Warzone 2100

Sometimes it’s hard to find decent games in Ubuntu’s Software Center, but there are a few hidden gems, such as this one, Warzone 2100.

In Warzone 2100, you command the forces of The Project in a battle to rebuild the world after mankind has almost been destroyed by nuclear missiles.

The game features a single player campaign, skirmish mode and multiplayer as well as boasting over 400 different technologies which truly makes this game worth its price – which is of course, free!

It’s in the same vein as classics like Command and Conquer, but entirely open source and runs natively on Ubuntu, very well I might add. I played the game for a bit last year and I remember I spent a number of hours playing through the single player campaign which has a rich story. It’s addictive, skirmish modes are fun, the units are well balanced and the graphics are completely adequate for an RTS.

This is a very polished open source game and I highly recommend you give it a shot.
