Here's the main Games section. This collection focuses primarily on lightweight games that are sometimes overlooked, as opposed to endless versions of Doom and Quake or large MMORPGs (though the set does include my version of Doom, a Western game based on Quake, and a MMORPG named Deliantra). Additionally, there's 11 chess engines, two chess GUIs, and some variant chess games.

Games: Frozen Bubble



Image




Games: BEWorld

This is one of my own games. The code is about 100 pages of Tcl, not counting embedded binary data or blank lines. For more information, click here.

Games: LinCity Next Generation



Image




Games: Fydo's Pillows

The concept for this one is fun: stop a nuclear attack by using a catapult to land pillows under an incoming missile.



Image




Games: Simutrans



Image




Games: Simutrans setup program

This is a small setup program that I wrote for Simutrans. I've added launchers of this type to a few other programs, including regular applications as well as games; they simplify things quite a bit.



Image




Games: Secret Maryo Chronicles level

This is Casual Stroll, a sample level that I made for Secret Maryo Chronicles.



Image




Games: Smokin' Guns



Image




Games: Snakebite

This is one of several interesting games that are provided as part of Rocks'n'Diamonds, which is sort of a suite of puzzle worlds.



Image




Games: StarGnud

StarGnud is my version of NoeGNUd. StarGnud is more limited than NoeGNUd, in some respects; for example, it doesn't support SlashEm and it has fewer tilesets. However, this version provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements.

Games: StarGnud: Wizards and nuclear weapons

I thought it would be interesting to have a dungeon-style game that included phasers and nuclear weapons. Now, thanks to FOSS, I've got one.



Image




Games: Battalion

Here's Googelon, a character from Battalion, as he appears at Christmas (the game switches modes automatically during the Christmas season).



Image




Games: Running an old DOS game with DosBox



Image




Games, Chess: EBoard

This is one of the chess GUIs provided. XBoard is also available.



Image




Games, Chess: Vulcan Chess



Image




Games: Mirror Magic

This is an old but fun puzzle game. As a side note, it's a precursor to Rocks'n'Diamonds.



Image




Games: Old West

Like Snake Bite, this is one of the games that comes with the Rocks'n'Diamonds suite.

Games: PRFreeBoom

PRFreeBoom is my version of Doom. It combines PRBoom, FreeDoom, Slige, Slump, and a few other pieces.



Image




Games: PRFreeBoom in progress



Image




Games: Chromium B.S.U.



Image




Games, Education, Math: GNumch



Image




Games: Bubbman 2

This is a retro-1980s game.



Image




Games: SuperTux



Image




Games: Pingus

Pingus is a lesser-known Linux game that's moderately interesting. This game is similar to an old DOS and MS-Windows game known as Lemmings®. The screenshot is from my version of the game, which fixes a few bugs and adds a few levels that aren't in the standard version.
