Exitium: Saviors of Vardonia

Exitium: Saviors of Vardonia is a beautifully-done KRPG with lovely crisp graphics. It features four playable pre-defined characters, and the story viewpoint is different depending on which one you choose. There is IAP, but it's not essential: it just makes the game a bit quicker and easier for those that want to. There are lots of sidequests, and you also learn about crafting through several sidequests. And there's an online flea market for buying and selling items with other players.

While there's a lot of the usual grinding seen in a KRPG, it feels a lot more productive because you can earn Fame awards: eg for killing 200 grass snakes. The award isn't just an achievement - you also get a nice stat bump from it. Killing 20 snakes earns you DEX +1, 200 gets you DEX +1, WILL +1, then 1,000 sees DEX +3, WILL +3. Even potion consumption and certain crafting actions will earn these Fame stat bumps.
