Those bubble ones are just spin-offs of the original Bubble Bobble, am I right?

[b]Blobwars: Metal Blob Solid[/b] [2d platform game]
[url="http://www.parallelrealities.co.uk/blobWars.php"]http://www.parallelrealities.co.uk/blobWars.php[/url]

[i]Since their world was invaded by an alien race, the Blobs have faced a lifetime of war. But now they have a chance to win the war once and for all.

In Blob Wars : Metal Blob Solid, you take on the role of a fearless Blob agent, Bob. Bob's mission is to infiltrate the various enemy bases around the Blobs' homeworld and rescue as many MIAs as possible. But standing in his way are many vicious aliens, other Blobs who have been assimilated and the evil alien leader, Galdov.[/i]


[b]UFO: Alien Invasion[/b] [turn-based, multiplayer support]
[url="http://ufo.myexp.de/"]http://ufo.myexp.de/[/url]

[i] UFO: ALIEN INVASION is a strategy game featuring tactical combat against hostile alien forces which are about to infiltrate earth at this very moment. You are in command of a small special unit which has been founded to face the alien strike force. To be successful on the long run, you will also have to have a research team study the aliens and their technologies in order to learn as much as possible about their technology, their goals and the aliens themselves.

'UFO: Alien Invasion' is heavily inspired by the 'X-COM' series by Mythos and Microprose. The first game of the series, 'UFO DEFENSE', became a classic and, in our honest opinion, is one of the best games ever made.
'UFO: Alien Invasion' is neither a sequel nor a remake of 'UFO DEFENSE' - we simply had the urge to create a similar strategy game, which will hopefully be as entertaining as the original was for the players (and for the developers, of course ;) ).[/i]

[url="http://sc2.sourceforge.net/"]http://sc2.sourceforge.net/[/url]

[i]A remake of Star Control 2, a great oldie. One of the best![/i]


[b]DosBox[/b] - [Emulator?]
[url="http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1"]http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/news.php?show_news=1[/url]

[i]With this you can play a LOT (and I mean A LOT, as in the opposite of a few) of the old dos games. It is one of the must haves for my system, as I am heavily into classic and nostalgia games. I'll take this over WINE any day. This allows me to dig out my cherished games such as the Settlers, Heroes of Might and Magic, XCOM, Pizza Tycoon, Populous, Sim Ant, Command and Conquer.. etc et.. I could fill up the page :). They just don't make 'em like they used to.[/i]


Other than those, there are also emulators for many other game types console and arcade. I will leave these up to you to find due to questionable legality in some peoples eyes ;).

[b]Savage[/b] - [Real Time Strategy/First Person Shooter (great mix of both)]
[url="http://www.s2games.com/savage/"]http://www.s2games.com/savage/[/url]

[quote]Choose to be a commander and you will play an in-depth RTS managing the stronghold, or choose to be a warrior and you will play an intense game of first person combat. With the creation of a new game play genre, RTSS (Real Time Strategy Shooter), Savage expertly redefines the first-person shooter and real-time strategy genres by combining elements of both into one cohesive experience.[/quote]

[i]Simply my favorite game on Linux[/i].

Can't believe nobody mentioned ClanBomber! Anyway, here's the link: [url="http://clanbomber.sourceforge.net/"]http://clanbomber.sourceforge.net/[/url]

However, my favourite games in Linux are Quake 3 Arena and BZFlag, plus I got GTA Vice City working under Cedega (have to disable intro videos).

I'm rather hurt that no one had mentioned this game yet, but I'm sure I'll live.

[b]Deadly Rooms of Death[/b] - [Turn based Puzzle Game]

(Taken from the "What is DROD?" article on DROD.net found [url="http://drod.net/Articles/WhatisDROD.html"]here.[/url])

"[i]Of course, Beethro has an advantage. Unlike aforesaid games with characters with oversized swords, Beethro is experienced in killing all sorts of creatures, so it only takes waving the sword in their square to kill them; and Beethro has as much time as he needs to decide what to do. Every turn, he decides whether to move (using the number pad by default), wait (using the 5 on the number pad), or rotate his sword 45 degrees (using Q for clockwise and W for anticlockwise by default), and the game will pause while you decide his next step. Beethro makes his move, then the monsters (many puzzles taking advantage of this fact), so what could have been a frantic, and nigh on impossible, game of hack-and-slash becomes a violent but intelligent puzzle game.

And DROD has some of the toughest puzzles you'll ever see. Some will have you collapsing trapdoors and opening doors; some will have you coaxing invincible monsters into dead-ends; some will have you turning the monsters own attacks against them. And the last handful has you going up against their leader, the 'Neather, who delights in slamming doors in your face and sending wave after wave of monsters to kill you. It's a touching tale that parallels most of our daily existence, and the path to take to break free of our mundane existence and live the life we've always wanted. It's a cunning parable that would make Confucius proud.[/i]"

Version 1.6, known as "Architects' Edition", is 100% free, while the new version, "Journey to Rooted Hold", is $20 USD, but you can get the demo for free, and it includes the level editor and one style.

A nice puzzle game that includes Sokoban and Supaplex. Probably one of the first Linux games I used after BZFlag and ClanBomber!

Some of these are probally listed but anyways.

TREMULOUS (Originally a Quake3 mod but it's now available as a standalone)
[url="http://tremulous.net"]http://tremulous.net[/url]
Great Alien Vs Marines mod, lot's of fun.

Wolfenstein ET (Everyone knows about this, you will need it for ETF so get it!)
[url="http://www.3dgamers.com/games/wolfensteinet/downloads/"]http://www.3dgamers.com/games/wolfensteinet/downloads/[/url]

ETF (Teamfortress mod for Wolfenstein ET, used to be for Quake3)
[url="http://www.etfgame.com"]http://www.etfgame.com[/url]

I've been playing ETF latley it's too bad the size of the community is so small only a handful of servers left, every evening there are ussually people to play on a server called RailBait. If you like Quake, Teamfortress or TFC then I suggest you check this out. Perhaps the best looking TF mod and also one that is very close to the original, so much fun to play too bad I'm not the best :D

[*]network (Internet) game: [url="http://http://www.frozen-bubble.org/data/fb2-5p.png"]up to 5 players[/url] in a game (net game system has logic able to transparently handle players behind a NAT)
