For those that want to relive some retro fun the Cinemaware Anthology was released on Steam for $8.50. Comes with the following Amiga emulated games:

Defender of the Crown
The King of Chicago
Sindbad and the Throne of the Falcon
Lords of the Rising Sun
Rocket Ranger
It Came From the Desert
It Came From the Desert II: Antheads
TV Sports: Football
TV Sports: Basketball
TV Sports: Baseball
TV Sports: Boxing

There's also PC emulated versions of these games you can play too. The games play full-screen and don't even look bad at 1920x1200. You can also use the controller on most of the game and a few are mouse only. The only Cinemaware game I can think of that's missing is Three Stooges. So a pretty comprehensive list of games. I also has It Came From the Desert II: Antheads, which you could only get through mail from Cinemaware. Was always kicking myself not doing that so hadn't played it till today.

The games are just as difficult as you remember but at the price its worth revisiting them.

Also there's a Kickstarter for Rocket Ranger: Reloaded going on.

Oh boy! I wish this had been released in summer or something, because I sure as hell haven't got time for this now, but how could I possibly resist giving It Came From the Desert another go? Back on the Amiga, I used to be able to reliably win that game. I don't think I would be able to do that now.

I owned most of them back in the day.  In fact, I came home with Sindbad and the Throne of the Falcon (and Silent Service) on the day I bought my amiga 1000 in '86 (?), I think it was

I wonder if we'll see any creativity from Cinemaware in this era .. so far they're like a 50's doo-wop band touring on their past fame

they were, perhaps, the most creative back then
