    I was wondering if there are any RTS games on the DS.

    examples of an RTS game: warcraft 1-3, command and conquer, age of empires, etc

    Are there any games that have gameplay like the games listed above?

    Anno 1707: Dawn of Discovery, if you like civilization building games. And it is real time and a lot of fun.

    Robocalypse is my personal favorite. It's not that hard, but it captures the greatness of some of the PC RTSes and proves the classic formula can be done. It's damn hilarious too, thanks to the same writers who made Spongebob working on the story. But it truly has some kickass gameplay. If only they'd put games like Starcraft on DS, this game shows how well they'd work...

    Yes!
    Thought it is in Japanese, I highly recommend San Goku Shi Taisen Ten. It's not a traditional RTS (build units, send them to their death), but it is an RTS and has very deep strategy.

    I can't believe a DS RTS thread and Advance Wars games have not been mentioned.

    Advance Wars series are turn-based strategy games.

    Ninja town.

    >_> I think it's real-time strategy.
    It's one of them tower defense type games, but with freakin' ninjas.
    One of my favorite DS games to date.

    PC is of course the best platform for RTS' games, but I really like some of the DS RTS games too. It works just well.
    Just like Anno on Wii, works very good and that makes it one of the best Wii games there is.

    RTS actually have a decent potential of working on DS, thanks to the stylus being able to take place of a mouse(which is generally the only reason RTS fail on consoles/other handhelds). Obviously limited by specs though.

    Knights in the Nightmare. I suppose it's not a "pure" RTS, but it's so friggin' great.
