A Tour of Linux Gaming

Filed under
Gaming

There are thousands of games for Linux, but where to start? I started as someone new to Linux might – I fired up the Ubuntu Software Centre and looked for some well-rated games to try on the list.

First up is FLTK Block Attack! Colored blocks move from right to left across the screen, and your job is to click on two or more blocks the same color to gain points and stop the blocks reaching the left hand side. It’s a basic, but perfectly respectable, implementation of a game that’s been around since the 1980s, and an enjoyable way to pit your reactions against the computer (or, as my daughter found, to click maniacally across the screen, which seemed to work pretty well as a strategy).
