Well, it all depends on the copyright status of the game in question,
and how easy the game can be converted to audio.
First, while it is true some companies like Activision don't seam to
complain about someone cloning some of their older games like Asteroids,
Packman, etc that doesn't mean it is absolutely safe to do so. Donkey
Kong, one of the games you mentioned, is owned by Nintendo, and I happen
to know they are very protective of their copyright interests. In fact,
Nintendo usually renews their copyrights buy releasing new versions of
their popular titles like Mario, Donkey Kong, etc regularly. So knowing
the status of the copyright in question is the first thing to keep in mind.
Second, some game slike tetris would be difficult to create an audio
only version of. That game is very visual by nature, and I'd be hard
pressed for ideas how to make it "accessible" enough for a blind player
to play. So the type of style of game also needs to be considered here.
