As most freeware games are open source now we can look forward to a host of 'retro' titles. Check this site for some SDL games compiled for AmigaOS. Granted, they're not the most imaginative titles one could think of, but they show what's possible (technically) with these libraries.
Cool! Thanks for that link. Looks very promising. This one looks pretty cool...
