TBS: Not sure

RTS for Real Time Strategy: Knight Defense

Lol ok this requires a bit of explanation. After a hectic play of a level I beat I couldn't resist quote this great fun strategy game with many action elements (real time). If I played first levels a bit more like a dynamic TD, as levels difficulty progressed I play it more and more like a dirty fighting game. I know it's not what expect OP.

Mecho wars is the closest thing to Advance Wars (the best tbs ever, in my opinion. I really wouldn't know. It's the only non-iPhone tbs I've played.) and it's a good amount of fun. And it's only a dollar.

Battle for Wesnoth is... I really don't know. I was never able to really get into it.

Galcon is an amazing pick-up-and-play RTS.

Red Conquest is good, if a bit shallow. I'd recommend it if you don't have much RTS experience.

Land Air Sea Warfare is pure win. The randomly generated maps, the great amount of units, buildings, and strategic choices to make, and the great controls make it my favorite strategy game on the iDevice.

I think you've had your hand at the best ones, OP. Red Conquest and Settlers are my favorites. I'm sure there's more out there, but iTunes is so inhibiting when it comes to searching and finding apps. We shouldn't have to rely on review websites; there should be categories with subcategories after subcategories.
