13 iPhone RPGs with some bite

Have a solid chunk of downtime to kill? These games will do the trick

Waiting sucks. Period. Fortunately, there is a cure. While many iPhone games lean towards the short, cute, and casual end of the spectrum, we’ve consulted the dark tome of Baphomet to summon forth a demonically delicious sampling of portable RPG gems capable of consuming voluminous amounts of time and possibly a few souls.

Not afraid to geek out in public? We’ve got your back. Whether you’re sitting in the waiting room at the dentist’s office, stuck on a long bus commute or just mind-numbingly bored, salvation is just a few taps away. And you don’t even need to bring your custom-embroidered dice bag.

Wolfenstein RPG

Price: $2.99

The Gist: Slaying Nazis and undead creatures is a fine, time-honored gaming tradition, and Wolfenstein RPG carries the torch like a trouper. This first-person shooter/RPG hybrid faithfully references Wolfenstein's original old-school greatness, while adding in a cool turn-based step system. Lots of character interaction, funny dialogue text and secret twists give this gruesome dungeon crawler some legs. Expect to encounter a ton of id's trademark black humor littered amongst every nook and cranny, as you trudge knee deep through disturbed graves and body-strewn underground corridors.

Saving Throw: Kicking live chickens and having them turn into a fully cooked, health-restoring meal. Also, punching paintings of Hitler is fun.
