Allegro Bounty Started at

This is a bounty to get the game development library Allegro ported to
AmigaOS 4.0 and possibly the other Amigaish operating systems like Morphos and Aros.
Allegro is very similiar to SDL.
Allegro is a portable library mainly aimed at video game and multimedia
programming, originally started by Shawn Hargreaves.

According to the Oxford Companion to Music, Allegro is Italian for
«quick, lively, bright». It is also a recursive acronym which stands for
«Allegro Low LEvel Game ROutines».

Information and download at the official Allegro homepage:
Examples of games that could be ported when we get Allegro:

Loads of games and apps are written using this library. If we would get
this ported
to AmigaOS 4.0 it would make porting of those apps/games a breeze.

None, apart from a willing developer/team. If it's a team we leave it up to
the team to split the money between them how they see fit.
