I am sure this is a common topic, so there have probably been many similar threads.
I was just wondering, what games did you play many years ago that you'd like to see on iPhone?
We've had several things like Z, Speedball 2, Gobliiins, etc. What else would you like to see. I would like to see Cadaver (http://www.bitmap-brothers.co.uk/downloads/images/cadaver/index.htm) and Legend (http://www.lemonamiga.com/reviews/view.php?id=295), although I am not sure how well they would work on the device.
On a related note, what old gameplay mechanics have not been represented yet on iPhone.
Cheers

I'm not sure how much of a remake it is (and I doubt we'll see it on iOS because it was removed from gaming when the licensing was revoked) but I'd love to see EA Sports make an MVP Baseball. That game was awesome! (if you can't tell, I'm a baseball fan :p)

I am not a particularly big sports fan, but I did love Sensible Soccer. Anyone play that?

I personally hope Ambrosia, who has already made a number of iOS games will reach back into their catalog and release some of their Mac classic title like Maelstrom, Apeiron, Chiral, and EV. :p

Ground Control Series - PC strategy game. For some reason I think this game would do well with a touch interface.

Black and White - used gestures to do spells... would think that fits nicely on an iPad. Maybe simplify it to be a creature wars game... More action RPG like

You and I are on the same page.
I am currently making a game inspired by 'Chaos', one of the ancestors of X-Com.

I agree with x-com as well I could play that game forever but so far no one has been able to replicate it quite right I'd be amazed if someone could manage so huge a task on IOS, also love chaos myself I still think it's one of the best multiplayer games ever made it's sad most people immediately judge it on it's early spectrum graphics as it has some real deep strategy and gameplay.

Elite. Firebird's Elite. Nothing new, just a perfect port of the C64 version. Or a port of Elite Plus for PC.

Omggg, Starwars Battlefront for the win. RS was probably my favorite game in the series. It was one of the few games that were actually good on the PSP. But, I had Darth Vader on the back of my white PSP. It came with RS as a package.

There are a ton of SNES games that I'd like to see remakes for, such as Lufia II and Harvest Moon. As for PC games, I really liked the Legend of Kyrandia and Might and Magic series when I was young. I think they'd transfer over to the iOS pretty well too.
