What type of games have you wanted to see?

I'm a game developer & was wondering what type of games people would like to see on iOS? Just doing a bit of market research before I start work on my next project.

Endless runner with tons of IAPs and timers. I don't think that has been done yet.

Edit: oh, and add zombies to it. It will make it even more original.

More iPad strategy games! This year seems to be a good year for it, with the likes of X-Com and Frozen Synapse inspiring more developers to tackle the genre, but you can never have too much of a good thing. There are a lot more refinements the genre could do with on touchscreens... I don't think the innovation in that area has been sucked dry just yet.

Honestly, an FPS stealth game (like Deus Ex: the fall). I loved that game but would love to see more games like it on iOS. But really, I want to see ANY stealth game on iOS, it's something that the iOS platform is still very lacking of that type,

+1! Maybe a stealth based TBS game?? That would be A-MA-ZING!

Classic games. Especially Resident Evil 1,2 & 3 for iOS remastered.

Something similar to Mount & Blade. There's nothing like it on mobile devices (yet, hopefully).

Something like Vagrant Story.
Something like Shadow of the Colossus.
Something like Front Mission.
Something like Devil May Cry.
Something like Blood Roofs. Yes, im serious. Runner with a good story progression, great mechanics, boss fights.

Mechs. We need more mech games. NOVA3's mech scenes were fantastic, albeit short.
