Babaliba is a video-adventure with fast movements and frenetic action.

Babaliba is a Sinclair ZX Spectrum computer game programmed by Víctor Ruiz, founder of Dinamic, one of the great software companies of Spanish software "golden age", in 1985. It is part of the trilogy started with Saimazoom, followed by Babaliba and ended with the amazing Abu Simbel Profanation, starring Johnnie Jones.
Babaliba is a video-adventure with fast movements and frenetic action. Colourful and big sized graphics, not forgetting we are talking about a 1985 Spectrum game.

The goal of the game could be the script of a 50's decade adventures movie starred by Clark Gable, or more recently by Indy Jones (the character that "inspired" Johnnie): Bad guy kidnapps our friend and, obviously, we must rescue him and, by the way, pick up the treasure he is keeping in the palace and also kidnap his beautiful daughter. Easy? Let's try it.

Axis Runner project is a 3D game with a fast built-in graphics engine.

Axis Runner is a 3D game inspired by the Apple II game "Lode Runner". It features a built-in graphics engine and runs fine without hardware acceleration. All direction is relative as characters climb up on the walls and ceiling, reminiscent of the fighting scenes in movies such as "The Matrix".

This idea comes from some years ago; basically a 3D lode-runner type game with a weird topology: if the runner bumps into a wall he climbs up (like the fighting scenes in "The Matrix" or "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") but if he reaches an edge he falls, in the current downwards direction. I.e. the direction of gravity changes. To keep the world finite it is enclosed in a cube. Typically characters walk on the ceiling/up walls/pipes etc.

Atom Zombie Smasher is the perfect post-Iraq zombie game.

As a game, Atom Zombie Smasher is just a series of RTS matches. You’re harvesting resources from a map. Instead of fighting an enemy, you’re fighting time, because the resources go bad in a matter of seconds (these are very short matches).

You get three or four units, which makes Atom Zombie Smasher a bit of a puzzle game.

Sometimes you’ll get a perfect set of tools for the situation. Other times, you’re completely and utterly screwed. It’s all indie graphics — dots, really — strung together in a simple but effective campaign mode.

But that’s just the game part.

After the jump, there’s something more important going on in Atom Zombie Smasher.

Top 10 indie games of 2013.

We don't need to tell you that the gaming industry is currently experiencing an 'indie boom' -- the evidence has been piling up throughout 2011, with numerous developers at AAA studios leaving their jobs behind to work on exactly the kind of games they want to make.

You only have to look at the Independent Games Festival record number of entries to know indies mean business this year. This time around, nearly 570 games were entered into the competition, marking an increase of more than 45 percent compared to the previous year.

We say this every year, but we genuinely mean it -- having to choose just ten titles from the incredible batch of indie titles this year was not only next-to-impossible, but also excruciatingly heart-breaking, as we had to knock favorite after favorite off until there were only ten remaining.

But never fear, as a good number of those titles that we close, but just missed out on a top spot, have been compiled below the main list as honorable mentions.

Here are our picks for the top ten indie games of this year:

The Best Linux Games of 2013.

2013 was a huge year for Linux gaming with Valve’s continued commitment to the platform, encouraging words from big studios like Battlefield developers DICE, and Creative Assembly’s commitment to bringing Total War: Rome II to Linux next year.

Our list contains both indie titles and some of the most influential AAA titles to date. This list isn’t intended to be comprehensive nor anything other than our opinion.

All of the titles are available on Steam and/or the Ubuntu Software Center, so get your wallets and purses and prepare to throw some money at your screen!

Garry’s Mod

Prop or not?

Prop or not?

Garry’s Mod is a sandbox game with little to no objective in itself, but the magic is in all the props you can load up from a number of Source engine games and the growing number of mods created by the community.

One such mod is PropHunt – a hide-and-seek game where one team hides as various objects on a map and the other attempts to find the filing cabinet precariously perched on a secluded staircase.

It’s simple fun, yet the vast array of game mods – be it for prop hunting, spaceship building, or machinima recording – makes Garry’s Mod a fantastic addition to an avid Linux gamer’s collection.

Get Garry’s Mod on Steam

Half-Life 2

Theoretical physics has never been so cool.

Theoretical physics has never been so cool.

And speaking of the Source engine, Half-Life 2 might be the oldest game in the list, but is by far one of the most beloved both in Valve’s oeuvre and amongst all the games to come to Linux this year.

Half-Life 2 continues protagonist and theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman’s story from the first title in the series as he makes his way across a world ravaged by man and alien alike. Everything from physics puzzles to frighteningly agile headcrabs stand in your way, but the journey is still one of the most enthralling experiences in any game today.

