Only Modizer.

...and how could I forget the Activision Anthology?

I'm proud to report that I got to the point I could make it 2-3 rounds through Aztec Challenge. The theme song is permanently burnt into my memory. Man, those old Cosmi games had memorable music.

There's a decent port of Elite, it's called Unknown - Space Trader.

Sword of Fargoal Legends is a bit different from the original, but still good.

And while it's a port of the Speccy version - Lords of Midnight was on the C64 and the iOS remake is fantastic!

Aside from the many great CRPGs from that era (most notably Pool of Radiance and Champions of Krynn), I would really like to see an iOS native port of Fist II (side scrolling adventure sequel to Way of Exploding Fist). It may already be the game I play most on my jailbroken devices via c64.emu anyway, but a native port would be super sweet.

One day I put Fist II in there, started booting it and cranked the volume to max. Stepped outside and ~2 minutes later, "HHHEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!"

I'm not sure it would translate that well to touch screen, but citadel was always one of my favourites. I remember following the dev's articles of its development in a magazine back in the day... possibly zzap64?

Bruce Lee, but that was really only fun two player. SIlkworm was actually pretty decent.

And just for nostalgia as they were rubbish games but I loved them,

Nemesis the Warlock - Not intentional but it was like an early minecraft but you built your barricades out of bodies
Judge Dredd - This was terrible, but loved it.

FIST II is one game I've wanted to remake since I first played it in 1986. Near the top of my really-want-to-do list.
