Some more games added to the Portingkit!

It has been very busy lately in my private life, so things went slowly. Tonight I had some more time, so I added some more games to the Portingkit including some game "versions" as well. Lets start with the game "versions": I added the GOG.com version of the games: Men of War, Men of War: Red Tide and Men of War Assault Squad.

Then I also aded another strategy game called Faces of War and from the same publisher the action game Death to Spies. Also on request the cool abandonware game Civilization 2 (inlcuding download of the game).  Then 2 more adventure games Broken Sword 3, and the amazing The Last Express. Have fun with these games in the Portingkit!
