A multiplayer aerial combat simulation. Players engage in air to air combat against one another using heat seeking missiles and cannons.

Main features include:

  • Simulation with 6 degrees of freedom.
  • Structural limit to the vertical positive/negative load.
  • Classic instruments, navigation and head-up display (HUD).
  • Several aircraft models implemented, both civil and military.
  • Two scenes provided, with many runways and radio stations.

acm runs under the X window system. This version of acm is implemented as a distributed simulation. It communicates information via the IEEE Distributed Interactive Simulation protocol.

BZFlag is a 3D multi-player multiplatform 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.

This package installs the BZFlag client compatible with 2.4.x BZFlag servers.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: bzflag-server

CannonSmash is a funny 3D table tennis game. It takes a while to get your hand at ease with the mouse+keyboard manipulations. But once you're used to the technique, you can feel like playing a real game. It is playable against the computer or through a network.

Since csmash relies on OpenGL-compatible rendering, it is best experienced with a 3D accelerator card, although software rendering in wireframe mode should be sustainable.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: csmash-demosong

Cultivation is a game about a community of gardeners growing food for themselves in a shared space.

Cultivation is quite different from most other games. It is a social simulation, and the primary form of conflict is over land and plant resources. There is no shooting, but there are plenty of angry looks. It is also an evolution simulation. Within the world of Cultivation, you can explore a virtually infinite spectrum of different plant and gardener varieties.

You are required to build and maintain a city. You must feed, house, provide jobs and goods for your residents. You can build a sustainable economy with the help of renewable energy and recycling, or you can go for broke and build rockets to escape from a pollution ridden and resource starved planet, it's up to you. Due to the finite resources available in any one place, this is not a game that you can leave for long periods of time. This game is similar to the commercial simulation game with a similar name.

This game simulates building and managing a whole city. The goal of the game is to build and design a city. The player can mark land as being zoned as commercial, industrial, or residential, add buildings, change the tax rate, build a power grid, build transportation systems and many other actions, in order to enhance the city.

Micropolis is the GPL-licensed version of SimCity.

OpenCity is 3D city construction simulator. You can build some zones of housing, trading and industry, electric plant and roads. Besides you can also raise or lower the terrain. OpenCity is similar in spirit to other city construction games, heading towards a classic SimCity feeling, although with some additional features. It is not intended to be a clone of any famous city simulator.

OpenTTD is a reimplementation of the Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe" with lots of new features and enhancements.

OpenTTD is playable with the free graphics files from the openttd-opengfx package and optional sound files from the openttd-opensfx package (which is in non-free). Alternatively, OpenTTD can use the graphics files from the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe game (See README.Debian on how to set this up).

The Emilia Pinball Project is a pinball simulator for Linux and other Unix systems. There are only two levels to play with, but they are very addictive.

You can play with two types of boards and keep high scores.

Works with OpenGL and needs hardware acceleration. See requeriments on README file.

In this simulation, you play the part of robot. Your task is to complete the simulation by finding kitten, as is your destiny, and indeed your wont. You (robot) are represented by the # character, and you move around with the arrow keys touching things. If the thing you touch is kitten, you get a cute little animation (which was cuter in the DOS version) and the simulation ends. Otherwise, you get a brief description of what it is you touched.

Tired of scores indicating things destroyed or lives snuffed? Try something different -- fly a helicopter around and rescue people in distress. If you were in trouble wouldn't you want someone to rescue you?

This game is intended for players of all audiences, but especially for mature players who want to get away from the violence and still retain a level of precise challenge. Flight difficulty can be lowered for beginners (regardless of mission type), and graphics minimized to suit slower computers (minimum Pentium 166 with no graphics acceleration).

You are an AI. Your goal is to acquire the necessary knowledge to become the singularity. You do this by building and taking over computers, whose processing power you can use for research, and by using robots, which allow you to manipulate the outside world. At the same time, you must elude the notice of humankind, who will destroy you if they find out about your existence.

Your objective is to drive your car along an obstacle course. Success depends on total control of the car. If you want to master it, try to have the laws of physics work with you, not against you.

The game was formerly known as Sturmbahnfahrer.

Light Speed! is an OpenGL-based program which illustrates the effects of special relativity on the appearance of moving objects. When an object accelerates past a few million meters per second, these effects begin to grow noticeable, becoming more and more pronounced as the speed of light is approached. These relativistic effects are viewpoint-dependent, and include shifts in length, object hue, brightness and shape.

The moving object is, by default, a geometric lattice. 3D Studio and LightWave 3D objects may be imported as well. Best of all, the simulator is completely interactive, rendering the exotic distortions in real-time!

This is a client for the multi-player game of Netrek.

Netrek is probably the first video game which can accurately be described as a "sport". It has more in common with basketball than with arcade games or Quake. Its vast and expanding array of tactics and strategies allows for many different play styles; the best players are the ones who think fastest, not necessarily the ones who twitch most effectively. It can be enjoyed as a twitch game, since the dogfighting system is extremely robust, but the things that really set Netrek apart from other video games are the team and strategic aspects. Team play is dynamic and varied, with roles constantly changing as the game state changes. Strategic play is explored in organized league games; after 6+ years of league play, strategies are still being invented and refined.

The game was created in 1988, and still has players, including some people who have been playing for nearly as long as the game has existed.
