Notes about games available on Linux.
|The Battle for Wesnoth||also on: Android, OSX, Win, ?|
|BATTLETECH||also on: OSX, Win|
|Haven't played much so far, but am enjoying it. Turn-base tactical game.|
|Clairvoyance||also on: Mac, Win|
| Clairvoyance is a turn-based, asynchronous multiplayer game where you control a group of four robots trying to destroy your opponent's. The fun is in trying to predict what they'll do, and how things go wrong and right because of that :)
Never had any luck running it on Arch, but *buntus seem fine. Works perfect in WINE.
|Door Kickers||also on: OSX. Win|
|If you want Frozen Synapse with worse art direction, worse controls, no multiplayer, and leveling guff, and you have a hard-on for cops, then maybe Door Kickers is for you!|
|Freeciv||also on: Browser, Win, ?|
|Really hasn't clicked with me. I think it's mostly the lack of personality. You can choose from a great list of nations, but they're all the same, just a different flag.|
|Freedom Planet||also on: OSX, PS4, WiiU, Win|
|My favourite Sonic game :)|
|Frozen Synapse||also on: Win|
|Tight, turn-based tactical game. Really great as a play-it-when-you're ready asynchronous multi thing. Lots of flexibility with how you control your people, and for simulating the behaviours of your opponents'.|
|Frozen Synapse 2||also on: Win|
|Kentucky Route Zero||also on: Mac OS, PS4, Switch, Win, XB0|
|Mini Metro||also on: OSX, Win|
|Princess Remedy 2: In A Heap of Trouble||also on: OSX, Win|
|Like its Windows-only predecessor, Princess Remedy is a sweet adventure game where you go round healing creatures. Graphics are Speccy-like and presented like a JRPG, but the 'battles' are real-time, single-screen things. It's pretty relaxed and you can retry things if you fail.|
|Rocket League||also on: PS4, Switch, Win, XBO|
|Sid Meier's Civilization V||also on: OSX, Win|
|Tanks of Freedom||also on: Android, Browser, BSD, OSX, Win|
| An open-source Advance Wars clone, that I didn't enjoy so much. The damage stuff is really simplified, and it felt like things too-easily turned into battles of attrition, with not much tactical variety.
It has a level editor though!
