I love old style games like that... I grew up playing Police Quest... the first one. I still play it now and then. I wish there were more games out there like that.
    Another free point-and-click adventure I enjoyed (which was included with SuSE 9.3 if I remember correctly) was Flight of the Amazon Queen. I believe it's a freeware game played using ScummVM. The visuals are up there with most of the LucasArts games from back in the day.

    Woah! Looking at the screen shot of that game brought back the memory of playing Homie Da Clown... I wonder if I could find it though... I can't even find anything on it on Google or Wikipedia.

    Another suggestion for Linux games is BZFlag... a tank game, sort of a FPS. Very addicting.

    Thumbs up

    I found this article pointing to some free games for Linux:

    [ originally spotted on linuxtoday.com ]

    http://www2.linuxjournal.com/node/1000435

    Nice screenshots. I am not a gamer, but those look cool enough that I might just take 'em for a run.

    For all you FreeBSD users who hang around these forums (ha), I'd add that all but two of the games listed there are available in Ports.

    if online first person shooters are your knida thing, then i'd recommend checking out warsow -http://www.warsow.net its fast, really stylised and runs on old hardware as well as new. alien arena is supposed to be really good as well
    You know, aliens are going to come to earth in 50 years and kill the hell out of us for DDoSing their networks with this SETI crap

    Another one for the list is UrbanTerror. It's kind of a CS knockoff. Graphics look great in stills but not as well when running. Still though it's a good game and worth a look.

    Any Valve game will definitely not run on Linux without WINE or Cedega. Valve refuses to release a Linux version of any of their clients, although they're perfectly happy to create headless Linux servers for their MS Windows clients.

    If you have any questions on how to get that working, please start your own thread in the WINE section of the forum.
