Needs a powerful pc, but lots of phun :)

Bother! I don't think my submission linked to the article, just the website. Here is the link to the article.


Phun is part game/part educational and lots of fun!

Its refreshing to see the kids playing these sort of games/activities rather than the usual cannon fodder shoot-em ups (not that they can keep away from those for long!). In Phun, instead of bullets they drop rocks on things and drown stuff, but hey.. nobody got shot right?

Edit: It appears Lifehacker are wrong about Phun being open source. It is free however.

Link Fixed

The link is fixed.

However I imagine it won't matter much being that the software is only free as in beer.

Currently Proprietary

The package I downloaded, Phun beta 3.5 for 32-bit Linux, is licensed as proprietary software. It is "free for non-commercial use".
