Are smartphones more powerful than classic Amigas? No doubt, but a good game is a good game, plenty of Amiga games untouched wouldn't look out of place on Android or iOS.
That's, in my opinion, the only way to publish a classic amiga game by now... I'm sure it will sell but I won't expect massives incomes... A couple of hundred boxed copies on the Amiga (200*25€=5000€) and a couple of thousands digital downloads priced 5€ (10000€). Well that's not very much if you want to pay the team that have made the game !
However, games are still produced for many olds machines, and produce a physical release of a genesis games in 2014 is much more expensive then doing it on an amiga, so maybe it may be possible...
