For some reason search phrase 'ollie' does not find "Go Ollie!" game

If my sources are correct, this game started out on /a/
I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only is it an engaging game, but it also uses renpy.

Game: Freedoom

That is strange, if you install freedoom for debian, prboom and timidity are dependencies and are installed with freedoom. I would have expected the same for ubuntu.
Anyway, prboom seems to be the right choice.

???

So, the single-click-install-for-ubuntu installs 'freedoom' project, but that is only a WAD data file. How to play that ? What to install next to play it ? Recommended are 'prboom' or 'doom-engine', but which to use ?

So I installed 'prboom', and now it looks better, that's something that can be played. So I run it and get hangup in few seconds. What now ? So I google for solution, and I find that on Ubuntu Hardy it just happends. One fix is to install 'timidity' MIDI music package, other is to play without sounds with "prboom -nosound". ( https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/prboom/+bug/139955 )

This should be added to installation information.

Which doom engine do you use ? prboom or something else ?

Game: Jewel Twist

;) Well, the term PC doesn't refer to a Windows PC only, but is rather a description of the hardware than the operating system. We just assume its a windows PC and in most cases we are right ;) But in this case the terms Mac and PC are misleading and it should rather reference the OS than the Hardware. Changed.

Heh, I find the blurb rather entertaining.. "For Mac and PC!" on a linux games site (yes I know it has a port, but the blurb should be updated to reflect that :P )

Game: Kobo Deluxe

Yes, Kobo is great game, but at the higher levels it becomes _really_ difficult (I was stuck at ~40-45th level)

wow

Wow, this is surely great game ! Simple, small, yet very catchy. Idea is simple, gameplay is very repetitive, but yet I played it already for few hours and I plan to play it alot more ! (Currently on at level 21).

Good to relieve stres, easy to install (ubuntu), easy to play, and has nice graphics.
