Default What do you want from me?

I've recently rejoined the iOS development world on a part-time basis, and I'm pretty excited to be back.

As the developer of Blue Defense and Red Conquest, I've got some old legacy apps in the app store - only Blue Defense Second Wave has any kind of high resolution or Universal app support, the others are all iphone-only and haven't been updated in years.

Red Conquest, specifically, no longer has its multiplayer servers active. Blue Defense and Fastar have leader boards, but not in Game Center.

Aside from all these things, I have a new project in development, and I'm pretty excited about it.

However - I care about the community, and I've always listened to you guys in the past, so for anyone who cares about my old games, I have questions:
-What do you want me to do?
-Do you want me to update the legacy apps?
-Would you rather see me bring a new game with new gameplay?
-What did you like most about my old games?
-Does anyone other than me care deeply about the story of Red Conquest?

I want a RTS game that incorporates both rhythm and polarity.

If we're talking RTS games, I would absolutely love something like AoE.

Wow, didn't think I'd have replies already - there's a poll now, that should help focus this discussion a bit.

The poll is multiple choice - but if you want *all* of those things from me, try to limit the number of selections to 4-5 so I get some useful info out of the poll.

I kinda want new games, but it also bugs me knowing how great Blue Defense, Red Conquest, etc, would look on a retina iPad, so I voted retina/iPad support. No need to rush into things

Part of the deal is that I'm already heavily into development on a new project, and I'm very excited about it - so if you're concerned about what I *want* to put my energy into, it's a new game for sure right now.

Mostly, I just want to hear about exactly what you, the community, wants from me - if it even matters to you. My hope is to get at least 30 people voting (for statistical significance! hooray for confidence intervals), but I doubt I'll make it there.

After all, I've been gone a long time, and a lot has happened on the app store in the mean time... I'm a bit surprised and humbled that all my old threads suddenly became active again. People seem to care.

I want all of the above! I loved fastar. But the blue and red series bring back some great memories

Since 'Restoring Blue Attack and Blue Defense to the App Store' is not a choice does that mean it's a given?
