Looking for recommendations, for some simple trainer style games to improve my command line skills.

Could be something similar to https://www.learnshell.org/, or even simpler. At the most basic level, I would be happy to just get a prompt, and feedback, doesn't have to be Ultima Ascension. :)

Not a game, but the Cisco NetAcad Linux book/course has an emulator built into it that is really really good, and can actually grade lab exercises.

But to keep it on topic, the games/fun stuff/challenges I recommend to my students are all from https://overthewire.org/wargames


This page offers a web-based game (which you can download) to learn basic shell cmds: Terminus, http://web.mit.edu/mprat/Public/web/Terminus/Web/main.html

Also find it on a link from her site: http://www.mprat.org/projects/terminus/

There are open issues listed at her github site: https://github.com/mprat/Terminus/issues?q=is%3Aopen

Or try searching for something like this: linux interactive bash shell tutorial game
