Nothing beats the real thing... playing Wizardry 1 (PSX japanese remake) in the little free time the next update leaves me. PSX emulation runs fine on Android, and much more convenient than dusting off your old consoles and disks/catridges.
Heroes of steel & templar battleforce , both turn -based rpgs and pretty epic, like the other trese bros. games. Also worth a blast is S.O.L (stone of life) which is a touch bonkers but huge fun. All work well on a decent mobile...
I just started playing a game I found called Buried Bornes. It's interesting. Everything is turn/decision based from room to room. No huge list of equipment to haul around. All you have is your load out and each item you find represents a choice. Weapons,armor and skills are all done in this fashion.
The linear Gameplay is a little different. When you die,you start over. It tracks your high score and you have a log to see what levels you died on.
It may be akin to something before my foray into the rpg world,but to me it's different and slightly interesting. Not sure if I like it yet though.
