Any good Escape Velocity type games?

I am wondering if this is a game genre that is untapped (no pun intended) with the iphone/ipod touch.

I love EV Nova / Escape Velocity games. I was wondering if there are any good similar games available now? Where you trade, have upgrades, and you make your own path.

they have a few games available for the touch/iphone, but none of the ones that got them popular. I would love to play EV Nova on my iphone.

There are parts of Escape Velocity we are using in Roads of Ruin, but we are not looking to make that exact type game.

However, if you play the new Puzzle Quest Galatrix demo for PC, you can see it has a lot of Escape Velocity in it, just with jewel matching instead of real time combat.

I've made a lot of games. You've played them.

Roads of Ruin sounds great! Do you have any screen shots? when will it be released?

I used to play EV on the comp a looonggg time ago and the only iphone game has reminded me the most of it is Void. As of now, there is only a lite version of it available.

No trading, but real time combat with an upgrade system. I'd definitely recommend it to EV fans.

why doesnt ambrosia just port this? it would run well. Hell, they could even port Avera and we could be playing multiplayer with it.

This isn't Slide to play forums where you just post whatever you want wherever you want. This forum section is called Iphone and Ipod Touch Games for a reason, and there is a reason that Touch Arcade has a specific section called General Game discussions.

Please stop posting threads where they don't belong.

Use A if the next word begins with a consonant sound.
Use An if the next word begins with a vowel sound.
