You think of an animal, and this package tries to guess it... when it's wrong, you teach it about your animal.

To be more flexible and help educational aspect this game does not contain an initial database. This also allows it to be used for non animals like guessing of tools or locations.

Atomix is an educational game designed for GNOME in which one has to build molecules, ranging from simple inorganic ones to some extremely complex organic ones, out of separate atoms.

The first levels can be rather easy, but added complexity always comes with the next level, so that several minutes (or much longer than that) can be spent on each single level.

TuxTyping is een spel om te leren typen met Tux, de Linux-pinguïn, in de hoofdrol. De speler laat Tux vissen opeten die vallen van de bovenkant van het scherm. Op elke vis staat een letter geschreven, wanneer de speler de juiste overeenkomende toets indrukt zal Tux de vis opeten. Het spel is bedoeld voor kinderen om te leren typen, maar het bevat ook moeilijkere niveaus die zelfs voor kinderen met typervaring een uitdaging zijn.

A simple educational game that simulates bouncing balls in a window. Gravity, elasticity, and ability to collide can all be adjusted.

Young children enjoy watching the balls bounce around the screen and are fascinated by the program. This is an ideal program for teaching rudimentary mouse skills to very young children.
