SuperTux is a free software, classic style 2D jump and run game inspired by the Nintendo Super Mario series. It was originally created by Bill Kendrick and is currently maintained by the SuperTux Development Team for additional contributions.

Instead of Mario, the hero in this game is Tux, the mascot of the Linux kernel, albeit the game's only reference to Linux. Many of the in-game graphics were created by Ingo Ruhnke, creator of Pingus.

The development occurs in a series of milestones, each one improving steadily upon the last. Currently, only Milestone 1 has been released, however, there is a preview release for Milestone 2. A large majority of the work for the program is due to the Linux Game Tome's Game of the Month project in 2004.

SuperTux - About

What is SuperTux?

SuperTux is a classic 2D jump'n run sidescroller game in a style similar to the original Super Mario games covered under the GPL. The Milestone 1 release of SuperTux features:

  • 9 enemies
  • 26 playable levels
  • Software and OpenGL rendering modes
  • configurable joystick and keyboard input
  • new music

Together with a little story, we hope to provide a good gaming experience with this first Milestone release.
