XBill on NetBSD

XBill is a simple game where you have to stop the many cloned Bills from installing a virus that looks a lot like a certain popular operating system. You have a network of computers that run a variety of operating systems, all represented by the machine with the mascot or symbol displayed on the screen. The cloned Bills carry their cargo to the systems, remove the old OS from the systems, replace it with the windows OS (virus), and then escape with the old OS. You have to stop them by swatting them. If they manage to remove the original OS, but do not escape with it, you can replace it by dragging it back to the original system. As you complete levels there are more Bills to squish, and they come in greater numbers with greater speed. The game is quite a lot of fun, and quickly becomes challenging. I played it on my Sparcstation connected over the network on my macbook. Even using wireless, and X over the network, the game responds well. It’s a little difficult to play with a touchpad so I’d recommend you connect a proper mouse in order to play. It is available on pretty much any unix like operating system, including, BSD, Linux, and commercial OSes like solaris. It is a good distraction for a short while, and makes fun of windows. I first played this game on the first linux I ever installed and enjoyed it then, and it is still worth playing.
