apt-cache search racing returns a number of interesting looking games, one of which is TuxKart by Steve and Oliver Baker. A quick “apt-get install” and I was up and racing!
The game itself is simple, and if you’ve played any of the other kart games around it’ll be familiar. I laughed when Tux first ran over a fish and heard a big gulp sound but it might get annoying to those around you, so turn the volume down!

This game is making the rounds on delicious right now. In this Flash game you play a ninja who must dodge various nasties and collect the gold.

This diary is a good read. The best one ever was the Zzap64! diary of Creatures by the Rowland’s Brothers.
