One of them is based on the classic Mario titles (the classics, not those of cars), And Super Tux 0.6.2 It has been released this weekend with some important improvement, such as a new map.
It is worth mentioning that its developers are celebrating. In fact, in the list of news they mention that the new map has been added to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the game.
