I just went through Julie Marchants excellent list of libre games:
There are so many! :)
Currently we are missing these (according to https://guix.mdc-berlin.de/):
A7Xpg - An arcade game centered around avoiding enemies while collecting
as many gold pieces as possible. Centered around a "booster" which
repels enemies and makes you go faster.
Adanaxis - A first-person 4-D space shooter game. Literally "adds an
axis" to typical 3-D space shooters for a very unique experience.
Alex the Allegator 4 - A fun, lighthearted, short platformer.
Armagetron Advanced - A 3-D variant of the Light Cycles sub-game of the
classic Tron arcade game. Highly configurable and very fun to play.
This we have already. :)
B.A.L.L.Z. - Highly engaging action puzzle game centered around a
character that moves automatically. You start with only one action
(jumping) and gain two more actions later in the game.
Battle Tanks - An engaging multiplayer overhead shooter game. Features
deathmatch and cooperative modes. Includes a nice selection of tanks and
weapons. When your current tank is destroyed, your character ejects from
it as an infantry unit and can search for and board a new one, or
continue fighting on foot.
Criticalmass - A simple space shooter game similar in style to games
like Galaxian with great production value and balance. The game awards
you with more/better weapons for playing at higher difficulty levels.
Dink Smallwood (GNU FreeDink) - A funny Zelda-style RPG.
Dopewars - A simple game where you buy drugs for cheap and then sell
them to make a profit, avoiding (or fighting) cops along the way. You
have one month to make as much money as you possibly can.
Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup - A very fun and well-made dungeon crawl game
with a nice interface. Find the "Orb of Zot" and then exit the dungeon
(without getting yourself killed, of course) to win!
Endgame: Singularity - A very fun real-time strategy game from the
perspective of the Singularity, an advanced A.I. that seeks to
eventually surpass reality itself. Help the Singularity achieve the
highest possible state before the humans uncover its presence and
Flare: Empyrean Campaign - A very fun, engaging, well-balanced, and
detailed isometric action fantasy RPG about someone who has been exiled
from their homeland and their quest to regain entry.
Funguloids - A simple arcade game where you control some sort of blob
thing in space, collecting mushrooms while avoiding asteroids. The thing
you control moves at a constant speed which increases as you collect
mushrooms and move through levels, so it gets harder and harder until
you finally mess up. Great production value and very fun to play.
Gunroar - An abstract naval-themed bullet hell game.
Hex-a-Hop - A fun puzzle game where you have to find the right path to
clear the board of tiles.
Inside a Star-filled Sky - Progress as deep as you can into an endless
abstract world. Your actions in the current level affect the state of
your character in the next level. You can enter into yourself and
enemies, regressing back a level, to change their properties if you find
yourself in a pinch. Very unique and challenging.
Jump 'n Bump - A classic multiplayer deathmatch game where you stomp on
your friends' heads. Features fully customizable graphics, allowing you
to create any kind of map you can imagine if you are so inclined.
Krank - A puzzle game incorporating elements from Pool/Billiards. You
have to use a large ball to bump smaller balls into their proper place.
Includes a lot of variety and gets quite challenging later on.
Konquest - A fun turn-based strategy game which is a twist on the Risk
board game. Send ships from planets you control to conquer others. Crush
all other empires and conquer the whole galaxy to win!
Liquid War - A unique real-time strategy game: you tell your liquid what
direction to move in, and nothing else. Liquid attacks enemy liquid when
it goes in its direction. Your goal is simply to end up with more liquid
than all of your opponents when the timer runs out. For such a simple
concept, it is surprisingly engaging.
Meritous - A fun action-adventure dungeon crawler game.
Micropolis - The libre version of Sim City Classic. This is not a clone,
but actually directly based on the Unix port of Sim City.
Mindustry - A pixel-styled "sandbox tower defense" game centered around
building networks to collect materials and then using those materials to
build defense systems. Fantastic production value and highly engaging,
with online multiplayer support.
Mirror Magic - A fun puzzle game where you have to use mirrors to
manipulate a beam.
Mu-cade - A unique abstract shooter game taking place on a ring. Knock
your enemies off the ring while preventing them from knocking you off.
Nikki and the Robots - A very nice original puzzle platformer with a
Noiz2sa - A fun and challenging abstract bullet hell game with nice
OpenClonk - A fun game combining elements of parkour with elements of
RTS games. Features multiple game modes and has great production value.
Overgod - A fun twist on the classic Asteroids, featuring several
different ships, multiplayer support, powerups, and "asteroids" that
Phlipple - A simple, but engaging puzzle game centered around folding
3-D objects together.
Ri-li - A simple game centered around helping a train collect all cars
on the board without allowing it to run into itself. Effectively, a
variant of Snake where you are only allowed to move along set paths.
rRootage - An abstract bullet hell game. Your weapon is a continuous
beam that fires straight forward, and all enemies are boss-like.
Rocks'n'Diamonds - A highly sophisticated game combining elements of
Boulder Dash, Emerald Mine, Supaplex, and Sokoban as well as several
original elements, creating an engine that is capable of highly varied
gameplay. If that wasn't enough, the production value is great, too.
Sleep Is Death - A unique 2-player-only RPG, limited only by the
Slingshot - A fun 2-player turn-based strategy game centered around
aiming shots so that the gravity of nearby planets flings them toward
the enemy ship.
SolarWolf - A simple, but very fun game based on the Atari 2600 game
SolarFox, but with much better production value. Centered around
collecting cubes as quickly as possible while avoiding gunfire.
Spout - A simple abstract game where you use a spray to propel as high
as you can through the level, without touching obstacles. Spraying the
obstacles erodes them, clearing the path.
Titanion - An abstract shooter game in a style similar to the bonus
stages of Galaga, with great visuals and an emphasis on fast action.
Torus Trooper - A highly fast-paced abstract shooter where you travel
down a tube as fast as you can, destroying enemies to regain your timer
and avoiding getting shot yourself (which causes you to lose time).
TUMIKI Fighters - A fun abstract side-scrolling shooter where you can
pick up enemy "toys" to use as both extra weapons and shields.
Which Way Is Up? - A simple puzzle-platformer centered around rotating
the stage to make it to the exit.
Word War vi - A simple, fun abstract shooter inspired by the famous
rivalry between Emacs and vi.
see also the authors own games under "games".
