    One app that I definitely think needs to come to Windows RT and Windows Phone is MAME -- the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. Now that we have the ability to create C++ projects, this should surely be an achievable goal. It's available for iOS, it's even been compiled for the Raspberry Pi, so surely our platforms should be capable? I can imagine it being particularly good on Windows RT with an Xbox controller connected.

    If someone is looking for a project to take on, this would be a good one. :-)

    I think you just volunteered :). RT port would be great. 1942 and Gorf are two of my favourites !

    RT port would indeed be great. Sadly I don't have the expertise nor the time to volunteer for this. But someone really does need to...

    Let me see how well my first app goes. If I pick up the language well I may look into producing a port for this. Of course, I aren't volunteering to do this yet.
