with hex-a-hop:

Quote:
The objective is simply to destroy all the green hexagonal tiles on each of the 100 levels. As you progress through the game, more types of tiles are introduced which make things more difficult and interesting (hopefully).


http://www.aceinternet.co.uk/~mokona/

run the game by typing hexahop, or clicking on /usr/bin/hexahop.

(N.B. the game needs SDL libraries, and when it starts it complains about not finding certain save.dat files, but still seems to run OK).

Muggins, thank you. My 4-year-old grand daughter will greatly appreciate this one. If you have any more games for pre-schoolers up your sleeve, I would appreciate passing them on to her Puppy computer.

hi pistoi0,

have you looked at gcompris? it's quite large, but may be worth considering. mu has it on his site:

Muggins, yes, indeed, Edu-Pup is the basis for Carolyn's puppy. Hexahop will be joining that lineup, as will as your Kcheckers game. They both got the seal of approval this weekend. Wink

some others that you could do a search for, on the forum, are sdllopan, berusky, syasokoban, qhalma, xmahjongg, tworld, toppler, xye, xawele and seahaven. the last one, seahaven, is a patience card game but involves a bit of strategy to get out.

pistoi0,

this jigsaw game could be fun for a child as well:

http://www.easton.me.uk/tcl/jigsaw/index.html

you need to download the file jigsaw.kit. and to run it you need this file:

http://www.equi4.com/pub/tk/8.4.9/tclkit-linux-x86.upx.bin

rename tclkit-linux-x86.upx.bin to tclkit, right-click on it & give it executable permissions, then move tclkit to /usr/bin.

then jigsaw.kit should run by just clicking. (if not, you can start on commandline with tclkit jigsaw.kit

the basic idea is that you can create, or download, pictures in .gif format, then create jigsaw pieces out of the picture, then put it back together.

also, if she's feeling more adventurous, you could try downloading and running squeak:

If she has broadband then www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies is very good

Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. I do feel adventurous myself and will try Squeak. (Seems Squeak has undergone some structural changes since rrkoothady made his wikka entry).

The BBC site appears to be right on the money. (Carolyn also has this preschooler entry from CBC: http://www.cbc.ca/kidscbc/).

I like Mosaic, too. I'll get the final verdict in a week or so when I make additions to her Puppy.

Incidentally, she is running Puppy on a Panasonic CF-17 Toughbook, with 196 mb Ram, and a Celeron processor at 300 mghz. It's booted up via Pup4Dos.

also, if you've did download tclkit to run jigsaw.kit, you could dload the tkgamepack.kit, which has 90, (or is it 89?), games.
