Games that need iCade support

So I just got an iCade and so far I'm loving it. SCB, LOE, iMame, etc all works great. But it got me thinking about the other apps that I have that I can only hope add support for the iCade. Here's my list:

Candy Boy (I wanted to like this but the controls were pretty bad. Maybe this could help)
Continuity 2 (with extra buttons used for choosing the tile)
Death Worm (super mega worm works perfect with the icade. Why not Death Worm too)
Frogotto (another great platformer)
Galaga 30th
Jelly Invaders
Luxor (i think this would work really well)
Mrs Pac Man
NBA Jam (i grew up playing NBA Jam in arcades. This needs iCade support)
Pizza Boy (would need universal support too)
Sonic II
Sonic 4
Soul Calibur
Space Invaders Infinity Gene
Street Fighter 4/Volt (same as above)
Sushi Boy (already has multiple control options. why not another)
The Incident (dont know if they would add it since its a tilt based game)

What do you guys think? Any suggestions for other games?

Yea Ive seen the other thread but that's more of a compatibility list.

That other thread isn't really a wishlist even though it says it in the thread title.
Agreed, that would be a good one.

Not really. Some games are better suited for touchscreen. Fruit ninja as an example.

Yes, my original intention in the other thread was to contain a list of what games people wanted, but as more games were actually released that obviously became the topic of discussion.

I already sent a message to the Pizza Boy developers asking for iCade support.

And The Incident would be really great without those tilt controls. I really hate tilt controls (other than racing games).

I disagree about Kosmo Spin... The game mechanic revolves around spinning the planet with your finger, so adding iCade would defeat the purpose!

There's a jailbreak tweak call Blutrol that allows you to use iCade with games that have virtual buttons like Street Fighter. Cost $6.99 though.
