Source Ports for Crystal Caves and Secret Agent?

Getting old DOS games working on modern hardware. (DOSBox topics belong in DOSBox areas below, not here).

Source Ports for Crystal Caves and Secret Agent?

Do either of these two Apogee games have any source ports for them?

Creating a source port is kinda hard without the source code.

OpenCrystalCaves. OCC is an unofficial open source engine reimplementation of the game trilogy

https://github.com/gurka/OpenCrystalCaves

Note that the sprites are not available in this repository. You need to own the original Crystal Caves to be able to extract the sprites and use this engine, see below. The original Crystal Caves can be purchased at Steam.

Looks to be Linux only, but SDL is pretty portable so I would think a Windows version isn't impossible.

Sorry couldnt find a similar project for Secret Agent.
Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.

Make your dos retrogaming experience portable!
