Old School RuneScape

Old School RuneScape is based on the popular community led MMORPG. Originally released in 2001, Old School RuneScape changed the way the game was played by allowing players to vote on all future updates. No changes were made to the game unless they were pitched by developers and approved by a supermajority of the RuneScape community. The iOS version is a result of over a thousand questions decided by the players of the game.

The mobile version is free to play with a subscription option for additional content such as larger maps, more quests and skills. The free version includes cross-platform play with the browser version, PvP gameplay, hundreds of quests and boss battles.

You can download Old School RuneScape for free from the App Store, then choose a subscription plan as an IAP. Plans are available starting at $10.99 a month.
