My 5 Favorite Free Linux Games

#5 Armagetron Advanced

Linux, OpenBSD, Mac OS X, Windows

If you do not know how this game works, watch this clip from the movie Tron.

#4 X-Moto

Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Window

You ride around on a motocross bike, collecting strawberries and trying to reach the end of the level. Out of the hundreds of levels, my favorite, so far, is Adventure, which is pictured in the screenshot. I still haven’t beaten it; after the squares, I don’t know what to do.

#3 Wormux

Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, Windows

This is a great Worms clone, but I may have to try Worms with WINE just for the nostalgia.

#2 UrbanTerror

Linux, Mac OS X, Windows

This game is not fully open source! It reminds me a little of Counter-Strike, but it is still a unique game.

#1 OpenArena

Linux, Mac OS X, Windows

Finally, my favorite free game on Linux! Before OpenArena, I didn’t like either deathmatch or futuristic games because the only one I had tried was Half-Life 2: Deathmatch.

Bonus! Frozen Bubble

Linux, Mac OS X

This is my mom’s favorite game. You try to clear the screen by getting three or more same-colored balls in a row, which makes them disappear. Mulitplayer mode is very hard – I didn’t see anybody clear all of their balls.
