    The list is really starting to build up, though I've had to separate Secret Maryo since it now requires OpenGL. Personally, I believe in how Battle Tanks handled it: Takes advantage of OpenGL cards, but does fine without it. Since Maryo started off not needing OpenGL, IMO it should have either did what BTanks did or create a separate OpenGL version. You don't see Nintendo remaking Super Mario in 3D do you? Instead they created a new 3D game, Super Mario 64.

    In any case, they all look like really great games, OpenGL or not. I am quite curious about Cultivation and Allacrost. They look really promising.

    I wonder if anyone else has something in mind? A great game they're currently playing, etc.

    Battle for Wesnoth is very addictive.

    Freeciv, the open-source cross-platform clone to Civilization, has to be the best 2d game for Linux! Really good graphics, great AI, and network support. Freeciv is in the Ubuntu repositories (under Add/Remove Programs), or is available here -> http://www.freeciv.org/

    Well, I've been testing Finity Flight for MirthKit ... its technically the game I play the most right now. Also working on a new game that I play alot.

    ... I've spent a fair amount of time on Iagno (or however its spelled)

    Hey there! I've read that MirthKit (and FinityFlight for that matter) uses accelerated 2D, but I was wondering if it auto-detects this for PCs with no hardwared acceleration?

    Re: Your Favorite 2D Linux Game

    Currently, MirthKit only works with 3D accelerators. However, it is possible to have a libgl library that doesn't interface with a graphics driver, and instead computes in software. MK uses a very small subset of OpenGL, so I bet there is something out there that would make it work for you...

    I totally agree with you that this is the best linux 2D game, and in my opinion best game of all existing games for linux so far.
    I recommend it to everybody, I just installed it few days ago and I got addicted to it already.
    If anybody want to play online with me, feel free to contact me through IM, mail or PM.
