If you're looking to play games the following are probably the most interesting

androidp "Android (early build?)"
fball "Fire Ball (FM Work)"
lockonph "Lock On (Philko)"
lresortp "Last Resort (prototype)"
robotron12 "Robotron: 2084 (2012 'wave 201 start' hack)"
robotron87 "Robotron: 2084 (1987 'shot-in-the-corner' bugfix)"
robotrontd "Robotron: 2084 (2015 'tie-die V2' hack)"

Android / Fire Ball / Lock On are all newly working games.
In addition to the above 'Tournament Solitaire' and 'Magical Touch' also gained working status in this release, the latter at least might need splitting by sub-game.

The Last Resort prototype has interesting differences from the final game, so if you're a fan of that you might want to give it a spoin.

The Robotron sets are also interesting for competitive play, the 87 set fixes the reset bug when you shoot into the corner in certain cases, making the game more reliable.
The 2012 set throws you in the deep end, at a higher level, was designed for high level competitions etc.
The tie-die set is a further bug-fixed / enhanced version of the game that was made in 2014/2015 by the original Robotron programmer! ( ... ie-romset/ )
