Freeware Retro Remakes

There are many old school classics that have made for the PC, some are very good such as Head Over Heels and T4 Funeral (a Turrican remake).

What do you think are the best freeware remakes?
What classic games should be remade?
Or should they all be left alone in there original glory?

For me the best remake is Head Over Heels. Its one of the best free downloads you can get your mits on. You can find it and many other remakes here:

Some other games on the site worth checking out are Highway Patrol (a remake of SpyHunter), Jetpak - Solar Crisis and Cybernoid 2.

For those intersted in T4 Funeral go here:

There are few Amiga remakes doing the rounds for Turrican and The Great Giana Sisters. I would like to see more. A freeware remake of Battle Squadron would be nice or Wizball (though remebered more fondly by C64 owners than Amiga owners).

I've said this on other similar threads - Rocks 'n' Diamonds is an excellent remake of Emerald Mine. It even includes Amiga emerald mine club level sets. It is also a remake of Supaplex and has sokoban support too.

It is open source and available on multiple platforms.

it would be nice if some of the improved remake such as Turrican to be also available on the original platform... but it's a nice tribute they've made !

Bombjacker, is that first link correct? I get a Microsoft site.

I would like to see a remake of Technocop, in all its gory glory.

You're right Drake1009.

URL should now be working for those who can't be bothered to cut and paste.

Somebody cared enough to make a remake of Wizard's Lair?

Man, this game sucked so badly...

Now the next thing we are going to see is a Starquake remake.. (Which actually wasn't a bad game..)

DARN, I don't believe someone "remade" Jack The Nipper 2, but Jack The Nipper 1 is completely forgotten!
