    flick fishing or snail mail like the guy above said.....

    [EDIT] snail mail is kind of racing, but for strategy id go with a tower defense game....like 7 cities, or field runners (both a little over $3, or creeps its a dollar for now....then again you could just go to the strategy section on the appstore....lol

    You could look at The Creeps! It's a fun tower defense style game.

    Also, Tiki Towers is a fun puzzle game with a simple concept but it can get rather hard.

    Fantastic Contraption is also a great puzzle game, not necessarily "strategical" though.

    If you're willing to spring for $5, Galcon is easily the most played app on my iPod and the online play is incredible. If you don't have access to wifi or anything though, I wouldn't recommend it.

    I would advise you looking through some threads on this forum and seeing what strikes your interest. You could check back with us in this thread after looking at some other threads if you have any questions.

    Welcome to the forums! :D

    Well, here's some good strategy-ish games to take a look at:

    • Galcon
    • Lux Touch
    • Orions: Legend of Wizards

    if you have an extra buck go for Pocket God, great quick game with active devs and a fun stress reliever.

    on another note try the galcon lite version to see if you like that kinda game and lux touch is free and very much like a risk style game

    I also recommend iShoot, if you've ever played tanks on the computer it is like that

    Trust me I have ALL of the Free apps. lmao.

    I've download 180 free ones. :p


    And Tennisking, I played The Creeps on my friends iPod a while back, and I really like it so I'll probably eventually buy that one. And Tiki Towers, my friend also has that one and I beat it in like 2 hours. xD

    But thanks guys, I'll probably end up getting Snail Mail, I watched a review and it looks like lots of fun. :D

    Yea, I noticed Blocked too, I have the board game Rush Hour, and I really like it, so Blocked will probably be a consideration.

    If you like strategy, you can't go wrong with Reign of Swords. There's a "lite" version you can try out for free, btw.

    Zombie Invasion :) .... ok you cought me... I'm a producer for Conniption... but hey, how can you turn down a Zombie Game???

    As for other games I wasn't involves in developing, I really like Wurdle and Flick Fishing.

    Also, go to the search on your iPhone/iPod and type in "Lite" and "free" to bring up some sample games to try before you buy.
