Which Amiga games should be remade for iOS?

Maybe like me you also really enjoy seeing classic Amiga titles on the iPhone/ iPad -- like Speedball 2 currently mentioned on the frontpage. Which ones would you most love to see on iOS?

See you in Manyland, an infinite 2d sandbox mmo we all draw together!

Oh my heart,...

there are too much of them.

Bitmap Brothers game definitely.

Cadaver, Gods, Chaos Engine, Xenon / 2, Magic Pockets...
Delphine Catalogue , esp. Cruise for a Corpse.

then
- Hired Guns would be perfect for iphone
- Interphase also
- Killing Game Show
- Ork
- Escape from the Planet of the Robo Monsters
- Hard Nova! / Buck Rogers
- Space Rogue
- Sword Of Damocles
- Frontier (Elite II) but Braben is such a jerk this will never happen, I guess. He´s totally frustrated by the pirating.
- Virus - dito
- F.O.F.T.
- Infestation (Psygnosis)
- D-Generation
- LIBERATION !!!!!!! nearly a Sandbox Game at the time.
- Alien Breed / 2 / 3D
- Uridium 2
- Castle Master, this was so fun!
- DreamWeb
- Tracker
- Plan 9 from Outer Space
- SYNDICATE!!!!!
- The Killing Cloud
- Subwar 2050
- Tower of Babel
- Universe
- Innocent Until Caught
- Valhalla
- Paradroid 90
And that´s just my top list
