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. The games are packaged into a large archive managed by a Permanent Portable Games (ppGames) system. 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.

All right, sounds good overall. 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.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
