This article needs update. This article should mention SuperTux 2 which has many in detail improvements over SuperTux

SuperTux is a 2D side-scrolling platform game featuring Tux the Linux penguin mascot. It is programmed in C++.

SuperTux was originally created by Bill Kendrick. Ingo Ruhnke created many of the levels.

The latest stable release was v0.5.1 on November 5, 2016. It is licensed under the GPLv2.[4]


Among the members of the development team are:


In SuperTux the player controls Tux, making him run around collecting power-ups, killing iceblocks and other enemies, and discovering new worlds, all for the purpose of rescuing his beloved Penny, who was captured by Nolok.

The Linux Game Tome's Game of the Month project helped improve the game in 2004.[5]
