Aralon: Sword and Shadow

Aralon: Sword and Shadow is a high-end RPG with a massive world and at least thirty hours gameplay. It’s rich in features such as lockpicking, herb gathering and crafting, acquiring a mount for fast travel, and there will also be faction systems. A lot of work has been put into making 3D graphics and optimising them for the capabilities of the iPhone 4 and iPad screens, and there’s also a night-and-day cycle. The graphics are possibly the most stunning that the iPhone/iPad have seen to date (end of 2010). The developers are so responsive that they’ve even created a suggestion thread. And yay – dual wielding.
