These two games follow their originals, story and all. Yet you will find that the graphics, and color, have been greatly enhanced. And there’s a few more “unlockables” added to these special re-release versions, as well as some more story here and there, not to mention a few other little Easter eggs and hidden bonuses….but if you want to find out what these are in detail, you will have to either get one or both of these classic games; I’m not spoiling anything. 


Update: Best Turn Based RPG for Android

There are a ton more Final Fantasy games available for Android now. These even include Final Fantasy 7. I actually can't belive this day has come. We can actually play FF7 on our Android Phones. If you are looking for the best turn based RPG for Android, these are some of the top choices.

You can grab FF7 for Android HERE:Google Play Badge.

As you can see below there are quite a few Final Fantasy options on the Google Play Store. Many of them are official games from Square but some of them are not. A few are made to look like official games but are not. Some of the third party games are still OK, some are junk and should be avoided. Just keep an eye out.


Turn Based RPGs for Android in the Play Store

The world of RPG is changing. Final words…


These seven titles that you can choose to play in either portrait or landscape type orientations are sure to take your mobile gaming experience to the next level, making it more than what you thought it could even be. So give them a shot, and be willing to pay the cost of download as well as any other costs incurred for upgrades or to advance in the game. Some may require this as well as some money in order to stop ads. I usually find my playing experience way better when I’m not using the “free or demo version” of any mobile or PC game but rather playing the real thing.


The same should hold true for you, generally, unless you’re not like most and you actually care for all those pop ups and ads that so frequently arise. But most games will let you pay to get rid of them, fully uninterrupted gameplay making itself your experience. Try and see……


And remember: Gaming is simply not what it used to be --- it has drastically changed in more ways than one, especially since the release of the first iPhone and other phones surrounding it. And the world of mobile has changed for the better! Now, you can play some amazing RPG games like these we mentioned, for a small cost and more! You could even download dozens of similar types of games from the app store and play these for free, as well. Play on!
