2017 - Top 16 Best Popular Free Linux Games For Installing on Peach OSI

FGO! and FLIGHTGEAR

​FGO! is a totally free, simple and fast front end essential for the free Flight Gear flight simulator which allows you to launch Flight Gear from an easy to use GUI. FGo! allows you to easily select the aircraft, airport and scenario. What really distinguishes it from other such applications is the text window allowing you to write any other, more advanced command line options that will be passed to FlightGear. This is similar to editing the .fgfsrc configuration file. FlightGear Flight Simulator (often shortened to FlightGear or FGFS) is a sophisticated free, completely open-source flight simulator framework, created by volunteers. This game program runs much better on a 64bit machine and has been tested in Peach OSI Barebones and The Works. Test was conducted with an I7 PC and a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro flight stick. Flying with a keyboard and a mouse is possible. Be sure to download both the FGO! app and the FlightGear game. The FGO! app will allow you select one of several preloaded airplanes and it will allow you to set where your flight will begin. You can choose from just about any airport in the world. More airplanes can be installed from the FlightGear website. We score this game a 9 out 10 and if you've never tried it we highly suggest that you give it a go. Both FGO! and Flightgear are available inside any of our Peach OSI versions from either the Gnome Software Center or the Ubuntu Software Center. Icon links to either of the software centers are always available on the bottom dock of any Peach operating system.

Flight Gear Manual

What others say about FlightGear:

An excellent flight simulator, better than many commercial flight simulators which I played in the past.  Runs well with all the shading effects enabled on my PC running 64bit Peach OSI Barebones.

If the game crashes before fully loading, make sure your graphics card is working properly. This game has some excellent graphics, the controls are VERY in depth.  It's a pretty detailed flight sim, not just for your average PC gamer. The help menus seem to be a bit lacking, since the game is so detailed. If you're looking for a good full on flight sim, I recommend this game.

FGFS installs and runs great on Peach 16.04.  It does require a decent graphics card to work well.  Mine is nothing special.  

 

0 A. D.

 

0 A.D. is a free, open-source, cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. It's a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of twelve ancient civilizations, each depicted at their peak of economic growth and military prowess. The twelve factions are: Three of the Hellenic States (Athens, Sparta and Macedonia), two of the kingdoms of Alexander the Great's successors (Seleucids and Ptolemaic Egyptians), two Celtic tribes (Britons and Gauls), the Republican Romans, the Achaemenid Persians, the Iberians, the Carthaginians, and the Mauryan Indians. Each civilization is complete with substantially unique artwork, technologies and civilization bonuses. Developed using Pyrogenesis, a game engine custom-built to suit our needs, 0 A.D. will give players a rich and entertaining real-time gaming experience. 0 A.D. is portable, running not only on Windows, like most games, but also on Linux and Mac OS X. We believe free, OS software like 0 A.D. encourages sharing, learning and creativity. That's why we have made the code and data available under the GPL license, and released the art, sound and documentation under CC-BY-SA. Modifying the game's data files is as simple as editing JavaScript and XML files, so anyone can learn how the game was developed and share their own contribution to the 0 A.D. world. 0 A.D. is being developed by Wildfire Games, a community of volunteer, hobbyist game developers from all over the world. 0 A.D. has been an open source project since July 2009. We score this game a 8.5 out 10 and if you've never tried it we highly suggest it but be aware that it can be highly addictive! 0 A.D. is available inside of any our Peach OSI versions from the Gnome Software Center or the Ubuntu Software Center. Icon links to either of the software centers are always available on the bottom dock of any Peach operating system.

0 A.D. Game Manual

What others say about 0 A.D. :

Great game... reminds me of some of the strategy games i used to play back in the day.... Empire Earth ect...I understand that the game is still in development but nice to see on Ubuntu. If i could game on Peach OSI  I'd get rid of Windows forever. Got a partitioned HD. One side windows (only for gaming) and the other side Peach OSI. 

The game is total fun, I played the beta version and it needs more features but I totally liked it.

My favorite game ever. Keep developing it! 

