Best RTS game on iPhone

Please suggest me some good RTS games for the iPhone. I liked 'Autumn Dynasty', but that is available for iPad only. I like kind of medieval themed games. But suggest from any other category if there are better.

Hmmm, I can't think of a medieval themed one. When I think of the best RTS games for iOS, these are the two that come immediately to mind:

Land, Air, Sea, Warfare: http://appshopper.com/games/land-air-sea-warfare
Starfront - Collision: http://appshopper.com/games/starfront-collision-2

Both have separate iPhone and iPad versions.

SSquared has 'em right on. To be fair, though, there are two others: Autumn Dynasty which is iPad only but an excellent game, and The Settlers, a complex full port of on of the PC games. It's set in the ancient times but has more city management. Separate iPhone and iPad versions.

Add Red Conquest; and you have the only RTS games you need.

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

Good call. I was thinking of mentioning The Settlers, too. I meant to look up Robocolypse to see if it was still around. I bought that years ago and was wondering if it was even still available. That was pretty fun. A good early RTS game on iOS.

I couldn't remember the name when I posted earlier, but there is also Warfare Inc.

I guess this is the most under represented category in the iOS games. Hope the devs of the Autumn Dynasty will eventually port it to the iPhone. Thanks for the suggestions.

Wait about a week or two, and the iphone will have one of the best RTS games..........Kingdom Rush.

Yes it is a tower defence game, but has many RTS elements, a wide variesty of troops, heros, etc

Sorry to bump an old thread... but have any new RTS games for iPhone come out since? Or have any of the games listed above apart from Kingdom Rush been updated for retina and iPhone 5 screen.

I wish Red Alert would get an update or a new version came out?
