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. A large number of expansions are 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. In the below tables you can see the expansions available for The Quest HD, as well as those that are only currently available for the original game. Many of these are still being ported over.
The quest can be played on iPad or iPhone and in portrait or landscape mode.

Wish some of these games had a demo mode so you can try before you spend your money and find you don’t like it
Yes – only being able to play x amount would work, then you could pay to unlock the rest of the map. If you like that style of RPG they’re definitely worth it.
