Default Amiga Games to SmartPhones?

It's unclear which exact Amiga (late 1980s / early 1990s computer) games were acquired in a $500,000 purchase but the new rights holder is looking towards smartphone and tablet ports.

“Writers’ Group will be making additional announcements over the next several weeks regarding Amiga Games’ new and existing distribution arrangements with the best-selling smartphone, tablet and other device manufacturers."

Many of the Amiga titles are retained by other parties like Bullfrog (Syndicate!), Psygnosis, The Bitmap Brothers, Rainbird/Firebird, Bullfrog, Titus, Millenium, etc but maybe we'll see some quality retro ports (assuming the title owners include iOS in their arrangements with "best-selling smartphone, tablet, and other device manufacturers").

Nice find. Be interesting to know the games they have. I always thought mostly the big name games were from indies. Frustrating as most old Amiga games are gathering dust

I wonder if today's King of Chicago release is part of this deal and either way how many other Amiga ports are to come.
