    So i was looking though some of the stuff in the app store and some of the stuff on my touch that is so so, and i was thinking that there are a lot of games out there with potential to be good, if only they had updates in specific categories.
    I had in mind games like:

    Duck Hunt (recently released) - If it had sound it would be a great port of the old duckhunt; however according to the dev this is imminent.

    The ipet, virtual pet, nintendog-like games out there; if enough effort were to go into these, they could really be awesome.

    I also think the lemonade stand simulation apps could really be good if enough thought were put into them.

    What do you guys think? What apps do you wish had more updates/more effort put into them?

    produce applications under "Bullet Development"

    Zombie Mansion. Accelerometer support would make this game..... a game. Also if Urban Tycoon wasn't abandon by the developer, it might have brought up interest again.

    I agree. My thought when I saw this thread was that it would be time-consuming to write a list. So many games and apps could be great if they were updated.

    yes but seriously, what defines an update? I mean what if the dev of urban tycoon came in and "updated" his game and made it better than simcity for only a buck? See what i mean, every app has the possibility to be amazing with updates.

    The Internet
    Snails reloaded: it's pretty fun but the control scheme, and general interface set up are horrible (such as ridiculously small menus). With some minor adjustments this game could be great

    Yes indeed. Every app has the possibility to be amazing with the right kind of update. I've had the misfortune to buy some appalling games that might even become playable with right kind of update. I use the word 'might' as I no longer hold out any hope that those updates are coming...

    I agree that all apps have room for improvment in different areas, but it's a question of specifically what areas they should be updated in. Such as controls, user interface, options, gameplay. I'm not talking about nitpicking currently good apps, just the ones that have a reputation of being not so good that could really end up being great if they were fixed in one or more of the areas mentioned above.

    Band!!!

    this was my most dissappointing app ever, but if they added a bunch of sweet instruments, like a real guitar it could be awesome

    In the next few days BounceTrap gets a (free) update that adds tilt control to the balls after they are released. It takes a very good game and makes it into a awesome game. And by awesome I mean totally sweet.

    It also has been reduced to under 10MB (from 26MB) WITH ALL THE SAME AUDIO AND GRAPHICS.
     
  16. Stroll Garden might be a good game if it ever had an update that I could actually use it. That one hidden object game took like 4 months for an update but finally came up and now doesn't crash at level five.

    Mafia needs an update to change their user interface. Needs those little font links to be changed to full smooth tabs and a more colorful/usable graphics.
    Also needs the ability to be able to post to family members and/or post to the whole family at once. Basically be like iMob, but without the bugs/cheats/server issues.

    This game rocks, very stable, just needs an update to be a top online game

    Lux Delux is in desperate need of an update. I don't hear much about that game on this board, but I was obsessed with the demo that was released months back.
