Look! Up In The Sky!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane!

No, wait. It is a bird. A small, flightless waterfowl, to be exact. A penguin.

I am caught in the grip of SuperTux, an open source game I happened upon a few days ago. It’s a clone of Super Mario Brothers, featuring, of course, a penguin, the darling of the open source crowd.

Even though it’s trendy or cool, I’m a sucker for side scrollers. There’s something to be said for simple, engaging gameplay. Sure, it’s not 3D. Sure, it’s not ultraviolent or controversial. But it sure is fun to play.
