Best real-time strategy game

Hello everyone,

Recently a friend invited me to play Clash of Clans and I quickly got fed up with it. Itís more a tower defense game than a real-time strategy game and the freemium garbage makes it completely frustrating.

I loved games like Age of Empires, StarCraft or Warcraft (no DotA) and Iím looking for the closest thing to those games for both the iPhone and Android. I have an iPhone 5 and my friend has a Samsung Galaxy S4, it would be great to play some multiplayer online matches.

I know that PC gaming is better suited for what Iím describing, but there are lots of moments in which we donít have a PC nearby but we certainly could enjoy something like this.

Hopefully somebody can point us in the right direction.

Regards

John

Sadly, Starfront: Collision doesn't appear on the Google Play Store and on the Gameloft website, the list of compatible smartphone models doesn't include the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom.

I'm sorry, I'm new to the forums... Which section would have been correct? Can I still move the thread?

Autumn Dynasty is fantastic, but if you want a more modern setting, Machines At War 3 is also great. I don't know if they are cross platform, though.

Can someone confirm if online multiplayer with one player using an iPhone and another using Android is available in Autumn Dinasty?

Also, regarding Autumn Dynasty, there are several reviews talking about an error when trying to play multiplayer that says "GAME NOT UPDATED"... can anyone confirm that the online multiplayer part of Autumn Dynasty is up and running?

It seem that Machines at War 3 is not available for Android.
Can someone confirm a version for Android? Or better yet... can someone confirm that Machines at War 3 can be played with online multiplayer between an iPhone and an Android phone?

Sorry... Autumn Dynasty matches through GC, so I'm guessing that's a no right there...

Machines At War 3 is for Mac, PC and iOS, no android, but it does have cross platform MP

I definitely recommend Autumn Dynasty, but you're not going to get cross platform multiplayer with it.

I've been looking for some mobile RTS's myself with little luck. There is a 3D RTS on Android called ProjectY RTS. It's still in Beta I believe but it looks promising. The Stormfront (Tropical Stormfront, etc.) series is also sort of what you're looking for.
