The Quest HD

This 3D single-player RPG by Redshift came out for Palm OS and other devices

some years ago. It’s so great that even if you played it back then, it’s worth getting again. There’s a huge game world to wander around, lots of dialogue, and some dungeon puzzles. It’s very fully featured with sidequests, puzzles, and many spells and skills to learn. Even fighter characters will find spells vital at higher levels. Diseases, plague and poison add difficulty. Several expansions are already available, with more planned.

As of 2016, a new shiny HD version of The Quest was released. A couple more dungeons were also added. The game is highly worth rebuying even if you played the original version, and there are plans to re-release all the expansions in HD as well. (As these are released, the original game links will be replaced with links for the HD versions).
