Donkey Kong CoCo 3
Sockmaster hit the heights with a near arcade-perfect conversion of Donkey Kong for the souped-up Color Computer that probably never made it to Europe. I'm not sure if there's an emulator that can play it properly yet! His site also contains good information on the CoCo 3.

Xeo3 Commodore Plus/4
Xeo3 Amstrad CPC
Xeo3 Amstrad CPC+
Xeo3 is a new horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up for the Commodore Plus/4 by Mike Dailly and Luca Carrafiello. Now it is being converted to the C64 by Mike Dailly, to the Spectrum by Russell Kay and to the Amstrad CPC by "AndyC". For the Plus/4, a rolling demo and a YouTube video is available. Progress was good, but slowed to a crawl over 2007. The Spectrum and Amstrad CPC versions still exist, but they are moribund. There is now a CPC+ version in the works, as the game without levels spreads further! All versions are now very frozen indeed...
