I've decided to dualboot Crunchbang and LXLE on the same laptop so I could be able to sue LXLE solely for emulator gaming. Got my hands on zsnes, visualboyadvance, etc,  but I'm trying to find a couple of decent sega genesis emulators....anybody know which ones are good?

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

^ Funny! big_smile  I've gotten into hot water here for bringing up 4chan's gender policing, so I'm not takin' that bait. tongue  Besides, "friend" has more characters than I redacted out. wink

I can recommend Gens-GS.

The Debian Games section is my first stop when I browse for a game (thank you apt-cache search!), but there is too many! This thread is nice to get recommendations!

I love SolarWolf! I'm on level IIIV and it is Infuriating!  glasses

Yeah! Tumiki-fighters is greatly underrated for some reason, have no idea why. I'm glad you're enjoying it and having heaps of fun, kbmonkey. That's the main purpose of this thread to let other people know there's tons of great linux native games one must only need to look around to find a good one. Wish I could find something else similar to Solarwolf....it's a one of a kind...

That's the one I stumbled across but didn't know if the emu was good or not. Might give it a try.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

I found this game called Organ Trail thanks to the humble indie bundle. I love games that have a very retro feel to them. This one runs without a problem on crunchbang waldorf 64 bit. Killing zombies is just part of the job tongue

Well I found it in the repos, installed it, but won't load up for whatever weird reason. Too bad. Looks like a fun game.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Found two space shooter games in the repos one is called "Power Manga" the other is called geki2 (I assure you, you won't be dissapointed!) they both have a nice retro vibe and the graphics look great. Am probably gonna use this topic to share whatever linux native game I stumble upon with the rest of you.

Re: Let's Talk Linux: Native Games.

Sometimes one feels like a turn based strategy game, where you have more depth and less reaction time. freeciv is an old favorite. If micromanaging cities is not your thing, there is also a couple of risk-like clones like xfrisk.
