Chapter 5. Ported Games

Now that we have played some games via an emulator, we are ready to play some games that were ported to work on the Raspberry Pi. A port is a piece of software that is coded and developed for a specific environment but has been transported and rebuilt for a different one. This commonly occurs with console games. A game will be written for a Microsoft console, and then ported over to Sony's or Nintendo's console. It also happens when a console game is ported over to the PC.

This chapter will focus on those games that have been released for other platforms, and then ported over to the Raspberry Pi.

  • Install and play Doom
  • Install and play Open Arena, and create a multiplayer server ...
