Hello all, after failing in trying to download the "The World God Only Knows" iphone game (it isn't available for users in the U.S.) I was wondering...


does anybody know any good anime styled games on the appstore for iphone

I know there are vocaloid games (which sadly, I heard were pretty painfully simple with not much challenge)

there is an idolmaster game (but it costs an extreme amount for the purchase 38.99!!) **but I do plan to purchase it later**



but here are some that have won my list of good games

War of Eustrath (great hex turned based mecha game with good storyline and engaging visuals/combat)

Defense Witches (good tower based game)

Honeys! (visual novel for your moments of free time)

Adventure Bar (great final fantasy typed combat game with good storyline and sort of teaches you how to cook) *lol*

The World Of Magic (best pvp mmorpg in my opinion)

Attack on Girl (side scrolling grappling/killing titan action)


But yeah...list your suggestions here!

oh yeah and its probably worth stating that I cannot read Japanese!

thx for your input

It's mostly just sim dating games, and those anime quiz in Norway. Apart from that i tried out this aeria game called Pirate Maidens(Card battle game with lots of cute characters) which was interesting for a short while.

"Anime based"

Anyways, the only visual novel I'd recommend is 999: The Novel. A company used MG's all ages Kira☆Kira - which is good in the "there weren't many other visual novels in English worth playing" kind of way. There also is 5 of MG's Higurashi episodes.

By anime based, I assume you mean just the art style. There are tons of Cave games. DeathSmiles or Espgaluda II would be my favorite.


Edit: The OCD is real -
Just wanted to throw out there, I didn't recommend a single "anime based" game except for going on visuals.

haha wow seems that there aren't too many good anime styled games out there...

I swear I saw something in Japanese on the appstore and I thought it was a zvezda plot game....characters looked the same and everything, except I noticed the hair colors were different...haha maybe someone tried to make money on using a similar style

Other than a handful of visual novels and the card game Kikusui10 mentioned, I really haven't seen anything noteworthy. There a witches tower battle game I tried once but it's completely pay to win so I can't recommend it.

Since most phone games on both iCrap err... iPhone and Android, are Pay to Win games. I tend to not bother with them anymore. You can only have fun for a short while before you hit a roadblock of either taking forever trying to beat something, or paying 2-5 bucks to pay your way past it.

Those townbuilder-esque games are seriously notorious at this. Such as would take like a week or longer to gather the materials to build something and then build it, or just 3 bucks to buy all the materials and build it.

Though sometimes they are not exactly that cheap. Forget which game I played but the only in-app purchases were the 39.99 and the 99.99 purchases. Most of the stuff in the game required the 99.99 purchase to be bought.

Make a japanese iphone account, It will let you buy the games and apps from there.

Anyways, most of the anime-based games are either RPG's you won't understand, Rhythm games, and slot machines.

I am not sure how it is with an iPhone, although I am sure there is a similar workaround.

For Android if you just sign up for a Japanese Google account and get a Japanese proxy then I have read you can access the Japanese games perfectly fine.

The one thing I really don't get is, there are so many F2P games out there that are only available in one language, and they are region locked. The point of region locking is generally because you plan to sell your product to different markets under different conditions. I don't see the point of restricting access to F2P games that you aren't trying to sell outside of a specific market.

This may just be a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, but I feel like some companies make some unpopular choices just to prove that they can.

There is no reason to keep being surprised when the people making decisions keep making stupid ones. Especially when it happens so often.
