Games you want to see on the iPhone?

The launch of "iPhone 2.0" and the iTunes App Store will take place in late June. On that day, purchasing a game for the iPhone can be done quickly, easily, and from just about anywhere.

On day one, many games will be available for download and many more will be coming in the weeks and months (and years) ahead.

Which games do you want to see land on the iPhone platform? Any old school classics or modern favorites you're dying for?

Sony's Wipeout would be one that I think would "feel" right on the iPhone. It's another racing type game, but somehow the use of accelerometer seems like it would work out just right.

NHL iPhone Game

I think someone should make an NHL game for the iPhone (And yes, I am Canadian )

The controls would be simple. You use the accelerometer to move your player around. To shoot, you flick the screen in the direction you want to shoot, and do a down then up motion for slap shots (very similar to NHL 08 skill stick). To pass, you just slide your finger in the direction of the player you want to pass to to. Other various moves:

Change player: double tap
Check Player: tap other team's player
Poke Check: hold finger down on touch screen


BTW, Anyone can use my idea (I don't have a mac, so I can't program this). Just PM me if you are going to use my idea (and put me in the credits!!!).

All comments are welcome (don't flame me if you don't like my idea, please!).

Good notion. I'm a huge Wipeout fan ( obviously ). Tilt control could add to the game. We might get a taste for this in the soon-to-be-released Wipeout HD coming for the Playstation 3, as the SIXAXIS controller is accelerometer-equipped. Would love to see the franchise land on the iPhone.

But...it's unlikely. Sony owns Psygnosis who is behind Wipeout. And...well...you know who makes the PSP...

I'd not mind seeing a simple game of accelerometer-controller Lunar Lander on the iPhone / iPod touch.

Making the fighting game for touch screen might be difficult ;> someone need to invent good fighting input first for touch screen only device. Visual buttons are simply to flat and slow.

that would be a challenge for the developers to sell the fighting game with the on screen buttons. i personally don't like onscreen control but i am sure there might be a solutions...
