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.

Quote:
“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.
