Games that would be great if they had updates

So i was looking though some of the stuff in the app store and some of the stuff on my touch that is so so, and i was thinking that there are a lot of games out there with potential to be good, if only they had updates in specific categories.
I had in mind games like:

Duck Hunt (recently released) - If it had sound it would be a great port of the old duckhunt; however according to the dev this is imminent.

The ipet, virtual pet, nintendog-like games out there; if enough effort were to go into these, they could really be awesome.

I also think the lemonade stand simulation apps could really be good if enough thought were put into them.

What do you guys think? What apps do you wish had more updates/more effort put into them?

Zombie Mansion. Accelerometer support would make this game..... a game. Also if Urban Tycoon wasn't abandon by the developer, it might have brought up interest again.

I agree. My thought when I saw this thread was that it would be time-consuming to write a list. So many games and apps could be great if they were updated.

yes but seriously, what defines an update? I mean what if the dev of urban tycoon came in and "updated" his game and made it better than simcity for only a buck? See what i mean, every app has the possibility to be amazing with updates.

Snails reloaded: it's pretty fun but the control scheme, and general interface set up are horrible (such as ridiculously small menus). With some minor adjustments this game could be great