 

HEDGEWARS

Each player controls a team of several hedgehogs. During the course of the game, players take turns with one of their hedgehogs. They then use whatever tools and weapons are available to attack and kill the opponents' hedgehogs, thereby winning the game. Hedgehogs may move around the terrain in a variety of ways, normally by walking and jumping but also by using particular tools such as the "Rope" or "Parachute", to move to otherwise inaccessible areas. Each turn is time-limited to ensure that players do not hold up the game with excessive thinking or moving. Hedgewars has a large variety of tools and weapons and they are available for players during the game: (Partial List) Grenades, Cluster Bombs,  a Bazooka, UFO, Homing Bee, Shotgun, Desert Eagle, Fire Punch, Baseball Bat, Dynamite, Mine, Rope, Pneumatic pick and Parachute). Most weapons, when used, cause explosions that deform the terrain, removing circular chunks. The landscape is an island floating on a body of water, or a restricted cave with water at the bottom. A hedgehog dies when it enters the water (either by falling off the island, or through a hole in the bottom of it), it is thrown off either side of the arena or when its health is reduced typically from contact with explosions toward zero (the damage dealt to the attacked hedgehog or hedgehogs after a player's or CPU turn is shown only when all movement on the battlefield has ceased). We score this game a 8.0 out 10 and it is fun for all ages! Hedgewars is available inside of any our Peach OSI versions from the Ubuntu Software Center. Icon links to either of the software centers are always available on the bottom dock of any Peach operating system.

Hedgewars Weapons Manual

What others say about Hedgewars:

This is a great Worms-themed game, better than i expected. The only thing that I would change is some animations and the explosions. The jumps could be better but the game is already awesome with those features improved it would have the same quality and gameplay that the better Worms games give to you, but Hedgewars is free.

Ingenious little game! Some options are difficult to figure out, but a very fun game overall.

This is a great game, which provides hours of fun even if you haven't played worms. The sounds and music are great and the graphics are similar to those of worms world party.

SuperTuxKart FAQ Manual

What other says about SuperTuxCart :

I've never seen such a great game on linux! Seeing one is very rare. This game reminds me of Super Mario Cart! I have to admit though, I think this one is a bit better than Mario Cart! This game has great graphics that just keep on improving, it's also the first 3D game on Linux (besides steam games)! This game should keep being improved, and also add online multiplayer!

This game is the better than any Mario Kart game I have ever played. I've always loved racing games, including Mario Kart and a few lesser known ones, and this one took first place... won the race. Amazing.

Good tracks. Good music. Enjoyable game. Collisions are weird, but that doesn't have a major impact on the gameplay.

Battle for Wesnoth Manual

What others say about Battle for Wesnoth :

With each new major version of Wesnoth released, a review at TuxArena undoubtedly follows. Battle for Wesnoth is one of the flagship open-source games, with a huge, dedicated community and an almost unmatched feature-completeness among the open-source games.

Battle for Wesnoth comes with everything you could ask: single-player campaigns and custom games, multi-player games, scenarios and campaigns, great 2D artwork, well-crafted music themes and campaign stories, add-ons, scripting, a map editor, wonderful help system, and a dedicated community. It’s completely free and open-source, licensed under the GPLv2 and actively developed. New bug fix versions are released every now and then, and new major versions, with ground-breaking changes occur every two years or so.

A new faction, Khalifate, has been introduced in this version of Wesnoth. Of course, when creating a game you can choose the Default Era only or Default Era + Khalifate. Since the included six factions already in Wesnoth were there since the beginning of time, players may find Khalifate not as balanced as the well-known factions, so offering it separately when playing a game is a good option. As always, one can download tens more factions and eras from the add-on server.

What others say about Battle for Lincity :

I love this game. This is a great time-waster and you will be motivated to keep trying to do a better job than your last save. The graphics are a little old but honestly I prefer it to the NG version of this game. I recommend this game if you like city-builder games and you have a taste for the old-school.

A classic simcity like game.

In comparison with Other City simulation game  this is simCity Deluxe . This game would have potential to be the best game in its arena!!!

