Favorite classic ports/remakes of old games

What are your favorites?

My choice would have to be Tyrian. I wish more developers would work on such ports (I want Lode Runner!).

Always remember that you are unique, just like everyone else.

My favorite ports are:
The Simpsons Arcade (More like a reboot due to updated graphics and homer is the only playable character)
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
Monkey Island Special Edition.
TG16 Gamebox
Capcom Arcade
Also, at one point there was a lode runner port on the AppStore but it got pulled.

Like Kirby and Castlevania? Try Bliblob:

Why was it pulled? -.- Copyright nonsense?

Hope those satisfy your Lode Runner needs

Also, Glypha is a fantastic Joust clone. The controls are great. It's free, too.
