    I've searched the Forums, but couldn't find anything about this Topic except for older 'What Games would you like to see...' (etc.) Threads.

    So, are there any Civilization/Colonization/Alpha Centauri like Games out yet (or already announced)?

    Also, are there any turn based Strategy Games like Panzer General/Fantasy General (etc.) out yet? (I'm not talking about Risk Clones here, but real Strategy Titles...)

    Try westward, I'm sure not about the building armies/battles aspect of westward though

    I'm not sure about that one, the description states that it is RTS-like and that is not what i'm looking for. Waiting on a Lite-Version of the game first...

    But thx, anyways :)

    Can't post link because im on my iTouch. But type 'westward online' into google and you will be able to play it to try it :) I played it but it was kind of boring, will probably buy iTouch version as it has good reviews though.

    @iGewappnet: Thanks for the Link to Reign of Swords, that one really looks promising. :)

    @Mr. Charley: Thanks, but as i said before, i am not looking for RTS Games.

    @DanM: Thanks for the Tip, gonna try it out this evening...

    I really wish they would port or remake Settlers for the iPhone... that to me is the best "civilization" micro management war game.. my favourite was Settlers 2, didn't like the new offerings.

    I don't know what the heck developers are waiting for.. the iphone is a fantastic platform for any RTS or strategy game.. i'd pay $20 for a good strategy game. there is nothing out right now that comes close


    It looks like i'll probably be getting Westward next... i'm having fun playing the online version @ http://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/westward.jsp

    They made Settlers 6 alright. Gameloft brought Settlers to mobile phones, maybe they will to iTouch! :)

    Ah very interesting I just had a look at it on Gameloft's website.
    Looks more like Settlers 3 though, but better than nothing! I'm going to e-mail and ask them about it

    Oh, I would definitely pay for Panzer General or Age of Rifles on an iDevice!
    Tried the Reign of Swords lite, it was okay but I did not really like the presentation. I'd prefer cleaner graphics, perhaps even standard Nato symbols. But any turn based hex historical wargame with zoomable map would be great.

    I'd like to see traditional war or euro boardgames on iphone too. Battles of Napoleon, Diplomacy, Ticket to Ride and such...

    Not sure if you guys remember Centurion: Defender of Rome

    I used to love that title and think it would be perfect on the iDevice. Any devs out there? :)

    Lux Touch and Lux Delux are very good games. Not entirely civilization-like, but still fun and challenging. Although, Lux Delux was in need of a massive update the day it was released, and still hasn't gotten one. Hopefully it's still on the way...

    It looks like a Risk clone.. I'm more interested in deeper games though correct me if I'm wrong.

    Something like Lords of Magic on the PC would be great, Orions seems good though I haven't started it properly, and Samurai Puzzle Battles...

    You my Sir, have an excellent taste in games. :)

    Still have to try Reign of Swords, but how sweet would actual boardgame conversions be?!? Diplomacy, Friedrich, Axis&Aliies, Shogun, Twilight Imperium, Arkham Horror, etc.

    @danc4498: Haven't played the Deluxe Version, but the free Lux is a simple Risk Clone. Hardly strategic, mostly luck based...

    @BrushMyNoseOff: Never played it, but i looked at Screenshots and they look amazing. Later on i am gonna have a look if it's Abandonware by now.

    @Phi6: Orions looks good too (reminds me of all those TCG's), but i'm gonna wait for a price drop on that one, i think.
