    "I'm a big fan of this game. I haven't found a lot of RPG games for Android that I like, but Pixel Dungeon kept me interested and engaged for hours. There is a lot of content for a mobile game and many fun areas to explore. Highly recommend!"

    "I love this! Exactly what I was looking for -- a fun RPG I can play on my phone. This reminds me a lot of WoW, except that I don't have to play with other people. I will spend far to much time playing this game, I can already tell."

    "A cute RPG game that I enjoyed playing on my Android phone. I always like games where you find better weapons, etc. as you travel. It can be addicting to always want to upgrade your loot."

    "I have long commutes on the train every morning, so I was looking for a game that was both diverting and also captivating. Knights of Pen & Paper has a really fun interface, and I love the art! It's kept my commutes from becoming too boring."

    "This is incredibly short and hard to recommend at full price. However, if you find it on sale for 99 cents then i'd say go for it!"

    "I wanted to download an RPG on my phone to kill time at work. Titan Quest Anniversary edition was just what I needed. Being able to get myself into the land of Ancient Greece and Egypt, I went about trying to conquer all I could. Very detailed and entertaining for anyone."

    "A fun little game, but not what you'd call spectacular. It is noticeable for its sarcastic humor and that makes it endearing, definitely. But the frequent spelling errors somehow add a clunky, sloppy feel to it, which should have been easy to avoid. And although it is enjoyable, I must admit I ended up feeling I had wasted my time after playing 20 minutes of it. Which doesn't happen to me that often. So..."

    "If you've been craving a role playing game for Star Wars and have an Android phone, you're in luck. You have to save the Republic on your quest and fight with the Jedis. This game is seriously the best for major Star Wars fans."

    "This is a pretty good game, but man did it drain my battery. I can't play it for very long without my battery getting hot and/or needing to be recharged. I did enjoy all the options for building your character though. Overall, not a bad recommendation."

    "Just as in life, making decisions with unclear consequences is the main point of The Banner Saga. You should not assume anything as kindness can lead to failure while being less than kind can aid your success. I just follow my instincts, apply some logical reasoning, and hope for the best."

    "Having been a Final Fantasy fan for many years, I had been anticipating this release for as long as I've had my Android. What a disappointment! It really brings out the limitations you have when playing on such a small device. I'm going back to my computer until they make bigger phones."

    "I have always been a huge fan of the Dungeon Hunter series and this version does not disappoint. Easily one of the best action RPG's I have played over the years. The graphics are engaging and the game play is very satisfying. Multiplayer is fantastic and very smooth while also be quite challenging."

    "The original Brad's Tale games first came out in the 1980's and opened up new role playing worlds for the people who grew up playing these games. This new android version is faithful to the spirit of the original games that I grew up playing. The original games are also included when you purchase the app."

    "I was very excited to see this game from 1997 being offered on my phone. I was pretty happy until I used the arrow keys to select and up pops a prompt that allows all of my character stats to be set to their maximum values. I wish they would have left this out of the game but I still found it fun even after all these years."

    "This game stands out among it's other mobile competitors as it is not a watered down tap-happy RPG like most others are on the Android. The game is approachable to people who are new to the genre but also fun to play for people who are seasoned vets of other RPG style games. The graphics are well above average and the mechanics of the game itself are unique and one of a kind."

    "Baldur's Gate II is a great RPG for Android devices. It is a classic game, now available for your phone. There are many worlds to explore and enemies to defeat. I enjoyed the original version on PC, and this is just as good. A classic example of the RPG genre, with good controls and features. It is perfectly adapted to the Android platform. I highly recommend it."

    "You Must Build a Boat is is a unique type of puzzle RPG game. It has very basic graphics, but this is intentional. It is quite a bit different from other RPG games I have played, with more puzzle emphasis than most. There is a lot to the game, but easy to learn and has a casual feel. It is a fun and interesting game, but not your typical RPG."

    "I just got my new Andriod tablet and wanted some new RPG games to play when I had a little extra time. A quick search on the Google Play store and I found Dungeon Hunter 5. It was highly rated and had a very large number of reviews. It's a really fun game and I'm almost spending TOO much time playing it."

    "I was looking for a new RPG game for my Android phone. I came across Monster Legends. It's a game where you can train legendary monsters, which is super cool. I love the graphics and the characters. There is so much to explore with it; it's one of my favorite games on my phone now. Really, if you love RPG games and mobile games in general, check this out!"

    "I enjoy playing RPGs and was looking for one I could take with me on my Android phone. I came across Fire Emblem Heroes, which is made by Nintendo, and was very surprised by the content and detail. I was worried this was a watered down version of a more mainstream game, but it had a lot of depth and it was very fun. I would highly recommend this game!"
