A request to Glu

Hey people, I recently went through the new games in N-Gage on my Nokia N82 and here's what i found Age of Empires III! being the RTS Junkie that i am i immediately downloaded it and boy o boy it's a blast. Best N-Gage game I ever had. Since Glu has made it's way into the Appstore here's a sincere request from an age old AOE fan. Please port it onto the iPhone. We still don't have any decent RTS game (apart from Warfare inc.) and i'm getting sick of those time management games. Hope this makes it's way into their offices




PS: I would happily pay $10 for AOE

Currently Playing: N.O.V.A, Skater Nation, 33rd Division, 7 Cities, Karnival.
Looking Forward to: GTA: Chinatown Wars, Ravensword (update), 1112 ep 02 and yeah the hangover on 1st

Don't tell them you would pay 10 dollars for it, because then that's what they'll charge.

Well, they have to take in the fact that all the customurs that will buy this.
Not just about 1 person and 10 lousy bucks...... More like 1000's of people and 1000's of dollars.

I have AOE for my cell phone (RAZR2), and it's quite playable, believe it or not.
So I think RTS is definately doable on the idevice.

EA is supposedly bringing Command & Conquer to the App Store, which should be awesome. I can't wait for that.

why is there no good RTS for the iPhone!?! haha don't tell me warfare inc, that's the same game i played like 4 years ago on my Palm!

When i had my BB, i had AOE1 and it worked fine, i don't understand why this isn't the perfect device for RTS.

That's why we can't have nice things coz of cheapos like you. Ten dollars is nothing for a solid experience. If you want cheap games, go and buy the tens of thousands of crapware on the iPhone.

I'll pay 10 bucks for it in a heartbeat. Get to it GLU!

Agreed, I forgot about Westward, it was great and kept me interested till the end..

i'm kind of sick of all the futuristic games out there (though i would settle for Starcraft omg) so i'd like to see more historic RTS, maybe like Rome:Total War?


PLEASE?
