LettersFall 2.0

,----[ Quote ]
| A new game has been brought to our attention 
| called LettersFall which is a cross between 
| between Scabble(R) and Tetris(R). This game 
| offers the following items to the Linux 
| community.


MegaGlest 3.3.5 Pre-release special!

,----[ Quote ]
| A new version of MegaGlest will be released 
| sometime today! Once it is head over here to 
| download it! A short changelog can be found 
| here.
| MegaGlest is a relatively recent fork of the 
| quite well known FOSS Game Glest, which ceased 
| development some time back. Now that Megaglest 
| has taken up the development, things have 
| advanced quite quickly (in contrast to the 
| other promising Glest fork GAE) and Glest now 
| finally has the long deserved cross platform 
| multiplayer and a proper master-server with a 
| games lobby! Furthermore Megaglest includes all 
| the factions known from the Megapack before, 
| bumping the total number up to 5.



Red Eclipse

| Red Eclipse was pointed out to us here at
| LinuxGames. It is a free/open source game
| that was built from a total conversion from
| the Cube Engine 2 The game is a single-
| player and multi-player first-person ego-
| shooter wirh a âgeneral theme of agility in
| a variety of environmentsâ.


Linux Games: Chromium B.S.U.

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs been a long time since I offered up a
| nice Linux game for the Ghacks audience. So
| I thought, today I will introduce them to
| one of my favorite Linux time killers
| Chromium B.S.U. When I first discovered
| this game itâs original title was simply
| Chromium. Obviously this was  a serious
| conflict of interest with Google. I have a
| feeling the name change (adding the B.S.U.)
| was due to release of the now-famous Google
| browser.


Five best free Linux games of 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Best is subjective. My best may not be your
| best. Still, I wanted to share with you my
| perception of the best Linux games you can
| have installed on your machine, in year
| 2010, Gregorian Calendar. These games offer
| an unrivaled mix of storyline, attention to
| detail and a balance between realism and
| plain ole fun. These are more than just
| games you will play for a few minutes and
| then toss away forever. These are games
| that you will keep returning to, even if
| they sit abandoned on the digital shelf for
| a a few months or even years. They are
| special.


Heroes of Newerth - Charge!

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux games are many and varied. You can
| find pretty much anything you need, from
| simple arcades via racing all the way to
| expansive and elaborate tactical shooters.
| Still, one aspect of the Linux gaming scene
| is underplayed, this being the Real Time
| Strategy (RTS). For whatever reason, there's
| a lack of great strategy games for Linux.
| You will find some, but not as many as you
| would hope for.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
