If you are a fan of classic RPG games like Chrono Trigger or Secret of Mana, then this next bit might interest you. There are six RPG games from Kemco up for sale on the Play Store right now. You can get each for $0.99 and they all offer that good old Japanese RPG recipe – a pinch of magic, a handful of evil creatures, one unexpected hero, lots of dungeons, prolonged walks in the woods, and awkward conversations to taste. Pour it all in a faraway land or place it on a flying continent, shake, don't stir, and serve to the hungry RPG gamer, for countless hours of exploring.
When doing battles, the game switches out from its normal bird's-eye view, and brings you down closer to your characters, where you can watch them fight in their full manga-animated glory. The fights are turn-based, so you don't have to worry about controlling all your characters at the same time.
On to the games!
1. Soul of Deva
Soul of Deva places us in a world, where demons are a very real thing, and they like to spend their days by harassing humans. What elese is a demon to do, really? The game puts us in control of the girl Sania, who is supposed to become "the savior" once her dormant powers "wake up". Keeping true to its genre, the game will soon introduce other playable characters, who join the party to help our protagonist. Among them is a half-demon (yeah, apparently those are a thing, too), a tough looking female soldier, and a graceful swordsman.

2. Shelterra the Skyworld
In Shelterra the Skyworld, you land in the shoes of Claude – a pretty normal fellow, who lives on the floating continent of Shelterra and dreams to be a "professional adventurer" – we assume this is the best type of adventurer to be. Anyway, Claude is soon to find out that the continent has been tainted by some evil essence and is about to fall from the skies. Its only hope is a talking stone that happens to be in the possession of Claude. Looks like the little guy is about to fulfill his dream.

3. Chronus Arc
Chronus Arc is about a young boy – Loka – and his quest to find the artifacts, named "Chronus Fragments", in order to rewind time and change his traumatic past. Apparently, in the world of Chronus, such "Time Rewinding" is only possible once every 10 years, which sounds quite generous, if you think about it. Anyway, lots of dungeons and puzzles in this one. Again, 4 companions can be added to Loka's party as his journey progresses.

4. Chrome Wolf
Chrome Wolf sends you over to a land of strife, war-torn by two factions – the Lenior Empire and the Hubirt. Apparently, the squabble is over a magical material, called Elementite. The Empire has internal problems aswell. See, it has been harshly discriminative of its unicornian people (that's half-man, half-unicorn) for way too long and this has slowly snowballed into civil war. You start the game as Kruz, an empire soldier who refused to kill innocent unicornians and defected. Soon, he's allied with 4 former colleagues and off they go to save the world! Oh... and by the way – there are guns and tanks in this fairytale-ish title. You're welcome.

5. Journey to Kreisia
Journey to Kreisia is about a young high-schooler, Yusis, who's magically transported to Kreisia to become its savior. Apparently, the land is an utopia, where 3 races peacefully coexist, however, every 10 years (OK, we are beginning to see a pattern here), an "Overlord" comes by, threatening to consume the land. What else is young Yusis to do, but fight?

6. Infinite Dunamis
Set in a world, where magic and machinery mix, Infinite Dunamis puts you in the shoes of Luke – a young engineer, who one day happens to witness a band of men attacking a girl. Being the hero that he is, Luke rescues her, only to find that she is half-girl, half-robot... Yeah. And by the way, they also uncover a plot that endangers the world, so they set off on a journey to save it.
