Why not so many Amiga games ported/remaked for Android?

Hi guys

I constantly trying to find Amiga games ported/remaked for Android but there are not so many. Are they to hard to port and/or to complicated to remake due to copyright?

There are a few out there like Wings but regarding to so many great titles there should be plenty. A dream would be to play Super cars 2 on the Nvidia shield android tv. Kickstarter would be the perfect fit to start up remaked for Amiga games.

I've listed 73 direct ports/homages. That's not a bad start is it?

Thanks for reply. I tried uae4arm and the app is working, lots of features an settings. However i prefer emulators like mupen64 that has a more library feature. I would like to put all adf in on folder and the app would fetch cover art, then only click on the art to start playing.

The list holds some games but regarding all those great games they should be more. Maybe all the developers back then is not active and intrested but there should be potential money to be earn by recreted the games for mobiles. Personally i think lots of the games on Google Play has no orginallity like the old Amiga games.
