So, what you are saying is that it needs someone willing to do it since it is technically possible.

Pac-Mania X68000 ported to the Atari Falcon 030 (16 MHz, 14 MB RAM). A first and buggy experimental test version. The sprites are emulated in realtime so the framerate goes down on more sprites visible. Only about 10 lines of the original disassembled X68000 source code have been modified! Screen size: 384x240 pixel. 65536 colors. No sound emulation yet though.
Technically it was a very advanced machine. Dare I say that it was superior to the Commodore Amiga A1200, as it had a DSP and a '030 processor. Just a shame that it got little specialised software support and Atari pulled the plug on it. Doubtless it would have been under pressure for the VGA and soundcard PC market at the time as well. I don't think that I ever saw one in a computer shop or a Dixons at the time. Hmmm, maybe that was part of its problem.
