Game: Cortex Command
Good game, but it is not finished yet. There is no campaign, the survival mode freezes every 2-3 seconds. But the physics and AI is nice :)
Game: Urban Terror
It is nice and playable. There are bunch of great maps, and if you get on a server that is suitable for your skill it is lots of fun!
There are plenty servers to choose from.
Graphics are old, and weapons do not offer much variability, but its fun!
Game: Kobo Deluxe
Very true. I'm at level ~50 and it takes me like 50 games to pass to next level.
Game: Dragons Tale
If everyone could generate coins in a matter of minutes, then the currency wouldn't have much value, ey? At the moment, it takes a couple of weeks to get a batch; it is much more efficient to run it on your GPU with OpenCL/CUDA.
Or you could get coins by offering a service on one of the many bitcoin marketplaces, or even just buy them from one of the many exchanges ($0.2 per coin at the moment), and then you don't even have to bother with the client (although disabling generation, and keeping it as a local wallet means that you have full control of your money)
Now with official linux build:

Game: Dragons Tale
I have tried this out, but there is nothing you can do without bitcoins at the moment.
I have set up the bitcoin client, to get some of this wonky currency, but it hasn't "made" any coins yet.
Furthermore, on Ubuntu 10.10, it uses 100% of my 3 cores, quickly overheating my machine. I can only run the client safely with one core.
Actually the 32 bit binaries work just fine with ia32libs on 64bit.
I quite liked the original game, but many little flaws and the outdated resolution made it not so funny to play on my machine. They have been working on many of those "papercuts" maintaining the original look-and-feel of the game.
In my opinion they are doing a fine job with openclonk. I am not happy of the Win-centric development of a game named Open-something, but hey, if it works on Linux I don't have much to complain about.
