@ByteThis Absolutely, and they're already working on it: https://modmyclassic.com/2019/09/20/sega-mega-drive-genesis-project-lunar-hack-update/
Armor Alley (DOS & Mac)
Haven't checked yet if it runs on the Pi.

@UDb23 So it's like Choplifter, but for DOS?

No, actually apart the "Heli look" the game is totally different.
It mixes action & strategy elements; you need to create your army on ground to conquer enemy's HQ and meanwhile pilot the heli.
You can play a web browser "remake" for free on this site.

@IanDaemon Reminds me of Rescue Raiders, I posted a review on that a while back in this thread.
@VictimRLSH Yes, you're right; apparently Broderbund was inspired by that game.

Looking at @thelostsoul's posts I gleaned another four arcade titles to research.

@UDb23 Never played Armor Alley, but it definitely looks like it was derived from Rescue Raiders. I played that game at least once a day until my apple died, but could never make it past the 4th level without a cheat. Insanely hard, perhaps Armor Alley toned the difficulty down a bit. I will have to give it a try.

Scummvm - Blade Runner.
Absolutely fantastic looking click&point game that's an awesome representation of the film and novel. If a little bit wonky in places when it comes to progress, but otherwise the mood and character of the game shines through.
Oh and not obscure games by any means but have been playing Apollo Justice & Professor Layton on Drastic recently.
The mic bits in Apollo Justice I was concerned would block me, but Drastic seems to send an input on the game that gives a constant blowing effect, so it allowed me to progress through the fingerprint sections. So any DS games anyone is worried about not working due to that mechanic, it does work!
And Professor Layton, despite being a touch screen game, it's very slow and as such, easy to use the analog stick as the stylus. Unlike something like Kirby where you need fast touch screen actions. So Layton is very playable and great fun on a big screen!

@Clyde Excellent ! A different team had a version of Hakchi (3.6.0) working with the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis Mini with a Retroarch frontend but pulled the software as it had many bugs regarding compatibility with the Nes/Snes classics and are reworking their version of Hakchi at the moment. Have fun with it ! :-)
