Rollercoaster game (for Android) that's closest to Disney's Coaster?

Back in '93, Disney had a game for DOS called Coaster. You get a track editor, build and ride it in 3D, then it gets rated by some riders. Is there anything close to something like this in terms of game play for Android that's available now? Nicer graphics would be a plus.

BEEEEEEEEEEES

I am looking for an old BASIC(?)-programmed DOS game. It is about defending North America from an invasion of killer bees. I believe the file was SWARM.EXE, and I'm pretty sure it was freeware. [more inside]

What's the name of this DOS game from my childhood?

When I was a kid I played a DOS game that involved a man running through mazes and avoiding man-eating worms to collect pieces to build a knight. The game ends with the completed knight fighting a dragon. Does anyone have any idea what this game was called?

Game-name filter: DOS ninjas?

Idle nostalgic curiosity is driving me crazy - looking for at least the name (at best, a working version) of a late 80s/early 90s DOS (not arcade) 2-d ninja game - very simple, and the most notable characteristic is that the entire game was in uber-simple orange-red-green VGA palette colors against a black background.

Help me remember a mid-90s adventure game

Wooosh!

I used to play an old DOS game in which you had to manuever a paper airplane through a house, with each room being a different level, each of which got progressively harder through the addition of obstacles. The plane, if I recall correctly, had a fixed rate of descent and could only rise by moving over a fan/vent. If you touched anything you died. It was an awesome combination of puzzle/action. Bonus points if you tell me how I can play it on a modern WinXP box.
