    Just like the title says, list some RPGs with battle systems that aren't turn-based, be they rythym-based, real-time or anything else. GBA games (or anything I can play on my DS, really) would be cool too. Also, my touchscreen inverts colours and makes things hard to see, so anything primarily focused on the top screen would be nice too. Thanks!

    Yeah, but TWEWY is focused on the touchscreen. Dunno about Soma Bringer.

    Phantom Hourglass is not and RPG but I would still recommend it... then again you've probably already played it [​IMG]

    Have you tried Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles? That's a fairly good game [​IMG]

    If the touchscreen in TWEWY is just for controls and stuff and doesn't require me being able to read anything it might be okay. I couldn't play Phantom Hourglass due to everything being so distorted. Soma bringer looked fun but there was too much (unranslated) text for me to bother with. I'll try out the others and see what I think...

    TWEWY's bottom screen you use to drag the player around

    The text is usually on the top screen (mainly the dialogue), but most gameplay is on the touchscreen.

    Some others that haven't been mentioned yet:

    Dungeon Explorer
    Lunar Knights
    Children of Mana
    From the Abyss
    Contact

    Debatable Whether these are RPG's, but they kinda fit what you're asking for:

    Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime
    Eragon
    Custom Robo Arena
    Spectrobes

    he's talking about kingdom hearts 358/2
    a KH DS game about the time while sora is still recovering his memories he lost in kingdom hearts chain of memories.

    kingdom hearts chain of memories is a nice GBA game, but i heard it's a big one.
    so it has to be loaded in NOR ram (don't know for sure, i bought mine)

    Some slot-2 cards require NOR mode for these 32MB games (yes KH COM is 32MB). My 3-in-1 does it in NOR. I thought I saw one that lets you do PSRAM for the 32MB games, but I could be wrong.

    Chain of Memories used a card battle system for fighting. It was clunky and required some learning, but was still pretty fun. KH 358/2 Days appears to use the classic KH gameplay.

    Revenant Wings is more of an RTS than a turned base RPG. So is Heroes of Mana. Children of Mana is a hack-n-slash RPG that I personally enjoy. Many people didn't like it, but I did. If I remember any more non-turnbased RPG's, I'll say them.

    And I was pointing out that theres already a Kingdom Hearts game available, implying that he should use the full title (or at least an acronym) in the future.

    Keep up.

    So basically you want ACTION RPGs?

    Not necessarily - just RPGs that don't revolve around turn-based battles. I was thinking of the battle system in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga when I made this thread, but anything goes. I'll definitely be checking out everything in this thread. That being said, I enjoyed Shining Soul 2 - are there any hack-and-slash games that can compete?

    Also, I own the 3-in-1 so NOR isn't an issue. Thanks all!
