Games That NEED To Be Ported

All these games are possible to be ported, and I will explain why underneath.

Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis
Similar to Sim City. It's graphics need to be SLIGHTLY downgraded and bam! It's ready for iPhone. Even the controls are easy to port for iPhone. The controls are VERY similar to Sim City also.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour

This would be extremely easy to make for iPhone. Graphics are PS1 and are not too good, but PERFECT for iPhone. Like Cro-Mag.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roller Coaster Tycoon
I don't think RCT3 (fully 3D) can be ported to iPhone. Although a 3D "Ride Your Ride" is possible as shown by AirCoaster. Maybe one of the 2D versions like RCT2. I think that is possible.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

N or N+
I contacted the devs and they told me they really want to make a iPhone version. But they said they don't see how to make controls work and etc. I just KNOW it's possible. It's available for PSP and the DS after all.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm still trying to remember the rest give me a sec. I know there's two or three treads on this already. But I want this one only to be about games that are possible! Not people requesting games we all know can never run on the iPhone. Feel free to post others, but like the above style.

OK some more.

Crazy Taxi
Is very possible, graphics and control wise.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zoo Tycoon 1 (with all expansion packs)
Most likely if ported the expansion packs will be part of the new 3.0 "in app purchase". But it is possible. It would be like Sim City.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Others are already being considered or being ported:

  • Syberia - Being ported
  • Audiosurf - Trying to see if possible. See thread.

The only one I agree with is Roller Coast Tycoon.

That would be sweet.

I've spoken of this one before.

Enigmo 2
Seems possible. I asked them and they told me they had talked about it before and that they were looking at it. But that there were some "technical issues" they had to get over.

You know you can edit your OP?
