I like Shattered Pixel Dungeon. You do need Java Runtime Edition (JRE) to run it.

thanks for answering. Please a game without java or browser or plugins. Not everybody wants to install java or plugins.

For each game proposed, I will try to run it in xenial and update the first message to have a list of games.
I have a small list already to test : 0ad, gnome chess, torcs, tux kart, xonotic...

Radialapps ported the RPG Exit Fate to linux. That transition has not been flawless, so there's a snag here and there, but it is playable. I enjoyed it anyway. It's pretty much a self contained package.

Arx Libertatis is a cross-platform, open source port of Arx Fatalis, a 2002 first-person role-playing game / dungeon crawler developed by Arkane Studios.
http://arx-libertatis.org/

Get the linux portable download:
http://arx-libertatis.org/files/arx-libertatis-1.1.2-linux.tar.xz

You will also need the demo for the data files:
https://www.fileplanet.com/archive/p-3356/Arx-Fatalis-Demo-English-Updated/download

This is 32bit though.

The is also The Dark Mod http://www.thedarkmod.com/main/ which is a Thief inspired game on a newer engine. 32 and64bit, Linux and Windows.
Won't run as root, but 'su spot' does it for me.
On my 2ghz Core Duo laptop, it struggled until I got the Nvidia drivers installed (on upupBB).

Originally based on the XCom: Enemy Unknown classic. Same principle; you have a team going on missions, shooting aliens, turn-based action. Collect artifacts, research, manufacture.


Warzone2100

http://wz2100.net/



Strategic warfare. Build bases, fortifications, war machines.

I am currently working on a computer with a videocard with no 3D capability whatsoever, so playing these games is simply not possible for me right now.
However, I have played both Warzone2100 and UFO:AI on another computer with Precise PUppy 5.7.1. In fact, I still have an sfs here of Warzone2100 if anyone's interested.

So these games CAN be played on Puppy Linux.

But I am not going to go through the motions of creating a ready made playable PET package or SFS for Xenial just to prove a point.

You'll just have to accept that it takes a little bit of extra effort on your part to be able to play games on Puppy Linux.

Here are the resources ready for download for the UFO:AI game:

https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=ufoai&searchon=names

Here are the resources ready for download for Warzone2100:

https://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=warzone2100

You may find there are certain dependencies required. That too, is something you need to accept.

Here is a game package that I rely on that includes around
20 games or so. It's a 32-bit package, and I've used it in
64-bit OSs after installing the 32-bit compatibility libraries.

These are very simple games, including: asteroids,
gem-matching game, a bubble shoot game, a tetris game,
yahtzee, hangman, and a good number of card games such
as hearts, freecell, spider solitare, and others.

This is questionable, because I've not been too successful in
Xenial64 after installing the 32-bit compatibility libraries, in
running this package. In any case, maybe you'll find out what
I'm not doing to make it useable in Xenial64. I've used it in
Tahrpup64. It loads seemlessly in any 32-bit distro.

There are pet versions of this package, but I'm going to
focus on the sfs for simplicity.

I'm linking to the file here:

tcl_tk_games.sfs (3.12 Mbytes)

Also, I believe the package was derived from this site which
includes many more games, here:

http://blog.tcl.tk/898

Hope this helps, Kelikaku B'H.
