Default What games would you like to see?

Here is the Zune Games FAQ. Considering that the Zune's games are limited to a 320x240 pixes screen and one handed play. What current games would you like to see or you think would be easily adapted?

Tetris, Arkanoid/Breakout, SFCave, Snakes, Soko-Ban, Paratroopers, ... all the classic arcade stuff should work fine with the GUI and interface of the Zune.

Jewels, Tetris, Bubbles, Battleship, and guess who... I just hope somebody will figure out how to get apps like a calculator on there as a game.

I would like classic arcade games on there. Especially ones which only involve left/fire/right seeing as how even that will be a pain to use (at least with 1st gen).

I would also like to see a game with a built in exploit so rockbox could be run on the Zune. The Gigabeat S port is already making ways, and it's probably going to be a matter of loading the same binary on there

Audiosurf, definately.
You pick any song in your library, then it analyses it for you and creates a race track with different coloured blocks for each beat. It's slow and uphill during the quiet parts of the song, and fast and downhill during the fast, heavy parts of the song.
If you have Steam, I highly recommend the demo. Check it out on Youtube too.

Yea, love Audisurf, really addicting and brought life to my old mp3's.
Not sure how well it'd run on the Zune though.

Tetris I think is a given. The player was practically made for it.

Yeah that's a point.
I guess you'd need a 3D card for it, something the Zune doesn't have.

I'm actually thinking of trying to get in on development for some Zune stuff. My programming's rusty, but I've heard that XNA is remarkably easy to work with. If the APIs allow the apps to be music-aware, my intention would be to design some classic arcade-style games that combine gameplay with music visualizations.

I caught the post, I just wish you would have coded those games for the Zune and had them for download as well.
