Arvale: Journey of Illusion

Arvale is a classic RPG which came out for other devices some years ago, and is well worth replaying on iPhone. While the story is linear the game world is large, and some of the side quests will see you revisiting earlier towns. Graphically it’s bright, colourful and clear, the screenshots don’t do it justice. Weapons and armour decay per use, so you need to keep a good stock. The gameworld is also rich and detailed - don’t forget to talk to all the wheelbarrows ;)

This game left the App store, as of August 2012 it's back, but only as a "Lite" version. The forums have also gone 404.
