I'm trying to develop a game on a mobile platform and I'm having a lot of trouble developing a diablo-like equipment screen. I'm having trouble fitting all useful information on one dialog. Inventory, inventory item stats, currently equipped item stats, a delete button, etc. I was hoping I could look at some UIs of other similar games but I'm not really finding any sites dedicated to showing off good mobile game ui design ideas/patterns.

What about checking the mobile stores? Many games have free versions, and I believe the usually low cost (at least project budget-wise) would not suffer much even if you needed to buy such a game to look at the construction of the interface. I would start from the most popular ones (reading comments, some may regard interface) or ask Google about most popular RPGs for given platform, you would get e.g.: ipad.about.com/od/rpg/tp/… I know each game is specific, but this is something you will have to deal yourself or ask a more specific question. –  Dominik Oslizlo Aug 28 '13 at 19:50

I had the exact same problem while I was developing my own game, so I decided to just build such a website.

The website is called game-patterns.com and is a showcase of screens from various mobile games, categorized into important patterns (i.e Level Selection, Tutorial, in-app store etc.)
