What are your Top 5 Classic Style Game Apps?
I am an aspiring iOS app developer and love classic style games that are good for a quick break. What are your favorite Classical style game apps for the iPhone, iPad and/or iPod? Thanks for the help!
All the best,

If anyone knows of a Bust-A-Move clone, PLEASE let me know. I had a version on the PS2 called Super Bust-A-Move 2 and it was AWESOME! Real fast play, real competative, it was real fun in groups. Groups of my nerdy roommates, BUT STILL!!

Sorry, I know that wasn't really helpful. So, here it is, I really like sidescrollers. I think Gravity Guy is really cool and the online multi-player action is great. I am a HUGE fan of classic gaming (because I suck at new games :-/) and will research some iPhone games and let you know.
I checked out Gravity Guy and this game reminds me of the original Sonic the Hedgehog games by Sega Genesis though there are no coins or bosses to fight and you’re being chased instead. It was fun and I think it is a creative twist on side-scroll games. I would like to see the game become more challenging though, perhaps some on-coming enemies to avoid and a way to fight back? Try not to sneeze while playing, that got me good while on a hot streak.
Thank you for sharing Meskin84!

Check my list
If your are a game developer then check metal slug and max payne mission games. These will help you get some idea.
I have played both back in the day and enjoy them as well. Now if only these were made to work for the iPad. As a developer Mr. Jones, this would be a product I would pay for, though rights to development might be a challenge. Metal Slug and Max Payne, as apposed to Gravity Guy and Burger time, have more going on in terms of player actions and moves. I tend to enjoy games that have greater variety in actions, a good example would be an old game I used to play in school, Treasure Mountain! and Treasure MathStorm! by the Learning Company. Educational games have always struck me as fun. I suggest checking it out. I would like to know what you both think!

I have played Treasure Mountain! and Treasure MathStorm both games and found them pretty addicting. Both the games are having pretty good game play. I am suggesting your few more games like this, check adventure island and ninja turtles, I think they will provide you good classy background and game play.
