Another superb collection of Linux games

"Yo Frankie!

"Frank has the innocence of Puss in Boots and the diabolics of a toothy little thing that has no respect for fellow forest creatures.

"This game does not use the Quake engine. It runs on Blender Game Engine and is available for all major operating systems. Blender is a powerful, popular 3D modeling and rendering graphics software, which was used to create the stunning landscapes and lifelike behavior of the characters in the game.

"The game takes places in the universe of the Big Buck Bunny. You play Frank, hence the name, a bullying rodent that amuses itself by abusing other wildlife by tossing them around and throwing things at them like nuts and bones. Frank can also glide, being somewhat of squirrelly type, although I have not managed to master this particular skill in the four hours I played Yo Frankie!

"The goal of the game is simple - you have to pass the levels, fighting rodents, fighting sheep, tossing about their baby sheep and using them as props for your shenanigans, climbing rocks, tarzaning around, and collecting nuts and bones from your defeated opponents, which, by the way, explode when killed."
