You may  have a  look at the  SDL library  (, a
powerful  cross-platform  2D   graphics  library.  Many  Linux  games,
including commercial ones, use this library.

There are (at least) two ocaml interfaces for this library:

 - one I did some time ago, no more developped, but suitable for
   relatively simple programs; 

 - another on SourceForge, probably much more developped than mine;

Hope this helps,
