What game shall we make next?

Hi Folks,

Now Nano Rally is out, we are considering what to make next (along side updates to NR and a lite version - both of which are underway).

So if you have any suggestions for a style of game you would like to see, please let us know, on this thread or by PM.

Personally i like the idea of a top down golf game, as I loved Sensible Golf on the Amiga.

Let us know your thoughts if you think something is really missing from the app store.

Cheers

Morgan

I'm pretty sure that doesn't exist yet.
Yes, we are UK based. Hmmm, i presumed there would be a cryptic crossword app. Nice idea, I love The Telegraph cryptic - but The Guardian is rock solid!

Thanks Alichan.

Now i know this will be hard but...
How about a game where you can create your own person and items and stuff. Maybe by drawing or stuff already put in the game and you put it into a world and do physics on stuff. there can be tons of different options that could happen and you could chose what your items where made from. i'm thinking kinda like dust but different. you could also make a career mode where there are challenges and you have to complete them.challenges could me made there could me high scores and people could be creative. if you sdo something like that it would be a winner for sure. just look at games with unique puzzles and creativity and see how many people like them.sims (sorta),portal,dust,spore and probably a load more.
Huff* ideas over.hope you actually understood it.

Pilotwings.

Some minigames, each with a perfect 100 score possible. Awards for cumulative scores, awards for speed. Tilt and/or touch controls.
Can't call it Pilotwings of course...

I too would like a crossword app. http://www.red-sweater.com/blackink/ exists but it does not do UK puzzles and of course needs a mac.

How about a game like Scribblenauts that's coming to the DSi. Seems perfect for a touchscreen. Part of the screen could be used for writing, and the graphics could be similar to Doodle Jump.

By the way, I LOVE Amoebas
Crosswords by Stand Alone, Inc. has cryptic crosswords:

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=284036524&mt=8

It's $9.99, but has tons of crosswords from about 20-25 different papers.

The description on iTunes only says "US, UK and Australian puzzles," but I checked my copy and here are the available UK puzzles:

Globe & Mail Quick
Independent Concise
Menchester Eve. News
Syd. Morn. Herald

They offer both "regular" puzzles and cryptic puzzles from each of those 4 publications.

They also offer puzzles from a few premium providers at an additional cost. These include Telegraph Cryptic and Telegraph Quick. I don't know what the additional cost is, though.

Hope that helps.

The game itself is really well done, and is worth it in my opinion despite the $10 price tag.

I want to second the scribblenauts idea but I feel that would take a ridculous amount of time to produce. Castle crashers would be awesome though or like a game like paper Mario from N64.
