Dreamcast games you think would work well on a touch screen

What are some dreamcast games or dippers you think game loft could do? Personally jet grind radio comes to #1 in my book but others like that fps online deathwatch game that rivaled quake 3 would also work nice as it only required one analog. Armada would be another perfect game to port as it blends space strategy nicely not unlike galaxy on fire 2. Record of locus war is my third choice as its a doable like killer rpg. Skies of Arcadia anyone? Chic churocket and rayman 2 show graphically it's very reasonable to port any game. Or how bout the greatest games of all time, Shenmue and Shenmue2?

I have to be careful discerning between what I would LOVE from the Dreamcast, and what would work. But Jet Grind Radio I decided sounds like a great candidate.

Seaman could also work. They could work in a mobile-friendly version where there are objectives, and less reliance on you having to be there for your seaman every second. That would be neat.

But let's be real: The only Dreamcast game that matters, and that would be perfect for the iDevice... is Ikaruga.

Don't know if it would work well, but I loved Power Stone.

Virtua Cop series and House of the Dead series would be perfect for tap to shoot, I would pay through the nose for the first Virtua cop as it's one of my all time favourites!

A dreamcast thread and only one mention of Shenmue? SHAME ON YOU ALL!

On that note have any of you guys seen any sailors?
