Which Saturn/PlayStation Titles to iOS?

Hey everyone 😃

So I'm a recent convert from Nokia and one who used to boast about the graphics on my N86 😳 ...until I got my iPhone!

I must say that the games on iPhone look pretty amazing and it got me thinking, why can't we see some of those awesome 32bit titles ported to iOS as I'm convinced it can be done.

Would love to hear which games you'd want to see. Here's my 5 picks

1. Winter Heat (Sega Saturn)
2. Final Fantasy 7 (PlayStation)
3. Shining Force 3 all scenarios (Saturn)
4. NiGHTS (Saturn)
5. Dragon Force (Saturn)
5. Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn)

Well, there's my picks. Saturn heavy as I was and still am a huge Sega fanatic!

So what you guys think?

P.S. I know there's 2 number 5's 😁

Hi thegazman and from another newbie, welcome to Touch Arcade! 👍

Shenmue is definitely epic! I put very many hours into that title. Was sad that the full vision was never realized 😣

You think Crazy Taxi would work on iOS?

Crazy Taxi would be cool But the controls might be a bit tough as the original wasn't called crazy for nothing lol

How could leave out Lunar & Lunar2 ESP if were talking about Saturn, they also had some other great RPGs like Grandia etc..

I would love it if Shining Force came to the iPhone. SF 1 & 2 are some of my favorite games and I never got to play 3 because I never had a Saturn...

I only got to play scenario 1 as the others were canned when the Saturn sales faded. So I'd love to finally play through all 3 and see how it turns out.

Trust me, Winter Heat was a stunning title too and one which could work on iOS. Here's holding thumbs!
