Default Any good RPG games?

Have there been any good RPG games made for Android yet that I just can't find on the Market? I'm not talking about the online or MMO ones like Parallel Kingdom or Mafia Wars. More interested in single player ones kinda like the old Final Fantasy's or Final Fantasy Tactics.

Thanks!

Well, hopefully with Android getting more popular now an RPG developer will come along.

I play a lot of old RPG's off the snesoid and gensoid emulators. If you want an original game your kinda out of luck but there are some great old rpgs that work great on the go thanks to save states.

Got all the Final Fantasy's for the GBA using GameBoid. GameBoid is a good one for the HTC Hero since the GBA doesn't have as many buttons that need to be mapped to real buttons.

Yeah, right now I think SNESoid, NESoid etc are the best way to play consol RPG's. There haven't been any good RGP's released natively on Android as far as I've seen.

Pdragon, do you find that you can still play the GBA games fairly well on the Hero without a physical keyboard? I'm a little worried about thatbefore I decide to purchase the emulator.

I use the virtual keyboard for the start, select & dpad. Search is the A button and Back is the B button. And I manually mapped Left & Right Shoulder buttons to the volume keys. Turned on its side, it works very well. The trackball doesn't work well at all. If they put some more work into it, the trackball could work very well, though. I've used it in some other games where they programmed better for it and it works great.

Heavy action or twitch games are kinda hard because the virtualpad is a little quirky. Like I tried R-Type 3 and couldn't get very far.

However, games like Final Fantasy or ones where very precise movement aren't required work great! Been playing FF1 without any issues. Tried a few of the other ones and they all work the same. It's filled my need for RPG games so it was totally worth the money for me.

If you're really serious about playing a lot of games on Android, you'd probably be better off with a real keyboard. I'm just going to stick with the Hero for now because the Moment doesn't impress me much. Will see what's out next year around this time and probably see about getting one with a real keyboard to play more emulator games.

I'm not used to classes and objects with such an ... arrogant code. Web development is more my forte.

This is my first "smart" phone so I will probably end up doing this just because I am so exited.

I went through the tutorials listed in the dev section of android.com to see how the code flows. I've worked with java before, not direct implementation but via design, and I will admit, it is very potent and you can do almost anything, but to get that anything done is so... clumsy. But I am COMPLETELY biased. PHP is simpler because it is linear. So maybe, I've just admitted defeat because its too hard, or, I can't be bothered.

But then again, making applications that run off the internet means they are cross platform.

Yeah, Java is quite a jump from php. php is just a scripting language, although quite a powerful one now. If that's all that makes you think the Android SDK is arrogant, it's just a learning curve for a more advanced language you'd have to get over. Not arrogance.

I don't know. It has to be very very specific and at times there seems to be either too much or no syntax required depending on a particular function or requirement. In scripting its as simple as if, this, then do that with () and {} and ; to end all. But I guess you are right, it is completely different to PHP. I say it is arrogant, because it only wants to work with you, if youre its best friend.

It honestly sounds like you just haven't done much object oriented programming and stayed with simple procedural methods (if, then, else). While it's rather easy to whip something out in procedural code, it's a nightmare for long term maintenance, flexibility and extensibility. Java likes to use the MVC architecture for a lot of it's larger projects. Look it up and you'll see that while it's a lot more complicated at first, it makes larger projects much easier to maintain overall.

And now this thread is completely derailed!

Ill have to go through it with some of my java buddies. They had to go to school to learn it. I guess this is why I never liked object based things.

It's not derailed. We are discussing an up coming RPG and how useless its programmer is.

Check out our game, PATH OF A WARRIOR on the Android Market.



It has a huge standalone play also with a multiplayer version attached to it too.

Kamyran's Eye is the only one I've found... and it sucks. plenty of potential, but it never made it....

I REALLY like the idea of using old NES/SNES roms. Besides the obvious FF series, any recommendations for games? I didn't get into em until the PS (FF7) days.

Try 4 and 6, both are on SNES.

You'll have to be careful about IV though, because in the US it was released as Final Fantasy II, but they later released Japan's Final Fantasy II in the US, and called that Final Fantasy II, and properly started calling re-releases of II as Final Fantasy IV (like the DS version). To make sure you're playing the right one, you should start off as a knight named Cecil.

VI won't cause any issues, since it was VI in Japan and the US, but to be sure, you start off as a character named Terra.

Edit: Oh, I see you were asking for games OTHER than the FF series. In that case the obvious recommendation is Chrono Trigger, but also give Earthbound a try.

Thanks!

FF series recommendations are great too, VII is the earliest I have played, so I didn't know where to start, only that some of them kicked ass (isn't 6 widely considered to be the best of the series, EVER?)

I like VII the most, but I think 6 and 7 are probably considered the two best.

Oh, and I was wrong about VI. I guess it was originally released in North America as FF III, but you should be able to find it as VI now.

