Just did a bit of research (well, if you can call "apt-cache search" and "apt-cache show" research). Blob Wars, Armagetron, Battle for Wesnoth, Crimson Fields and Flightgear are all present in the currently unstable Debian (although the package description for Armagetron doesn't mention "Advanced"). There seem to be some restrictions on Cube: binaries don't match the source, and the data (artwork) is non-free (see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=165154 for details). I'm sure someone mentioning SDL Vexed on a Debian development channel would get interest from the developers (and hatred from the release managers, who don't need any new distraction to pull people away from working on the release).
