In this post I've decided to write an article about gaming on Linux. So if you've decided to take sometime off and go on vacation and find yourself with nothing to do, you can play some pretty amazing Open Source Linux based games. I've so far only collected 3, and they're all based on different genres. The first game is a FPS (First Person Shooter) called Cube 2. Then a historical real strategy game called 0 A.D. and it's set out to be a Open Source clone of Age of Empires 2. Finally last but not least is a puzzle game called Zaz, which is based on Zuma.
So click the read more for instructions on how to install the games.
1. Cube 2: Sauerbraten DOWNLOAD
Cube 2 doesn't exactly require any installation at all under Linux. All you need to simply do is download the tar, extract the archieve, and double click the Sauerbraten_unix file. Oh and don't try to directly run the bin from the bin folder.
2. 0 A.D.
You can install 0 A.D. Can be installed by Ubuntu users via the PlayDeb repository.
Download the PlayDeb file here to add the repository. And then simply go to Terminal and type in Sudo apt-get install 0ad.
3. Zaz. DOWNLOAD
Zaz can be installed by downloading the Deb file which was compiled by WebUp8.
So I hope you enjoy the games, and be careful of Zaz, it's very addictive.
