Is It Any Good?

POCKET RPG IPHONE EDITION is a slimmed-down version of the original Pocket RPG game, which was initially released only for the iPad. It ends up working well on the iPhone, with impressive graphics and an ability to play for short bursts at a time. However, what continues to be one of the more frustrating aspects of the game is that it does not act as a traditional RPG when it comes to leveling up characters. In every mission, players have to start from square one, meaning any progress they made in the previous mission does not carry over. For serious RPG fans, this will be a big problem, but for casual players who just want an accessible and fun fantasy game, this one will fit the ticket.
