Linux Free Mega Games Pack

Filed under
Gaming

Free Mega Games Pack (FreeMGP) Vol. 1 for Linux is an endeavor by LastOS team at cyvoc.net to create a free mega compilation of open-source and freeware games with light system requirements.

You open a sort of a browser window, choose which games you want to install and you deploy them on your system. Installations are done using Wine.

Lots of simple arcade games, puzzles, some abandonware, oldies, wrapped into a container that can be deployed on Windows and Linux, with a choice of skins and launchers. Let's see how this thing behaves. Simple to deploy? Is the content worth your time? How about future development and bugfixes? What about games themselves?

Let's take a look.