 

BZFLAG

BZFlag is a 3D multi-player multi platform tank battle game that allows users to play against each other in a network environment. There are five teams: red, green, blue, purple and rogue (rogue tanks are black). Destroying a player on another team scores a win, while being destroyed or destroying a teammate scores a loss. Rogues have no teammates (not even other rogues), so they cannot shoot teammates and they do not have a team score. There are two main styles of play: capture-the-flag and free-for-all. In capture-the-flag, each team (except rogues) has a team base and each team with at least one player has a team flag. The object is to capture an enemy team's flag by bringing it to your team's base. This destroys every player on the captured team, subtracts one from that team's score, and adds one to your team's score. In free-for-all, there are no team flags or team bases. The object is simply to get as high a score as possible. We score this game a 9.0 out 10 and it is fun for all ages! BZFlag is available inside of any our Peach OSI versions from the Ubuntu Software Center or the Gnome Software Center. Icon links to either of the software centers are always available on the bottom dock of any Peach operating system.

Trigger Info

What others say about Battle for Trigger :

I really enjoy the game. Takes some time to learn to handle the cars but that kinda adds to the reality experience. As for the controls and lack of music - well, I personally do not own a USB wheel and I usually play my own music. Good luck to the developers and thanks for a good game.

Wow! What a fun game to play . I must say, it is not like Mobil Championship rally or Need 4 Speed. But it takes away the boredom. I wish the sound was more realistic.

Pros: Gam play, Physics, Graphics and a camera angle that works! (unlike TORCS) Cons: Hyper fast acceleration/controls, no configuration.

Simple game, yet its amazing how much fun it is. Me and my brothers have spent hours lost in this game.

Graphics is as expected --  who would expect a fully 3D single-button game? Gaming is easy and straightforward. Useful for those quick games just to fill a few minutes of your life. Total Size vs Actual Fun. I'll give this a 4/5.

Such a good game. Works with Xbox Controller and is so simple and yet so fun to play. Always playing it with my sister. Get game.

Nexuiz Help and Cheat Codes

What others say about Nexuiz :

One of Linux's best 3D first person shooter games! Got hooked the first time I played. Good graphics,fast online game play and a all round fun game.

This game has a pretty good fps. Great find. shooting controls are relatively easy and after customizing them, the game becomes really fun. To exit, press F10 and the game will close.

It's a big bonus to find a game that's SO AWESOME and is supported on Peach 16.04! This is a quick to the point FPS, perfect for burning off steam while grinding away at work.  Most boards can be cleared in under 15 minutes. I tip my hat to the awesome team that put this together! Thank you so Much!

You can disable blood by looking at the cl_particle_blood settings and disable gore in multiplayer menu, also it has more graphical options than openarena or alienarena combined. It's very well put together and reminds me a bit of Unreal Tournament the way single player is set up. I am of a gratuitous nature over this find.

Okay it uses the keys on the keyboard. E,S,D,X for shooting...Then fires white pool ball. The computer mouse changes the pool table angle in relationship to the desktop computer mice. That took me only a few seconds on my own to figure out. Cool So Far.

Very Good.  Takes a short time to learn but the  movement of the balls is very realistic and the billiard room is realistic. NOT Virtual Pool but not Bad.

What others say about Micropolis :

Stupidly addictive. Last night I dreamt I was managing a city in Micropolis.

Surprisingly fun to play. I had to click 'save as' and select a different directory to save city. The sounds I thought were a little annoying but you can easily turn them off.

Still a classic!  Been too many years since I played the real thing, but seems the same as SimCity Classic, FUND works too (but watch out for the earthquakes!) Might be just me, but gameplay seems to run a bit fast, best to use at Slow speed.

A great little game, even after all these years.  Fortunately, the screen resizes itself perfectly once you start playing and there are absolutely no problems whatsoever. As for gameplay, well... It's the original SimCity, and as such it's just incredibly fun.

Love this game! Sure, it has a few annoyances BUT it is offline/online, free, fun and no limits on time, amount, etc. Take some time playing with the settings.  I suggest disabling the logging unless you want a lot of crap on your hard drive.

A great way to learn poker and play with other opponents. Gameplay is solid and easy to understand what's going on.

Seems like real life poker....really nice one and helpful too..no log in necessary in this game..just install it and play it.
