Bump. I'm a big time, old school strategy fan. My tastes range from Civ to HoI to Spaceward Ho!, SMAC and X-Com. Saw Ascendancy recommended here multiple times so will check that out tonight!

I just think iOS is not the platform for deep games: unfortunately we mostly find casual games for mass market
I'd also be interested if someone had suggestions, I had been a fan of so many strategy games on PC.

"European War 2" and "World Conquerer 1945" should be right up your alley.

It's been 2 years -- anything new, guys?

Maybe a good business sim, too? Or a sandbox city builder? Maybe a remake of the original Railroad Tycoon?

Hopefully kairosoft isn't still the best available.

What a sad state of affairs. Still, Starbase Orion is solid as are numerous board game ports, there's Transport Tycoon and Legion... plus the Slitherine stuff.

Just stumbled on this thread.
I second Autumn Dynasty, X-COM, Ascendancy, and Starbase Orion.
More down the tactics alley, but I highly recommend the two Ravenmark games.
And for a whole different kind of beast with longterm strategy and incredibly deep gameplay, give King of Dragonpass a try.
Uhr:Warlords is interesting as well, a bit like fantasy chess with more - and interesting - moves/options.
For a tactical/strategic thinking boardgame, Elder Sign:Omens .
And that's pretty much it, unfortunately...
