I'm not talking about FarmVille, We City, or all the other IAP-driven crap that comes up when you actually search the App Store for "city builders". I mean two types: mostly the Impressions-style and/or Anno-style city builders, a cross beween economic sims and god games; and also the real-time Nile Online-type long-term strategy multiplayer games.

I have the Settlers, and SimCity (though I'm not a huge fan of that series, oddly) and just grabbed the latest Kairosoft yesterday. Any other ideas?

The Tribez might scratch your itch for a while, but it's a little on the light side and not great for replayability.  Still, I thought it was enjoyable enough to finish.

There's always Civilization Revolution, but you probably already know about that.

Neither is exactly what you're looking for, I know, but I really don't think there's much else out there.  Hope someone else can recommend more than I did, because I'd also love something more in this genre.

Yes, CivRev of course too, thanks.

I'm a bit amazed that there doesn't appear to be a steady supply of real strategy (not board; not tap-tap; not themed-match-three) games, but then I guess I'm sitting here complaining instead of writing my own, so.

My favourite part of those games is the tetris-like metagame of designing a city grid that is ruthlessly efficient and cosmetically attractive. You know, I should damn well make my own.

I've been absolutely loving the new Kairosoft.  What a totally addictive little game.

Majesty is pretty good, although a bit too puzzle-y for my tastes.

I was like 'OMG, I forgot about CivRev coming out for the iOS' then ran to iTunes to buy it and saw the recent reviews mentioning the recent update put banner ads into it  disgust
