The Bard’s Tale
The original game was released in 1985 and this classic game has been ported to work on the Android platform.

Cthulhu Saves The World
Who doesn’t love humour in role-playing games? The game has a great tongue-in-cheek narrative about the squid-faced evil lord Cthulhu who has lost his powers. Being eager to gain his lost powers, Cthulhu is in a fix because he must save the world from everything. Basically, a band of heroes have sealed away his powers using a mysterious sorcerer. Being cursed, Cthulhu is out to save the world so that he breaks the curse and regains the powers sealed far off.
