    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 (Sonic the Hedgehog (1991 video game) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) games by Sega Genesis (Sega Genesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) though there are no coins or bosses to fight and youre being chased instead. It was fun and I think it is a creative twist on side-scroll games (Side-scrolling video game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). 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!

    Agreed, I think for me, classic side scrollers are the way to go. While I like NOVA and 1st Person shooters, they are a little difficult (for me, an old fogie by gaming standards) to navigate. I also think RPG like Chaos Rings are interesting on the iOS platform. Fun and challenging, but easy enought to control.

    I would LOVE to see more classic style games like Donkey Kong, Burger Time, the Popeye Arcade, original Mario Bros Arcade, um....JOUST! I really dig the idea of a Sonic Style game. LOVED Sonic!!

    Hey chick
    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!

    Thanks

    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.
