But your character must make use of bombs, spaceships, and many other elements in order to fill his quota of jewels.

2. Globulation 2

Globulation 2 is an innovative Real-Time Strategy (RTS) game which reduces micro-management by automatically assigning tasks to units. Globulation 2 brings a new type of gameplay to RTS games. The player chooses the number of units to assign to various tasks, and the units do their best to satisfy the requests. This allows players to manage more units and focus on strategy rather than individual unit's jobs. Globulation 2 also features AI allowing single-player games or any possible combination of human-computer teams.

Impressive

Wow I didn't know there were so many corny games for Linux, Now I can sell my PS3. Wow Ubuntu you have really gone beyond yourself offering the same games nearly every Linux distribution does. That has to be tuff. Definitely deserves a download, some time, well.... If I have the room.. Looks like I don't. The 200G of blank space is to important for me to use. Nevermind.
