Seems like you all forgot the oldest version of this concept(because weewar is build on the same concept like the other older, but it's/was unique because you could play it on browser + ajax)
As I heard the oldest game with the concept is:
This concept often inherits:
Progress Window between a fight of two Units,
Only one ressource which can optain often only from bases

|Does anybody play Steel Panthers? This is a classic turn-based tactics game on the computer that includes Steel Panthers:World at War, Steel Panthers 2, and Steel Panthers Main Battle Tanks. It a tactical game with hexes and looking top-down at units and is usually based in World War 2. It's a really fun game and you can play up to 12 nations I think from 1933-1945 (or modern). Each nation, like Nazi Germany for instance, has it's own unique units and is historically accurate. For example, they have Pz I, Pz II, PzIII, Pz IV, Tiger, StuG III, GE(German) Panzergrenadier, GE Panzershreck team, 150mm Guns, GE Mortar Team, etc. It's a really great game and also still has a devoted fan made website: http://www.spwaw.com/phpBB2/index.php . The best part is that it's FREE!!!!!!! You can also play against the AI and other players through PBEM.|

Well actually there is whole kind of games that are quite similar. They are also turn based games but they're not limited to 2, 4 or 6 players.
I'm talking about pbems. I know, those are quite old, but they are strategy games after all. They don't have the visuals of these days, but you get more diplomacy and lots of opponents.
We're relaunching an old pbem, that became open source recently. Open source means free, of course. We're hosting it as a tribute to the community.
It might be interesting for you for having a look at the game mechanics, or just to have some fun with that old jewel.
In short, it's a pbem, which means it doesn't have the awesome graphics of weewar though. I have to admit that.
The turns are in txt format.
A turn looks like this : http://olympia.v-labs.be/g3/node/400
On the other hand, you play it with 150 other players in a free for all, which leads to interesting diplomatic exchanges.
150 is not that much, so you still make a difference with your alliance/group (compared to the clicky webgames like Tribal wars).
Turns are run once a week, to permit everyone to send in their orders and to process all 150 orders at once. You don't have to stay before your PC all the time, you can make your orders offline whenever you want and then send them in.
No client is necessary to install, so you can play it by mail and follow everything by smartphone, netbook or tablet.
The game has a lot of similarities with the PC game "Age of Wonders" (but with auto combat on, of course).
Freel free to take a look,

Game 3 is up and running (turn 4 atm). 153 players are active in the world and they are all like hungry vultures looking to each other, heh heh.
In case you have missed the start, feel free to join. You'll get the same benefits as the players who have started from turn 1.

Here's another TBS that's under active development:
Doesn't have all WeeWar's features (like private games), but has some WeeWar doesn't have (like troop transports).
|05/03/2011 17:09:33 Re:Games Similar to WeeWar|
If you have an iPhone there's some nice options available:
Uniwar (Really well implemented game w/ 3 Races to choose from)
Rogue Planet (Fun single player campaign to play through as well as multiplayer TBS)
Highborn (More fantasy based, which I'm not a fan of, but so well done I still like it)
I can highly recommend the above. Below are some I've downloaded but not yet played enough to give an informed opinion:
If anyone wants to give any of these a go and can't find an opponent I'll be happy to give you a game.
|06/03/2011 16:39:33 Re:Games Similar to WeeWar|
this one looks very similar to weewar i must say. graphics are a bit more 80s over there. did you create the game dris? i've read elitecommand's catchphrase "All your base are belong to us" in somebody's weewar profile before but can't remember whose...

All your base are belong to us is an old school phrase, chances are loads of people have said it and i'm sure it's in a map name.
|07/03/2011 00:28:00 Re:Games Similar to WeeWar|
|I did create it, along with a friend of mine who did the graphics (and I love how those turned out, kind of retro ). Also, thanks for pointing out the Zero Wing reference!|
|07/03/2011 20:18:29 Re:Games Similar to WeeWar|
|hey dris was it difficult the write the transport units part? I wish weewar had transports too.|
