Ok thats GCompris, well some of it anyways the above should give you a pretty good taster of whats available many of the games are versions on the theme, however if you would like further details of any of the applications available visit the [http://gcompris.net GCompris] website it will make interesting reading.
Atomix is a 1990 2D transport puzzle video game, the object of the game is to assemble molecules from compound atoms by sliding the atoms around. This has to be done in a set time limit for each level. Hardly a kids game but certainly suitable game for children to enjoy.
No homepage found sorry.
What is Kalzium, er it's the periodic table for would be chemistry bofins it is not a game like Atomix but more like a reference application tool. So would suggest you treat it as such.
