Pixel-like games for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch

Hi all. First post here. I was browsing the forum for a day or so and couldn't find a thread where these types of games were discussed. Please forgive me if I overlooked it. I was wondering if anyone knew of any pixel like games available for IOS devices? The games that look like Game Dev Story, Tiny Tower, Fix Pix by eBoy, Time Geeks, and the like?
After buying and playing Kairosoft's games, and Tiny Tower recently, I fell in love with the looks of the games as well as the game style (strategy and simulation). I did see some recommendations on the home page (tower defense, super worm, etc), but I was looking for more of simulation and strategy games. Anyone have any recommendations?
