Hi, Try searching for glTron it is an OpenGL tron game. Sorry I don't have a URL for it, but if you can't find it from your favorite search engine you can try http://www.freshmeat.net or http://www.happypenguin.org
glTron at one time was quite possibly the simplest OpenGL game one could make. I think alot has been added to it though. If it has evolved too much, you might try looking for an older version.

By the way,
RTS = Real Time Straegy (Age of Empire, Sacrifice)
FPS = First Person Shooter (Counter-Strike, Quake III)

Good luck.
