    JoVe Apps is thinking about our next game, we would ask you what kind of 2d game you want. We're interested in what the gamers want to see on the AppStore! Please tell us!

    An RPG maybe? But unique as a lot of the ones on the appstore lack originality. I guess something fast-paced and accessible would be suitable for mobile gaming.

    More games like recetter and harvest moon.

    Kinda like farming/shop keeping RPGs. There is a huge lack of that genre on iOS. The only game comparable would be adventure bar story but it doesn't appeal to me

    A deck building game where there is no IAPs, every player has the same cards and winning is dependent on skill and not whoever can spend the most money.

    Sorry but if everyone had the same cards, wouldn't winning be based on luck of the draw alone? I mean it wouldn't take long for all players to determine what the optimal deck is and how to play it, so winning would just be a matter of who gets what they need at the right time.

    Yeah and after all when building a good deck you're constantly buying new cards. IAPs would be nessecary.

    A unique game like tilt to live, or a decent turn based rpg with a good story (similar to the combat and graphics of Pokemon, not necessarily using animals to fight though) and also with a lot of items, quests, open world etc, I know I'm asking a lot lol

    Yea, geekydad. Muramasa and odins sphere were awesome games from vannilaware. Something in that vein would be great.
    Really a 2d RPG / platformer without all the grinding ( thinking of demon hunter, illusia, samurai girl. ). Swordigo was obviously the best of these on the AppStore. I think a lot of people would appreciate more. Wonder boy in monster world was the bomb. Just throwing that out there.

    More/Better MMORPGs. The only legit one on the market is currently Order and Chaos Online and even that game has many issues. Still waiting for that first one to come in and blow me away.

    Yes, but skinned up using a old school LDC game and watch type skin from the 80's!!! :D

    Maybe something like pix'n love rush, old school arcade score chaser..... SuperCrateBox-ish skinned up in a smooth framed LCD handheld skin.... Think high tech 1980's game and watch with a nice new school twist :D

    Nobunaga: Yes, I like Swordigo also, it's a very good game!
    Varking: We only make 2d games!
    Bacon-N-eggs: That's very difficult to make!
    Tannorexic: I agree! That's a good idea! I think many people would like a harvest moon type of game innthe App Store.
    ANIMALCHOPPINGS: And a deck building game without IAP and only in game money?

    Reactions are still welcome!

    Sorry dustin if forgot you!
    I agree and a RPG can be a idea, but as you say it's difficult to be original!
