You probably know that the Raspberry Pi has some games and applications already installed, like Minecraft, Mathematica, etc. To find out what Pi games are pre-installed on your device, go to the top-bar menu and find “Games” and check this section.
But this is definitely not enough and they are not the best RPI games. You would probably also want to know what else can be installed on your device. For that, you can use the Terminal and the native Raspbian commands. There is a large Repository where a lot of different pieces of software, applications, libraries and games for Raspberry Pi are kept.
you can check what games are available in the Repository. Open up the terminal and input: $ sudo apt-cache search games You will see the endless list of games as an output. Basically, the first word before the “-” sign is the title of the game. To setup the preferred game you have to scroll down the list, find it in the list and then fulfill the special command to install it on your Pi. For instance, if you wanted to install the game called Funny Boat, the command would be: $ sudo apt-get install funnyboat
