There have been some amazing ports of some modern games to other platforms. Doom, for example has been ported to the Amiga, c64, and even the vic-20! Faster than light (FTL) has been ported to the commodore 64
. Cannabalt has also been ported to the C64.
In both cases, some compromises have been made, but the feel of the game are still there. Perhaps FTL would be an easier port to the Amiga 500.
