Quantz for Ubuntu

A sign that Ubuntu is being taken seriously as a gaming platform is this beta from Gamerizon for Quantz, a slick 3D puzzle game. I love the over the top graphics and sound. The demo allows you to play three levels. Well, at least its DRM free :). Enjoy.

Some retro Ubuntu playthings

The ScummVM game engine is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this:  ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed.    Two circa 1995 games from LucasArts   I found in the Hardy repository are Beneath a Steel Sky and Flight of the Amazon Queen. All you have to do is search for ScummVM in Synaptic and the games will come up.
