There should be a tower defense type of game in the repository. Perhaps even included by default, I think many people would like that.
Tower defense is a cool game genre. It is a strategic game, that I think many people would enjoy.
There are a couple different kinds of towers which you strategically put into a maze. The towers fire at at a swarm of creeps that run and try to reach the base/fortress/castle/whatever in the maze, if they do you loose. You have to defend it with towers that you buy.
Towers may have different damage, range and fire rate depending on type of tower. Towers may cost different prices, and can be upgraded to become better. There may also be bonus towers. As the game progress, the swarms gets faster, bigger and stronger.
Closing in brainstorm as this is not really an "Ubuntu" issue, but a "I need a game" issue. If anyone comes across a compatible game for Ubuntu, please ask the developer to submit it for inclusion in the repositories.
