CloneRNX is a simple and funny game. It was cloned from the popular Facebook application called ChainRNX.

XorCurses is a game based entirely on Xor by Astral Software. The original game was released around 1987 for the 8-bit home computers popular at the time. XorCurses attempts to faithfully recreate that game for Linux, but slightly ironically, uses ASCII characters instead of pixel based graphics (which even the 8-bit computers could manage). The idea of Xor is to roam around a series of mazes collecting masks. The first level is simply a matter of finding your way around, but the second level introduces fish and chickens which block your path or kill you if they hit you. From there on in, things get progressively tougher and really is a challenging and difficult puzzle game.
Chroma is an abstract puzzle game in which a variety of colorful shapes are arranged in a series of increasingly complex patterns, forming fiendish traps that must be disarmed and mysterious puzzles that must be manipulated in order to give up their subtle secrets. Initially, it is so straightforward that anyone can pick it up and begin to play, yet it gradually becomes difficult enough to tax even the brightest of minds. It features twenty-one levels, ranging from beginner to expert; infinite undo and redo capability, as well as replaying of solutions; a choice of smooth graphics or a minimal, text based version; and a level editor to allow you to design your own puzzles.
Octaspire Crates! is a scriptable, skinnable, extensible, and relocatable 3D action puzzle game. All the missions, game entities (or crates), game states, and configuration of the game engine are implemented as plain text Lua-scripts. So, if you know Lua, you can write new game entities, game states, missions, and levels with any text editor, without any special development tools. New skins can be created with any image editor that can save .png images, dropped into a new subdirectory under the resources/textures directory, and changed in the configuration file config.lua. Crates has also its own (simple) implementations for all the different container classes it needs (like vector, string, and so on) to keep the external dependencies fewer.
Brain Party is a fun, family-friendly puzzle game that's made up of 36 mini-games designed to push your brain to its limits by testing memory, logic, mathematics, reaction time, and more. It is split into two modes: test mode gives you five mini-games in a row and adds up your brain weight to see how smart you are, and practice mode lets you play your favorite mini-games as often as you want. If you do well enough, there are six extra mini-games that can be unlocked, as well as a new game mode designed to keep you playing and enjoying your favorite games even longer.
CoolDown is a puzzle game inspired by the old game PipeMania, although it changed a lot during development. Your task is to cool down the ball coming from the start field. It has 100 levels, increasing difficulty, pipes in 4 colors, special tiles, and multiple balls. It is available for Caanoo and WIZ, and can be compiled for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
HexGlass is a Tetris-like puzzle game based on a hexagonal grid. Ten different types of blocks continuously fall from above and you must arrange them to make horizontal rows of hexagonal bricks. Completing any row causes those hexagonal blocks to disappear and those above move downwards. The blocks gradually fall faster and the game is over when the screen fills up and blocks can no longer fall from the top.
