GNOME Games is a collection of sixteen small "five-minute" games in a variety of styles and genres for the GNOME desktop. Here you can find useful information about playing the games, and can contribute towards the development of them. Developers can check out the page for contributing to gnome-games. For all development related questions, contact the Gnome Games mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aisleriot: A compilation of over eighty different solitaire card games. Everything from favorites like Freecell and Klondike through to the hopelessly pointless Clock Patience.
Chess: A chess game which supports several chess engines, with 2D and optionally 3D support if OpenGL is present.
Sudoku: Gnome Sudoku is a logic game with a Japanese name that has recently exploded in popularity.
Five or more: Move balls around the grid and try and form lines. Once you form five in a row, the line disappears. Unfortunately more balls keep dropping in.
Four-in-a-row: Place disks one at a time and try to form a row of four. Tic-tac-toe for those who like to think.
Gnometris: The Russian game of falling geometric shapes. Need I say more ?
Iagno: The GNOME version of Reversi. The goal is to control the most disks on the board.
Klotski: A series of sliding block puzzles. Try and solve them in the least number of moves.
Mahjongg: A tile-based solitaire game with an oriental flavor. Remove tiles in matching pairs to dismantle elaborately designed stacks.
Mines: The popular logic puzzle minesweeper. Find mines on a grid using hints from squares you have already cleared.
Nibbles: Pilot a worm around a maze trying to collect diamonds and at the same time avoiding the walls and yourself. With each diamond your worm grows longer and navigation becomes more and more difficult. Playable by up to four people.
Robots: The classic game where you have to avoid a hoard of robots who are trying to kill you. Each step you take brings them closer toward you. Fortunately they aren't very smart and you also have a helpful teleportation gadget.
Same GNOME: "I want to play that game! You know, they all go whirly-round and you click on them and they vanish!" - Telsa.
