For all you side-scrolling real-time strategy castle defense fans...

Ok so... Here's the deal. One of my favorite genres on the idevice is the side scrolling rts-cd... I've played most if not all of the greats... Trenches crystal wars battle of puppets, more I can't think of right now....

I just recently got epic war 3, and LOVED IT.... The thing that got me hooked on this one is the way your dudes automatically spawn, leaving you to think more about strategy and in what order to send your troops....

So... My question becomes this.... Anyone happen to know of another ss rts cd game that has your troops spawning on their own... (and btw if u haven't played epic war 3 and am not sure what I mean... I think there may be a flash version of it somewhere...)

Thanks in advance for the recommendations

Had to reply to this. You will love Legendary wars.

heres a few quotes:

this game is the new standard for any future Castle Attack/Defense game. Truly Legendary! 5 Stars. A game that is truly legendary.

egendary Wars has a fantastic look to it-- every character is sharply detailed and well-animated. Plus, the game has a fun sense of humor. This is the very first iPhone game from Liv Games, and we're impressed by its quality!

Already submitted to apple so were excited to see it coming very soon

After watching some vids and such, castle conflict doesn't fit what I'm looking for.... Yes it's a ss-rts-cd game... Bt I'm not just looking for one... I'M lookin for one where yer troops are spawned automatically... In epic war your troops spawn on their own, and you choose who to send forward or hang back or what....

But castle conflict does look fun... Don't get me wrong... I'm just lookin for something more specific

Dark Lords was a complete joke. I bet the developers didn't even test their own game properly before releasing it. There's about as much "strategy" and "thinking" in that game as eating an apple. I beat like the first 10 levels or so by repeatedly tapping the lower left corner of the screen, ie the basic soldier unit, overwhelming the enemy side in under a minute with a massive army, while the enemy was busy spending time creating expensive units.

Play trenches online for the time being while you wait for LW xD. It's a hell of a lot fun with other people, especially friends.
