Linux Game of the Month : Fillets-NG

Filed under
Gaming

There is something I like about playing games that is, strangely enough, much the same as what I enjoy about reading science fiction or fantasy. The medium lends itself beautifully to creating other times, places, and even worlds. Some of these worlds can be familiar — what we call simulations — while others are a bit more out there. My game recommendation for this month is called Fish Fillets Next Generation, and it definitely fits into the out there category. Perhaps a little description to start with...

Fish Fillets Next Generation is a Linux port and rewrite of a game originally called (simply) Fish Fillets. The game starts with our friendly fish protagonists sitting aroung the table discussing whatever it is fish discuss, when suddenly, a heavy metal cylinder drops on the table in front of them ... a talking cylinder no less. Something is obvioulsy afoot (or afin) in their world, and the intrepid duo decide to go out and investigate. There's only one problem — the cylinder has separated the pair and made it impossible for them to get out.

No, not impossible, just puzzling. This first puzzle is just a teaser, enough to get you into the second level where the information in a mysterious briefcase informs them of a diabolical plot.

Full Review.

Playing it

I had been playing that for quite a while - until I got stuck. It looks easy, but it gets hard! It ain't for whimps! ...or maybe I'm just too blonde. Big Grin

Anyway, my 1 year old granddaughter likes it too, even if it's just for the dialog and music. Big Grin

Hands-on with Ubuntu MATE 16.04 on the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3

To put things into a fair perspective, keep in mind that we are talking about a computer that costs $25 or so and can be used with a display, keyboard and mouse which a lot of people are going to have on hand already. That means for a very small amount of money, you can have a very nice computer running one of the most popular Linux distributions. Some people (including me) might argue that there are really not many (or any) significant advantages of Ubuntu MATE over Raspbian, but even I can't deny that MATE looks more polished, and if you are accustomed to Ubuntu in general or MATE in particular, then this distribution is the way to go.
