I'm looking for games in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics and the like. I always use to love playing them while travelling and now having an Android phone I figured there might just be one out for it.
I find it rather difficult to find good games on Android as the market is pretty convoluted and the sections are not very restraining meaning there is always a lot to go through.
Any help would be appreciated.

There will be a tactical RPG called "Spectral Souls" coming out soon (hopefully), I too would also like these kinds of rpgs out for android devices. Crossing my fingers for a Disgaea android game!

So is there anything similar that can tied me over until that comes out?
With the constant increase in popularity of Android, I'm hoping some bigger commercial developers will start porting their games. iOS is getting the actual Final Fantasy Tactics, here is hoping that happens for Android.

Well if you need to take care of your Tactical RPG fix, there are a bunch of emulators for gba/gbc, nes, snes and other vintage consoles that I'm sure have at least a handful of TRPGs. As for "original" ports or even original games overall, I don't think there will be much effort made until Android devices meet the same market share as iOS devices.
On top of that, with hardware and software variations from one Android device to the next, it would increase the difficulty of making a game that many can enjoy. But let's hope I'm wrong about that in the long run.

I just saw that Spectral Soul beta video, and I'm really impressed. I didn't think Androids would be able to support intricate games like that. Guess I'll be ditching my PSP for good once games like those come out.
But I bet it kills the battery pretty quickly...
I appreciate the sentiment though, as I somehow completely forgot about using either of them.
