I was reading Digg this morning when I came across a post talking about the 8 best games for Linux. I was immediately attracted to a picture of the game World of Padman, which at first glance seemed to be a game for children, but don’t let it fool you.
The first thing I did was watch this video. That is when I noticed that it looked a lot like a cartoon-ish version of Quake, but with funny characters. The “weapons” are not as violent as those in Quake, but even after I saw the weapon that uses water ballons for amunition, I’m still not sure if I want to let my daughter Yv play it yet.
Well, I downloaded the ~500 MB Linux installer (there’s also installers for Windows and Mac) and had it running in only a few minutes.
This is a very fun game and it gives you the impression you’re inside a cartoon. Though I only managed to play it for 10 minutes since I had promissed to take my daughter to the library (am writing this thanks to their free access point), I can tell you this game has the potential to be a very addict game. You may want to consider whether you want your child to play it though.
