Debian Junior Project
Summary
Games-gl
Debian Jr. 3D Games (hardware acceleration required)

These games all use OpenGL libraries. They will not work without decent 3D graphics cards providing hardware-accelerated OpenGL.

While armagetron and gltron are different interpretations of the game depicted in the classic 3D-animated movie "Tron", Tux Racer is an all-original made-for-Linux 3D racing game. Unlike the standard blood-and-guts fare in the 3D games universe, all of these games are suitable for children.

Pravidlá sú jednoduché: jazdíte na svetelnej motorke (druh motorky, ktorá môže zatáčať iba v 90-stupňových uhloch a za sebou zanecháva nezastaviteľnú stenu), musíte sa vyhnúť narazeniu do stien a zároveň sa musíte pokúsiť donútiť protivníka, aby do nich narazil.

Myšlienka pochádza z Disneyho filmu „Tron“ z roku 1982. Ak ste sa niekedy chceli previezť na jednom z týchto rýchlych diablov z filmu, máte príležitosť.

Armagetron Advanced možno hrať proti počítaču, proti iným ľuďom po sieti alebo zmes oboch.

Hráte ako hladný zajačik Bouncy. Nachádzate sa v záhrade s chutnou zeleninkou a s farmárom, ktorý nie je nadšený z toho, že mu ju jete. Môžete sa skryť (a pohybovať) pod zemou.

Bouncy bol napísaný, aby sa s ním mohla zabaviť trojročn dcéra autora a staršie deti. Preto to nie je násilná hra a „jednoduchá“ obtiažnosť je skutočne jednoduchá a „ťažká“ je výzvou.

BZFlag je multiplatformná 3D hra vojny tankov pre viacerých hráčov, ktorá umožňuje hráčom hrať proti sebe v prostredí siete. Existuje päť tímov: červený, zelený, modrý, fialový a oranžový (zlé tanky sú čierne). Zničenie hráča z iného tímu sa počíta za víťazstvo a zničenie spoluhráča alebo zničenie spoluhráčom za prehru. Zlé tanky nemajú spoluhráčov (ani iné zlá tanky), takže nemôžu zničiť spoluhráča a ani nemajú tímové skóre.

Sú dva hlavné štýly hry - capture-the-flag a free-for-all. V capture-the- flag každý tím (okrem zlých) má základňu a každý tím s aspoň jedným hráčom má vlajku tímu. Cieľom je zajať vlajku nepriateľského tímu a priniesť ju do vlastnej základne. To zničí všetkých hráčov nepriateľského tmu, odčíta bod zo ich skóre a pridá bod vášmu tímu. Vo free-for-all neexistujú vlajky ani základne. Cieľom je jednoducho získať čo najvyššie skóre.

Tento metabalík nainštaluje klienta, server aj všeobecnú dokumentáciu ohľadne komunity bzflag, prispievania do bzflag atď.

Extreme Tux Racer (skrátene etracer) je jednoduchá OpenGL pretekárska hra s postavou Tuxa, maskota Linuxu. Cieľom hry je čo najrýchlejšie sa kĺzať dolu snehom a ľadom pokrytou horou a zároveň sa vyhýbať skalám a stromom, ktoré vás spomalia.

Zbierajte počas kĺzania heringy a iné dobroty, ale vyhnite sa rybím kostiam.

Táto hra je založená na GPl verzii známej hry TuxRacer.

Musíte mať fungujúcu akceleráciu 3D grafiky, inak táto hra pobeží dosť pomaly.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: extremetuxracer-extras

V tradícii hier Marble Madness a Super Monkey Ball, aj v Neverball vediete guľu naprieč nebezpečným teritóriom. Udržujte rovnováhu na úzkych mostoch, hľadajte cestu v bludiskách, vezte sa na pohybujúcich sa platformách, vyhýbajte sa odtlačovaniu a dostaňte sa do cieľa. Súťažte na čas a zbierajte mince, aby ste zarobili ďalšie gule.

Karts. Nitro. Action! SuperTuxKart is a 3D open-source arcade racer with a variety of characters, tracks, and modes to play. The aim is to create a game that is more fun than realistic, and provide an enjoyable experience for all ages.

Discover the mystery of an underwater world, or drive through the jungles of Val Verde and visit the famous Cocoa Temple. Race underground or in a spaceship, through a rural farmland or a strange alien planet. Or rest under the palm trees on the beach, watching the other karts overtake you. But don't eat the bananas! Watch for bowling balls, plungers, bubble gum, and cakes thrown by your opponents.

You can do a single race against other karts, compete in one of several Grand Prix, try to beat the high score in time trials on your own, play battle mode against the computer or your friends, and more! For a greater challenge, race online against players from all over the world and prove your racing prowess!

Trackballs is a simple game similar to the classical game Marble Madness on the Amiga in the 80's. By steering a marble ball through a labyrinth filled with vicious hammers, pools of acid and other obstacles the player collects points. When the ball reaches the destination it continues at the next, more difficult level - unless the time runs out.

This game is not intended to be a replica of Marble Madness but rather inspired by it. The game is also highly configurable by using a scripting extension (Guile) and it provides a simple editor by which new levels can easily be created.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: trackballs-data

It's bringing old style gameplay from DOS times back to the desktop with up to date graphics! Its gameplay is similar to old classics such as Amco's Kick Off and Sensible Software's Sensible Soccer.

The gameplay is designed to be quick, responsive and fun. You are always in control of the player closest to the ball. The ball is controlled via two different kick buttons - one for pass, and one for shoot. Aftertouch can be applied to shots by quickly pressing and holding the direction you want the ball to bend towards. Pushing in the opposite direction to what you kicked the ball makes it raise into the air, pushing in the same direction as the ball makes it dip towards the ground.
