Linux games for boys. Here we have the 5 best of 2019

SuperTuxKart (Winner)

We repeat a result with the winner of the general category.

I don't know if it is the game that I would play with my children. Some of the tests include the ability to eliminate your competitors with cream cakes or bowling balls. But it is true that it is a lot of fun.

Each player chooses one of the mascots from the different free software projects and leads them in individual races or in a grand prize. Each one of the tests takes place in 3d graphics that represent natural, indoor or imaginary scenarios. You can only access some of them after having obtained a certain score.

There are different types of competitions; time trial, follow the leader, soccer, capture the flag and two types of battle mode.

SuperTuxKart has two multiplayer modes, local or online. You can also play alone against the machine. By registering you get the possibility to download additional online content. But take the precaution of writing down the password. There is no option to get it back.

Shotgun Farmers

Do you want to have fun with your children and instill in them a love of gardening? This is your game.

Shotgun Farmers is a shooting game with the particularity that miss-hitting bullets make other weapons grow. Weapons cannot be reloaded, but you can collect the ones that grew from your enemies' missed shots or drop bullets on the ground. The longer you let them grow, the more bullets each weapon will have. But of course, the more shots you miss, the more weapons you give your enemies.

The game supports single player or multiplayer (online) mode. The JUMultiplayer egos can be played in password protected public or private matches. Some of the game modes are; chase the chicken, capture the enemy's pig or defend the scarecrow.

Streets of Rogue

Here we have a dungeon style game but what takes place in a functional city created by procedures, in which complex artificial intelligence routines control inhabitants of all kinds, who simply try to carry out their daily activities.

To advance, the player will have to fulfill the specific objectives of his mission in whatever way he deems feasible by using the special abilities of your character, objects and the environment. It will be the choices you make that will make the difference.


In this case we are proposed an exploration game set in a strange but playful world where not everything is as cheerful as it seems. Our mission is Help strange characters overcome difficulties, uncover a complex conspiracy plot, and organize a revolution. All this in a setting where things are not as innocent as they seem.

Pikuniku offers something for all ages. Among the things we can do together with the little ones include:

Explore, at our own pace, a world full of colors. There we will have to help quirky characters in their unusual missions, and solve difficult puzzles that will challenge young and old alike.

Cooperate with our family and friends locally in different customizable challenges.

Meet a group of memorable characters, each with their own problems and eccentricities.

Knights And Bikes

And it was time to comply with the female quota (up to this moment in this series of articles we had only found a witch and a Lady of Luck who, it seems, was quite psychopathic)

Set in the UK in the 80s, this adventure follow Nessa and Demelza. These two friends are exploring the shores of Penfurzy by bike in search of a legendary lost treasure.

The two, along with their goose and the pickled head of a zombie knight, form the Penfurzy Bike Rebels Club, ready to take on any adventure. Together they will face the threats with flying discs, water balloons, console controllers and the powerful rhythm of an amplified boombox.

Along the way they will fill their pockets with things to improve their bikes and continue entering the roads, beaches, forests, attractions and ancient ruins of the island.

    You have dropped a bit of machismo in the article, right? To search for clickbait, you don't have to be so creepy.
