I don't know about his source code, but the Games page lists:
A clone of Doom, using reactive-banana, GTK, and the "diagrams"
A 3D first person shooting game
These might be helpful.
Advantages, when developing software in Haskell, are faster development
with fewer bugs. Disadvantages are: the compiled programs are slower then
when written in C and the garbage collection of a Haskell program (when
compiled with GHC) might sometimes cause delays in screen updates.
