Sigh. First of all, the best RTS period is LASW. With over hundred units and technologies, glass smooth framerate, great controls, it is the best RTS. 2nd, post this in the mass what should I get thread. THat's where you put all the what should I get? questions.

most unknown good game: peril canyon. Most known bad game: NFL

But it is a specific genre. Not a I have 10 bucks and own a iPhone. Give me suggestions.

LASW is the best, but some others include Robacolypse & Lost Empires. A simple arcadey one is Trenches.

I play Warfare Incorporated. It's only $.99, has a single player campaign and has the option to download a ton of user made singleplayer and multiplayer maps. Apparently this is a game that has a pretty dedicated community dating back to older smartphones/PDA's (I believe it was on Palm OS and/or Windows Mobile) so there are hundreds of maps to download. I believe maps are still being made.

By no means should this replace some of the other suggestions, but for a dollar, it can't hurt to give it a shot.

Currently Playing: Plants vs. Zombies, The War of Eustrath, Zenonia 1, Phoenix Wright, The Quest

My personal favorite is Robocalypse. Nothing would make me happier than to have a decent AoE port or clone on my iPhone

Red conquest! Is one of the best. It has a campaign, challenge missions, skirmish with up to 7 AI, online play with wifi, edge, and 3g. It also has three distinct factions great graphics, zoom, controls take a bit getting used to but they are great once you do. This game was made specially for the iPhone and not a port. It's 1.99.

Land Air Sea Warfare. If you're coming from the PC and want an RTS like the ones found there LASW is the way to go, most other RTSes on the iPhone are simplified for the platform.
