What would you like to see on the iphone?

I'm an indy developer and would like to hear you thoughs on types of games you would like to see on the iphone?

Also what length in hours do you expect out of different priced games?

How long do you expect a full charge to give you playing a game?

Thanks

A rpg hack'n slash that does not seem a game for damned-snes.
But I realize that something like this is a job too heavy for an indy dev.

That's exactly what I was going to say.
Even something along the lines of a PS1 game would be great.

Yup!
Also a 2D graphic can bring the right atmosphere to an rpg.
Something like baldrus gate or diablo 2.

I was thinking something like FF7. I think something like that would be very doable on the iPhone. I bet it's only a matter of time.

Did you really just ask an indy developer to recreate Baldur's Gate or Diablo 2 on the iPod touch?

I would like to see a rogue/hack/band type game made for the iPhone. The port of Rogue is good, but it lacks a lot of the advancements made for games like AngBand.
