Definitely Epoch while it's free.


Also some free offerings (I'm not vouching for all of these since I haven't played them all, but they are at least decent):

Frisbee® Forever
The Sandbox
Subway Surfers
Bullet Time HD

Looking for a good RTS. Got C&C Red Alert, and though I enjoyed a lot of what the game had to offer, it only had one difficulty setting: brutal.

Gameloft's Starcraft clone, on the other hand, looks great, but I'd like to stay away from such a mammoth file size.

Warfare Inc is pretty fun. Extremely small file size (less than 20 MB) and has micro/macro like Starcraft. Also has online multiplayer, which is still somewhat active, even though the app was published in '09.
Battleheart is great too, but it's just purely micro. Pretty large file size if I remember correctly, like a few hundred MB.

I'd pick up Land Air Sea Warfare. It's more AoE than Starcraft.

(It's also 19 MB)

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

How's Sword of Fargoal? Is it better than 100 Rogues? Also how much replayability does it have?

Red Conquest is still the best the iOS has to offer if you don't have an iPad in terms of RTS games. If you do, get Autumn Dynasty.

It's really good, go pick it up. They're working on a 2nd game as I speak... (er type)

Get Star Marine: Infinite Ammo. It's the closet thing to Contra on the AppStore (that I know of)
