Polyroll looks cool..never seen it before.

A few more that may qualify:

Shantais risky revenge

Quiet, please

Eboy fixpix

Time geeks series

Bob jump

Mcpixel


And that game where your a girl and it's a platformer with water melons.. Graphics are kinda like yoshis island.. The name has slipped my mind

Great list! A few others for consideration:

Spike Dislike
Retro Racing
Robot Wants Kitty
Spectre

Personaly would have loved to put Vector Tanks in there but damn Atari laywers...

You put Space Invaders Infinity Gene in there so I'd also say Pac-Man CE. But, if you go down that route, you could bring on all the Sonic games and probably hundreds of other ports. So not sure where you want to draw the line.
