Default Looking for 'retro-inspired' games


First of all I'm coming from germany and my english is not really good. But I hope you can understand me.

I'm looking for retro-inspired games for iOS. No emulated games like R-Type or Double Dragon. I looking for original games with retro graphics (like The Incident) or clones from exist games back in the 80s and 90s. For example: Starbounder (a clone of the old SkyRoads from 1993), 8 Bit Rally ( a clone of the Lotus games from Amiga systems) or Final Freeway 2R (OutRun).

I have a iDevice since 3 months and there are so many and thousand of games... I can't overview this.

My preference genres are Platformer, Racing, Puzzle, Arcade and these things.

I hope you can help me.

P.S.: No games with IAP (exception remove ads like in FF2R or BlockBoy. This is fair. But I HATE pay2win-Games!)

Hmmm there's a game that's free at the moment called "quiet please" and it's retro and awesome, no IAP or anything.. The same company have a few other games that are similar.

Other classic pixel art games:

Bob jump
Eboy fix pix
Bobby carrot forever

Non pixel art-
Bumpy road
Penguin patrol

Organ Trail: Director's Cut. A post-apocalypse zombie spin-off of the classic Oregon trail.

One of my favorite iOS games ever.

Maybe you could check the Dark Nebula series if you're looking for some rolling-action.

There are already about two threads of similar nature, so there's no real point to this thread.

Since I'm using the app I can't link them, but I can tell you it might be on the second and third pages of this subsection.
