Most in-depth/immersive games?

Hi all,

Relatively new to iphone gaming, so I'd like to have some recommendations from you experts! I'm going to be doing a lot of traveling soon, so I'd like to get some games with some meat to them. I tend to prefer strategy-type games (I have UniWars) already, but will gladly appreciate any suggestions for in-depth, long-play games. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

Real Racing and Vector Tanks I think are the two Ipod games which "fully immerse" me! I literally hold the screen as close as I can to my face to further the immersion, and with said titles I can only say...WOW!!

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Tradewinds 2 is addicting, was up late into the night not able to put it down. Also from what I hear, Chocolatier. Might pick that one up later.

RogueTouch is a great game, along with Defender Chronicles.

Tradewinds 2 and Chocolatier are great time and resource management strategy games. Both are very addicting and should keep you busy for a while.

Two games have sucked away hours of my life above all others, and start simple enough but have a lot of complexity to explore:

1. Defender Chronicles (ElementalMonster TD and 7 Cities are runners up--all three have some kind of RPG element)

2. Fantastic Contraption

Good lengthy games i recommend are:

- PuzzleQuest (where puzzle meets a very very in-depth RPG. very long and fun game with high replayability and so much you can do.)
- Real Racing (the best racing sim you can get...Beautiful graphics, High replayability and very lengthy gameplay)
- Star Defense (Great graphics and a very eye catching 3-D Tower Defense. pretty lengthy and good replayability)
- Baseball Superstars (Recommend even if your not a fan of baseball...Comical graphics, several game modes, a lot of unlockables, and a ton of replayability)
- Brothers in Arms (This game is solid. Military game like call of duty. My favorite 3rd person shooter to date on touch.)
- Peggle (Extremely addicting game)

All of these games have great replayability and are good diverse choices to start out with.

Depth? Something like Zenonia or PuzzleQuest I'm sure.

Immersive? DinoSmash online - hands down. I get completely lost in that game. Hours pass by, my phone dies... it's fantastic.

I'd recommend Slay, it has a lite version too.

Its a really good strategy game, and runs great on iDevices.

Rogue Touch is a great RPG and I recommend this one also !
