Some Grubby Linux Games

Not being a gamer, I have never been concerned by the “lack of native Linux games” and have been happily using Ubuntu for 2 years now. I also converted the whole house so everyone is using Ubuntu - including my kids. My kids (ages 7 and 11) do like to play games a bit and I encourage it on Ubuntu as a way for them to become familiar with the operating system and familiar with computing in general. So what is a father, teacher, Ubuntu user and not overly pro-game person to do?

Enter Grubby Games. I discovered them after reading an article in the December, 2007 issue of Linux Journal. I downloaded the demo versios of FizzBall and Professor Fizzwizzle and the Molten Mystery.
