I have a download limit in my home PC so cannot download games from my home. Can you recommend few games that comes in a .deb package so that I can download them outside and bring them home to download.

Games like Max Payne or NFS (not exactly Max payn or NFS) for ubuntu. which I can download as .deb but not synaptic, as I have mentioned that I would download them outside my home and bring the deb home.

A good choice is playdeb repo with a lot of games for ubuntu. You can go to website of playdeb find the game that you want and go to home page and download it.

Games such as Max Payn or NFS are licensed by their owners and because they didn't created an ubuntu version you can't download any .deb after a legal purchase.

I however can suggest World of Goo. It costs only 20 bucks and it comes in a .deb package. See

Furthermore I suggest you to check the following site because it is all about ubuntu games. Be sure to check todays game of the week. It's a free game and I believe downloadable as a .deb.

Good luck, Martijn.

I agree with KYI when it comes to World of Goo. Like my previous suggestion (Machinarium), World of Goo is a puzzle-based game. Here is the link: – Stéphane Oct 14 '10 at 9:36

Urban Terror

It is self contained, and would not require additional packages to be downloaded. It has binaries for all major OS in the same package. Keep note this is a multiplayer game.
