Age of Empires?

Are there any Age of Empires type games in the app store or in development? I would love to play this game on my iPhone... Is there any chance that this game will be made?

I'd love to see a game like AoE too but I fear the iPhone/iPod touch might suffer in the memory dept. for such a game (but I could be wrong). I guess it depends on the size of the map, amount of units allowed, players, etc.

Well, considering MS closed down the studio(Ensemble) that made this game after they finished Halo Wars I think it's kinda inconsequential. I'm sure some other company could port the game. But I think something "like it" would be good enough.

You can't compare WI with AoE. I would love to have the DS version of AoE on the iPhone. It was a perfect game with a little encyclopedia included. WI i a good C&C clone, but AoE has a very different setting and overall feeling.

I currently use 7 Cities to fill my need for a medieval strategy game.

Or the Windows-Mobile-Version, which is still the best game on this platform. So it would be possible to come up with a good version, but I doubt they will do it.

Me too. I like the DS version more than the PC/Mac versions. Less "crap! they're invading and I forgot to spawn some cavalry!" ...yeah, I'm not brilliant at strategy games...
