SuperTux, the classic Super Mario clone, now on Newgrounds!

Run and jump through SuperTux, the sidescrolling 2D platformer starring Tux, the Linux mascot. Squish and knock out enemies, collect powerups, and solve platforming puzzles throughout the Icy Island and the Rooted Forest, as Tux tries to save his beloved Penny from her kidnapper, Nolok!


  • Platforming gameplay similar to original Super Mario games, with some unique abilities such as backflipping and dynamic swimming
  • Lovingly hand-crafted graphics contributed by a variety of artists, alongside engaging and catchy music
  • Engaging levels designed with casual gameplay, puzzling and speedrunning in mind
  • Weird, quirky and some not-so-adorable enemies that might be too cute to kill
  • Two full worlds packed with unique and challenging levels, castles, and boss fights
  • Other contrib levels, including seasonal worlds, storyless bonus islands, and downloadable Add-ons, which feature new and unique stories and levels
  • Simple, flexible Level Editor, which allows for the creation and sharing of levels of any complexity

In addition to the Story Mode, there is a large amount of community contributed levels available as add-ons or in the forums at https://forum.freegamedev.net/viewforum.php?f=69. Everyone can contribute such content by using the integrated level editor.

The Story: Penny Gets Captured!

Tux and Penny were out having a nice picnic on the ice fields of Antarctica. Suddenly, everything was a blur as Tux was knocked out!

When Tux wakes up, he finds that Penny is missing. Where she lay before now lies a letter. “Tux, my arch enemy!” says the letter. “I have captured your beautiful Penny and have taken her to my fortress. The path to my fortress is littered with my minions. Give up on the thought of trying to reclaim her, you haven’t got a chance! -Nolok”

Tux looks and sees Nolok’s fortress in the distance. Determined to save his beloved Penny, he begins his journey through the Icy Island and beyond.

Goddamn it, I knew it could be ported to everything.

Ah, supertux is my favorite that I play the old version 0.5.1, and finally supertux appeared in newgrounds :D
