A game like FlatOut or the older Burnouts would be awesome to see.

For something unique (racing and combat mechanics not in iOS at least)...

1. Look up the game Micro Maniacs.

2a. Clone it.

2b. or to make it different, change the view to behind the back, like how Repulze, Riptide GP and Asphalt do it. It may look like a runner, but with the combat system, laps, and tracks it will feel more like a racing game.

A game like Gran Turismo, having to start from 100's of scrap cars and eventually buying and upgrading one of the fastest cars in the game. But it would take a long time to get to that stage of the game. Thats the downfall in most iOS racing games today. You unlock cars way to fast. Why not buff a single car up for hours, tweak the suspension, gears, tire pressure, etc. Just to get a fast enough beginner car. Loved how Gran Turismo 2 had million possibilities yet they needed more. I also think that they ruined the franchise after they continued on after 2.

So please make a game like this.

Thanks.

Some good suggestions, ah Twisted Metal and Destruction Derby, awesome games. DD2 would be pretty straight forward to make.

My vote would be for DD2. Not much demolition games on iOS that are any good.
