Which Old School games would you like on the iPhone?

I am often reflecting and dreaming of the games of yesterday that were so simple yet so awesome. That is why I wanted to take a poll on some of those popular games and which should come to the iPhone/iPod Touch!

If you want to make a suggestion, feel free to make a post, but I also encourage you to vote on your favorite choice from the given list.

Trust me, any of those games can be made on the iPhone from the right developer. Refer to my signature for qualification for that judgment.

True, but this has a poll and is actually more productive. We are seeing what the market is demanding and are willing to build 'similar' games to the ones voted for. (I am a producer at Pocket Monkey Games and we have developers willing to create games like these.)

If anyone wants an opinion in what games are made, this is a great way to do it.

Here's another you can use as well. Might be helpful. I have to find the retro game one.

We are already looking into doing a game like "Road Rash".

We see it as very doable. Look for upcoming announcements from Pocket Monkey Games for more on this later.
