Civilization like Games...

I've searched the Forums, but couldn't find anything about this Topic except for older 'What Games would you like to see...' (etc.) Threads.

So, are there any Civilization/Colonization/Alpha Centauri like Games out yet (or already announced)?

Also, are there any turn based Strategy Games like Panzer General/Fantasy General (etc.) out yet? (I'm not talking about Risk Clones here, but real Strategy Titles...)

I'm not sure about that one, the description states that it is RTS-like and that is not what i'm looking for. Waiting on a Lite-Version of the game first...

But thx, anyways

Can't post link because im on my iTouch. But type 'westward online' into google and you will be able to play it to try it I played it but it was kind of boring, will probably buy iTouch version as it has good reviews though.

Well, Reign of Swords is of course a turn based strategy game - and a good one:

There is also a free version of the game, so you can try it:

I really wish they would port or remake Settlers for the iPhone... that to me is the best "civilization" micro management war game.. my favourite was Settlers 2, didn't like the new offerings.

I don't know what the heck developers are waiting for.. the iphone is a fantastic platform for any RTS or strategy game.. i'd pay $20 for a good strategy game. there is nothing out right now that comes close


It looks like i'll probably be getting Westward next... i'm having fun playing the online version @ http://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/westward.jsp

They made Settlers 6 alright. Gameloft brought Settlers to mobile phones, maybe they will to iTouch!
