$9.99 on the Au appstore which for reasons that perplex me even to this day, translates to about 30 cents everywhere else.

Ps, I don't do rts these days (used to love it as a teenager), but if you're after some suggestions then I read that z steel soldiers is good. Also starfront collision but for some reason that's gone from the appstore. Was the closest thing to Starcraft on iOS.

Space Harvest It was either free or .99 ( this is one of my top favs for awhile.)

XCOM, FFT and Hearthstone are my personal TBS picks. Warhammer Quest was one of my favorite games for the longest time, til i just lost interest in it after a couple years. Ascension and Summoner Wars were huge favorites of mine until Hearthstone happened. :P

For realtime strategy titles, Dungeon Village, Castle Doombad, Crystal Siege, Battleheart and Heroes & Castles 2.

Exact-Psience My 2014 Top 10 Games of the Year: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Hearthstone, VVVVVV, Battleheart Legacy, Wayward Souls, Bug Heroes 2, Powerpuff Girls Defenders of Townsville, Deep Loot, Monument Valley, Bioshock Honorable Mentions: Traps N Gemstones, Bardbarian, Goblin Sword

I still keep Starfront Collision on all my devices (despite the sort of large filesize). I'm surprised it wasn't more popular or that more StarCraft clones never seemed to show up on the app store...
