Umm... GTA isn't open source, nor does it use SDL.

Openglad is C++, and it doesn't perform too well on my old P1 233mhz computer. I found from Shippy that this computer is about 20% or so more capable than a GP32, so it probably wouldn't work anyway, and it uses way too many keys.

Hmm...For Exult I'd have to re-write the "non-standard memory manager" that was ripped out (the way it got 20mbs of performance out of El 386's 8mbs of ram), among other things.

And if A600's right about Rocks'n'Diamonds, that leaves only Abes Amazing Adventure (I am NOT scaling down the graphics for Bubble Train). It will take me a while on this crappy old dial-up, but I'll see what I can do.

Abe don't work either, on the test computer. Also it looks pretty lame.

Looks like I'll have to actually make something from scratch (Oh, no!).

Check out the GP2X Wiki Suggestion Box - a lot of those games will work on the GP32 as well I'm sure.

How about The Ur-Quan Masters (one of the best games ever)? :D

A perfect fit for the GP32 resolution and control scheme. SDL. Open source (see PC project page here.

It's really huge, though. :ph34r: EDIT: So it probably doesn't fulfill the requirement of using less than 8mb of RAM. I'm not really sure, however...

Exult (Ultima 7 engine!), only seems to need SDL :) Default Resolution 320x200, supports OGG sound instead of Midi. And has been a DOS game, so 8 MB should be enough.
Okay, usually, it needs a mouse... but I think that can be changed.
Exult is almost impossible to port to GP32 due to memory limitations.

I tried to port it some time ago but I finally take it as impossible.

Anyway, I think the 64 MB of GP2X will be enough so as I said in other posts, I'm working nowadays to port it ;)

if you are still unsure which one to start, i have 2 ideas. Games i'm really
missing are a kind of a Metal Slug Clone or something like Xenon 1 & 2
where you can upgrade your spaceship ...
