"Enigma is probably one of the most popular and addictive puzzle games on Linux’and deservedly so. It has all the attributes of a high-quality puzzle game: slick graphics, simple yet challenging game play, and a huge number of levels. What sets Enigma apart from other puzzle games is that it requires not only some intellectual skills, but also a lot of dexterity...

"Atomix may not be as advanced as Enigma, but it is still a nice puzzle game, which can even help you to refresh your knowledge of chemistry. In Ubuntu, the game is available through the package manager, so installing the game shouldn’t cause any problems. The game resembles Sokoban, where the player pushes boxes around a maze. In Atomix, your objective is to compose the required molecule by pushing atoms around the maze. But there is a twist to it. In Sokoban, you can push a box one square at a time. In Atomix, when you push an atom, it flies all the way until it hits the wall. This makes the puzzle much more challenging, and constructing even a simple molecule can be a tricky thing to do."
