Videogames… command line for your BASH

Terminus for BASH

If you would like to learn and remember the commands in a simpler way, or you start practicing like crazy in the BASH of your GNU / Linux distribution or you are looking for a more fun alternative that we are going to talk about here. These are some interesting games or hobbies for the command line that can help us learn while playing and remind us what some commands are for. Not really games, but gamified versions of the Linux command lessons.

So it can be very interesting for all of you who want to learn playing, or to practice for exams like LPIC, LFCS, etc. If you want to know these gamifications, now we are going to present you in LxA some of the best that you will find, we can only wish you to learn a lot with them while having fun. And for that you must access the website of wargames.

Within the web page you will see all existing games that are available, as you can see there are quite a few of them, and each of them has an SSH port through which you can connect to start playing. Obviously, do not expect heart attack graphics at all, they are all command line based games and the most advanced graphics that you will see will be some debujos on the console with colors ... but that does not mean that they are very practical to learn.

Between the games available we can highlight:

  • Bandit
  • Terminus
  • clmstery
  • etc.

Within the web that we indicate at the beginning you will find the complete list of games, if you click you will display the different levels of each one, which are quite numerous. And you can also find the information for the connection by SSH and the port, as well as information on the commands to use, etc., or you can simply inquire yourself and go testing ...
