Debian Junior Project
Summary
Games-arcade
Debian Jr. arcade games

This metapackage will install arcade games suitable, in the opinion of the contributors to the Debian Jr. project, for children of all ages. Mastering most of these games requires dexterity and cognitive skills usually developed only in the older children (around ages 5 to 8). But the youngest children may enjoy watching older players, or just poking randomly at the controls, depending on the game.

Description

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Junior to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Junior mailing list

You play Bouncy the Hungry Rabbit. You're in a garden with yummy veggies and a farmer who's not keen on you eating them. You can hide (and move around) under the ground.

Bouncy was written so it could be enjoyed by the author's daughter, who was about to turn 3, and by older gamers. Hence it's not a violent game and "easy" is really, really easy, and "hard" is challenging.

Cuyo, named after a Spanish relative adjective, shares with tetris that things fall down and how to navigate them. When enough "of the same type" come "together", they explode. The goal of each level is to blow special "stones" away, you start with. But what "of the same type" and "together" means, varies with the levels.

A game of musical skill and fast fingers. The aim of the game is to play guitar with the keyboard as accurately as possible.

Players must press buttons to keep in time with the rhythm of the music, shown by markers on screen. An official online high score list allows players to show off their skills to competitors around the globe.

The game comes with an easy to understand tutorial to get players started, and a song editor lets players edit and compose songs for use in the game.

lbreakout2 is a game similar to the classics breakout and xboing, featuring a number of added graphical enhancements and effects. You control a paddle at the bottom of the playing-field, and must destroy bricks at the top by bouncing balls against them.

lbreakout2 is a complete rewrite of the game "lbreakout". Users of lbreakout probably want to install this.

You control a space ship in a vertically scrolling window and shoot enemies. If you kill the boss enemy which appears at the end of each stage, or if you can survive till the boss enemy gets bored with you and escapes, you can go to the next stage.

xsoldier has a unique feature --- the "not shooting" bonus. You can get a pretty good score by not pressing the shoot button. After all, if the game is a simple kill-everything and shooting is always a good thing, why do you have to press a shoot button? You can play xsoldier as a simple kill-everything (and it is the best way to survive), but if you care your score, you need to kill all enemies with a minimum number of bullets.
