    Default Txt based games. Games made out of text only

    https://itsfoss.com/best-command-line-games-linux/

    Some of you would enjoy these. Last time I saw these kind of games
    was GBA homebrew with a shooter that used only the "System Fonts"
    of the GBA, the ships, the levels , everything was text art-work.

    I hope that you enjoy these and more. Simple to install via command-line ( terminal ) of any
    linux distro.

    So this is a link to some linux stuff. Just got Gui linux to work via WSL 2. Been searching for something. Maybe I will install Android. The bonus of Gui linux is to launch applications without having to launch an entire OS inside a VM. I mean okay it is doable but it is problematic with the GPU drivers ( as Vmware and others are still on DX11 ). More importantly I could use lower end stuff

    I'm running Ubuntu on an Atari VCS 800 (which I'm using to type this) and gave Ninvaders a run. Pretty dang cool. Thanks for the link!
