As a long time fan of the advance wars series GBA/DS series, I'm wondering if anyone can think of any games that are kind of like it and why they remind you of/are similar to it.

Thanks!

Definitely Heroes of Normandie.

This is a WW2 game for two players that takes a cinematic approach rather than a historically accurate one to the battles fought on the western front. The first time I played it, I thought it felt a lot like Advance Wars.

Zombicide (Black Plague in particular) feels a tiny bit like Fire Emblem to me, and Fire Emblem feels a lot like Advance Wars (given it's the same developer). The map scale of the games differs wildly, of course.

A good assortment of characters that gain levels and power throughout the fight, various weapons and enemies, relatively straight-forward combat rules and math, etc.
