Games on Linux: How to Install Astromenace on Ubuntu and Fedora

Hello Guys.

In this article I will show you how to install Astromenace on Ubuntu and Fedora Linux Operating Systems.

Astromenace is a modern 3D space shooter running on Linux without wine. You control a space ship and fight with aliens to survive. At first you have a ship with simple weapons, but you collect money and upgrade your weapons and ship and increase the firepower agains your alien enemies.

Astromenace is opensource and has nice graphics.

So, let’s start installing Astromenace.
