Why we love it: When will App Store developers learn to stop ripping off casual fare like Doodle Jump or Pocket God, and start following the example of more elaborate and ambitious fare like Zenonia? This RPG plays a lot like Zelda, but will remind you of numerous other SNES-era masterpieces as well. The graphics, music, story and characters are top-notch, and as far as value is concerned, Zenonia will give you more hours than anything else the iPhone has to offer.
