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!

Play classic games such as Tetris, Pacman, Space Invaders and more!
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.
It didn’t run too well on my machine, probably because I had too many FF tabs open but the demos are fun to watch although quite disturbing to see a small matchstick figure blown to bits or fall to earth with a big crunch!
This diary is a good read. The best one ever was the Zzap64! diary of Creatures by the Rowland’s Brothers.

Damn, when someone visited by searching for Godian Tomb on Google I just had to go look for it myself.. and I found lots more too, even Mr Robot although something tells me it won’t hold quite the same attraction as it did over 10 years ago.
If only I could play it on a decent portable device! The keyboard on my 7650 is fairly knackered from playing Stunt Car Racer, oops! Can anyone suggest a pda with a good C64 emulator? Not as if I have the money for it, mind, but one can always dream eh?
Much Later… I’m just after trying out Gordian Tomb and the version on that site is one I know very well… I coded the “crack” intro on it! Wow, that must have been some 14 or more years ago! I wonder how they got that copy?
