Default Android games with a story?

I'm getting tired of all these casual Angry Birds, other puzzle games and all those "never ending, go for highscore" type of games. I once downloaded this game called "Don't Look Back", it was only about 30 minutes long, but it was a lot of fun and the ending was pretty cool.
So I'm looking for a game that has a proper ending and a storyline. I've tried searching in the Play Store, but all the top lists are filled with these kind of "casual on-the-go" type of games. Also I've tried googling for similar topics many times without any luck.

(In other words: A game that could be released for a console or PC.)

So, it would be awesome if you could come up with a few
Preferably free games, but you can also list some games that cost (but no 10 dollar/euro games, please.)

Thanks!

I know what you mean about the casual games, I still have a few but don't play them much. Most of my time is spent on the RPGs. There's a couple topics on that here.

RPG Recommendation
Best RPG Games
high quality turn based rpgs?


And these are some of the games I've enjoyed:
Cthulhu Saves the World (it was around $3 I think)
Yesterday (There's a free version with ads. I paid $2.99 but that was during a 50% off sale)
Legends Arcana (free with ads, action RPG)
Andor's Trail (free, no ads)
Puzzle Quest 2 (it's an RPG and the battles are done as puzzle games, you can try a little for free then its $5 to unlock the rest, but I think it was worth it).
Vampire's Fall (free)
The Bard's Tale (under $5, I ended up paying for IAP to make it easier, still less than I'd pay on a console game)
Gurk (free) & Gurk II (99 cents)

There's a Kickstarter for an upcoming game called Boon Hill that is very story based. They have to reach level 2 for it to be available on Android, but they're not too far off.
Update: they reached level 2 so the game will also be released on Android.

Welcome to Boon Hill by Matthew Ritter — Kickstarter

Thanks guys, downloading a couple of those free RPGs. I'll download Yesterday as well, but first I gotta get a bigger memory card.
I'll try out the free ones before buying a game.

Keep 'em coming!

The Room? It's not a very good one, but it has an ending AND it's not something where you need to get the highest score etc.

Here's another one with a good story.
Tales of Illyria

It's not free, but it's currently on sale as an "early access" release and it's pretty fun, with good replay value.

If you don't mind splurging a bit, final Fantasy 3 is a pretty good game with a good story to go with it.

I bought it recently and definitely having no complaints on my end with it.

Yeah... Final fantasy is a good one if you're a fan. It is pricey though, 16 dollars, but I believe it's worth it.
