Question Tux & Mario-like games.

I'm not familiar with most of these. I voted SuperTux, it's a cool little game.

I'm a HUGE Mario fan, but switching to Linux I've missed all those games. The only similar games I've found are Secret Maryo (SMC) and SuperTux. But I don't even know where the best place the find these kind of games is.
If you know of any games like Mario, SuperTux or SMA please let me know.

Could you add Aislerot Solitaire? Not a very high tech game, but it's what I always find myself playing while waiting for some job to finish.

An actually playable chessgame like PyChess would be nice to have on the list. And Gnuchess hasn't changed that much for many years.

Hedge Wars. It's a way better remake of worms armaggedon than wormux. Add it to the list please! While using hedgehogs, it still feels much more like worms, even using the same menu and control feel! Plus the physics are much better than wormux's bouncy characters.

No vote, not enough time to test.

It used to be NetHack, but recent versions of it seem less user friendly than the one I had on my Ubuntu 6.06. I've been playing Flash based games lately, and have not looked at the other games available. Sorry if I'm not being fair, but I didn't feel I should bias this category without using all the options. I don't want to discourage any of these good people.

I should be ashamed of myself, for not voting here, and the moderators should be ashamed for not putting Sauerbraten in the list.

1) FWIW, don't blame the LQ mods for any missing nominees, it's me who decides what gets added and what doesn't.

2) Sauerbraten (the game) is not Open Source. No Open Source engines are included in this poll.
