end goal of actually escaping. Escaping is no easy task, which means players have to spend the time to work out your getaway plan. While you do this, you will blend into the routine. So attend role calls, clock in for jobs and remain under the radar.

You can play the game alone or with up to four player in local multiplayer. And there are five different levels, two easy prisons and a medium and a hard prison too. Every level has a different layout and new faces, this means no level play is the same. Escapists 2 performs great on mobile, and the publisher, Team 17, went all out on this sport. The touch-interface can be played with three different controls systems, or you can use a controller.

The game goes for $6.99 on the App Store. Number 12 is Crashlands. This may be a fairly old mobile game now, but only recently it was updated for new iPhone screens, and we have same screen co-op mode now. Its a story-driven RPG, all about crafting, base-building, battling and going on quests through the world known as Crashlands. The world here is alive here with diverse locations, striking flowers growing out of the ground, crystals, animals roaming around, and heaps of resources for you to craft into furniture or into a dangerous weapon.

Its also quite a funny game with the wacky conversations with your robo-side kick or with the creatures that youll encounter. Crashlands support controllers and goes for $6.99 on the App Store. Number 11 we have Dawn of Isles. Dawn of Isles, takes place in a stunning world, filled with quests to go on, enemies to battle, pets to tame and other players to meet.

To be honest, the visuals are breathtaking and are somewhat similar to the art style from Zelda Breath of The Wild on Nintendo Switch or Monster Hunter stories on 3DS. Its worth taking a look at, but do be warned, youll be going around talking to character on a regular basis. Its not always about combat and more combat.

Anyway, the game can be played in low settings up to ultra-settings. This means Dawn of Isles can run on iPhones back to the iPhone 5S or iPad Air. The game is free on the App Store. Number 10 we have Monster Hunter Stories.

Originally released on Nintendo 3DS, Monster Hunter Stories arrived on iOS devices in 2018. This is an open-world adventure that has been fully remastered for iOS. So it has new high resolution graphics and improves user interface and a new autosave feature. Since its an open-world game, there is tons to do and explore and the world is filled with large monsters roaming around, and, you can recruit these monsters and fight with them in solo or network battles.

It may be quite an expensive game, but you only have to pay for it once and then you can play a fully fleshed out experience. Number nine is Tempest: Pirate. An RPG game all about battle ships is what youre getting here.
