Mr. Is Nathan Sidwell www Download Xmris source 4.04 An X11 version of "Mr. Do", where you try to collect all the cherries. This is an X11 version of the "Mr. Do" arcade game: collect all the cherries on the board while avoiding the bad guys. You have a bouncy ball which you can throw at the enemies to kill them, and dropping apples crushes all the baddies underneath (gravity is great). The animation is smooth and the graphics are colorful. The game itself is well done, but the idea is showing its age. arcade free img on on off off off off 1998-09-01 bobz 1998-11-02 17:02:13 14 www 2001-03-26 22:54:31 off

XJewel David Cooper www Download XJewel binary www LSM Entry 1.0 A Tetris-like with falling jewels. Reminiscent of Columns for the Macintosh. XJewel is a falling-pieces game like Tetris, only jewels are removed from the board if three or more of the same jewel lie in a straight line. Interesting cascade-like effects can be achieved when the removal of jewels causes another set of jewels to line up, and so on. The original Columns game wasted far too much of my time; this is fairly comparable, lacking mainly digitized sounds. arcade free img on on off off off off 1998-09-01 bobz 1998-11-02 22:41:00 14 www 2001-01-07 22:11:33 off
VGA Tetris Adam P. Jenkins www www Download VGA Tetris binary 0.4 Tetris for Linux console. Tetris for Linux console. It's much better looking than Tetris for Terminals. The commands work like Nintendo Tetris, not the original Tetris (hold down space to drop a piece quickly, let go and it drops at the normal rate). This is just the standard tetris-like game, with no special pieces or features. Overall, a well-done game---the interface is pretty, and I didn't encounter any bugs. arcade free on off on off off off 1998-09-01 bobz 1998-11-02 18:39:20 14 www 2001-01-07 22:11:33 off
