What's the generic name for strategy games where you have nodes that can be used to take over other neutral or enemy nodes, usually where each owned node generates power? Here's a few I've found by searching "games like [example]":

  • Phage wars
  • Solarmax
  • Nano Wars
  • Auralux
  • dotHack
  • Bubble Domination
  • Galcon
  • Eufloria
  • Oil Rush

I find myself really drawn to these types of games, and never know what to call them.

    It's a type of real-time strategy but I don't think there's anything to really call it. Maybe cell or hex based something. – VanBuzzKill Nov 19 '16 at 6:37

They are called "Turn Based Strategy" or simply "TBS" because you do exactly that, take each turn separately. This is opposed to "Real Time Strategy" or "RTS" where both you and your opponent move at the same time constantly.

    Eufloria is very much real time and niet turn based. Same for Galcon iirc. – Arperum Nov 19 '16 at 12:31
