Metalwars 2

The only other mech combat game that I felt was worthy of a recommendation. It's basically a 2 on 2/3 mech combat arena. Similar to AC's Nine or Formula Front (PSP).

A pretty good buy with comfortable and fun combat mechanics that's slower paced than AC in general (no boosters...). Replay value is lacking though, since customization is quite linear and simplified. Stages are also limited in that there are only a few different arenas and the opponents you face are never 'unique', leading to pretty similar encounters and stages.

Fun, while it lasts. Multiple difficulties are available though.

The Heavy Mach games (including Mach Defense) and Robokill are really good.

Dodonpachi Resurrection is full of mechs, but it's a top-down bullet hell shooter.

Waiting for: Chaos Rings II, Phoenix Wright 123
I will always love: Kairosoft and CAVE Co. Ltd., Capcom, Godzilab, Simogo

Dodonpachi is no longer my favorite iOS game.

I liked Heavy Mach 2 and 2360: Battle for Cydonia

Would kill for a proper MechWarrior game on iOS, but even the DS game was so-so.

Guess I can console myself with the fact I can run the original MW on iDOS.

This isn't really a Mechwarrior type of game, rather more of a Space Harrier type shooter. But it HAS mechs in it, and it's awesome:

Destroy Gunners SP [Touch Arcade thread link]; at $8.99 I haven't played it yet but it looks awesome.

There's a lite trial version on App Store here.

Heavy Mach 2/HD is a solid choice.
