Good kingdom game?

After a few days of playing We Rule, I feel like I've bumped up against the game's limitations. I don't care about the social aspects that much, don't like having no idea what buildings do, and most importantly don't like the fact that there's not much to actually do in the game. I used to be hardcore into Age of Empires and even Civilization, so I want to find something along those lines. And yes, I know there's a Civ game, but I find its interface to be rather poorly optimized for the iPhone.
So... any other games in this genre I should try?

(P.S. hi tA!)

The Settlers would be a good shout, and Sim City Deluxe is coming in the summer (can't wait for that!)

The Settlers, maybe? Can't say I've played the iPhone version, but it's one of my most played series on PC back in the day.

EDIT: ah, bluewomble88 - great minds think alike.

There's a new risk-like game out today: Medieval Heroes. That something for you?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Freeverse has a game called CastleCraft - MMOG - coming out at the start of April.

And there's a combat MMOG coming from a new developer that we can't talk about yet that will blow your socks off. They're a spin out of a well known PC MMOG studio. Due 3rd April...

I hate it when people are to lazy to even read the opening post.

I thought Civ Rev's interface was fine, the game just felt as if it was lacking in depth.

Here are some games you might like:
Command & Conquer
Rogue Planet (not that similar, but worth checking out)
The Settlers
Warfare Inc.

*Ahem* FAIL.

Excuse me, sir, but you are interrupting my boredom.
