    I just got an iPhone 5s after having a work issued blackberry for years. So now I'm considering the possibilities of mobile games that I had never given much thought to before. In general are there any iOS games anyone strongly recommends? I know ace patrol is available and I did a final fantasy search and found a ton of those but they are pricey.

    Bard's Tale, Ridiculous Fishing, Game Dev Story (not a lot to it, but its fun for a while), Catan, Carcassone, Condado (fan make of Puerto Rico, and its free), other boardgames, and possible a bunch of others I have gotten in a couple of Humble Bundles. I also highly recommend installing Amazon's Appstore because they have a free app every day, usually its crap but once in a while they put up a good game like Carcassone.

    I assume those are all available for iOS, I have an Android, because its cheaper and mostly better.

    Yeah I don't think humble bundles give ios versions, I've got ace patrol for steam. I'll check out king of dragon pass.

    I actually have great big war game off steam and will probably get the ios version of that. It's sorta like advance wars I guess (I never played advance wars), very fun, I think it would work well on mobile.

    I've bought and tried some games for iphone that supposedly are good, but I can't get into them. Gamingwise, handhelds just seem subpar. There's obviously a market for this, but for me it's not a compelling experience.

    I'll wait to hear what you think of it.

    Games I've played:
    Tiny Wings
    Spelltower
    Little Things
    + some free games I can't remember

    I got a $30 itunes card for my birthday so ohhh man, got lots of decisions to make now! I saw chrono trigger is in the app store! But it has terrible reviews because the controls and resolution suck apparently. But there's also final fantasy 5, 6 and tactics! AHH! And a zelda windwaker knockoff! And a civ rev type game! too many choices.

    I got an Android phone. Does everyone else have Iphone? Hehe
    :D

    I like strategy games the most. Games I am playing or have played recently that I recommend if you like strategy.


    Populus Romanus 2: Brit. FREE
    I play as the Romans invading Britain around 50 AD. Maybe I will buy the full version. Haven't decided yet.

    Strategy Rome in Flames FREE
    Playing as Anglo-saxons invading Britain in around 400 AD. It's a challenge to play. Good AI. I also like the music and sounds in it. Maybe I will buy the full version.

    Slay
    This one costs money. It's really fun but simple to play. Good for playing on a mobile phone which doesn't have a big screen.

    Bumping this thread to talk about Clash of Clans.

    I'm hooked on it. I initially started playing because my friend's kid's clan needed more members. But the game sucked me in.

    I like the fact that you don't have to spend hours a day playing it to be any good. There is a lot to learn, but you don't have to in order to enjoy yourself (similar to the civ games in that respect).

    We just did our first clan war and now I want to join a bigger clan to learn faster. Anyone else play? Anyone up for a CFC clan?

    Come join our clan Peter. We are canned inferno. It is a very nice international group. Many of us have been together for over a year. My user name is Audrey (the 11 year old who stopped playing lol).
