I'm getting my hands on a new iPAQ tomorrow (having to work for a living does have a few advantages ). Does anyone know if there are any "proper" wargames in this format ? The only one I've found for handhelds at all is a Strategic Command clone for palm OS only.

I've found a few demos of strategy games to try, but no wargames - the nearest seems to be something called "Pocket War".

Anybody know of anything ?

Warring Nations
Turn-based strategy, where the action takes place in the Medieval World - a time of Noble Lords and Great Battles!

-50% OFF, NOW $7.47


Its not the best but its one of the better I found on PPC

www.clickgammer.com


Now if Matrix could make some PPC games, that also work on phones that would be a gold mine!

Also if you like SciFI, check out www.baen.com they have a huge set of free ebooks and then sell sets of 5-6 for 12-15 each, which with books costing 5-7 dollars these days is a great price.

If you send me your email, I'll add you to my list a Baen, you will get a few free books when I order my next set.

Here´s the direct link to Warring Nations:

http://www.clickgamer.com/moreinfo.htm?pid=254

It´s pretty nice.


Also:

That´s what is up on clickgamer.com for "strategy"



I formyself play the old Lucas Arts adventures on my Axim X30

Why, do you have shares ? Looked a very useful utility anyway, so I bought it.

Thanks for that, folks. After trying some demos I bought Warring Nations and Warlords 2, as both were on that 48 hour half-price sale Larac mentioned. Sadly Pocket War wasn't, so that can wait a while. Grabbed Warring States as well.

I'll pass on the sci-fi, thanks anyway. It's very rare I read any fiction at all these days - too much non-fiction to catch up on.
