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

Chicken Invaders 4 Xmas Linux InterAction studios InterAction studios www www Save Christmas from an omelette-flavored doom 4.11 Save Christmas from an omelette-flavored doom <p>I remember the day of the invasion well. The memories still burn deeply, like spicy chicken wings. <p>They came without warning, squawking menacingly, their ruffled feathers darkening the sun. Invading intergalactic chickens, out to punish humanity for our oppression of their earthly brethren. <p>I instantly knew what had to be done. I dropped my half-eaten chicken burger and jumped in my cockpit. With a greasy finger I set my lasers to "extra crispy" and blasted off to intercept the fowl invaders. <p>It wasn't easy. Squawks, feathers flying, the smell of charred chicken everywhere. Three times they invaded, each time with increasingly devious plans. Three times I managed to push them back whence they came, and secure humanity a few more years as the dominant species of this planet. <p>After their last retreat, I headed for my local Space Burger to bask in the glow of my recent victory. Breathing a sigh of relief, I sat down to enjoy a double chicken-burger with crispy chicken wings on the side. <p>Little did I know that my greatest adventure was yet to come... arcade shareware 17.50 img off off off off off off 2011-12-13 4 2011-12-14 15:39:50 35841 www 900MHz CPU, DirectX 8.0 0000-00-00 00:00:00 off
