Avernum is the iOS remake of the classic 1999 Spiderweb Software RPG, itself an update of the original 1995 Exile game. It's the first game in a series of six, and is possibly the largest, best classic RPG title yet made available for iOS with dozens of sidequests, a huge outdoors, and eighty towns and dungeons. Graphics are crisp with isometric, turn-based combat. Harder battles need some strategy and tactics, or you can switch the game difficulty level down and just hack-and-slash through.
Extensive customisation is available for your four party members, so you can play a pure class or a mixed class, and also choose to play a cat-like race or lizard-like race, which have different benefits and weaknesses from human characters. For those wanting to jump in quickly, pre-configured characters are also available. Gameplay is estimated at 30+ hours and there is zero grinding.
