We've got high expectations. Not only do we want to be able to use our phones to make calls and send texts, but we also want internet access, games, apps that get us to social media, a music player as well as online music. We want to watch movies and read books and take pictures and -- whew, our little phone is starting to get a little crowded.

If you've followed video gaming for any significant amount of time you'll no doubt have noticed the ridiculously dumb character design some games love to include. We're talking about the bikini-wearing battle mages and the shirtless, manscaped medieval warriors that litter most fantasy games. That's why we're totally psyched for Battleheart.
When iPhone gaming first gained popularity we expected hits like Angry Birds and Doodle Jump, but few people foresaw the large influx of quality RPG experiences. Specifically, the large amount of RPGs that have been coming out of South Korea where mobile RPGs had been popular many years before it caught on in the West.
