Name: Freedoom
URL: http://freedoom.sourceforge.net/
Genre: FPS
Platform: N/A (see notes)
Notes/Comment: "Id Software have released the source code to their classic game, Doom, under the GNU GPL. This means that the engine which powers Doom is Free Software. However, the game engine is only one component of a complete game.

The Doom engine uses an "IWAD" file to store all of its game data. This contains the raw data used by the game - the artwork, sound effects, levels, everything which defines Doom as a game. Until now, one of the original proprietary files was still needed in order to play Doom.

The Freedoom project aims at collaboratively creating a Free IWAD file. Combined with the Free source code, this results in a complete game based on the Doom engine which is Free Software."

The download page lists some compiled Doom engines which can run the Freedoom content. These are available on just about any platform.

Genre: Action

Notes/Comment: ""X-Bomber" is multi-player maze-style game where players collect and drop bombs, in an attempt to blow each other up. Last player standing wins!

X-Bomber is vaguely based on "Atomic Bomberman" by InterPlay and "Bomberman" by Hudsonsof. It is played on a grid, rather than with smooth movement."

Genre: Arcade
Platform: Win32, Mac OS, Mac OS X, BeOS, RiscOS, Linux, QNX, Amiga OS4, MorphOS, PSP, Dreamcast, GamePark, Others (source)
Notes/Comment: ""Circus Linux!" is a clone of the Atari 2600 game "Circus Atari," produced by Atari, Inc. (which is itself a clone of an earlier arcade game named, simply "Circus").
The object is to move a teeter-totter back and forth across the screen to bounce clowns up into the air. When they reach the top, they pop rows of balloons and then fall back down.
(The gameplay is similar to the classics "Breakout" and "Arkanoid.")"
