List of Linux ARM games

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This is an automated list of games known to have ARM executables on Linux and FreeBSD, and are thus believed to work on Raspberry Pi, BBC Micro Bit, Chromium OS, and similar single board computers and microcomputers without a need for emulators; as well as on Linux installations on mobile phones and Microsoft Surface tablets.

Notes:

  • Games are believed to support both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM, unless otherwise is specified in paranthesis below.
  • Games relying on ScummVM, RetroPie, or Box86 are excluded. ECWolf and EDuke32 are included for the time being.
  • For the purposes of distro architecture codes: armel, armhf, armv5, armv6 and armv7 are all referred to as ARM32 (even though compatibility between one another is not guaranteed), whereas aarch64 is referred to as ARM64.

Additionally, Linux ARM computers are generally able to run all games that are available from the Chrome Web Store.[1]. Running some Ren'Py games on ARM is possible by using an Arch/Debian/sourcecode Ren'Py package (but is impossible to do on Fedora or Red Hat[2]), but is almost entirely uncharted territory as of December 2021.
