Linux games - First Person Shooters - Part Deux

Filed under

It's time for some more fast-paced action!

In the last article, we have reviewed three excellent First Person Shooters (FPS) - OpenArena, Sauerbraten and Nexuiz - which offer you a good mix of solid graphics, fast-paced action and cross-platform compatibility, while being simple to use and configure, free, stable, and low on hardware demands.

Today, we'll talk about games where you play as a human - against other humans. Our two candidates are AssaultCube and Urban Terror.


AssaultCube is one of the smallest, yet good-looking FPS games available. It packs neatly into 19MB of funs and realism, based on the Cube engine. While it may appear somewhat spartan and archaic compared to multi-GB behemoths out there, it is a reasonable choice for people with weak machines or slow Internet.

  • ​U.S. Government data shows */Linux Operating Growing On Web Clients
    Oh, yes, of the “1.52 billion visits over the past 90 days”, 33.5% were not from the desktop… Android/Linux had 15% share. Oh yes, this is a victory for all things open and Free. Monopoly desktop OSs are like the zombies on “The Walking Dead” TV-series. They try to keep going missing lots of important parts but they don’t do very well despite the numbers… GNU/Linux seems to do best on weekends when folks are home during office hours.
