I've reworked the list yet again. The shareware clones and the open source liberated game build sections were dropped, and now board game implementations are a separate category.

Also, added the following titles:

Castle of the Winds, Ancient Domains of Mystery Diplomacy Panzer General II RPG Maker Sid Meier's Civilization Titan Wizardry VII

The list now has a separate section for free content replacement projects that use either the original engine of the respective game, or a game engine remake that is capable of handling original game data.

Also, added the following:

Half-Life Quake

Sorry, no idea. I don't know any of those games. I fancy you have already tried Googling for clones?

I'm sorry, I have no idea. I did not search for clones of this particular game.

Here's a very neat game in the style of Wolfenstein 3-D and Ken's Labyrinth called Gun Godz. Review video.
