SuperTux is another free and open source Linux game. Being reminiscent of the Super Mario Bros. series, it is a side-scrolling action game, where the goal of the game is to rescue Penny by getting from one end of the level to the other, while killing or avoiding enemies, and collecting power-ups. SuperTux includes 26 levels, but there is also a level editor available, so you can make your own stages.
