Thread: why there are only five games in the new ubuntu (lucid)

  1. #1

    Angry why there are only five games in the new ubuntu (lucid)

    I just upgraded my son's computer and we were very upset seeing that "same-gnome" his favorite game has just gone.

    He's 3 years old and this is the only game he currently play on the computer (besides drawing and typing random characters).

    There is no way to get it installed via apt-get/aptitue as well.

    Please advise,
    Tzury


    update:

    Just found out there is a new game which replace the old and beloved same-gnome called "Swell Foop" too bad the one we loved is not there anymore.

    http://live.gnome.org/Same%20Gnome
    gnome-samegnome.png Same Gnome is a puzzle game. The game is now called Swell Foop. The goal is to remove the objects in as few moves as possible. Similar objects that are adjacent to each other are removed as a group. The remaining objects then collapse to fill in the gaps and new groups are formed. You cannot remove single objects.

    I was also sad to see Same Gnome replaced with the Fell Swoop. I've looked around and tried to find a way to get the same old Same Gnome installed, but I haven't been able to with my ultra newbie Ubuntu skills.

    I tried sudo apt-get install same-gnome, and it told me that it was replaced with the package fell-swoop. . . sigh.

    I'd love any advice about how to get the old game back in Lucid!

    If you go to the Software Center and search for Same Game, you will be able to install it.

    Swell Foop seems to be the same as Same-gnome.

    It has different graphics, but the game-play is the same.

    How about enlarging his sphere of computer interaction...

    There are 488 entries under "Games" in the Ubuntu Software Center. The one you want has had a name change.

    See this Gnome.org web page--it's been changed to Swell Foop.
