In our perpetual search for games that exploit Android’s potential as an emerging platform for core gaming, we came upon 9th Dawn. At first we were kind of blown away by the homey feel of the hand-painted graphics, and that the same were based on the classic RPG treasure that is Richard Garriott’s Ultima Series. We thoroughly enjoyed the first few hours of play and then the main quest hit a wall. An indie game, we blamed it on the devs and moved on. A month later we put out an RPG best of list (we have about 97 different types of these at HD) and to our surprise, in the comments section below the article, a reader complained that we hadn’t put 9th Dawn on the list.
