SuperTux

SuperTux is a free, open source two-dimensional platform game. The game was originally created by Bill Kendrick and is maintained by the SuperTux Development Team.

The game was inspired by the Nintendo Super Mario series.[1] Instead of Mario, the hero in this game is Tux, the mascot of the Linux kernel (and the game's only reference to Linux). Many of the in-game graphics were created by Ingo Ruhnke, creator of Pingus.

The development occurs in a series of milestones, each one improving steadily upon the last. Currently, only Milestone 1 has been released; however, there is a preview release for Milestone 2, Milestone 1.9.

In 2008, SuperTux was used as a game for children by school district #73 in British Columbia, which had decided to transition to open source software.[2] The game was scheduled to be included in the release of the EVO Smart Console as of April 2009.[3]

Punto Informatico described the atmosphere of the game as pleasant and praised the free availability of the game.[4] Free Gamer criticized it for a lack of originality and a sharp variance in level difficulty.[5]
