Sometimes I really question the decision whether or not to apply the label of ‘mobile’ to a game. I mean, sure, technically any game that can be played on a smartphone or tablet is a ‘mobile’ game. For a lot of people, though, the term has some negative connotations to it. I really don’t think that negativity is earned in a lot of cases. There are certainly quite a few ports of games that used to be console games, such as a sizable chunk of the NES and SNES Final Fantasy games. There are also a fair number of match-three and physics-based-puzzle games as well, and in a lot of cases, these work better on mobile devices than they would in any other medium. There haven’t typically been a great number of action RPGs that are native to the platform though. Sure, there are a few, such as the Zenonia series, but one cannot say there is an abundance of them. This is the void that Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman is aiming to fill.
