Penumbra: Overture is a first person adventure game which focuses on story, immersion and puzzles.

Penumbra Overture is a first person adventure game which focuses on story, immersion and puzzles. Instead of using violence to progress the player has to use his/her wits to guide Philip on his quest to unravel the past
Like all good nightmares, Philip's begins with something all too real - his mother's death. The days following the funeral are characterized by nothing, save for an incessant feeling of abandonment. Until, that is, he receives a letter from a dead man.

Philip's father left before he was born, taking his reasons with him. Now, here he is, opening up the door from beyond the grave. That door leads to more questions, and those questions lead to Greenland. Philip follows the clues - they're all he has left.
On leaving the final signs of human civilization behind him, in search of the location mentioned in his father's ambiguous notes, Philip wonders if he's left some part of his humanity behind as well. Soon, that will be the least of his fears.

Now, Philip needs your help. He's found an inexplicable metal hatch, in the middle of a frozen wasteland. Inside, is something yet more unfathomable.
Step into the unknown.
The Game.
Penumbra is a first person horror adventure focussing on story, immersion and puzzle solving. Violence and combat is hardly an option - the player has to use wits to guide Philip through his final test, and this makes the series unique in offering a truly dangerous and terrifying experience.
Played from a first person perspective and powered by a 3D engine utilising cutting edge technology, Penumbra is a true advancement to the adventure genre. The unique physics system allows for true environmental interaction: The player can open drawers, pull levers, pick up objects and manipulate those objects in 3D space - all using natural mouse movements, creating a highly interactive and immersive game world.

The Penumbra series' central character, Philip, is realistically vulnerable, while enemies are fierce and intelligent. Any object can be picked up and thrown in defence, but the end result might only be to buy some time, or more likely, anger enemies further. Avoiding, outwitting and sneaking past enemies entirely provide the best chance of survival.

Penumbra will put players on edge like never before as they explore bizarre and mysterious environments, the unknown awaiting them behind every corner. The world is detailed both in terms of graphical fidelity and narrative character - The Penumbra Series is a horrific experience that will grip players from its opening thrills to it chilling denouement.
penumbra overture start
While the game received mostly favorable reviews, it was criticized on a number of fronts, especially for its rather crude combat system and sometimes confusing or poorly implemented story elements, causing Eurogamer to comment that the game would "do better if it relied on its own inherent spookiness rather than trying to create artificial atmosphere by banging on about a character we don't have any real reason to care about, something about his dad, destiny and miners writing stupidly long notes to themselves about their imminent horrible deaths." It did however praise the character of Red, stating that he was "the most compelling element of the narrative, and wonderfully acted."

GameSpot in its review commented on the combat by saying that fights are often "so frenetic that it's almost impossible to control your movements" and that "it would have been much more sensible for the camera to lock on and move with enemies." It did however note that it did help differentiate Overture from more action oriented titles, saying that the "end result of the difficult combat is that you feel like an average Joe who wants to avoid zombie dogs with glowing eyes, not a video game superman out to stack dead canines like cordwood.

Amphetamine is a cool Jump'n Run game offering some unique visual effects.

AmphetamineAmphetamine is a cool Jump'n Run adventure game witch offers some unique visual effects Amphetamine was created by Jonas Spillmann.

I ported it from Windows to Linux. It will also work under some versions of Solaris on SPARC. The current version uses SDL.

The Unix/SDL version is maintained by Lukas Loehrer.

You can customize most controls by copying the file user.conf from the Amphetamine data directory to your ~/.amph directory. Modify it to suit your needs.

Many aspect of the gameplay are controlled by the file amph.conf in the main Amphetamine directory. Of most interest are the options right at the beginning of the file that control the physics. If the game seems to slow/fast to you, changing some of those values may help.

DGA Mode:
Use the option --fullscreen to enable DGA fullscreen support. I cannot test this myself, because my X Server does not support it properly. I am grateful for any feedback regarding this option.

· Simple Direct Layer (SDL) v1.0 or newer

1. Make sure SDL is installed correctly.
2. Have a look at the 'Makefile' and edit it where appropriate.
- 'USE_LIB_XPM=FALSE' if you don't have libXpm
3. Type 'make'. This should build the Amphetamine binary. You can safely ignore the numerous warnings. If the compilation fails, you are in in trouble. Try to tweak the 'Makefile'. You have to delete '-funroll-loops' if you are still using gcc
4. Become root and type 'make install'. This will install the binary to the directory specified in the makefile (default is '/usr/local/games/amph'). It will also create a symbolic link.
5. You have managed the difficult bit. Now, you have to install the data files required by the game. Get 'amphetamine-${VERSION}' an do:
- cd /usr/local/games
- bzip2 -cd ~/ | tar xv
(Note: the exact commands depend on your syste configuration)
6. type 'amph' in order to run the game and have fun!

Frozen Bubble arcade game with colorful animated penguin eyecandy.

frozen-bubble-logoFrozen Bubble is a full-featured, colorful animated penguin eyecandy, 50 levels of 1p game, hours and hours of 2p game, professional quality 20-channels musics, 15 stereo sound effects, 7 unique graphical transition effects 

Frozen-Bubble is a clone of the popular "Puzzle Bobble" game, in which you attempt to shoot bubbles into groups of the same color to cause them to pop.

It features 100 single-player levels, a two-player mode, music and striking graphics. 

The game mainly consists of firing randomly chosen bubbles across the board. If the shoot ends up having a clump of at least 3 bubbles of the same color, they all pop.

If some bubbles were sticked only on the popping clump, they fall. In 1-player mode, the goal is to pop all the bubbles on the board as quickly as possible. In 2-players or network mode, you have to get your opponent to "die" before you.

The default controlling mechanism is through the keyboard, but you can play with a joystick or a joypad.

Features include:

    100 levels of 1 player games
    Hours and hours of 2 player games
    Network multiplayer
    Level editor
    3 professional quality 20-channel music
    15 stereo sound effects
