2. Use Your Knoppix Desktop > 17. Have Fun and Play Some Games

Have Fun and Play Some Games

While you can get a lot of work done with Knoppix, you can also have a lot of fun. Windows gives you Solitaire, Freecell, and Minesweeper. Knoppix gives you a virtual arcade full of games.

Primarily, you should use Knoppix to complete work, but sometimes it’s good to have some fun too. Knoppix has something for everyone with its broad selection of games. Here’s an overview of the game categories and descriptions of some of the games.

All of the games included in Knoppix are organized in the K Menu under Games. This submenu lists the different game categories, such as adventure, arcade, board games, card games, puzzles, strategy, and a special category for Tetris-like games.

Many of the games in the arcade category revive classic arcade games from the 1980s, and most fall into two categories: games with spaceships and games with bouncing balls. Don’t laugh; sometimes the simplest games are the most addictive. Galaga is a Linux remake of the famous arcade game with more power-ups and a faster pace, and Frozen Bubble is an addictive clone of Bust-A-Move, also known as Puzzle Bobble.
