The gambuino, arduboy, etc games

They’re neat to have but would it be possible to upgrade them for pokitto? I know the other formats are monochrome what would be involved in making them “pokittoHD” versions.

Yes it is. You’d have to rewrite a large chunk of the code though.

Mostly you’d have to substitute all the platform-specific code (e.g. the rendering code, some of the startup logic, the input handling) and remake the graphics.

If you want to look at a real-world example (which has been ported, but the colour hasn’t been changed) then have a look at the two different versions of Physix (a really basic physics demo that I made):
