Deep Strategy on iOS? e.g. Hearts of Iron

Does anything like this exist? If anyone is familiar with the PC series "Hearts of Iron", something like that. Basically any titles that involve a lot of micromanagement, large tech trees, and open-ended storylines.

Stuff like Game Dev Story is fun, but gets old fast once you play it a couple times. Wesnoth is OK, but still feels too structured for my liking. Any suggestions?

Check out Ascendancy which is a 4x space strategy game. It has 21 races you can play, large tech trees, and crazy depth.

I've tried quite a few hoping for the same I have a ton of games like civilization revolution, settlers, Rogue Planet, Land Air Sea Warfare, World in War none of them have really hit the mark I'd say the civilization game is the closest but it kind of plays like a kids version of the PC games.

I think I might start a fresh game of Arsenal of Democracy on my PC now I've read this I haven't played it for a while.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Try History: Egypt Engineering an Empire. Haven't played it myself, but it got good reviews and is being compared to Civilization. It's also on sale for $0.99.

Bump again.

Anything else out there?

Why oh why won't anyone make a good strategy game for iOS? I'm so sick of the endless waves of crap that keep being shoveled into the app store.

Help!!

I'd pay $30 just for a port of an old PC classic.

I really need some deep strategy games on my iPhone. I'd pay $10 or $15 for a really good one, as I paid for Final Fantasy Tactics (and FFT was not a very good port)
