    Hi, friends. Since I bought my 16gb Touch, I've been dreaming about being able to play real time strategy games on it. Now that EA has jumped on the iPhone/Touch bandwagon, and since they own the rights to the Command and Conquer, it doesn't seem so far fetched to have those games on the Ipod touch. I'd pay GOOD money for the ability to play C&C on the go, and I'm damned sure I'm not alone.

    I've been waiting for a worthwhile RTS on the DS for years now. Maybe the Touch would be an even better platform for the genre. What do you guys think?

    On the same note, is there any homebrew RTS game in the works?

    Advance Wars isn't an RTS, however.

    But you need to use the virtual buttons. It totally defeats the purpose of having an RTS on the Touch

    I might as well just play it on my PSP, then (it has a better working PS1 emulator, plus real buttons > virtual buttons any day of the week IMO)

    Just wait until June, my friend. You will have a wide selection of games, most likely including an RTS in there somewhere. However, you'll probably have to pay a pretty penny for a game created by a company such as EA or Sega.

    Or even Warcraft III. They could use these controls: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEax1mJhJQ0

    Travian @ www.travian.com

    Web based, free MMO RTS game. There's even whole clans of iPhone players on it (look up =EIC= for one). Plays perfectly on Safari on the iPhone, even over Edge.

    Did I mention it's free and doesn't require you to jailbreak?
