Xmille is a card game. The goal is to hit the finish line before your opponent by using speed cards. I addition you may restrict your opponent by using car crash cars, speed limit cards etc. To resolve them there are cards that fix those limitations.

To start you need as step 1 click the card pile to get a full hand. A Go card then open up to use speed cars to move foreward. Discard a card to be able to get a new card from the pile.

Used to play this on Solaris years ago ...
Thanks! Added to the list.

It's a port of the brilliant pc game Tyrian - a top-down scrolling 2D shooter from the mid 90s.

Enjoy!

Can you update the list regarding Descent I and II?

First of all, it is spelled "Descent", not "Descend" as you currently put it ;)

Also, you don't neccesarily have to buy it. You can play the shareware version of D1 and the demo of D2 for free. I also made binary packages for raspibian (both for the game and said shareware/demo content), so the installation should be easy now. All the details are in my "prepare for descent" thread: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 76#p146276 (I updated the first post).

The full version of can be baught on gog,com: http://www.gog.com/game/descent_1_descent_2 (currently at $9.99 or EUR9.19 together for both).

First, thanks for the grammar correction (technically not a spelling error. Although I'm not sure if it's a grammatical error either, as Descent in this case is a noun... Hmmm :?: )

Anyways, thanks for the link & the shareware info :D. I'll put up a link to your post.

Thanks for updating this.I think this was a spelling error, because "Descent" is just a name in this case. But whatever. 8-)

Note that you now have written "Descent I & I", which is also some kind of error :roll:

-Doukutsu Monogatari (Cave Story) you can get it in the Pi Store. Note: It runs outside of X and will cause a reboot
-Quake 3 (This site has perfect instructions: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=18853)
-Doom (This site is what I used: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/se ... n-and-doom) Note: Versions may update as years go by.

What about the early Champ Man games? Championship Manager 01-02 is avaible as a free download on

http://www.champman0102.co.uk/

Only downside on PC is needed A disk Image to make it run, such as PowerISO

I doubt championship manager will run effectively (or at all) if it needs Windows.

You know to install Open Arena you could just type:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install openarena
I guess people don't use that because the frames-per-second count is really low :mrgreen: .

I guess, but the Pistore one has been compiled specifically for the Pi, although you do have to do a reboot which is a bit annoying

Yeah, I tried it but it only has free-for-all maps, which on my Ubuntu laptop I typed sudo apt-get install openarena, and it had a lot more gamemodes. Is there any way to get more maps and gamemodes? thanks.

I can't remember where, but OpenArena is stored somewhere in /home/[user]/.pistore, or something like that. I myself copied the files from there to my home directory to make it easier to run.

What I am looking to do is to make a 3d printed retro video game system. I have already 3d printed all the parts for the case and I would like someone's help on showing me how the easiest way to get the Raspberry Pi programmed to play the games. In turn if you need help or need a printed 3d case or if I can do something for you I'd be more than happy to. I'm not sure if my email can be seen and you can private PM me seeing that this is my very first time on this forum..... I'll apologize in advance if this is not the correct place to post this however I do need help

So what do you want exactly?

Depends which games you like to play in general - OpenArena is quite good, especially on the Pi2, so is OpenTTD if you like that kind of thing (but don't make your map too big if you do play it), but you should try out a few and see what you like best ;)

Last year, I started making a YouTube series called Raspberry Pi DOS Game Test where I test various DOS games with RPix86.

Games I've tested so far:

- Bio Menace - Works (Slow music)
- Hocus Pocus - Works (No noticeable issues)
- Chip's Challenge - Crashes when the player reaches the third level
- Sword of the Samurai - Works (No noticeable issues)
- Alone in the Dark - Works (Use default sound blaster settings to avoid any major frame rate issues)
- Wolfenstein 3D - Works (Noticeable sound issues and delayed controls)

I've recently started taking requests, so if anyone wants me to test out a DOS game and record the results, just give me a shout. :)

Argh, I can't find the time to overhaul this yet, but hopefully I will when the Christmas holidays begin. Thanks too :)

Some more new games for raspberry pi:
- The abbey of crime extensum (La abadía del crimen extensum) (java required and raspberry pi 2 or 3), launch it with this command like this:

Code: Select all

java -Xmx340m -jar AbadiaExtemsum.jar
- Vorton (highway encounter remake), fixed and compiled for raspberry pi 2.
- Maldita Castilla, They need to be feed and Super Crate Box for raspberry pi (raspbian jessie needed).
- Lpairs (easy compiling).

All these games runs very fine and fluid, only The abbey of crime is a bit slower booting, but it manages complete fluid in game (all tested on my raspberry pi 2).
