90s games you'd love to see for the iPhone

So playing around with Earthworm Jim got me thinking recently that the iPhone has become a pretty cool platform to bring old games back to the public eye. So far we have the likes of: EW Jim, Wolf 3D, Duke, Flashback, Myst, Monkey Isl, Sonic, Worms, and probably a bunch of others I'm forgetting.

So what other 90s (and 80s?) classics would you love to see on the iPhone?

I'll start the list with a few that came to mind earlier today:


- Prince of Persia (the 2D games)
- Return to Zork
- more Lucas Arts (ie: Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, etc.)
- Out of This World
- Oddworld 1 & 2
- Blackthorne
- 7th Guest
- some Sierra titles (ie: King's Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory)
- Crusader: No Remorse (and Crusader: No Regret)
- X-Com

Lemmings--the father of RTS--and I mean of course the Amiga-only two-player mode with two mice hooked up to one Amiga Pure stress!

Of course these days it would be even better: two devices, so you couldn't peek at the other player's split screen!

(I wouldn't mind replaying the classic single-player campaign either.)

ah, yeah, I remember the catacombs. That was where you had to find the Minotaur, right? Yeah, that was a b_tch. I was lucky that I saved just outside of it, and I remember I had to write down all of the directions I had tried on a notepad just so I wouldn't repeat myself. Even then I was OCD. haha.
