Redone older games for newer generation to play?


Hi. Some still remember classic games like Stunts or F117 or
Jungle Strike
etc.? Was wondering if there are similar games for linux or outside linux and|or newer release games or remastered|remade.

There's a new game for 386 and the like from 8-Bit Guy who released this:
http://www.the8bitguy.com/product/pl...-commodore-64/
I enjoy watching some of his YouTube videos and am tempted to set up DOSBox and buy the game and install the digital download (no floppy drives, sadly).

Found UltimateStunts but guess other Classic Games with and without DOS are not remade.

Emulators are good only for handheld devices now. And even then real deal beats them. If wine would not be required to play Windows games i would also get rid of Windows OS.

    all the lost .swp files are rescued, head for the socket which will take you to
    the next node in the cluster.

Don't know but someone contacted me about 68000 memory expansion. He/she responded about crossing some 8-16bit Nintendo catalogs to Mars CD. Supposedly Mars CD was supposed to be a NeXtStep computer with game catalogs, but only few dozen games of prototype and alpha quality exist and there was no NeXtStep O.S. uploaded or catalogued for Mars CD. It makes sense considering the marketing campaign "Welcome to the NeXt Level" with 32X name used. I'm actually testing my Macintosh PPc environment for some visual content on a different target but we might talk more. This person wants to do these games similarly to the OCremix.org music, except for the whole game and/or demos.

Holering, I have no idea what you just said but it sounds cool.
