Default Nostalgia Games for Mobile

Question: What are some games from way back that SHOULD, but haven't been ported for mobile gaming yet?

I've got a special folder on my iPhone for games that take me back to the good ol' days like Doom Classic, Wolfenstein 3D, Duke Nukem, and Carmageddon. I may not play these on a regular basis (except for Carmageddon) but I like to have em there, like a time capsule of awesomeness I can access whenever I want.

Personally, there's some games I would love to play on iOS, but are absent from the App Store.

My choices are:
- Blood (This one should DEFINITELY be made)
- Redneck Rampage (terrible, but I love it!)

Curious to see what other games might bring back some memories for you guys.

Unfortunately my biggest nostalgia games are Nintendo-related (namely Pokemon Red and GoldenEye), which means iOS probably won't see them any time soon... However, if I had to name anything within the realm of plausibility, I'd say it'd be awesome to have Metal Gear Solid and the classic PSOne Spider-Man game!

Games that should be, likely could be, but haven't for some reason:

Lode Runner (the classic PC / Mac edition)
Oxyd
Final Fantasy VII
Redneck Rampage (agreed, and with the return of the Cuss-pack DLC!)
Star Wars: Dark Forces
Prince of Persia 2 (the original non-remake version)

Probably a ton more...
