Also Highborn is fairly simple, but nicely done.

Crystal War is amazing and pretty challenging (definitely not casual like many Idevice games). There are also two campaigns for humans and orcs. Think of it as a 2 d Warcraft because it is a tts game with resource gathering and all just 2d. There is also the battle of puppets which I also heard is awesome and similar but haven't got into much yet due to how hard crystal war is to beat. Also stick wars 1 and 2 look intriguing and I got galcon fusion as well which I heard rocks. Oh and Settlers HD rocks.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Another good one I found is Land Air Sea Warfare HD. It's a really good RTS.

But I heard it doesn't even have online play or a freaking campaign!!! Those are mandatory in any tts game IMO. Without a campaign it's only an engine not a game. Anyway I recently got warfare Inc which in all reviews including pocket gamer it won awards or high scores and has both a campaign and custom scenarios and online play too I believe.

Strategery is oddly addictive (for me). It's a stripped down, no frills or distractions Risk-like game. Give it a try.

Modern Conflict HD is pretty good. Sometimes it can be a bit frustrating when the AI magically gets reinforcements, but overall it's definitely worth playing.
