Default Advance Wars Iphone?

Hey guys,

is there any kind of game which is identical to Advance Wars for the DS? Like multiplayer on 1 Iphone device? I was considering Rogue Planet, but it only has multiplayer for Iphone's more than 1. So... is there anything like what I described?

As of now, the only one I can think of that supports multiplayer on the same device is Transformers G1 (just released overnight)... and if you're not a fan of transformers there's nothing to fall back on.

At this point I don't think any game on the iPhone has captured the feel and spirit of Advance Wars. I've played UniWar, Mecho Wars, and Rogue Planet- all of which had some potential, but dropped the ball in one manner or another (I didn't mention Battle for Wesnoth here, have that as well, but it's a whole different league... not attempting to be an AW clone).

Later this spring (or early summer) my third iPhone game release will be much like Advance Wars as played on the GBA and DS, including the multiplayer "pass and play" on the same device. I've only got a rough outline and handful of spritework done so far because my second game is monopolizing my budget and programming time!

Expect to see details for this game start to emerge soon after the release of Secret Project #1

What about War3100 ( www.war3100.com )? IIRC, the developer of this game used to be on the boards here. Not sure if it has pass-n-play though.

Default Advanced Wars style TBSs

Ok - i've been doing a bit of research on Advance Wars type games.

There are a few threads on the same topic
(Cross posted this in each of these)

6178
46397 (this one)
82223
34790

From what I can gather there are quite a few games
(Prices are in NZ dollars - so drop them a bit for $US)

Uniwar $1.29
Mecho wars $1.29
Rogue Planet $6.49
Battle for Wesnoth $5.30
Battle Academy iPad only. $24.99
War of eustrath ipad only. $4.19 ($6.49 iPad)
Great little war game $2.99
Armament 2028 $2.59
War3100 0.99c
Transformers G1 Awakening $1.29
War Generation not available in New Zealand store?!
Agile Forces - in development

I'm sure there are more. reply with any others and I'll update this post.

I havent tried them all, but:
Mecho Wars was good and pretty straight forward, but does not have many features or unit types.
Uniwars seems to be very impressive, smooth and it has lots of modes. 3 races and online rankings.
I was not very happy with War 3100. It seemed unintuitive and hard to control. But I gave up playing that after the 4th mission.
I can't comment too much on the others, I've only tried a few of them.
Anyone care to rate these with respect to each other?

Cheers
Simon

Battle for Wesnoth has an absurd amount of content and has some very challenging game play. I didn't get too deep into it but I enjoyed it, the interface is a little clunky though. The other downside is the app hasnt been updated to the same version as the computer one so there isnt cross console multiplayer anymore. If you're looking for a game to spend hours on and get tons of content this is definitely a good one to look into.

Like people have said; UniWar is really close.
