| When first looking at Syntensity, one might 
| infer that it is an FPS game. Nothing could 
| be further than the truth. Syntensity's 
| main achievement is the Intensity Engine, 
| which is a significantly modified version 
| of the Sauerbraten/Cube2 Engine with a 
| focus on online content. One could even 
| draw parallels to proprietary gaming and 
| say that this might be a FOSS answer to 
| Valve's Steam service and their Source 
| engine.


AssaultCube - An awesome FPS game for Linux.

| AssaultCube retains a movement bug from the 
| original Cube engine that allows players to 
| utilize straferunning to move at a faster 
| speed. This was left intentionally unfixed 
| by the developers because it was considered 
| an enjoyable feature of Cube, similar to 
| bunny hopping in Quake.

| When it comes to Linux shooter games, there 
| isn't only one choice. Games like Nexuiz, 
| OpenArena or Sauerbraten were a good fit 
| here too, but I decided upon World of 
| Padman.
| Based on the Quake 3 engine, World of 
| Padman is a fun, cartoon-style first-person 
| shooter with maps, weapons and characters 
| inspired from the Padman series. It 
| features nice, colourful graphics, popular 
| modes like FFA, TDM or CTF, and weapons 
| which will definitely make you laugh the 
| first time you'll see them.

| Christmas is a time for rest and 
| contemplation. To intersperse the period 
| with some distraction on long winter 
| evenings, a number of Linux games can prove 
| some diversion, as this article will show.
| The sports event of the weekend will be 
| going into winter break, and to while away 
| the time, we assembled a short list of 
| interesting but little known games that 
| have been brought to our attention over the 
| last few months. The recommendations cover 
| lots of different game genres, so there 
| should be something for everyone. 



Linux: Install a million games in one click!

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, not really a million, but how about
| tens or hundreds? Good enough for you?
| Today, we will talk about two extremely
| useful applications that allow to you
| search for hundreds of games that run on
| Linux, sorted by category, popularity,
| license, or price, read game synopses,
| check out the screenshots, and then,
| should you decide that you like some of
| them, install them with a single mouse
| click.
