Sun Nov 03 2002 15:21 Game Roundup:
- Falling Block Game, the Tetris clone with the generic name.
- Simutrans, a non-free non-commercial game which appears to accumulate all the good things I like about FreeCiv. I haven't really played it because I don't have the patience right now, but it looks really great.
- The Emilia Pinball Project, a pinball game with (currently) only one board. Richard Stallman is angry that the little pinball lights on the board spell out L I N U X instead of G N U / L I N U X. Newer versions of Windows have a pinball game, so is this an attempt to keep up or is it just that pinball games are cool? I planned to complain about various display aspects (the pan-and-scan play, the darkness of the board), but all of those are easily fixed through configuration, so instead I'll complain about the configuration defaults. Complain! The end.
