Linux Puzzle Games

Filed under
Gaming

There are Linux games for every taste: first person shooters, board and arcade games, strategy games. But if you prefer to train your intellectual skills instead of blasting monsters or conquering the world, there are a few high-quality puzzle games, too. In this article we will take a look at some of the best puzzle games for Linux.

ENGIMA

Enigma is probably one of the most popular and addictive puzzle games on Linux’and deservedly so. It has all the attributes of a high-quality puzzle game: slick graphics, simple yet challenging game play, and a huge number of levels. What sets Enigma apart from other puzzle games is that it requires not only some intellectual skills, but also a lot of dexterity.

Most Linux distributions have Enigma in their repositories, so you can easily install it using your distro’s package manager. On Ubuntu, use the Add/Remove Applications command to launch the package manager.
