    Does anyone know of a game that similar to Advance Wars (DS GBA)?

    It has got to be one of my all time favorite games for a portable device and I would love to see a port or something similar to play.

    If you want to see what I am talking about, head to: http://advancewars.com/

    Cheers!

    Well I played the original on the GBA without a stylus and it worked perfectly.

    The touchscreen controls could easily be added.

    Try Reign of Swords. Closest thing to an Advance Wars clone on the app store.

    Yes its really similar to Fire Emblem (like andvance wars but in medieval)

    A advance wars clone for iphone would be great, but there is not gonna have a "Advance Wars" officialy because its nintendo

    Try the light version. IMHO, it is not even close to Advance Wars in difficulty and gameplay.

    But I haven't given it a full run yet, so I may change my opinion.

    Advance Wars is such a great game, I agree we need something like this on iPhone/iTouch. Reign of Swords has gameplay similarities, but it just doesn't feel like the same kind of game. It reminds me more of the battles in Heroes of Might and Magic (does anyone remember those games?).

    this is why I still keep my ds around :) Yeah the iphone games are great and are getting better and better everyday, but the nintendo made ones have more charm and personality through the polish and dialog :)

    Even though I have my iPotch, I still find myself playing true games like Final Fantasy Tactics A2 on the DS.

    Reign of Swords is a piece of crap, at least compared to advanced wars. Agile forces looks amazing :)

    An AA clone is def. needed!

    I didn't like reign of swords. It just didn't feel right to me after I had played Advanced Wars for so long and I will never purchase the full version of RoS. I'll wait for a better clone to come out
