Tux Racer

Guide Tux down steep, snow covered mountains!

Standing on the shoulders of giants A great, classic FOSS game I’ve loved since its initial release almost half a lifetime ago.This port itself is OK– a little rough on some edges, but an interesting UI adaptation for Android.I agree with other reviews that it was disappointing to hit the course paywall soon into it.The vast majority of the work on this game already existed; its only real value-add here is the port itself.I’ll be uninstalling, and hoping for a real FOSS port in the future.

    This game is great! It’s just like the linux version. The only problem is that I have to pay for almost all of the levels. It’s fun though? ?

    Tux Racer used to work just fine, but unfortunately, it now crashes the moment I try to play this game. Therefore, I cannot rate this game higher than I have for the time being, but if this issue is addressed, I will increase my rating accordingly.

    Why the price barrier on other people’s work? Cmon, the whole purpose of this game is to showcase the power of FOSS software, and you’re charging money for it.

    Meh

    Lennie, your game is OK. But that’s about it. Please don’t highjack the Tux penguin, put him in your crappy game and attempt to swindle the people. Most of us are smarter than that! I understand everyone needs to make a living but this is extortion!

    Race against what??¿?? Dumb game..only one repetitive course that is short. You collect fish. Try.. You will find yourself deleting the app just like a lot of Google games


    Menasheh Peromsik January 24, 2015
    The game plays very nicely, but 9/12 courses, the more exciting ones, cost $2.99 each.What kind of open source free game costs $36???


    Dan Martin August 19, 2014
    This is an excellent port of one of my favorite open source games, but it t is extremely disappointing because all the good courses must be purchased at $2.99 a pop.Not cool for a game that was open source to start with!


    matt shinall December 29, 2014
    Port seems cool. Looks just like the Linux version, but every other screen transition has some Scoreloop page not found box. Very annoying.


    Joe Etten January 16, 2015
    Pop-ups every time you change levels. Only first 2 levels are free. I can’t believe that they are charging for an open source game.


    Homura Akemi December 17, 2014
    I know the game and I love it, but this android port is completely broken. Please remove the “scoreloop” feature and fix the colours. Thanks.
