FREE or OPEN-SOURCE GREAT UBUNTU LINUX GAMES !!!
IDEA: Bookmark, Copy/Paste or Save entire Webpage to your PC – I did it!
NOTE 1: Links with: “download: Deb” refers to .deb (Debian packages), they are Debian / Ubuntu standard!
NOTE 2: Links with: “download: Run” refers to .run packages (Very compatible with Ubuntu (and other distros), the most of cases…)
NOTE 3: Packages in *.tar *.bz (etc…) are equivalent to *.zip (Winzip) or *.rar (Winrar) files in Windows.
