flick fishing or snail mail like the guy above said.....

[EDIT] snail mail is kind of racing, but for strategy id go with a tower defense game....like 7 cities, or field runners (both a little over $3, or creeps its a dollar for now....then again you could just go to the strategy section on the appstore....lol

You could look at The Creeps! It's a fun tower defense style game.

Also, Tiki Towers is a fun puzzle game with a simple concept but it can get rather hard.

Fantastic Contraption is also a great puzzle game, not necessarily "strategical" though.

If you're willing to spring for $5, Galcon is easily the most played app on my iPod and the online play is incredible. If you don't have access to wifi or anything though, I wouldn't recommend it.

I would advise you looking through some threads on this forum and seeing what strikes your interest. You could check back with us in this thread after looking at some other threads if you have any questions.

Well, here's some good strategy-ish games to take a look at:
  • Galcon
  • Lux Touch
  • Orions: Legend of Wizards

if you have an extra buck go for Pocket God, great quick game with active devs and a fun stress reliever.

on another note try the galcon lite version to see if you like that kinda game and lux touch is free and very much like a risk style game

I also recommend iShoot, if you've ever played tanks on the computer it is like that
