Default What game is the closest to Warcraft II or III for iPad?

I have been searching for a good game that follows the lines of Warcraft II or III on the iPad. Why Blizzard has not jumped at the chance to make money on releasing an old game on the iPad I have no idea but here we are. Just can't find a game that plays like Warcraft. Any games out now or in development that can scratch my itch?

Yeah just as I feared. There is a very obvious lack of good strategy games. I have tried nearly every title you listed and if I didn't try them it was because they looked like a game I would not enjoy playing. I guess it's back to waiting for Blizzard to get off their butts and realize the gold mine they are sitting on with porting older games.

You might be more satisfied with the turn based strategy offerings. Some good starting places are Knighturn, Highborn, LostStar Tactics, or Great Big War Game.

I find TBSs to be boring and slow. Not my cuppa tea...

I never knew Walking Dead Assault was a RTS. Is it any good? How does it compare to Totar War: Shogun?

Walking Dead Assault is a lot of fun so far, worth checking out. I'm not sure how it compares with Total War. The levels involve smaller parties exploring to evade/attack zombies that remind me of the Tanya levels in Red Alert or hero stages in Starcraft/Warcraft.

Here's some of my favorite RTS titles on the iOS...

Eufloria (probably my GOTY for 2012)
Autumn Dynasty (in my top 10 for 2012)
Anthill
Blue Libra 2
Z
Red Conquest
Total War Battles: Shogun
Samurai Blood Show
Alexandria Blood Show
Amoebattle


And I have to throw this in, because it's one of the best strategy titles on the iOS, even though it is turn-based, it's amazingly deep and has loads of content - not to mention some of the best strategy gameplay I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing (on any platform) - RAVENMARK

*There is only one Warcraft II clone. Plays exactly like it.

*RISE OF LOST EMPIRES (Free) by Gameloft. It used to be a premium title ($6.99) when it came out in 2009. Gameloft promised to add online multiplayer and skirmish modes, but made it a freemium title instead. Also, no retina display.
