Game similar to we rule?

Hello this is my first post... I'm relatively new to the itouch(long time blackberry user lol).

Anyway I'm pretty hooked on we rule and original gangstaz but the building of my own property in we rule is getting a little boring. Is there any games similar to we rule but have an added element of attacking neighboring castles/users?


Thx

Welcome. There's Astro Ranch, if you're interested, though it's very poor. Then, if you have a Facebook, you can download and play Farmville for free

Thanks for the quick reply.... Hmmm I guess I'm stuck where I am. I think a fusion of those two gameplay elements would be a big hit! I have so much gold in we rule it would be cool to attack friends/others in a risk type attack scheme to steal gold resources etc.

Farmville, Zombie Farm, and Astro Ranch (similar to Harvest Moon)

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

Surprised to see so few comments about Farm Story or the follow-up City Story. Not much depth, but the graphics are shiny and I like the social features better than the We* games.

On a separate note- tried Farmville on the iPhone. Graphics look dated and was really sluggish to play.

Playing: Overkill, Dungeon Raid, Puzzle Quest 2, Hunters HD

Although this is a cool idea I think the reason we don't see this kind of game is because the target audiences are so different. The casual farmville people aren't going to/can't devote the time to learning the best strategies for fighting and their farms would get quickly demolished by the people who did care. And the strategists are going to be bored waiting x hours for stuff to be harvested or they'll find a way to 'abuse' the system. Like when We Rule first came out and to stay remotely competitive with leveling you had to build a million tailor shops.

The risk-type element would have to be very simple and the game would have to err to the side of farming sim. Maybe in a Words with Friends kind of way so casuals can play when they feel like it and hardcore players can get more in depth with it. Just my 2 cents.
