The Japanese developer KEMCO has been developing iOS games for some time; most of them bring epic RPGs (some might call them JRPGs) in the classic 16-bit style. Alphadia, one of their more popular titles, is described by the developer as a classic Japanese style role playing game. It follows the adventures of the small town resident and young hero, Ash, after he and a friend rescue a mysterious girl from foreign soldiers and escape into the woods. It's up to Ash and the friends he makes on his new quest to help this girl complete a secret mission that will bring peace to the land again.

The game employs a very traditional turn-based battle system and boasts a substantial plot with over 30 hours of gameplay. Along with the rest of the game, the high-res graphics are also very reminiscent of those old console RPG classics. Just one look at the game and gamers will feel transported back to the days of the great SNES and Sega RPG titles.

Kemco has also just announced a sale on Alphadia reducing the price from $6.99 to $0.99. So far there has been no mention of when that sale will end so players looking for a good chunk of game for cheap might want to check it out.
