Warfare 1917 ?

Are there any games out there on the touch/iphone app store that are similar to

Warfare 1917?

for an example : http://armorgames.com/play/2267/warfare-1917

yeah, fieldrunners, as good as it is, is a tower defense

this is more, like a warlords style game
or a reverse fieldrunners, as in you can deploy units to breach their defenses, rather then just defending

i like how you can gain ground/territory and have to think on your feet quickly to counter what your enemy is deploying
and warfare 1917 has amazing trench warfare strategies

i would most likely buy this, or a similar styled game on zi touch

This would rock on the iPhone!
We have way too little strategy games on this platform.

Fieldrunners is good anyways.

What about that other Warfare game in the top 100? I haven't played it but isn't that similar?

Well, I just spent roughly an hour with it from the flash link you provided.

I think this would be a perfect iphone game. Fun, stategic, simple and controls shouldn't be that hard to implement. All you really do is scroll from left to right, so it would be easy to just 'swipe' left and right ya know.

I hope someone ports this game or makes something similar.

Great game.

Ok, I just wasted too much time on that game. That is great, and if done correctly, a high segment game.
