I doubt very much that there are games that can run on Solaris, from memory KDE now works on Solaris so you can play Battleship.

Have you done a search of the forum? I'm sure there's plenty to be found here regarding supported hardware.

you might be able to find an old game called "Hack", i beleive the newest version these days is called Net Hack. Game is sort of a basic version of dungeons & dragons...pretty fun though once you get into it....its you and your dog decending level by level fighting hob goblins, bats, and other monsters. There are shops and shop keeppers to trade with....its a never ending game (have never been to the last level)

I think this started as a unix originil back in the early 80s maybe even late 70s. I first played it when I was about 9 on DOS but now it now runs on just about every a goodle search for Hack or Net Hack if interested
