Description (last modified by walter)

http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/puzzles/ is a fun collection of lightweight GTK2 puzzles written in C, which we could distribute. We'd just need a few changes:

  • a sugar activity for choosing between the puzzles
  • conversion of the drop-down menu items to icons, since we don't want to have to translate the options, and many kids couldn't read them even if we did.

We likely won't have time to do this ourselves for a good while; if anyone's looking for a project to introduce themselves to sugar, this could be a fun one.

Looking further, there is a huge collection of games at http://www.happypenguin.org/... we should take some time to sort through them for good ones.

Given that most Activity development is occuring at Sugar Labs now, perhaps this ticket should be migrated over to bugs.sugarlabs.org and set as component = activityteam
