D1X-Rebirth is an adaptation of the engine of the DOS game Descent made by Zico for Linux. It runs very nice at 250mhz with sound.

Descent is a 3D first-person shooter video game noted for popularizing the use of true 3D rendering technology and providing the player with six full degrees of freedom (often abbreviated "6DOF") to move and to look around.
