    Any shell Games for Linux

    This may be an innocent (ignorant) question, but are there any shell games for Linux like the old MS-DOS games?

    I remember one called Qwest. That was great. There were a couple pretty good pong-type games.

    Not that I know of since I do not play games in Linux, but you should find some in these G4L search results for 'shell games'.
    SEARCH FIRST... ASK SECOND Read the JL 'Community Help Posting Guidelines' before posting in the forums.

    If Linux doesn't have the solution, you have the wrong problem. ... Please do not send me a PM asking for help...

    Please read the search suggestion thread in JL Ideas

    There's always good ol' NetHack
    I use to play that all the time on my old laptop, and it's quite fun to die 20 times in 30 minutes

    I wrote an (admittedly pretty slow) text-mode minesweeper using ncurses once. I see, though, that freshmeat.net has a bunch of the same type of program. Actually, if you go to freshmeat and browse for "console/text based" programs, then filter for "games/entertainment", you come up with this page:

    http://freshmeat.net/browse/226/?top...rby=&filter=80

    Which has a TON of text-mode games.

    There are a lot of shell games available for linux!

    moon buggy
    boggle
    backgammon
    fish
    mille
    wump
    fortune


    Just to name a few.

    Then you have your rpg games like moria, angband, zangband, etc... Then the tetris type that are around. I've even seen a few that are in python, and then you have some that have the newt and slang interfaces as well.

    I've created a simple text-based clicker-like game in shell script!
    I'm currently pretty active working on it but I need some feedback.
    If you're interested, pls give it a shot!
