Frozen Bubble on OpenSolaris

Frozen Bubble is available on OpenSolaris with some tweak. I love this game :) This game was really popular when I was still in the University. Usually two of us played hours and hours in 2p mode, tried to defeat each other until power suspension in the dormitory at night. At that time, Windoz was the only choice to play this kind of game. And now, open source has grown to be such powerful so that a big bunch of games are available on OpenSolaris/Linux. BTW, the OpenSolaris game community does a great job to port games to OpenSolaris.

Actually I didn't know the open source Frozen Bubble project until I joined the Singapore Linux meetup group event. A LXDE presentation was given and Frozen Bubble flashed during the demo. Google helped me find out the project page and I started this porting effort. What's amazing is that the LAN/Internet game modes are also supported.

If you want to try the game ability of OpenSolaris platform, Frozen Bubble is the one you should start with.

gerard, if you get on to the OpenSolaris games main page, there is a small rectangle area showing the "Keys used on this site". They have different places to host all the games, blastwave, sunfreeware, SFE, Wine for example. For some of them, you'll have to build from source.

BTW, please go to games-discuss@opensolaris.org for detail instruction on how to install different games on OpenSolaris.
