    Are there any Age of Empires type games in the app store or in development? I would love to play this game on my iPhone... Is there any chance that this game will be made?

    I'd love to see a game like AoE too but I fear the iPhone/iPod touch might suffer in the memory dept. for such a game (but I could be wrong). I guess it depends on the size of the map, amount of units allowed, players, etc.

    Well, considering MS closed down the studio(Ensemble) that made this game after they finished Halo Wars I think it's kinda inconsequential. I'm sure some other company could port the game. But I think something "like it" would be good enough.

    Isn't Warfare inc exactly what you are looking for?

    You can't compare WI with AoE. I would love to have the DS version of AoE on the iPhone. It was a perfect game with a little encyclopedia included. WI i a good C&C clone, but AoE has a very different setting and overall feeling.

    I currently use 7 Cities to fill my need for a medieval strategy game.

    Or the Windows-Mobile-Version, which is still the best game on this platform. So it would be possible to come up with a good version, but I doubt they will do it.

    Me too. I like the DS version more than the PC/Mac versions. Less "crap! they're invading and I forgot to spawn some cavalry!" ...yeah, I'm not brilliant at strategy games... :p

    Hahahaha...I'm the same way...

    Oddly enough, I enjoy the building part of AoE more than the battle part and yet I can't seem to get into SimCity, figure that one out.

    BUMP


    Seriously... why are there no good strategy games... like Red Alert, Age of Empires, Total War....

    Warfare Inc I played and beat on my Palm , so I don't feel like paying AGAIN for that... and the other one (can't mem the name) doesn't really look that compelling...

    I don't like how everything is futuristic or Alien/zombie... I like the games i have already ZA! etc but i'm really looking for something Historical

    Age of Empires ran on my old Asus Mypal, I am sure that the iphouch could handle it.

    i had a perfectly capable AoE on my pocket PC at least 5-6 years ago, surely the iphone could handle it.

    edit: ooh, someone mentioned myth. assuming he means bungies RTS series.. favorite game ever =)
