Any word on if Dice Wars is coming?

This is a classic Flash game that would make a sweet little port to an iApp and work great with the touchscreen interface:

It would be cool to see Dice Wars! Although in the mean time, Strategery is very similar... It's still on my phone and gets played a lot more than some flashy titles

Wishlist: Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers, Monkey Island, Sam & Max, Swords & Soldiers, Tyrian
Playing: Kryzer Prologue, Flight Control, Knights Onrush

I'm just going to second what romulus said. I've been a huge fan of Dice Wars for years and Strategery really is basically the same game with some extra customization options. Highly recommended. I see no urgent need for an "official" Dice Wars game.

It's Here!

You're in luck. Check out KDice Trainer. New to the App Store. It's a great little port of Dice Wars. Looks just like the original. $3.99. Grab it TODAY!

Right now KDice Trainer is on sale for 99 cents, which should make it even more appealing if you need a Dice Wars fix. I'll probably try it out myself when I get the chance. Of course, I will add my +1 to Strategery as well. The game is polish, has some cool options, and doesn't take long per individual game.
