No, Jason, seriously. Do you have any suggestions?  :2funny:

Star Command is a fun little game with minor RPG elements set in space. I have it on my iPad.

The Tiller stuff holds up fairly well.

What Tiller games have you tried on iPad? I was stunned that you can't even check possible destinations before moving your units because they didn't optimize memory usage on the platform for the necessary algorithms. Has that been an issue for you? It was a game breaker for me.
Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Just the Civil War one. I agree that the interface isn't really good but from what I've played on the PC neither is it. But having said that, playing on the PC is certainly the better option.

Pike and Shot
Exactly like the PC version (well minus the Campaigns).
Can't go wrong with skirmish and the community scenarios / mods which also is usable on the mobile device.
