1. Simple platformer. Simple and unique. Something new. There are many really good platformers out there but all are very different in a way.

2. 3D RPG. Personally, I don't enjoy 3D console-esque games on the iphone due to poor control systems. Making one is porbably really hard as well. But I'm sure if you make a good, real RPG (not like Ravensword, which is a good game none the less) with depth, it will be well received.

3.Zombie Game. For lack of a better option, mainly. Since it's so vague it could be anything. I much rather prefer a simple, quick zombie game with nice (not realistic) graphics.

4. RTS. I wouldn't go with this option because there are many RTSs released already and many of them are really good, but still obscure. Also probably will take a long time to make as well.

5. Towerdefense. Too much competition .

3d RPG (only if good)
RTS (need more of these as well as TBS)
Simple platformer (like?)
Zombie Game (only if scary)
Tower Defense (too many)

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!

This is really great feedback. Please keep it coming. We don't want to bias the results by commenting just yet - but we're listening intently.

4. Tower defense

I don't have anything against RTS's, but I think TBS's work better on the iPhone.
