Try Out These Kemco RPGs For A Satisfying Fix
Chances are, if you're a mobile RPG junkie and are routinely checking the App Store for new adventures to embark on, you've seem Kemco titles dotting both Android and iOS venues. With so many of them available for purchase seemingly every other week, how do you discern which is worth your hard-earned cash and which are better left unplayed? Try out these three for size, and see where you stand!
1. Symphony of Eternity
Widely considered one of Kemco's best efforts, Symphony of Eternity is one of the most traditional, staunchly by-the-books JRPG you'll ever see on a mobile device, but that's part of its charm. Though many of Kemco's ilk refuse to step into the modern era, Symphony of Eternity has to be one of the most recognizably formulaic role-playing games the developer has created, but it revels in its simplicity and offers an engaging story and battle system that work in tandem to weave a tale you'll want to come back to.
Unfortunately, the localization is poor, with dated graphics, so if you're looking for something with a more modern aesthetic you may want to pass it up. If core, paint-by-numbers Japanese RPG mechanics are your speed, this part of Kemco's stable will no doubt appeal to you.

2. Symphony of the Origin
Symphony of the Origin is actually a prequel to Symphony of Eternity, but you wouldn't know that from the look of things. It's absolutely gorgeous, with massively updated graphics from that of the game that comes after it, and it's easily the most modern-looking of the set. What's more, once you complete the game, you can go right back at it with a New Game+, where the difficulty is dialed up just a bit and your characters retains the stats earned from the previous playthrough. It's also balanced quite well and runs about 12-15 hours, so the price is certainly right.

3. Fantasy Chronicle
Fantasy Chronicle is another by-the-books tale of a boy who oversleeps, finds his village set on fire, and sets off to rescue the girl, saving the world in turn. This particular project is a collaboration between Hit-Point and Kemco, and is easily one of the most polished offerings the publisher has to offer. Akin to Dragon Quest in many ways, it features a specialized Guardian Beast system that asks players to assign a powerful beast to each character while providing offensive or defensive magic and attacks. Plucky characters, exciting battles, and a guild-based mission system ensure you'll have plenty to do for the long haul as well, making this easily one of the best choices from Kemco, especially for beginners to the genre.
