Hi, I was browsing the repository with aptitude and my sun looked over my shoulder and spotted the games category - "ooh games! Can we play something?" We tried one or two but the quantity is a bit overwhelming, so I'm asking for recommendations. Whilst I'm happy with roguelikes and minesweeper, I get the feeling he was hoping for something a bit more arcadey. Kids these days have a seemingly infinte supply of free flash games at their disposal.
I've seen the list in the Magpi but that doesn't say whether they are any good! I've also tried searching for linux games, but the 'coolest' looking games require higher specs than the Pi offers.
So, any actual recommendations for games that run well on the Pi that might impress an eight year old?