The next title in the Half-Life series has a lot to live up to, but judging by the reception of one of the oldest titles to get a Linux port, Linux gamers are ready with crowbar and Gravity Gun in hand.

Get Half-Life 2 on Steam

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

amnesia-machine-for-pigs

When we reviewed Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs in September, we found the title’s atmosphere as nerve-wracking as the first and worth trudging through the easy puzzles to explore the Victorian surroundings and steampunk-like machinery.

One of the biggest wins was day one Linux support for a title in such a popular series. But the developers at Frictional Games have always been friends to Linux gamers, porting titles from their Penumbra series in 2007 and 2008 soon after launch.

Get Amnesia: AMfP on Steam

Metro: Last Light

metro-lastlight

Metro: Last Light is one the first AAA titles to come to Linux and relatively quickly to boot. Set in 2034 under the nuclear-devastated city of Moscow, Metro: Last Light twists the tropes of post-apocalyptic narratives into an intense first-person shooter experience.

Everything from ghosts to mutant arachnids and giant amoebas are prepared to make a normal day in post-apocalyptic Moscow a little less pleasant.

It’s not as tongue-in-cheek as the similarly post-apocalyptic Fallout series, but just as reflective of the brutal, yet sometimes touching, human experience in trying times.

Get Metro: Last Light on Steam

Starbound

starbound

Think of Starbound as Terraria or a 2D Minecraft with a real storyline and set in space. What’s not to love?

Much like Minecraft, you can hunt, mine, and build in the world, but unlike the popular 3D sandbox game, you can also travel to other planets and participate in an actual storyline. Your spacecraft starts off stranded in orbit and your first set of quests involves familiarising yourself with the gameplay mechanics and finding fuel for your ship before you can start exploring the procedurally generated planets. What’s more, the various monsters on each planet are also procedurally generated, so you’ll encounter some truly bizarre creatures along the way.

Starbound is an Early Access Game, so you’ll probably discover some broken mechanics (the bow and arrow are a bit troublesome to say the least) and experience a crash or two along the way. But it’s still a fun and featureful game despite being in beta.

Get Starbound on Steam

0 A.D.

Workers constructing buildings and picking berries.

Workers constructing buildings and picking berries.

0 A.D. has been available on Linux for several years, but we think it deserves a place in the list for all its accomplishments in 2013.

It’s the only free and open source title on the list and recently wrapped up a $33,251 fundraising drive – enough, they say, to hire one of their programmers for a full year. Though the game didn’t reach its more optimistic fundraising goals, that’s still $33,251 raised to support an open source project.

And more than anything, it’s fun. Fans of the Age of Empires style of real-time strategy will enjoy the work that’s gone into 0 A.D. over the years. The attention to detail is evident and though the title still has a ways to go, it only stands to improve with another dedicated programmer on board.

Get 0 A.D. on the Ubuntu Software Center

War in a Box: Paper Tanks

papertanks

Tower defence games are as common as Reversi or Minesweeper, but War in a Box: Paper Tanks adds a dose of charm to the addictive genre.

Its unique paper-craft aesthetic works extremely well, giving the 24 levels a tireless appeal as you play and replay each level. At $3.99 it’s an easy sell for anyone who enjoys casual tower defence games. It’s simple fun, but utterly addicting.

Get War in a Box: Paper Tanks

FEZ

I like fezes. Fezes are cool.

We reviewed FEZ back in September and the perspective-shifting 2D platformer is every bit as fun as a Pillsbury Doughboy-like character with a fez on makes it sound.

Jumping puzzles, mind-bending perspective puzzles, and gaming in-jokes all contribute to a title that stays fresh even when you’ve fallen off the map a dozen times or stood too close to a bomb when it goes off.

Get FEZ on Steam

Europa Universalis IV

europa-universalis-banner

Imagine Civilization with a bit more micromanagement, a big helping of history, and one gigantic difference: it’s on Linux!

Unlike the Civilization games, Europa Universalis titles are historical strategy, though by no means a play-by-play of history books. And instead of battling across thousands of years, EUIV only spans the years 1444–1821. But that doesn’t mean EU is any less fun or engaging as the longer running Civilization series.

EUIV plays out in real-time rather than in turns, so you’ll be pausing often to get a better view of your growing empire or your wealthy nation’s vast trade routes. The EU series can be intimidating to beginners given the scope of “grand strategy” gameplay, but if you ever wanted to play out the colonisation of the Americas or tweak the outcome of the Napoleonic Wars, it’ll be worth the effort.

Get Europa Universalis IV on Steam

Kentucky Route Zero

Kentucy-Route-Zero-1

Kentucky Route Zero is one of my favourite games of all time. It’s the most artistically-orientated title in the list and one that exemplifies the more poetic side of gaming in addition to all the AAA titles that we can to look forward to in 2014 and beyond.

