    So I'm new to the Android gaming (other than via emulators) and I was wondering if anyone can recommend some real-time strategy or turn based strategy games that are of the same ilk as Warcraft I/II, Age of Empires, Heroes of Might and Magic, etc.

    I've got a few RPGs I've been playing around with (LOVE dungeon hunter), and I'd like to find a few (or at least one) fun strategy games. Thanks in advance.

    Pocket Empires is pretty good.

    Would love a really good RTS. There is one out there, forget the name, but it costs money and there's no demo, so I never bothered.

    If you can remember the name, I'd give it a try. If it's on the market, we get the 24 hour return policy.

    I was actually going to check out "The Settlers" but it got horrific reviews and it looks like it's abandonware at this point.

    Interesting. Looks like it has some bugs with Evo/Incredible, sadly. Also hasn't been updated since last year :(

    I haven't played it, but Pocket Empires reminds me of one of those farmville-esque facebook games the way they market themselves. Is that not the case? If it's worth playing I'll give it a go.

    In Pocket Empires You do have to build your army and city but it's free. Just update things and check back in later. The attack other players feature is coming out soon. If you try it use this referal code "5ywgo", it'll give us both some extra gems to buy stuff.

    Will do.

    Any other games out there?

    I'm a bit surprised there aren't more, but Android gaming is still in its infancy.

    Anything Populous or Civilization-like?

    Found one that's not bad. Art of War 2. The resolution is designed for a smaller device so it wasn't beautiful, but the game is pretty entertaining. Still looking....

    Hopefully if the guy hurries up with the PSX emulator we can play some of the old C&C and Warzone 2100 games on it :p

    Now sure how well that will work though hah

    Oh man. Once this is up and running, I'll be playing final fantasy 7 non stop. I do miss C&C though.

    I see Pocket Empires (1.3.3) and Pocket Empires Online (1.3.4) in the Marketplace. Is there a difference, or are they the same game?

    Maybe we should petition Gameloft to give us NOVA wars, seeing as that game couldn't be any more Halo if it tried. ( still a good game though )

    Gameloft really is an oddball company. They make ripoffs and license based games which historically has been a recipe for horribleness, but the games are actually decent.

    I struggle to find any decent strategy game for android :(
    Why no developer wants to make one?
    There are so many in the app store for iPhone and iPad :(
    I miss my winmob 6.1 :( Had much better capabilities and I could play AOE :(
