"With Christmas right around the corner at the time of writing, I figured the season of parties, fun and games deserved a roundup of some nice open source games."
"So let's open Santa's sack to see what presents lie inside. See whether we've been naughty and get a lump of coal or nice and get a juicy piece of entertainment. All software here can be found on Freshmeat."
"...So of the three games I tried, all versions of older classics, Quadra takes the gold medal, partly because I have always been a serious Tetris fiend. Maelstrom gets the silver for being a nice conversion of Asteroids, albeit it with annoying sounds and XPete falls at the final hurdle. It would be an amusing distraction if it didn't crash."
