IMAGES SUPPORTED BY GOOGLE [dropcap style=”style1″]R[/dropcap]ole-playing game (RPG) is possibly the genre with the longest history, dating back to the time people used to play it with paper – pencil – dice and a VERY thick book of rules. RPG could be the genre that brings players to the closest to the game world, due to its nature.
Gradually, RPG evolved into different branches, such as hack-n-slash RPG (Diablo, Nox), classic RPG (Neverwinter Nights, Dragon Age Origin), Western turn-based RPG (Fallout), Japanese RPG (Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger). Whatever the type it becomes, RPG still possess the same magical attraction toward all kinds of player.
Unanymously, RPG could be divided into two styles: J-RPG reigns the highlands of consoles, while the rest sticks to the sanctuary of PC. This feud has continued for a very long time, until mobile platform came to the surface and became the new haven for all types of RPG.

One of the main reason is that the controlling with D-Pad is really effective, many times better than using mouse/ keyboard. But when the mobile platform arose with its convenient touchscreen control, the problem was solved and J-RPG has found a new home.
Chaos Rings is the first attempt to bring J-RPG to the land of mobile devices. Designed by the very hand of Yusuke Naora, the maestro behind the famous characters of Final Fantasy VII, VIII, X…, of course Chaos Rings has a very solid standard. Using Dungeon Crawler theme, Chaos Rings strayed a little from traditional J-RPG, yet having a new taste.
For the previous generation, the winner was clearly Nintendo DS, thanks to the unique design of having two screens and a vast amount of great games. One of them is The World Ends With You, an excellent J-RPG with awesome graphics style.
The World Ends With You is so good that it was ported to mobile platform at the start of 2014 – a glory that other NDS games could only dream of – or via emulators.