Game itself is great, but the ported interface needs work. Add better touch screen support and I would have loved it. Don't make the user wait for game text to slowly type out and I would have loved it even more! As is, controls are too clumsy.

pretty much same as before, pick up GameBoid on the market and NesOID and then go download roms for em

only thing I've thrown at GmaeBoid so far that it didnt like was Doom II. It ran, but SLOW. Doom 1 was fine, and the Final Fantasy games have been fine.

Although I was sad to discover that FF Tactics for the GBA is nothing like tactics for the PS.... GBA tactics is like little kiddie tactics... no seriously, your first battle is a damned SNOWBALL FIGHT!

That's because web development is pretty much development "lite" edition. Saying it's arrogant code in turn makes you arrogant. My suggestion is to hit up a few tutorials on java. It's a little hard to learn at first, but you'll learn to love Java once you get the hang of it (or so they tell me.)

Personally, I always cling to C++, it's just more sensible to me.

If you were to actually get to the more advanced part of PHP you would find that it can also be used as an object oriented language. In object orientated programming there are a number of conceptual hurdles to learn but the benifit of code reusability should not be under appreciated.

RPG addict here just dying to get a good RPG game for android. I'm not a fan of the emulators, or the "path of a warrior" game. Hoping something good will come out soon.

Default Coming RPG

Hi all, I too got frustrated with the lack of RPGs for android... so I downloaded the Eclipse IDE and Android SDK... 3 months later I am on the verge of Alpha testing. Currently haven't released any screenshots nor preview videos, but should be releasing the game within the next month or two :

defileDroid website

That's the website, I have been randomly updating there with both the game features and progress as well as the crazy task of learning how to develop a game as you go (no prior Java programming experience prior to this project).

If there is something you would like to see in a RPG for the Android OS, visit the blog, shoot me an email and maybe I can work it into the game. Hoping to create the product that I wished was present when I had bought my Android phone.

Regards,
Ben

i have the droid and the controls are horrible with this phone. maybe release an update for the droid with a different control scheme and it will be a winner. Does anyone know of any good hack/slash rpgs or dugeon crawlers for the droid?

any word on customizable controls cause this game (path of warrior) is hard to play on the moto droid i like it but if it had a different control scheme suited for the droid in the options i would buy it in a heartbeat.

I am also hoping for a good rpg. I have my old windows mobile phones like Mogul and at*&t 8525, etc and there are several good rpgs to play on those (Arvale 1 and 2 were my absolute fav). With the potential of these operating system, I am positive even better ones can be made. Just gotta catch the right developers interest.

Zenonia is pretty damn good. Controls leave you wanting, but still a good game. Parallel Kingdoms is a lot of fun, but you should have or make friends to play with, as it's a huge grind. Still a clever use of the tech behind some of these phones.

Netrunners is great, if you like old school text based RPGing. I'd also highly recommend Choice of the Dragon, such a fun 'Choose Your Own Adventure' type of game.

All of these are free, with Zenonia having a free demo version and paid for full app.

I tried Caligo Chaser. Great graphics, polished, but... the controls make me want to cry. Not friendly to touch-only devices at all.

zenonia is pretty much the best RPG available on a phone platform right now...the fit and finish on zenonia 2 is insane, hopefully they port that soon

Sorry to hear that. This game looked like something I'd really enjoy (hearkens back to my favorite 16 bit era of gaming), but since I'm getting an Incredible I need it to control well using the touchscreen.

Maybe the developer will release an update to fix the problem?

Default Zenonia rocks!

I bought the full version of Zenonia and am thrilled with it. Make sure to level up and get some good equipment before entering a dungeon. 1st boss battle was hard, the 2nd is kicking my butt. I'm a level 27 Paladin.

Good story. Fun world. Engaging characters. Pleasant grinding. Music is a bit annoying. Virtual D-pad also annoying. Can't have everything, right?

Recommend it!

I'm surprised there isn't a good multiplayer rpg out yet.

Well thats an interesting collection of words, thank you.

Yeah, I'd imagine a Final Fantasy type game would be good on Android phones.

Some other RPG series types I'd like to see would be Lufia or Ultima.

I also liked Zenonia, but I only played the free version. Otherwise I'd stick with the old nes/snes rpgs.

I would also like to see a new RPG for Android. GBA games can only last so long and I already beat the ones I like. I would like something new (With more modern animations for cutscenes and voice acting would be nice too) I think even just one really good one would give the world a push if it became known.

Also yes, golden sun was a great series

Have any of you played the oldschool Y's RPG? I had it on a TgrfxCD system. Simply amazing storyline, and the Turbographix (sp?) was only 1/4 the power of these new smartphones. I'd actually pay for a fully ported version for my Incredible.

Just a side note, is it just me or do some people seem to get off mentioning what phones they have sometimes? I even saw people saying something like: "I hope this works for my incredible when I get it!" ... lol, really? We all have android phones, pretty moot to mention which one you have. Anyway...

Are there any good turn based RPGs? Besides ones for the emulators? Zenonia and the other one are cool, but they are action. I need some stuff I can play at while at work on the phone, hehe.
