I don't think anyone is doing this.

Go for it! For ideas and help along the way you might want to take a look at
these homebrews...

Death Derby....nice car graphics and angle animations plus .skipDraw
Robot City.....maze movement routine
Star Fire......intelligent flicker and radar screen

All of the sources to these are on [stella]. If you use any portion I'd
recommend you talk to the original authors to make sure they're okay with
using portions of their work. I don't think any of them would mind though

Take care,
