I found a blog page with some neat little games that run from the command line. Granted, these will probably only appeal to the hard-core users/gamers because, well, after all they are command line driven.
 
But I thought they were pretty neat.

Top 10 Command Line Games For Linux

 

Anybody know of any other fun or unique Linux games?

 

.

 

I'm talking about other games besides Steam - those games are sort of a given. Give me Half-Life or give me death! :P

Heres a good one that also teaches you to use terminal.

 

 

Bandit

The Bandit wargame is aimed at absolute beginners. It will teach the basics needed to be able to play other wargames. If you notice something essential is missing or have ideas for new levels, please let us know!

Note for beginners

This game, like most other games, is organised in levels. You start at Level 0 and try to “beat” or “finish” it. Finishing a level results in information on how to start the next level. The pages on this website for “Level <X>” contain information on how to start level X from the previous level. E.g. The page for Level 1 has information on how to gain access from Level 0 to Level 1. All levels in this game have a page on this website, and they are all linked to from the sidemenu on the left of this page.

That just might be very useful. I need to sharpen up on the Linux command line, and anything that might make it fun will help even more!

That's awesome, Gary! First game on the list is The Battle for Wesnoth. One of the first games I played on my MacBook Pro around 7 or 8 years ago. Can't believe that's still around and going strong. I'll definitely have to check out some of the others (for educational and research purposes only, I swear!) :P

 

Makes me wonder if FreeCiv is still around... :whistle:

Well, this certainly has potential: Linux game database

 

Flight Sim, anyone? Limit Load

 

Also, after some reading and some videos, this one looks like it might be very promising: 0 A.D.
