In order to play under Linux, you can:

  • Play with a native game, i.e. a game that has been written for Linux (See list).
  • Use Loki, which provides installers for several games
  • Use Wine, which allows to run Windows applications under Linux
  • Use Cedega, which is a fork of Wine but game-oriented. Its packaged version is not free of charge unlike its CVS version.
  • Use Java Webstart (embedded in Java 1.6) to install cross-platform games very easily
  • Use your web browser to launch web-games (applets using Java, Flash, Actionscript ...)
  • Use an operating system emulator like dosBox
