This particular top deals with the paid apps, featuring some pretty interesting newcomers.
DareUp is a new entry and takes the tenth place. It’s a wingsuit game built exclusively for Linux, in which the players have to dare to fly as close as possible to the surface and make the best scores.
Mini Minecraft Launcher still managed to remain in top and occupies the ninth place. This is a small Minecraft launcher with mods, installation support, and a nifty backup feature.
MC Launcher or the Minecraft Launcher is on the eighth place. As the name suggests, it’s an application that can be used to install various mods for Minecraft and can even do backup and restore.

Braid is on fifth and it’s the only one to remain in the same position. Players can manipulate the flow of time in order to solve some pretty difficult puzzles.
Fluendo DVD Player is on forth and it’s an application specially designed to reproduce DVD on Linux/Unix platforms, which provides end users with high quality standards.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent rests on the third place. It’s one of the scariest games ever developed, which redefined the survival horror genre, and we have a review for it.
