I've heard through the grapevine that the code for Ms. Gorf has been safely backed up from the 8" floppies, the issue is aside from being uncompiled it was never really a finished game, though it had one level that was playable (the one always shown in pics). The original programmer (Jamie I think is her name) has floated the idea of someday finishing it but who knows if that will ever happen as no doubt it would be quite a project, but here's hoping.
Bouncer is the holiest of holy grails out there as far as lost games but I've got to admit the prospects are looking pretty grim, but again, never say never. There's supposedly at least one surviving and complete Vertigo cab in the hands of a former Exidy employee but it's said he's totally disinterested in selling it, dumping the ROMs or even discussing its existance. NY Warriors I've never been quite sure if it actually made it to being a coin op, although I've seen pictures on the back of the PC version's box that claim to be screen shots from the arcade release, but there's a decent chance it was as it would have been an Arcadia Amiga conversion like Leaderboard Golf, Side Winder, Xenon etc all of which use a modified Amiga 400 motherboard for its arcade hardware.
But hey, Angler Dangler is now another one that's finally off the endangered/possibly extinct species list after being there for years, so there's always hope for others.
