I think the games should be split into ports and original games. Of course, this might sometimes be hard to decide, for example with Wizzley Presto, which is a new original game but could also be called a port from the iPhone version... OrR

I think that's a good idea. But I got stuck on that same blurred line while planning a blog feature for homebrew games. Wizzley Presto is one, also GP2X games like Pool Panic and Battle Jewels. For my purposes (being to showcase our scene's own work) I decided that these games should fall under originals, because (i) it's all talent from within our scene, and (ii) the original authors are doing the porting. I don't know if we can apply such subjective rules to wiki categories though. Gruso

How about 3 categories:

  • ports of classic games
  • ports from other platforms
  • original Pandora games


Then I propose not splitting the list, but simply adding another column onto the end and marking each game "classic", "original", etc.. That way, if anyone wants to, he can "sort" the table into the correct categories.
On an unrelated note, I can't seem to figure out where to put GemRB. It doesn't seem to be a "game" as such, but a game engine port. But should it go into "emulators" along with ScummVM? Esn 00:17, 10 June 2009 (CEST)

"Where in world is... "

There is an entry under Games named "Where in world is... " which just links back to a Polish blog and doesn't appear to be a real game/application. Can anyone confirm this is a genuine entry?
