Top 5 Fantasy RPGs for iPad

Best ways to crawl through a dungeon on iPad

Ever since Tolkien first introduced us to his enchanting world of elves, dwarves, magic, and mythril, gamers have sought to explore fantastical realms through digital means.

Though often similar in tone and setting, there are countless fantasy RPGs available across the various gaming platforms, all competing for the opportunity to transport you to a faraway land filled with intrigue and wonder.

We undertook a perilous quest to answer this burning question: What are the Top 5 fantasy RPGs on iPad?

So, stock up on health potions and keep one eye on your mana, because we're about to venture off the map.

Tired of stale RPG settings? How about couples fighting to the death in an interdimensional arena for the secrets of eternal life? It's an ITV exec's dream come true, and the unusual setting for Square Enix's Chaos Rings, the hit iPhone RPG from the man behind the Final Fantasy series.

A refreshingly light-hearted take on an often po-faced genre, this comedic PS2 conversion offers laughs as well as loot. If you think most RPGs take themselves a little too seriously, then buying this game should be the next quest in your logbook.
