"One advantage to being an open source gamer is that you can play games that are still in development. If you find one you like, you can enjoy and watch it improve over time. Here is one such game."

"I've given up a lot of my time to games such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skateboarding and Coolboarders on the Playstation. Flinging a character around at ridiculous speeds and performing death-defying tricks is something I seek out in a game. So it is no surprise that I found the high-speed snow sliding of Tux Racer a welcome change of pace from the strategy titles that seem to just pile up on my Linux box."

"Tux Racer is a simulation in which you play the ice wizard, Tux himself. It is your job to steer him down the courses as fast as you can, avoiding trees and obstacles in your race against the clock. Excellent visuals and a fun, fast-paced snow theme make an entertaining combination."
