Advanced Wars style TBSs

Ok - i've been doing a bit of research on Advance Wars type games.

There are a few threads on the same topic
(Cross posted this in each of these)

82223 (this one)

From what I can gather there are quite a few games
(Prices are in NZ dollars - so drop them a bit for $US)

Uniwar $1.29
Mecho wars $1.29
Rogue Planet $6.49
Battle for Wesnoth $5.30
Battle Academy iPad only. $24.99
War of eustrath ipad only. $4.19 ($6.49 iPad)
Great little war game $2.99
Armament 2028 $2.59
War3100 0.99c
Transformers G1 Awakening $1.29
War Generation not available in New Zealand store?!
Agile Forces - in development

Military Madness - a remake of an old TurboGrafx game
Civil War 1863
Tank Battle 1944
Tactical Soldier-Undead Rising

I'm sure there are more. reply with any others and I'll update this post.

I havent tried them all, but:
Mecho Wars was good and pretty straight forward, but does not have many features or unit types.
Uniwars seems to be very impressive, smooth and it has lots of modes. 3 races and online rankings.
I was not very happy with War 3100. It seemed unintuitive and hard to control. But I gave up playing that after the 4th mission.
I can't comment too much on the others, I've only tried a few of them.
Anyone care to rate these with respect to each other?
