Three fun games reviewed

Filed under
Gaming

Today I decided to look at the current versions of three well-known games on Linux: Supertuxkart, Supertux, and Secret Maryo Chronicles. All of them detected and let me use my Logitech wireless controller, which made playing them a lot easier than if I’d needed to use the keyboard. Each of these games let you set the window resolution or else play the game in fullscreen mode. All three of these have versions for Windows, and will provide many hours of fun.

Supertuxkart

The current version is 0.7.3 – This game features 20 tracks, half of which are locked at the beginning of the game. There’s a multi-player (hotseat) option, and the single player lets you add up to 19 computer-controlled karts in 3 levels of difficulty.
