This is the sixth article in this series, in which I take a look at another 12 free, open-source games for Linux. Ranging from action to arcade or puzzle games, all of them should be available to install with your distribution’s package manager. Here are the other articles in the series:
Since just a few days ago I had a look at the latest SMPlayer release, it’s a good time now to overview yet another movie player written in Qt: QMPlay2.
QMPlay2 is a video player that uses ffmpeg and is written in Qt4, and it is similar in some ways with the popular SMPlayer application. QMPlay2 has some really neat features and an interface which I found to be particularly complete, yet pretty compact.

SMPlayer is written in Qt 4.8 and uses MPlayer2 for video playback. Personally I have only words of praise for this player, which is why I decided to write this review. So let’s proceed and see what the most important features of SMPlayer are.
Although the alternatives on Linux may not be so powerful as AutoCAD, the two programs I will talk about here are free and have enough features to create 2D ample projects.
