    It's bite-sized, but versatile, which means you get a lot of length out of it even if it's pretty simple to get through initially.

    Featuring dungeon-crawling fun, bite-sized adventures, and multiple character classes to use, Pocket RPG is an enjoyable experience that shouldn't be missed.

    The graphical style is basic but cutesy and it's certainly very easy to just pick up and play. For those wanting a less than cerebral offering, Pocket RPG could be just what they want. RPG fans will need to look elsewhere for their next fix however.

    A great little entry level RPG, it's very light on story, so might not appeal to the hardcore RPG player, but it's intense action, great controls and an easy to use inventory and level up system ensures that it can be enjoyed by all.

    A fun, fantasy-themed, twin-stick action game with good controls, but a few odd glitches and design decisions hamper it.

    Pocket RPG does not mark the first time Action RPGs have been tried on iOS, but it is by far the most successful attempt yet. While Pocket RPG feels unfinished at points, it is a well-designed and fun action game that might become a classic with future upgrades, and should be considered a must-have in the interim.

    Pocket RPG isn't a sophisticated role-playing game, but if you want to sink time into a good-looking dungeon crawler, then strap on your armour.

    Despite its faults, Pocket RPG is still a fun way to pass the time, especially for gamers who prefer to ditch cookie cutter stories in favor of mindless hacking. Just don't expect to play it weeks from now, barring downloadable content.

    It's a fun game, which handles some game elements in its own way. There's an interesting and original skill and item design, but class balanceIt's a fun game, which handles some game elements in its own way. There's an interesting and original skill and item design, but class balance seems to be a bit off. Replay value is rather high if you find any of the 3 characters interesting, because controls work well and the gameplay is fluid. I couldn't bring myself to playing 2 of the 3 characters, but I still played the Ranger more than just once. One issue I had with the game is that completing an entire area takes a long time, so it's not the kind of game you could play on short trips in public transport. Full Review »
