Since I'm interested in Path performance, I suggest an old-school vector-based Asteroids clone :-).
No artistic skills required, the scene graph & transforms map nicely for all the animation, and we should see jet how smooth such a simple game will run as the number of objects on the screen increases. If we can't handle an old 8-bit game from the early 80's with nice fluid animations then we can give up and go home :-)
