Added OpenTyrian. The source code in this case was translated from TurboPascal to C but it's still the original code, not a recreation from scratch.

Please add C-Dogs SDL (Shoot 'Em Up); it's the original C-Dogs ported to SDL so it runs on modern operating systems.

The source code of PaybackTime 2 was included in the more recent release of the freeware version (not available at the page I've linked to). A while ago one of the developers, Niko Nevatie, has uploaded the source to GitHub:

I've juggled the list a bit, added more titles and removed the shareware open source games.

Apparently Frogatto & Friends is no longer freeware (the engine is still open source though), so it'll have to be removed. A Windows demo is available at IndieDB.

[Edit] Fixed some broken links in the list, added several new games, and removed the following:

Hex Bubbles (project removed from SourceForge, unavailable elsewhere)
Multiplex (not open source)
SLUDGE[engine/SDK] [SourceForge] (project removed from SourceForge, unavailable elsewhere)
Go Ollie! (downloads, including the source, are no longer available)
Tiny Tetris (download has not been preserved)
Small Tetris (download has not been preserved)
Paragon (no source code appears available; latest release downloadable here)
