Games Most In Need of An Update

I'd like to create a thread drawing attention to games badly in need of updating for iOS8/new devices, in the hopes of stirring up the community about rating or commenting on those games in the app store to light a fire under devs' butts to update them. I'm talking about the games we love and still play despite the lack of retina display graphics, ugly black bars on the sides, the fuzzy graphics on iPhone 6 Plus, and the frequent crashing. Or worse, the games that are completely broken or don't run at all on iOS8.

I'll start:

NBA Jam
Call of Duty Black Ops II: Zombies
Mutant Mudds
Sword & Poker I/II
The Hook Champ Series

Let's hear it, which games need updating? And c'mon devs, update those classic games!

Not exactly an update but more of final episode release, Stargate SG-1 needs a finale to the trilogy.

TWEWY, Drakerider and Chaos Rings trio in HD need the iOS8 support badly.

I'd kill for widescreen/iPhone 6/6 Plus support and Openfeint removal in all of the Llamasoft titles, but unfortunately that'll never happen.

Oh, and a modern update for Forget-Me-Not.

Mind you, all of the above still work...it's just. Gah.

Helsing's Fire. That is all.

I would pay money for an updated version of that game.

Very happy to hear that Helsing's Fire will be updated. I would add Karoshi to the list of games needing an update, it doesn't seem to work at all.