Kentucky Route Zero brings the magical realism genre to point-and-click adventures, mixing the surreal with classic adventure game elements. You start out looking for an unknown address to deliver antiques to, but the narrative takes off in unexpected, often fantastical, directions from there.

It’s a game about discovery rather than achievements or saving a princess who’s inevitably in another castle. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea – nor will it fit everyone’s definition of a “game” – but it is one of the most meaningful and creative titles I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing.

Molecule Man is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game for a variety of 8-bit home computers.

Molecule Man is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game released by Mastertronic in 1986 for a variety of 8-bit home computers. A level editor is included which enables the player to design their own mazes.

Molecule Man is trapped in a radioactive maze and must reach the escape teleport before the radiation kills him.

Although Molecule Man looks at first glance like a simple isometric maze game, it is more sophisticated than 3D Monster Maze and more similar to Spectrum classics like Knightlore. The only way you can escape from the maze is by using the teleporter, but you can only use it only after you have collected all sixteen sections of the level's circuit board. To keep the radiation dose down, you also need to periodically take anti-rad pills.

molecule-man

You start the game with twenty of these, but you will quickly use them up, and must search the maze for anti-radiation pill vending machines. But of course, these machines need money to dispense pills. So you must also collect coins that are scattered around the maze. Also around the maze are bombs which can be used to destroy sections of the maze walls, allowing you access to new sections.

With fun, no-frills maze action, Molecule Man is a fun poor man's version of Knightlore. It was released originally as a budget title, and came with a nice maze editor. This Windows version is coded by Robin Thompson, the original designer himself, and released as freeware under the GNU General Public License. The gameplay remains identical to the 8-bit classic, down to the easy-to-use maze generator you can use to create your own mazes. If you like maze games, Molecule Man is well worth your time. Recommended!

MoleculeMan

Gameplay

The player controls the Molecule Man in his quest to escape within a time limit. He must find the teleport and repair it using 16 circuit board pieces that are scattered around the maze. Bombs must be purchased to blow open inaccessible areas. Meanwhile the radiation is killing him and health pills must be purchased to prolong his life.

Coins can be found lying around. These must be collected and taken to dispensers to purchase bombs and pills.

MOAGG is a 2D gravity game, combining the idea and fun of several existing games, such as Space Taxi and Gravity Force.

Moagg stands for "Mother of all gravity games". In this game you are pilot of a small space ship and have to navigate it through different caves by using the thrusters and rotating the ship. But besides gravity there are many other difficulties you have to master.

The game is strongly influenced by some classical cave flyers from the C64 and Amiga era such as "Space Taxi" or "Gravity Force". But Moagg is supposed to be more than just a clone of these games.

The "original" (which I now consider as "old") Moagg was based on C++ and SDL . Due lack of time and motivation to continue, the development ended with the 0.18 release in summer 2005. During this time I discovered the power of Java and thus started a Java-port of Moagg in the beginning of 2007.

Moagg_2

A level consists of a map file and an XML-file, describing decorative and game-specific items (obstacles, landing platforms, crates, etc.). Further, the XML-file contains a Rhino script defining what has to be done to complete the level. The map data is seperated from the level data. This way, a map file can be reused in different levels. See the documentation of maps , levels and level scripting for further reference.

Since map files are stored as custom binary format, it's recommended to use the tiled map editor together with the moagg plugin. Please refer to the download page to get it.

There's no special editor to create level files. In the future (when the XML schema definitions are finished) an XML-capable editor is recommended so the editor will help you with syntax-highlighting, auto-completion, etc. Please refer to the documentation of levels and level scripting .

You may also just take a look at the tutorial levels, since they show most of the available features.

Magnificent Gunbright is an abstract shooter; destroy the black ball. An Abstract Shooter Developed For Ludum Dare in 48 Hours.

You are the flashy white blob at the bottom, with the clump of other white blobs following you around.

You have the ability to fire the blobs from your cloud at the flashy blob surrounded by a cloud of black blobs at the top of the screen.

If a black blob and white blob collide, both are destroyed. The object is to hit the evil flashy blob at the top of the screen to destroy it.

Magnificent Gunbright

Falling from the top of the screen like rain is a steady supply of more blobs. If one of the blobs in your cloud touches a white blob that fell from the sky, even while shooting, the blob joins your cluster.

Falling from the bottom of the screen is black blobs, that your enemy can use to bulk himself up, as well. Blob rain does no damage to either party; you can tell that it's rain and not bullets because rain travels away from you.

Use the arrow keys to move, and the space bar to shoot.

Once you've destroyed one evil black blob, you will face another, more powerful one! And so on forever until you eventually die.

Destroy the evil black blobs and save the League of Confederated Planets!
