Uniwar is a great turn based strategy game with online multiplayer. Pretty big community-I would say at least 1000 active players still.

I've considered Uniwar before. The online multiplayer looks compelling. No iPad version? No thanks.

Don't know if other gamers do this, but I'm starting to avoid devs/publishers that don't update often.

Uniwar, for instance. Let's say I brushed aside my HD bias and get the game knowing full well it would look ok pixel doubled. The game hasn't been updated since May 20. I'm already experiencing issues with iOS games not having audio.

Not knocking the game or your recommendation, I'm just getting a lot pickier before dropping money on games.

Hmm, that's true.
However, the devs said on uniwar.com that they'll be releasing an HD version soon, with new features and it'll also be universal.
Maybe you can consider the app then

The HD screens look good! Ranked ladder play, user-generated maps... dang, looks like I'll be dropping another $5 when this comes out.

On their forum a mod said end of October for the newest update, but I'm not sure if that update includes the HD version or not.

Highborn hd
Neo nectaris (iphone version, based on awesome tg-16 game)
Mecho wars- (hd version on the way, but plays good in 2x)

Great suggestions so far. However, I would add Everlands HD, Conquist 2 (for Risk-like), Tactical Soldier, and Greed Corporation.

I'm surprised nobody talked about "Z - The Game" (Universal). Great game from 1996 ported to iOS. The difficulty is quite high though.

See http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/z-the-game/id418354265?mt=8

Aquaria! I have to really strategize and plan my schedule ahead to make time to play this epic game!

>.>


My favourite strategy game on the ipad would be The War of Eustrath[Turn based]!

Companions[Real Time] is rather good too, but the controls can make things a little frustrating.

I have tried Civilization Revolution... but it just isn't fun playing with mentally challenged AIs.

Personally I have these games that I return to:

- Neuroshima Hex
- Carcassonne
- New World Colony
- Strategery (although its too easy to win even on hardest setting)

Honorary mentions go to
- GLWG
- Rimelands
- Weird Worlds
- Galcon

Enjoyed those, but dont really play them anymore

New entries that I've not yet decided totally if they are keepers or not
- Elder Sign (too random for me - but fantastic theme wise)
- SpaceChem
- Ghost Stories

Also tried some of the more "grand strategy" games like European War 2, but they dont connect with me after a while playing.

Most of the games I would recomend have already been mentioned e.g Highborn HD, GLWG etc. I would also recomend Zombie Rescue...Grafically it might not appeal to some, but the game play is pretty cool! For me, it's a hidden gem!
