i need ideas for a new unique app

i would like to gather ideas from TA members. I want to make a game of some sort, but i dont want it to be just another blah. There are so many different types of the same game.

GO!

I think the better way would be to ask yourself "What kinds of games aren't needed in the app store".
Too many TDs, match 3s, time-management games already.

Games, games, games..

It doesn't matter if there are a lot of the same genre as long as you can come up with some new twists to it in your game that sets it apart.

Beta tested: Parallelus, Galactic Gunner, Crazy Snowboard, IMO

I have two apps that would be great clones...strategy. Keep begging for them but I'm guessing it'll take two years before we see them. Think they'd be great games on the iphone. Can't Stop and Quoridor just make clones of those. With 3.0 OS it's easy to use bluetooth to discover two ipod devices and 2 player is possible.

Exactly. Those genres became crowded for a reason - they're popular, and people enjoy them. While I always enjoy a truly unique game, there's always room for more in any given genre. For example, Exorcist came up with an entirely unique concept, while still sticking to the general match-4 genre.

Just to let you know, I would like to make a pick up and play game. I'm really liking the graphics that Doodle Jump and Parachute Panic use, so try to imagine a game like that art style. Maybe this will help you think of some ideas.

Make the best FPS Game on the iPhone. You make that for me you have yoor self a great deal of $$$....By FPS I mean like, BIA,Terminater Salvation, something like that, a 3rds person shooter or first person shooter either or. You do that and you have yourself 15$ fomr my iTunes Account.
