Turn Based Strategy

Into the Dim

Into the Dim is a retro turn based RPG dungeon crawler, but game developer Happymagenta has taken the retro elements to another level. It has grayscale visuals and the music and audio sound exactly like what you’d get with an old Game Boy game, but in spite of this, Into the Dim is actually a lot of fun and challenging.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes from Electronic Arts is a turn-based RPG that lets you play characters from the Star Wars universe including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and the newer ones from The Force Awakens like Kylo Ren, Finn and Rey. You won’t get them immediately of course, as they’ll become available the longer you play, but there are other reasons to play this.

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival from Scopely is a turn based RPG based on the popular comic books. The game takes place when Philip Blake gets to Woodbury just before he became the Governor. This game by the way, focuses on the comic books, so don’t expect much resemblance with the TV series, but this is still a cool game.

Curio Quest

Curio Quest from 5th Planet Games is a turn based game similar to other “capture the monster and battle” titles in the iOS. If you’ve played those games before, getting the hang of it will be easy. But while it does bear some similarity to other titles, Curio Quest also has unique elements that give it a distinct look and feel.
