The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
C-Dogs SDL is a port of the old DOS arcade game C-Dogs to modern operating systems. C-Dogs is an arcade shoot-em-up which lets players work alone or co-operativly during missions, and against each other in the "dogfight" deathmatch mode. The original DOS version of C-Dogs came with several built in missions and dogfight maps, and this version is no exception. The author of the DOS version of C-Dogs is Ronny Wester.
Harris is a strategy game based around the actions of RAF Bomber Command in the Second World War.

It is your responsibility to take the war to the enemy and destroy their capacity and will to wage war.
BeagleSNES is a complete filesystem image which turns the ARM-based BeagleBoard-xM and BeagleBone Black platforms into an embedded appliance capable of playing Super Nintendo game titles. It uses a modified version of the SDL port of SNES9X as its emulator, boots into a GUI frontend for selecting game titles, and uses USB gamepads as the controllers. Most titles run quite well on the platform, though some performance-intensive titles and titles which use special hardware (such as titles which use the SuperFX chip) will run too slowly to be playable. Individual BeagleSNES components (bootloader, kernel, GUI/emulator) have been broken out of the filesystem image in order to allow interested developers to examine them without having to examine the full filesystem image. Full filesystem images, as well as images containing only the BeagleSNES binary and data files, are available.
