Mage Gauntlet by Rocketcat Games

(4.9/5) Mage Gauntlet for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a retro-styled action RPG. In the game, you control Lexi, a young girl with a curse that prevents her from using magical items and spells. She travels to a wizard named Whitebeard's tower to find a way to cure herself. The wizard provides her with a magical gauntlet that allows her to finally use magic, a sword, a cloak, and a ring. You must guide Lexi on her quest to save the land from the evil lord Hurgoth. The game has 16-bit graphics, similar to games from the series, "The Legend of Zelda." The environments are detailed and fun to explore and discover secrets. The developers really paid attention to the controls, with a joystick that appears wherever you tap on the screen, and disappears when you lift your finger from the screen. There is a button for attacking and dashing, and spells have a special menu in which you can choose what spell to use. Overall, Mage Gauntlet is one of the best action RPGs out there. The game is full of action and plenty of levels, and is definitely worth the $1.99 it is on sale for. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mage-gauntlet/id460697573?mt=8
