Recommendations to Developers

Hey guys! Myself, along with many others know that a lot of time goes into making a game. And if you're going to spend that much time, you at least wanna have a good idea to base your game off of....so if you guys have any recommendations for games/gameplay, post it here!

(remember this is a PHONE so don't go asking for Crysis Mobile)

(if its a 2D game or 3D game, put that in the title)

I'm not sure of a specific name, but it sounds like a cryptography puzzle. Each letter is given a number, symbol, or other letter right?

A sidescroller would be cool. Tilt controls to move, A to jump, B to fire gun. pretty simple
