Supertux: A PC Game For All Ages

Updated on August 31, 2011

Supertux? What on Earth is that?

Simply put, Supertux is a one player game similar to that of Super Mario. The character is Tux, and his mission is to rescue his beloved Penny from the evil clutches of a villian. Tux progresses through many levels, fighting off walking snowballs, ice cubes, armoured snowballs ans various other baddies.

The first milestone of the game has 26 levels and 9 different enemies. While some may criticize the game is easy, as you progress further, the harder it becomes and naturally, the more determined you are to finish the game.

I started this game last night after downloading it, and finished in about ten minutes ago. I enjoyed it and that is why I have decided to share this game with the world.

Tux is the mascot for the Linux kernel and the game was originally for Linux. Now, it is available for all major platforms : Windows, Mac OS and Linux. For those users who are using Ubuntu, Supertux should be in the package manager. If not, use sudo apt-get install supertux

So go and grab a copy of this free game and enjoy hours of fun and enjoyment as you help Tux find his beloved Penny.

Supertux in action!

      mtsi, just a word of warning.. if the game happens to become small, minimize it and then click on the title again and it should pop up to full screen. Thanks for commenting

      I'm playing it at the moment, really enjoying stomping on the cute little walking ice cubes! There was another addictive game that I downloaded the other day, called Chips Challenge. Unfortunately no matter what I try it wont run on windows 7. Give it a go and tell me how you find it. ;)

      st0rm3, if you google the following "run game in compatibility mde on windows 7" it should tell you how you can make your system believe that it is the version you're wanting it to be. Good luck and thank you, i will download it and play ":)
